    Drunk of the Week - Dave & Buster's

    Sorry, ladies, but we guys can't help how we are. We can't help it that the outfit we wore on that first date doesn't hold a prominent place in our brains. We have an inexplicable ability to watch four sporting events at one time, yet still cannot re...

    Raw Power - Hopes -- and fish -- fly high at Sushi Den.

    Life so rarely lives up to your expectations. The Big Three -- prom night, losing your virginity and your wedding day (which, in this ever-accelerating culture, can all happen in one 24-hour period if you really try hard) -- have become so built u...

    Bite Me - The Beast of Denver

    I feel like I just got rid of the weight I packed on during last year's Best of Denver exertions, and here we are again. The credit card is warmed up, I have my gastronomic Baker Street Irregulars on speed-dial, and I'm wearing my heavy-duty fat pant...

    Drink of the Week - Vodka Cranberry Lemonade

    The Campus Lounge, affectionately referred to by regulars as "The Pus," oozes character. Years ago, when I lived only a few blocks away, the gaggle of guys who occupied the house next door would yell over the fence almost nightly, "Levine, ya wanna g...

    Drunk of the Week - Elway's

    Do you believe in miracles? The continued marketing of Zima and of Aspen low-carb "beer" certainly qualify. So does having a clear conscience after excusing four nights of drinking on the pretext that "I haven't seen so-and-so for a long time." That ...

    Eating Sadam - At Denver Woodlands, comfort food is cool -- even if the critic isn't.

    I tacked the thayir sadam onto my order at the last second, no doubt hopelessly bungling the pronunciation as I tend to when I'm trying to be cool about something on a menu I've never seen before and don't know whether I'm asking for rice pudding or ...

    Bite Me - Light Up

    There's been rejoicing in the Westword hood this week over the news that the Minturn Saloon will reopen on February 17 in the storied space at 846 Broadway (just a block from this office) that had previously been home to the original Parlour restaura...

    Drink of the Week - Crown Royal and Coke

    As I walked up to the bar at the Stockyard Inn, I heard a guy ask the bartender, "Do you have anything on special?" She smiled, put her tattooed arms on her hips, pushed out her chest and replied, "You're lookin' at it, sugar." It was a scene straigh...

    Drunk of the Week

    Patrick Lawler should be awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine. For those of you who live in a cellar or are purists who won't watch anything on a TV smaller than 42 inches, Mr. Lawler is the gentleman who proved to the world that hangovers are caused...

    Whole Lotta Love - Ristorante Amore is all thumbs -- and that's good.

    Greg Goldfogel, owner of Ristorante Amore, was on the phone, and we were talking about gnocchi. We were talking a lot about gnocchi, which might surprise someone not steeped to the neck in the lore and weird obsessions of the kitchen. Because, really...

    Bite Me - Right Now

    I spent quite a bit of time on the blower last week with Greg Goldfogel from Ristorante Amore (see review), and although a good portion of our conversations centered on gnocchi, that wasn't all we talked about. We discussed Amore's expansion, which w...

    Drink of the Week - Crystal Snooker

    The sign above the Thin Man's bar warned: "Drunkenness prohibited." That appealed to the rule-breaker in me, so...game on! I ordered the first thing I saw on the blackboard, the Crystal Snooker ($5.50), made with homemade cinnamon vodka and half sour...

    Drunk of the Week - Restaurant Japon

    There's no doubt in my mind that God created beer. How else can you explain many of the world's greatest accomplishments? Without beer, we wouldn't have professional sports, much less overlapping schedules that allow us to watch the World Series and ...

    Only in America - Brooks Smokehouse Bar-B-Que is pleased to meat you.

    Americans like to take credit for things -- but culinarily, we're screwed. Almost everything we eat, good or bad, comes from somewhere else. What's worse, most of the great things we eat come from the Europeans (the French, in particular) and we'...

    Bite Me - Home Run

    There's this nugget of dubious wisdom espoused by a certain breed of foodies that holds that if it weren't for the French (with Saint Julia as their envoy), the vast majority of Americans would still be eating canned corn, sliced ham steaks topped wi...

    Drink of the Week - Zubrowka Bison Brand Vodka

    My friend Matt was bragging about what a fabulous bowler he is, crediting his Polish heritage for his prowess. Yeah, bowling was fine, I told him, but what about a more practical ethnic legacy, like a thorough knowledge of Polish vodka? Rising to the...

    Drunk of the Week - Lucky Strike Lanes

    Old Spice - Tosh's Hacienda was once the taco the town. But no more.

    Drink of the Week - Laphroaig 10 Year Old
