Don't let Maryland get all the Triple M lamb! Here's how to buy it

Want to try the lamb chops that Governor John Hickenlooper sent to Maryland Governor John O'Malley after losing a bet on the Broncos/Ravens game? Mary and David Miller, owners of Triple M Bar Ranch, will be in Boulder on Saturday, January 26, delivering meat to chefs -- and while they're parked at the Boulder Cork lot that afternoon, you can buy some of their specials.

The Millers were at the Capitol yesterday, delivering some Triple M lamb chops to Hickenlooper. "We started and ended our day in the lambing barn in our grungy coveralls," Mary writes in an e-mail to regular customers. "David and I agreed that we cleaned up pretty well to attend the lamb grilling event at the State Capitol. It was a long day, but we sure had fun."
