Always good food at a good price every time we go there. It's small, get there right at 5PM when they open to get a seat. Their house wine is sold by the full Liter, in a carafe, not the overpriced 750ML bottles found in other eateries.

So, what did Mayor Botch smoke that caused him to lose his scruples?
HFCS is a type of sugar called Fructose.
The problem with Fructose is that ONLY the liver can metabolize this form of sugar. The end result is that the liver stores this substance and is what causes Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).
Table sugar is Sucrose (cane sugar, aka Domino, et al), which is metabolized by most organs in the body and thus does NOT contribute to NAFLD.
EITHER form of sugar (and starches like wheat) will spike the blood sugar, which triggers the pancreas to pump out Insulin to deal with all that sugar, and the excess insulin is then laid down in belly fat. All of this is explained in the book Wheat Belly.
Pick you poison....sugars....wheats...alcohols....bananas....orange juice... and get your diabetes pills cheaply at wal-mart, probably sooner than later.
Stephen, exactly so.
De-regulation is a dangerous concept for any industry, especially transportation, in which case deregulation was a form of ignorance that failed to grasp sophisticated concepts that such services ARE a form of public utility requiring regulatory oversight to assure all of the public are well served at fair prices and without abuses. We were so much smarter in years past; the modern era of American history is turning out to be a disaster, save for a few of the hustlers on Wall Street who fleece the entire nation.
Though the CAB (and the ICC) were hidebound bureaucracies, that could've been easily fixed with new leadership and a revamp of the rules. Instead, the idiot from Harvard (Alfred Kahn) through out the baby with the bath water. The best aviation industry the world has ever seen was sacrificed on the alter of fare wars.
Low fares pleased the masses but the masses are truly ignorant of what's good for their own best personal and national interests, especially in the longer term. We've destroyed most airlines and eventually will get down to a de facto duopoly where two huge airlines achieve sufficient market dominance to allow monopolistic fare prices, at which time profitability will return to the industry so the survivors can avoid bankruptcy. We're almost there and are now seeing fares a good deal higher. I laugh at whiners, the ones who preach that everything should pay its own full cost, but scream like stuck pigs pay about today's airfares which are finally starting to cover the full cost of the service, plus that sacred free market profit factor.
Vaporous dreams of free market theorists that deregulation would give us an industry full of snazzy new start up airlines that serve even tiny towns with sparkling new planes and voluptuous cabin attendants at convenient times of the day has become an apocalyptic nightmare of what a true free market is really like.
The true bare knuckle, fight for your life, no holds barred, free market reality has arrived: bankruptcies, crashes, wage cuts, service cuts, disappearing pension funds (with taxpayers picking up the tab via the PBGC) and the humiliation of hub/spoke flying patterns that treat people like a package on FEDEX, i.e., y'all get to fly via a hub airport before we'll take you where it is you wanna go....so here's a stale bagel, now shut up, sit down, and buckle up.
The same mental midgets that love doug bruce love deregulation. Idiots.
A rail line will soon be open between Denver and DIA, which will launch a building boom along it's path. When the DC area built its Metro Subway, the transit lines helped greatly to transform the region into an economic powerhouse. Expect jobs to go to Denver metro area, not here.
It'll be the final nail in the coffin for COS Airport AND our city's economic future.
Between clownish evangelicals, the idiotic TABOR, and our moron in Congress, our city is a joke to most of the country; a laughing stock of a city in a job-poor nation. Except for economic bottom fishers with low-wage jobs for a dumbed-down tea-party population, no reputable firm will consider moving here.
A bill of $1700 sounds like a lot but really is not exorbitant at all.
When the 2006 monsoon exposed the poor drainage aspects in our area of new homes, I paid twice that to remediate drainage issues to my property left behind by a cheap-ass developer.
I also made sure that the developer fixed the community wide (Common Area) drain issues at no cost to me or our HOA and residents.
It's money well spent and I urge the residents to accept the reality of their circumstances and fix it. Our developer left us with lousy common area landscaping and sprinklers; we ended up with a special assessment of $200 per home, which the residents approved and paid. We've been doing fine since and have a growing reserve fund to cover the unexpected unknowns.
Our HOA gets by on dues of $435/year, and it's a struggle to keep our common areas looking great on such low dues.
A ten minute drive from downtown puts you over in the S.E. area of town, like that choice area near S. Academy and Platte.
Maybe Botch can re-use the vacated Wasson High School, yeah, that's the ticket, use the now empty classrooms for re-training the homeless. Get Melcher on that pronto...
Something isn't adding up.
Keith King seems to have been painted as a crony of Mayor Botch but suddenly he and the whole council feel a need to have their own legal counsel. Keep digging, there's something smelly going on down there...probably Botch and Melcher.
I warned people not to elect Botch and not to adopt a "strong dictator" charter. By the time we get rid of this clown it's going to cost us more than Rivera's follies.
