Hooch in the house and Swine flying soon

Bryce Crawford and I are leaving shortly for the Great American Beer Festival , but I wanted to post a couple of quick food/drink-related notes before I go.

First, I discovered an awesome new policy at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Theatre Company last night, during the preview of Assassins: incoming performing arts director Scott RC Levy has now allowed drinks to be carried into the theater.

Whats a theater show (especially one with guns) without some booze to accompany it?

It's a brilliant move (one that makes you wonder why it wasn't allowed up until now) that should boost drink sales for the FAC. I greatly enjoyed sipping on a scotch throughout the show last night, rather than having to quickly down something during intermission.

A second quick update related in part to the FAC: chef Bill Sherman of Amuzé at the FAC says that his other culinary initiative planned for Palmer Lake, The Flying Pig, has been delayed again.

Sherman says he's now awaiting a pre-opening inspection, but "we are finally close."
