    Bite Me - Birth Pains

    If 240 Union (see review) is a model for how a restaurant makes it into middle age, then Steak au Poivre (in the old, subterranean Manhattan Grill space at 231 Milwaukee Street) exemplifies why so few places reach an age where they can be called "ven...

    Drink of the Week - McCormikazi

    For some pathetic reason, every time I go to a great happy hour I encounter an unhappy old flame. So far, the only spot that's escaped this curse is McCormick's in the corner of the Oxford Hotel -- and its happy-hour deal is so good that I'd be willi...

    Drunk of the Week - Chili's

    Corporate America seems intent on demeaning society. I discovered this recently while paging through Cosmo to a) find out what a pig I am, b) see guy "sex secrets" revealed to women who must have been raised in a convent or closet, and c) reaffirm th...

    Second Helping - Old School Burgers

    When this spot was known as Burgers-n-Sports, before last year's run-in with In-N-Out attorneys, it was a great burger joint, serving waxed-paper-wrapped singles and doubles, excellent hand-cut fries and killer milkshakes, all under the watchful gaze...

    Life and Death - The re-animator resurrects traditional tapas at The 9th Door.

    I love zombie movies. Of all the filmmakers in the world, I feel the most kinship with the guys who make zombie movies -- freakish, obsessive man-children who know how to guiltlessly tell a ripping good yarn and who never got over that visceral thril...

    Bite Me - Opening Doors

    I ate my first two official meals at The 9th Door (see review) while the kitchen was still technically under the command of Michel Wahaltere, and was ready to file my review when I got the news that he was leaving the kitchen he'd set up. "For the re...

    Drunk of the Week - Handlebar & Grill

    It's that bittersweet time of year when we must say goodbye to certain members of the Institute of Drinking Studies as they move on to greater responsibility, more disposable income and, with any luck, more time between binge-drinking bouts. While th...

    Second Helping - Somethin' Else

    Sean Kelly and his chef, Seth Black, have been doing the Tapas Thing (see Bite Me<>/a>) for quite some time. They may have been the first in town -- this time around, at least -- to take the trend seriously, and they built the entire Somethin' Else m...

    Meditations in Red - I carry a torch for tiki bars and Twin Dragon.

    This is your father's bad toupee. It's a leisure suit, lovingly tended and preserved and worn regularly by a guy who still thinks he looks good. It's an old Volvo kept running by unconditional love and duct tape, the ABBA record you listen to when no...

    Bite Me - Fat City Chops

    A critic's lament: Maybe I shouldn't be so pissed off. After all, the Aspen Food & Wine Classic, which wrapped up June 12, did invite twice as many Colorado chefs as it had in 2004. Problem is, last year it invited exactly one -- Goose Sorenson from ...

    Drink of the Week - Pootie Tang

    Exactly what the trendy (read: expensive) bars around the corner along Larimer Square needed: a front porch. The Front Porch is a beautiful yet comfortable sanctuary for twentysomethings, like your coolest friend's parents' basement, complete with Pl...

    Drunk of the Week - Bob's Steak and Chop House

    Numerous traits separate the men from the guys. Men come up with sensitive gifts to present their dates, surreptitiously hoping to buy a night in their company. Guys look on such behavior as brown-nosing; a guy's date is lucky if he shows up on time ...

    Second Helping - P.F. Chang's China Bistro

    Just because you're not part of the problem doesn't mean you're part of the solution. I've become increasingly tired of Chinese restaurants claiming some sort of special capacity for greatness simply because they aren't part of a chain. Most independ...

    Changing Course - How I learned to stop worrying and love seitan.

    My first visit to WaterCourse Foods was on a bet. It was a bet with myself -- a wager between my better and worse natures that revolved around my good self's belief that every restaurant, no matter its kink, offers something tasty to those willing to...

    Bite Me - Having Your Cake

    Me happy in a vegetarian restaurant (see review) is weird, but how's this for mind-blowing: me fucking ecstatic in a full-on vegan bakery. I have spent years walking the earth like Caine in the old Kung Fu series, roving around the countryside in ...

    Drink of the Week - Mint Julep

    I've never understood why certain food and drink specialties are available just once a year. Do I only crave Cadbury Creme Eggs at Easter? Do I only want candy corn around Halloween, candy canes at Christmas? Had McDonald's kept its Shamrock Shake on...

    Drunk of the Week - Atomic Cowboy

    On a midweek foray to the Atomic Cowboy (3235 East Colfax Avenue), I quickly ingratiated myself with one of the waitresses and got some background on the joint -- because that's the kind of Woodward-and-Bernstein journalist I am. "Why is it called...

    Second Helping - Spicy Basil

    Bad business, like bad karma, generates its own sort of poison. The taint of failed enterprise can linger for years in the floorboards and hood vents of a space, sickening and killing new businesses indiscriminately. Realtors, consultants, accountant...

    Dinner and a Show - A meal at the West End Tavern is the living end.

    Sitting on the patio on top of the West End Tavern, gazing at the great view (and I'm not just talking about the unparalleled sight of the Flatirons), I sipped whiskey and smoked a cigarette in one of the few places where you still can in Boulder, an...

    Bite Me - Tavern Talk

    Creating a financially successful tavern isn't tough. Aside from a ham-and-cheese-sandwich joint that gives away free booze and hand jobs, no restaurant venture offers a better rate of return than your average tavern, and unless you're a congenitally...
