Reader: Why Do You Only Write About Hipster Foodie Places by Your Office


While Gretchen Kurtz took the week off, Juliet Wittman interviewed Bob Stocker, who raises goats on El Regalo Ranch. Stocker sells his meat at both local farmers' markets and to some area restaurants, which inspired us to serve up a list of four places where you can get your goat in Denver, including the very popular Work & Class. But re42scott wasn't impressed:
Why do you only write about hipster, foodie places within a 15-minute drive of the Westword offices?
And never mind how long it takes to park after you leave the Westword office! The day before our piece ran on El Regalo Ranch — which is nowhere near the office — Mark Antonation visited Funny Plus in Aurora, for Korean fried chicken that's definitely off the beaten path. Still, we'd like to know:  What restaurants should we be writing about? What parts of town need more coverage?
