    Consumed - Smashing Pumpkins

    When Joe Scherber tells you his pumpkin patch produced just three pumpkins this year, it sounds like his crop was a bust. But together those three pumpkins weigh over 2,220 pounds, making the Wheat Ridge dentist one of the most fruitful pumpkin growe...

    Bit by Bit - Triana needs to try harder.

    Stepping off the crowded Pearl Street Mall and into Triana is like burying your face in a flamenco dancer's best dress or jumping into a pile of autumn leaves. Fiery reds and oranges explode in this small space. The ceiling is painted black, a dark s...

    Bite Me - In the Suds

    Blurry, at best: That's how I remember my one-night stagger through the Great American Beer Festival, the 21st incarnation of this beer-sodden extravaganza. But it was my first encounter with the GABF, and being the responsible young reporter that I ...

    Drink of the Week - Fiji Blossom

    No bar in Denver celebrates the good life like the elegant art-deco Cruise Room, located off the lobby of the 111-year-old Oxford Hotel. Opened with much celebration on the day that Prohibition was repealed, this long, narrow lounge is still unmatche...

    Deli Dally - DiDi dishes up a little bit of everything -- and something for everyone.

    The strip mall looked half-dead. There was a scruffy guy dressed Unabomber style in a hooded sweatshirt and cheap, wraparound mirrored sunglasses loitering outside the liquor store, and a bunch of contractors in hard hats standing at the squat little...

    Bite Me - Herz Tries Harder

    The restaurant space at 250 Josephine Street, former home of Papillon Cafe, has been the focus of much speculation lately. Since Radek Cerny suddenly closed Papillon's doors a few months ago, there have been hunches on top of rumors frosted with out-...

    Drink of the Week - Margarita Oro

    Start saving your pesos: A night at Tamayo, Larimer Square's upscale, modern Mexican cantina, could wind up costing you a pretty penny. Or leave work early, because hora feliz, Tamayo's version of happy hour, is one of the town's best bargains. From ...

    Foreign Intrigue - Travel uncharted culinary seas at Ocean City Restaurant.

    Do you remember your first Chinese meal? Think back to your introduction to egg rolls and the virgin sting of soy sauce on your tongue. Did they feel like foreign foods to you then? Did the words wonton, chow mein and moo goo gai pan feel as strange ...

    Bite Me - Secret Agents

    After a little snooping, I found a few places besides Ocean City Restaurant (see review, page 69) where the adventurous chow hound can go for an authentic taste of China. Pavilion (3333 South Tamarac Drive) has a secret, second menu that features Chi...

    Consumed - Yeast of Eden

    This weekend, over 20,000 beer nuts will invade the Colorado Convention Center for the Great American Beer Festival, raising toasts to the brewing artisans who craft their precious drink. But the tippling throng should be hoisting a glass to the unsu...

    With ceiling fans spinning lazily over the old wooden bar, sexy bartenders, and Gloria Gaynor blasting from the speakers, JR.'s is the perfect place to spend a naughty night. This is definitely one of Denver's most happening gay bars, and the Blow Jo...

    The Brains of the Operation - El Taco de Mxico goes to the head of the class.

    So where'd you go for lunch?" I asked. "We ended up at El Taco de Mxico -- it's got real Mexican Mexican food. You been there yet?" I shook my head. I've been eating like a pig since I came to town a few months ago, and despite the fact that I ...

    Bite Me - Luca Streak

    I talked with Frank Bonanno of Mizuna (225 East Seventh Avenue) last week about...well, about just about everything, really. Sushi, restaurant design, the economy, why people eat foie gras, how to keep and feed your waitstaff. Most important, we ha...

    Small Bites - Pico de Gallo

    Gutsy, that's what it is. Opening any restaurant in any location on any day takes guts, but opening a small Mexican joint (of which there are already roughly 17 million in the Denver area) in the middle of a recession that has seen restaurants large ...

    Business Class - Trinity Grille still has the feel -- and the food -- of a men's club.

    Not too long ago, going out to eat meant just that: leaving your house and going someplace where someone unrelated to you would do the cooking. It was a simple process, requiring nothing of the diner except an appetite and a wallet. You didn't need t...

    Bite Me - Out of the Bleu.

    Singapore for Your Supper - Two restaurants add up to one great Malaysian meal.
