The blog shortcut, September 26 edition

Belly up to the Cinebarre.

Blogging along...

Cafe Society has items aplenty today. Get the skinny about the new Cinebarre in Thornton, the reopening of Gelman's in Highland, a review of Brach's Candy Poppers by the Candy Girls, the continuing expansion of Jack and the Box franchises in Colorado, the culinary experiences of Ask a Mexican author Gustavo Arellano during his Colorado visit this week, and Westword's crowning of the Mile High Chef contest winner at the Menu Affair.

If your appetite for blogs still isn't sated, stop by Backbeat Online to learn about a Mercury Café benefit for Ralph DaFermo as shared by the Merc's owner, Marilyn Megenity. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated. -- Michael Roberts
