    Bite Me - Bake Off

    On my visits to Nine75 (see review), I pretty much avoided the desserts -- and not because I was watching my trim and girlish figure. No, I skipped the massive slabs of peanut butter-chocolate cake and individual apple mini-pies (dressed with mint le...

    Drink of the Week - Don't Name Your Fucking Kid After Me

    Shake it like you got it. Herman's Hideaway was the first live-music venue I got into with a fake ID. As a Denver teen who hadn't traveled much, I imagined that it was our version of New York's legendary CBGB, the thoroughly hip and cool place to see...

    Drunk of the Week - Capitol Lounge

    Planning a wedding is a big job for a bride and her family. They have to decide on the service, the flowers, the wedding-party members, the date, the reception hall, the menu, the availability of alcohol, the invitations, the tuxedos, the bridesmaid ...

    Second Helping - Mao Asian Bistro and Sushi Lounge

    During the first months of Mao's existence, developer-turned-restaurateur Jim Sullivan (yeah, the same Sullivan behind Nine75, reviewed this week) probably took more heat than any other owner in town has taken for the opening of anything. Restaurants...

    Hot Dog! - My wife's an Old Fashioned girl.

    One of the reasons I'm staying married to Laura for the rest of my life: She's got a real good eye for hot dogs. And it's not just hot dogs, either. She can suss out a decent Mexican spot from a block away, will know -- with just a glance and a sn...

    Bite Me - That's All, Folks

    Following service this past Saturday, Adega suddenly went dark. It came as a helluva shock. I mean, this was Adega. No place in the city had gotten better reviews locally or more love from the national press than this hip outpost at the corner of ...

    Drink of the Week - Ultimate Arnold Palmer

    There was this one time, at band camp.... John Burr has had a lot of big ideas. In 1993 he established Soundstructure Studios, providing spaces where acts can rehearse at full tilt without hearing the music of the band next door or subjecting their n...

    Drunk of the Week - Las Margaritas Uptown

    We here at the Institute of Drinking Studies got into journalism for the same reason as Woodward and Bernstein, George Will and Woody Paige: to get girls. We're still big fans of hard-hitting reportage, and when we see something like the piece 20/20 ...

    Second Helping - Diana's Greek Market and Deli

    Chicken-fried steak, chicken-fried steak, chicken-fried steak, gyros. All through lunch and well into the afternoon, this is what customers keep asking for at Diana's Greek Market and Deli. Three out of five orders (and sometimes five out of every fi...

    A Lobster Tale - A meal at Del Mar's is a real crab shoot.

    I'm not going to order lobster anymore. Or perhaps I'll just limit myself to lobster once a year. Twice, tops. One of the quirks of this very strange job is that every food-related luxury, every delicacy, every rare and wonderful thing is now ...

    Bite Me - Herz Tries Harder

    After my disastrous meals at Del Mar Crab House (see review), I started feeling nostalgic for the simple, rookie mistakes of Go Fish Grille, a seafood restaurant that I'd given a mixed review back in December. In comparison to the terrible, terrible ...

    Drink of the Week - Twisted Mojito

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. The minute I set foot in the Donkey Den, I thought about the old joke where Saint Peter lets a man try both Heaven and Hell in order to decide where he'd prefer to spend eternity. He goes to Heaven first, and w...

    Drunk of the Week - Emma's

    We here at the Institute of Drinking Studies have determined that good bars are more a state of mind than a physical place. Good bars share similar attributes: not just plentiful booze, but an atmosphere that suits your mood and purpose on a particul...

    Second Helping - Japon

    I have only one problem with Japon: the wasabi. It tastes chalky, pasty and dry, and its texture affects me like nails on a chalkboard. And since I've been known to order tekka maki to go just as an excuse to eat wasabi off my finger, a sushi bar's w...

    All in the Family - Gaetano's makes for a disappointing spaghetti Western.

    In this cash-and-carry world, nothing is inviolate and everything is for sale. Even memory. Especially memory. There's good money to be made in strip-mining nostalgia, and for those who find a ripe vein -- like the folks at Wynkoop Holdings, who move...

    Bite Me - Ital Do

    While Gaetano's (see review) makes a Mafia Disneyland out of this town's Italian heritage, Patsy's, another northwest Denver institution a few blocks away, at 3651 Navajo Street, continues to make history -- and great homemade pasta. Patsy's doesn't ...

    Drink of the Week - Redfish Rita

    Welcome to the newest dive in town. When we entered the bar at the new Downtown Aquarium (formerly the barless Colorado's Ocean Journey), my friend oohed and aahed. "Gosh, it looks just like a grotto," she said. Yes, but more like the Disneyland grot...

    Drunk of the Week - Hard Rock Cafe

    There are signs I may be getting old -- although I like to attribute them to things like global warming and international terrorism. Gray hairs pop up in odd places; I spend as much time peeing as I do drinking beer; hangovers last at least 48 hours;...

    Second Helping - Cherry Cricket

    While I'm not crazy about what the folks from the "Wynkoop Family of Restaurants" have done with Gaetano's (see page 52), they've done just fine by the Cherry Cricket. Maybe that's because rather than having a downright cinematic past like Gaetano's ...

    Green Light - Head for the hills -- the hill country of Sapa.

    Walking into Sapa, the first thing you see are the green, green hills of home. Before that, it's just a box -- a nice box, fronted with a curving path leading to the door, lots of French windows and a nice patio wrapping around one corner, but a box,...
