    Drink of the Week - Bucket of Corona

    In Mexico, I do what every travel guide tells you not to do -- I eat food bought on the street. Have I gotten sick? Yes, very. Was it worth it? Absolutely. At the restaurants that cater to the vacationing hordes, you can't find any of this street far...

    Drunk of the Week - Dr. Etiquette

    Q: What does the Institute of Drinking Studies recommend after a monumentally bad week? A week that leaves you bruised, battered and trying to get the footprints off your back from life running roughshod over your carcass? A week where the only thing...

    Adventures in Eating - It's a bad, bad, bad, bad world -- when you're dining at L.D. Buffet.

    I believe that life, in all its brutish, stupid grandeur, is the ultimate extreme sport. Forget mountain biking, snowboarding and base jumping. You just haven't lived until you've Indian leg-wrestled a hungry Russian grandmother over the last fistful...

    Bite Me - Rice Checks

    Shrimp and chicken shao mai; steamed duck spring rolls dipped in warm soy; short ribs with red onions in a scallop sauce; a whole striped bass, split, head and tail mounted on opposite ends of the plate and served with the tender filets soaking in a ...

    Drink of the Week - Go Fish

    I hated all card games as a kid, but the true bane of my existence was the mind-numbing Go Fish. Even before I started losing brain cells from a combination of booze, age and bad genes, memory was never one of my strengths. And now the Go Fish Grille...

    Drunk of the Week - Pearl Street Grill

    Every day, it becomes increasingly obvious that those in power count on citizen apathy to let them skate by with policies that pander to special interests and are out of touch with the average American. How else can you explain the continued presence...

    Send in the Crowds - Dario's kitchen does things right -- even if there's no one to appreciate it.

    Saturday night should be busy. Cute place like this, good food, service that's old-American doting without being old-French smothering -- Dario's Restaurant should be running the edge of a full house, playing the curve of table turns so that every pa...

    Bite Me - Russia to Judgment

    Some weird geopolitical analogies about the shifting influences of power and turf can be applied to Denver's ever-changing restaurant scene. Not so much by the big openings and closings and the movements of recognizable chefs and restaurateurs, but b...

    Drink of the Week - Strawberry Mojito

    After too many jobs that required way too much travel, I try to avoid hotel bars. They depress me. They're usually filled with smoke and professional salesmen who spend 90 percent of their lives on the road and typically believe that their marriage v...

    Drunk of the Week - Mel's Restaurant and Bar

    Whatever happened to customer service? Bars don't have Guinness on tap. I get soggy fries at McDonald's. If I'm out eating with five other people, the restaurant assumes that group-think has ruined our math skills and tacks a 15 percent tip on the ta...

    Bland of Enchantment - The New Mexican food at Julia Blackbird's falls flat.

    Of Earth and Spirit is how I describe my style of cooking. The foods chosen are pure and of the Earth; they are intended to be food for the spirit as well as sustenance. They have been prepared for generations by the distinctive combination of Native...

    Bite Me - Dinner and a Movie

    Movies and food, food and movies. Would I have enjoyed Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Cafe (see review, page 61) had it not been for the unfortunate mention of Like Water for Chocolate on the menu? Not likely. Still, there should be a rule in the rest...

    Drink of the Week - Gocce di Limone

    Jerry Seinfeld once imparted these words of wisdom: When you hit that high note, say goodnight and walk off. So for my final act as Drink of the Week girl, I gathered a group of faithful friends and headed to Moda Ristorante & Lounge for several roun...

    Drunk of the Week - Squealing Pig Irish Pub

    Consumed - Here's the Beef

    Most people who wear cowboy hats in Colorado are, as one variation of the saying goes, "all hat and no cowboy." But now these wannabes can put some beef under their brim and gain a certain cowpoke credibility, thanks to Hollingsworth Land and Cattle'...

    Drink of the Week - Havana Special

    Summer nights seem so right for a little Latin lovin'. And since my blue-eyed, blond-haired boyfriend doesn't exactly fill that bill, when I'm in the mood for Caribbean spice I hit the twinkling patio at Cuba Cuba for a Havana Special ($6.50). A rece...

    Drunk of the Week - The Bank Bar & Grille

    I've been in bars all over the world, and good bars are pretty much the same no matter where you find them. They're all dark, smoky -- as long as you're not in the People's Republic of Boulder -- and serve greasy food. Everywhere I've gone, even Bahr...

    Lots of Luck - Spicy Basil serves good food in a space with bad karma.

    Back when I was hungry and vicious and always questing after dumb-luck fortune in the galleys and basement kitchens of this country, I could smell doom in a restaurant a mile away. It was a survival mechanism then, learned rather than instinctive, th...

    Bite Me - Pasta Lives

    The in-laws were in town again recently. It was just a quick visit, a few very busy days of catching up and shooting the breeze, punctuated (of course) by meals. Lots and lots of meals. That's the thing about visiting me and Mrs. Critic -- no matter ...

    Steaking a Claim - What's old is new again at Emil-Lene's.

    Here's what Emil-Lene's Sirloin House is missing: a really big steak. Not just a big steak -- big steaks it's got. There's a 16-ounce sirloin on the board, a 10-ounce prime rib that's cut so generously it takes up half a plate, even a 24- ounce T-...
