    Drunk of the Week - Hops Grillhouse and Brewery

    Things have officially gotten out of hand in America. Entering Super Target the other day with my daughter, Allison, I noticed a prominent display of the next entry in the Hello Kitty line of kids' stuff, which already includes keychains, videos, cra...

    Give and Take - I can't wait to go back to Zengo.

    The kitchen at Zengo is a mess, a riot of white jackets, ice and fire. I count six, eight, maybe as many as ten cooks bouncing, spinning in place, shuffling plates and pans and sheet trays; hear raised voices -- no particular words, just the sharp ca...

    Bite Me - Booze News

    Six weeks have passed since Colorado's new booze legislation took effect -- the give-a-little/take-a-little double whammy of decreased blood-alcohol levels for drunk-driving offenses (a .08 limit now, down from the somewhat more forgiving .10) and th...

    Drink of the Week - Guava Fruit Pure Cocktail

    I don't know if it was the cocktail waitress's cheerleader voice or the fact that she called me "ma'am" three times prior to actually delivering my drink, but I detested her from the start. At what point do you become a "ma'am" or a "sir"? Yes, I was...

    Drunk of the Week - Chez Jose

    It's human nature to try to improve upon past accomplishments. We strive to improve our work skills, our time in the mile, our driving so that we don't singlehandedly snarl traffic on Colorado Boulevard from I-70 to I-25, our dancing moves so that we...

    The Truck Stops Here - I brake for breakfast at Johnson's Corner.

    My buddy Gracie and I have this map -- a U.S. highway diagram torn from the front of an old Rand McNally atlas, showing all of the major interstate routes spooling out across the fruited plain. From I-95's start in Florida's malarial salt bogs to the...

    The Answer Man

    Questions for "Ask the Critic" have come from all corners of the restaurant cosmos this month. A sampling: Q: Enough about Sean Kelly. Whatever happened to Denver's other famous chef named Sean -- Sean Yontz? I know that Vega closed, but is he co...

    Vodka Mortini Morton's 1710 Wynkoop Street 303-825-3353 Shaken, not stirred -- James Bond was on the money. Scientists at the University of Western Ontario have found that shaking a martini increases the antioxidant activity in the drink, w...

    Drunk of the Week

    When you wake up after a night of carousing, two questions should emerge from your clouded mind: 1) Where am I? 2) Who am I with? After our visit to the Denver Tech Center's b>Purple Martini\b> (8000 East Belleview Avenue, Greenwood Village)...

    Simple Pleasures - Kassai Sushi raises street food to the level of art.

    Japanese cartoons are lysergic-acid freak shows of giant robots and big-eyed children, blinking lights and talking cats, and jumpy, herky-jerky dancing-root vegetables. Japanese porno is vile and fetishistic. Japanese punk music is ten times more scr...

    Bite Me - Man About Town

    While out wandering a few weeks ago, I stumbled across the Bugling Bull Trading Post out on Highway 67, west of Sedalia, where I had one of the best orders of country-style ribs of my young life. Granted, I wasn't looking for ribs: I'd muscled the ca...

    Drink of the Week - Washington Apple Martini

    After a game of golf out by DIA, friends suggested a drink at the nearest bar: Outback Steakhouse. Hey, any port in a storm. But the second I stepped inside, my disdain for mid-level chain restaurants came flooding back like a repressed memory. Can s...

    Drunk of the Week - Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse

    Happy hour is one of the greatest inventions in history. If you're really honest with yourself, I think you'll agree that only wide-screen TVs, frozen pizza rolls, propane barbecue grills and Victoria's Secret compare. And like the last of these, hap...

    Patty Melt - In this heat, only a cheeseburger will do. A great one, like the cheeseburger at Bud's.

    Cheeseburgers are the single most recognizable American contribution to the world culinary scene (and, according to a monument on Speer Boulevard, an actual Denver invention). They're also the ideal thing to eat on a blazing-hot afternoon. So las...

    Bite Me - Kelly's Lune Eclipse

    What can I tell you? Clair de Lune is definitely not going to make it through the summer." I've been waiting for this call for weeks. Not sitting by the phone, exactly, but knowing it's coming. And when it does, it's like hearing that the relation...

    Drink of the Week - Shochu-tini

    A large Buddha behind the bar in the Tom Tom Room, formerly the site of Tommy Tsunami's, was supposed to be enveloped in smoke, but after a few sputters and grunts, it was clear that the Buddha had performance anxiety. Happily, this was the only perf...

    Drunk of the Week - Delaney's

    LoDo has bars for every mood. I have a favorite or two where, during football season, I start pouring down Bloody Marys at 11 a.m. Although they are harder to find, a few other LoDo venues are guaranteed to inspire such a night of debauchery that you...

    Boulder Blahs - The Kitchen puts the flat in the Flatirons.

    There are a few things that I like about Boulder and many that I don't. For example, it bothers me that Boulder exists where it does, snugged up tight against the base of the Flatirons, frantically humping the leg of a mountain range that would be th...
