Guy Fieri is back in town, Lori Midson reports, visiting establishments ranging from the Denver Biscuit Company to Prohibition to the Highland Tavern for his show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives .

Some readers are fed up with Fieri, but still see benefits in his visits here: See also: - Love him or hate him, Guy Fieri is prancing around Denver -Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, hits up Steuben's -- and brings home the mayo Five reasons why Guy Fieri should drive to Douchebagistan and never come back

Says Manfrenjensen:

I can't stand the triple-D-bag, but there is no arguing that his visits provide a huge boost for the economic situation of the small restaurants that end up on his show. For that reason, and that reason alone, I'll welcome him back to Denver and even into my neighborhood... just don't come back for at least another 2-3 years.

As long as he's in town, where do you think Guy Fieri should go? Post your suggestions below, or join the Guy Fieri love/hate conversation already under way here.
