Oceanaire's Lobster Roll Special

Oceanaire’s Lobster Roll Special

New England favorite works as a pre-theater treat. When I got wind of The Oceanaire’s current (till the end of the month) special on lobster and crab rolls, my mouth started watering. We had theater tickets the other night, and The Oceanaire is across the street from the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. As […]

New Aurora Ethnic Dining Guide

New Aurora Ethnic Dining Guide

Great freebie for adventurous foodies. Early in September, we went to Aurora to have our passports renewed.

If you want fantastic breads and pastries, there’s Breadworks. If you want designer coffee-and, there’s Vic’s. But if you want a full hot breakfast delivered to your table, there has been a void […]

Wazee Supper Club's 40th

Wazee Supper Club’s 40th

Retro LoDo eatery opened before LoDo had that name. I don’t know why, but I’ve actually never been to the Wazee Supper Club even though it opened 40 years ago. It is located in a Denver historic neighborhood that former Denver Post writer Dick Kreck dubbed LoDo, and it was already an institution when I showed up in Colorado in 1988. This […]

Small Plates & Big Tastes in Lyons

Small Plates & Big Tastes in Lyons

LOCAL sources nearby, just as its name suggests. Every time we drive through Lyons en route to or from Rocky Mountain National Park, we wish Fork, which is located in a historic stone building on the west end of the small main drag, were open. It never has been, because we tend to be there before […]
