    3 Sons - Once more unto the breach

    When I wrote my original review of 3 Sons ("Same Old, Same Old," September 11, 2003), people called me an assassin. They called me a thug and an asshole and a brainless, potty-mouthed jerkoff who didn't know nothin' from nothin'. What I didn't get wa...

    Shakin' Bacon - Masalaa makes good food that happens to be good for you.

    It's not often that a fellow like myself -- a dedicated carnivore, shameless bacon addict, fan of all things larded, bloody and fat-spackled -- goes looking for health food. Ten cups of coffee a day, taken as preventative medicine against potential l...

    Family Plan - Don't try this at home.

    The problem wasn't so much that we were drinking, but that neither of us had really stopped in a couple of days. When my little brother and I get together back home -- as annually as we can manage -- drinking is just what we do. It's not to excess...

    Spanky's Roadhouse - Food, fun and Farley

    I believe Spanky's Roadhouse (1800 East Evans Avenue) chose its name in hopes of generating buzz before patrons even crossed the threshold. Whenever anyone who was born at least twenty years ago hears the word "roadhouse," he immediately thinks of th...

    Mama's House - For Ghanaian immigrants, there's no place like home.

    Mama T is leaving. She's moving to Cincinnati, where her husband is working a factory job now, where there's another apartment waiting, another community expecting her. She's going with her son Rafael, and she's taking her pots and pans. She's tak...

    Pumpkin Pie Martini - swimclub 32

    Drink of the week? We were looking for the drink of the season, and it wasn't going down all that well. Twenty-eight restaurants had signed up for the Denver Convention & Visitors Bureau's first Mile High Libations contest -- that added up to 31 drin...

    Five in 2005 - For restaurants, this was a very good year.

    I consider it one of the great fortunes of my life that, for as long as I have been my own man, I have never had a normal year -- one that could be anticipated, seen through end to end, navigated on an even keel. All of my years have been strange and...

    Finding Nemo - I'm in way over my head at the Aquarium.

    I have not always been a good guy, and I have not always lived a good life. I have committed sins venial, carnal and culinary, have knowingly done wrong and sometimes enjoyed it quite a bit. I have vices, secret shames, public hatreds, a checkered pa...

    Fish Story - Raising a stink over aquarium eateries.

    Okay, so it's not very often that I come down on the same side intellectually and ideologically as the folks from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. As a matter of fact, it's not very often that I can stand to be in the same room with any o...

    Charbay Green Tea Vodka Martini - Brix

    I recently started working out with a personal trainer named Michael. When I complain that the weights are too heavy, Michael tells me that he confused my weights with those of "Mrs. Peterson, who is eighty years old and just entered assisted living....

    Party Time - Make mine a stiffie.

    'Tis the season when it's socially acceptable to act like someone who hit puberty and was given the keys to a brand-new muscle car on the same day. The culmination of this season is the office Christmas party, which rivals revealing government secret...

    Happy Meal - Find your way to Eat Street.

    Unlike Aquarium -- the fish restaurant at the Downtown Aquarium (see review) -- Eat Street at the Denver Children's Museum is not serving any of its less successful exhibits for lunch. Nor did operators Jay and Emily Solomon (who also own the nearby ...

    Intelligent Design - The Coral Room is an exotic addition to Stapleton.

    Planned communities creep me out. It's something about their zero-down homogeneity, the Stepford-ness of their razor-straight streets and perfectly manicured medians, their covenant controls and faux-utopian doubleplusgood Orwellian weirdness. It'...

    Hey, Santa - Stephen Anson knows how to handle a crisis.

    I don't spill a lot of ink writing about chefs and restaurants doing charity events. A lot of you probably think that's because I'm a miserable, Scrooge-ish crank full of spite and humbuggery. And while I certainly am, the real reason I don't keep tr...

    The Knockout - Sullivan's Steakhouse

    After those recent, regrettable shootings in LoDo, a friend remarked that the area has been taken over by juvenile delinquents and that there's nowhere to take older workmates or parents for a cocktail. I was blown away by this comment. LoDo is chock...

    Cafe Bisque - New and improved

    This is a good week. Why? Because Second Helping is finally getting to do what I'd always hoped it would do: give a second shot to a restaurant savaged in a previous review, a place that's now worthy of being welcomed into the fold. Although many of ...

    The World Is Flat - Get an Argentine pizza the action at Buenos Aires.

    Up to this point, I had given about as much thought to the foods of Argentina as I had to the high peaks of Cincinnati or the beaches of Kansas. And I had given about as much thought to Argentina in general as I had to Victorian haberdashery or the m...

    AquaDeath - The Cherry Cricket
