Re: “Thirsty Parrot

First off I'd have to disagree with "livemusiclover" us Dj's at the Parrot are far from cheap and the worthless tripe that you refer to is not only years of experience, talent, and knowledge that the Dj's put into their sets, but also is what that downtown crowd on Fri & Sat nights come out to dance to. I've been the Resident Dj there for 3 years and check this out.... I also love live music - I've Dj'ed with several local bands such as Sanquine Addiction, ITUS, and others I love live music - the problem is a combo of different things - And we have tryed several things but it really comes down to the bands are not pulling the crowds like they use to. As sucky as that is to say but thats just what is going on. As far as the comment on our kitchen that has long since been any issues - We have a pimpin full Lunch and Dinner menu. I saw that last post and just had to say something to respond back to "livemusiclover" and to his comments on Thirsty Parrots Dj's - I am Dj Chris Diablo and I for one just the same as my counter part Dj Brandon Lee are Thirsty Parrot's Resident Dj's and we both spend alot of time and energy on our sets and our ability to remix cross genres (MASH-UP). Dj's such as ourself are just as much Live Music as a band is. I've been the Main Stage Resident Dj for the last 4 yrs. for "The South Park Music Tour" held in South Park/Fairplay, CO which is 3days-8stages-80bands and in Aug. for the upcoming "THC Music Festival" held in Alma, CO which is 3days-5stages-40bands - My point is I play with alot of different bands and what all of us are in it for the creation of music and the love for music - It just shows some peoples short-kut to thinking instead of opening their eyes and ears and seeing and hearing the artform that is djing. And as far as going downhill fast and we won't survive the summer of 2010 - Come check us out Every Fri- We got Dj Brandon Lee Downstairs mixing his Original Mash-ups along with every thing else....And Upstairs it's "The Dj Chris Diablo Show" W/ Me mixing years of my Original Mash-ups remixing all genres from all era's.......Then Every Sat - We Have Me Downstairs - mixing all genres and ALWAYS a BAND Upstairs......But come early if you want a table or a booth because it always ends up standing room only!!!!! Dj Chris Diablo

P.S. This was the first time I saw the second comment "ddiggler" thank you I love the positive feedback and support!!!

Re: “Shovelhead Saloon

Dropped in there April 10th to support the Bikers Against Child Abuse party. The band rocked from 1 to 7, all of the people were friendly, and the place was a blast.

Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.

Re: “Gasoline Alley

Like the bar. The waitresses are fun! Saw the last band on earth in there a while back. They kicked ass! Some of the other bands I've seen in there since are lame though.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good BBQ and I'm not even "into" BBQ. Good portions, interesting recipes for sides, fantastic pies. Four stars only because its location is an old house, which provides ambiance I guess, but also makes it a tad crowded and cramped. But really, the food is very good and service is good also.

Re: “Nosh

They just added a wonderful appetizer of purple rice and bean looked like a sushi roll but was instead a stack..... loved it. . . service was top notch. Asked for a wine selection and it was perfect. Really enjoyed the meal. Recommend it highly.

Re: “McCabe's Tavern

Great open space, attentive staff, GREEN biz and yummy, yummy menu. Try the hot chicken salad (hot wings style fried chicken breast on greens LOADED with bleu cheese) or the Ploughman's Lunch (a traditional Irish plate of cold meats, cheeses, olives, garlic, veggies, etc served with breads). Oh yeah, there are the fries with curry dip. Trust me, come hungry.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

Fun bar for Sunday football games and other weekend sports. Truly great brunch and lunch menu. A mix of traditional bar options plus hearty homestyle pot roast, bison and elk options -- plus yummy, unique salads. Really good bartender (Lindsey) and servers. Attentive, friendly and fast.

Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet

I love dropping by Garden of the Gods Gourmet for the samples they always have out and about. Their sandwiches are delicious and I've enjoyed many of their take-and-bake items as well. The only thing I wish they'd do is add natural/organic/grass-fed beef/poultry/etc. to their dishes. Any added cost would definitely be worth it.

Re: “Trinity Brewing

Beer drinker? You'll be in heaven at Trinity. Don't drink beer? That's OK, try the Pear Cider. Their food has greatly improved since they first opened. Lots of veggie-friendly options, or for the meat eaters, a bacon basket! Make sure to check out their calendar online. They have lots of events, art shows, music and such going on each month.
