    Drunk of the Week - Sucked into the Vortex

    The crucial question of the morning: Does anybody remember how I cut my hand? I, unfortunately, have no idea -- because last night, we entered the Vortex. That's a term coined by some friends to describe how things tend to spin out of control when...

    Love Is All You Need - Be patriotic: Eat at Bambino's.

    What is patriotism but the love of good things we ate in our childhood?" wondered Lin Yutang. Lin, I'm guessing, was not thinking about fettuccine alfredo when he wrote that, but I am. I'm thinking about gloppy alfredo sauce out of a jar from the ...

    Bite Me - Something to Chew On

    That Lin Yutang quote on the menu at Bambino's reminded me of other famous words on food by folks considerably brighter than myself. In particular, it reminded me of this long lovely from M.F.K. Fisher in The Gastronomical Me: "People ask me: why...

    Consumed - Leg Man

    Trust the System - Bear Creek Tavern delivers much more than the bare necessities.

    There's a method -- rigorously tested and refined by my friend Andy, an old kitchen buddy -- for determining the quality of a Mexican restaurant before you even sit down. It's quick, scientific and nearly foolproof, and it simply calls for tallying t...

    Bite Me - By the Numbers

    Hard-luck stories are like gold in this business. We -- reporters, not cooks (for a change) -- live on this stuff. I mean, who wants to read a story about some guy who went to a bank, got a loan, opened a restaurant and lived comfortably ever after? ...

    Drink of the Week - Hot & Cold Margarita

    Hipsters have a new hangout: Cielo, the upscale Mexican eatery now open on Lincoln Street that specializes in hot crowds and cool cocktails. After making my way through the roster of ten signature margaritas, my drink of choice is the Hot & Cold Marg...

    Drunk of the Week

    Sometimes it's good to be a doctor. The other night in LoDo, for example, when those tens of thousands of dollars in tuition debt came in handy for diagnosing a medical emergency. It was a beautiful night, although apparently the folks at Rio Gran...

    A Tale of Two Phillies - Man does not live by bread alone -- it's what's sandwiched inside that counts.

    Remember Murphy Brown? I used to watch it a lot, because it was a show about reporters, and since I wanted to be a reporter someday, I considered that research. I didn't know any actual journalists back then -- the closest I came was a high school jo...

    Drink of the Week - Pink Lipstick

    Sandwiched between the ultra-hip Lola and the perennially chi-chi Sushi Den, the Pearl Street Grill is an old-school oasis for easygoing drinkers. So why would I go in there and order a Pink Lipstick? Because in addition to offering a wide selection ...

    Another Roadside Attraction - Let Jalapeo Mexican Grill transport you to Jurez.

    Christ, it's hot. A zillion degrees hot, and this is the thing about Colorado that they never put in the tourist brochures. It's all mountains and deep powder in the winter ads, young ski bunnies with wind-pinked cheeks. In the summer, it's sun-dappl...

    Drink of the Week - Old Man and the Sea

    For me, summertime means lazy afternoons lying on the dock or sailing the Great Lakes. So when my craving for liquid refreshment overflowed one recent evening, I gathered a few fellow Midwesterners and headed to the back patio at Hemingway's Key West...

    Drunk of the Week - Las Margaritas

    Good, and Good for You - It's easy being green at Sunflower.

    I approached Sunflower like a nervous hunting dog: my nose in the air, all my hair on end. From half a block away, I tried to suss out the vibe of the joint, watching the crowds milling around the doors and patio, sniffing the breeze for any hint of ...

    Bite Me - Green Achers

    Let's get something straight: It's not vegetarians that I hate (I was one for a while), or even the idea of vegetarian cooking. It's vegetarianism -- like Catholicism or Republicanism -- that gets my blood up. It's the big, heaping portion of politic...

    Drink of the Week - Dirty Martini
