Reader: White-Bread Americans Hate Spitting Out Chicken Bones

Row 14 was ambitious -- perhaps too ambitious for its location right across from the Colorado Convention Center, where business was either feast or famine, depending on which group had been booked into the facility.

Uncle Joe's Hong Kong Bistro, the first U.S. location of a Chinese concept.
