From the longest main street to the biggest burrito
Celebrate the world's longest main street at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11, when Satellite Bar, 308 East Colfax Avenue, hosts the monthly Happy on the Hill social. Satellite will offer drink specials, and CityGrille, located right across the street at 321 East Colfax, will supply the snacks.(Is it too much to hope for chile cheese fries?) For more info, go to www.mycolfax.org.
But don't enjoy yourself so much that you forget to turn on the TV at 8 p.m., because that's when the Travel Channel will show the episode of Man v. Food in which Adam Rich takes on the seven-pound burrito at Jack-n-Grill, the New Mexican restaurant at 2524 Federal Boulevard, after visiting the Buckhorn and Cherry Cricket.
