This week Gretchen Kurtz visited bubu Lowry, where she particularly liked the veggie ramen. But the real star was the happy hour she found there, with prices "low enough to also lower expectations for the nibbles we paired with our drinks," she writes in her bubu Lowry review. But then, she didn't encounter — or is that create? — the situation one reader did. Says Al:

Really good ramen, very nice, but they cut me off after a few Asahis. It got awkward very quickly and I'm not sure I'm comfortable going back. I think I'll stick to Osaka and Cho77; they have always been super-nice and their food is better, anyhow.

Have you ever been cut off at a restaurant? If so, how did the staff handle it?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
