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 .

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.
