    Dog Days - You never sausage a thing.

    A round noon, my phone rings. "Is this Jason Sheehan?" "Yes." "You're the restaurant guy?" "That's me. What can I do for you?" "Man, I don't know if you've been there yet, but I've got to tell you about this..." About this new sushi...

    Black Velvet - Corridor 44

    Only a few weeks ago, I besmirched champagne cocktails, questioning a man's sexuality because he'd ordered a "girl drink." Now, however, I must drink my words, because not only is Corridor 44 the swankiest, most posh and glamorous spot to hit Denver ...

    Brix - A run-in with Gulden Dreck -- er, Draak.

    Has anyone seen an escaped monkey? I've been scouring the papers for such information since a night at Brix (3000 East Third Avenue), when the little simian that has plagued periods of my drinking career was on the loose, relieving himself in my mout...

    Mickeys Top Sirloin - Good steak, great price. What's not to like?

    When I stopped by the new, improved Mickey's Top Sirloin for lunch last week (a few months ago, it had moved from its decrepit, decades-old home across the parking lot to a shiny, family-friendly, cookie-cutter space with bright-green corrugated sidi...

    On a Roll - This Fontana Sushi goes its own way.

    Eels and tofu, sweet raw shrimp and tuna head and giant clam -- I eat it all. Flying-fish eggs, as alien to a suburban rust-belt brat as eating asbestos or living on freon and Pixy Stix, are now a regular part of my diet. They get caught in my teeth ...

    Beyond Borders - The Chen Brothers offer a pan-Asian experience at Blue Moon.

    The Chen brothers didn't just take on an awkward strip-mall space when they made their break from the chain and opened the renegade Fontana Sushi in Littleton (see review). They also picked up one of the more unusual Sushi Basho locations -- a former...

    Saketini - Sushi Sasa

    Childless by Choice. I don't hate children. In fact, at times I find them as cute as puppies. I love my niece and nephew even when they are terrors, and I've developed relationships with some of my friends' children that are so enjoyable, I'd actuall...

    Darcys Bistro and Pub - Youre as young as you feel.

    We here at the Institute of Drinking Studies regard alcohol as a wonderful tool in the battle against age. With a few on board, it's easy to recall those days when you felt invincible and even your most moronic antics seemed funny to you and occasion...

    Fontana Sushi - Catch up on the classics.

    While the Chen brothers now have their own Fontana Sushi in Littleton (see review, page 57), former partner Kevin Lin continues to run the original Fontana Sushi in central Denver. The two Fontanas have similar menus -- both places offer tempura and ...

    Jolly Rancher - McLoughlins Restaurant & Bar

    U-ROC. Every bartender should have a signature drink -- and I'm not talking about a "great" Cosmo. How about a little originality? And while we're at it, how about a cocktail that isn't so sweet it induces diabetes? I'm going to give the bartender at...

    Pour House Pub - Old home week

    When women get together after a long separation, their discussion seems to focus on who's pregnant, married, divorced, cheating and/or fat. Men discuss who's seducing their secretaries, how much money they're making, the latest "sweet" deal they clos...

    L&L Hawaiian Barbecue - Lei it on!

    I had barbecue on the brain this week, and stopped by a spot that nearly killed me on my first visit just from the sheer volume of food a ten-spot can buy. L&L Hawaiian Barbecue has been around in its current incarnation since 1976 -- a Big Island ma...

    Two for the Road - I brake for barbecue.

    We saw Hog Heaven Bar-B-Que coming from a distance. Laura and I had been out wandering -- ostensibly making a quick, up-and-back run over Guanella Pass to see the aspens changing like good Coloradans, to ooh and aah over the foliage along with severa...

    Almost Famous - The man, the legend, the ribs.

    I have always lived and worked under the precept that too much is never enough. Too much food, too much drink, too much fun. No one ever wants to hear the story about the guy who had just enough of something and then called it a night. This week, ...

    Come to Papas - Los Cabos II stirs up Peru's culinary history.

    They asked if I spoke Spanish when I first walked into Los Cabos II, the beautiful Peruvian restaurant-slash-social club hidden behind the ugly facade at 15th and Champa streets. And I do, sort of. Mostly kitchen Spanish, which -- if you cut out all ...

    Basil Mojito - Panzano

    Careful, dude, it's creeper weed. A football player named Mike always showed up to our high school English class with about a dozen assorted candy bars. He'd start out looking a little squinty-eyed, then gradually become stoned out of his gourd as th...

    Shine On - Cafe Star has real star power.

    "Lucky Star." "Shining Star!" "The Star Chamber." "Enough," I said. "Star Quality!" I held up a hand. "That just sucks. Okay, who's got that key lime thing?" The decimated remains of a key lime tart were passed my way, and I pressed...
