Re: “Best of 2007 In Vogue

Whether you yearn for frames made of thick plastic or skinny metal, or new-school "hybrids" made of both, readers say LensCrafters is the best place to buy your spectacles.

Vous venez de me donner très envie de visiter cette Closerie Falbala, je ne savais même pas qu'elle existait, ça a l'air magique et magnifique.

Re: “Winners Index

@kras - I agree Trinity has some good beers, but the service there blows. On at least 3 separate occasions, I've gone in there and have been refused service because "the bartender didn't want to make the drink". I found out later that the bartender was the manager himself. To me, thats just ridiculous and lazy. Can't say I'll be going back in there, no matter HOW good the beer selection is.

Re: “Winners Index

Nick-N-Willy's is our favorite. They can bake the pizza for you too in a brick oven if you like. We have had their pizza from both Monument, CO and Evergreen, CO.

Re: “Winners Index

I would have to say, as a disinterested third party, that Trinity has a WAY better tap than Old Chicago's. OC may have everyone beat on overall number of beers including bottled, but you really can't get any better than what Trinity has done when it comes to the variety and quality of what they have on tap. And they mix it up, which someone with OC's corporate stance simply can't keep up with.

Re: “Best of 2010

I've got to say the dining/food winners this year are the worst I've ever seen. Although me and everyone else I know voted, apparently there are people that vote that go to the same three places to eat. Amuze hands down has the best patio with a view, Lanna Thai has the freshest ingredients that is the closest I've tasted to authentic since coming back from Thailand, and The Blue Star I've constantly received THE WORST SERVICE in town. Can we scratch this issue and try harder???

That's weird, an employee of The Independent is in "The Best Original Band"?

Oh boy thanks for pointing out the gay bars. I would have been really upset if I wandered in there with my wife.

Re: “Winners index

Funny how CO Stoneworks got best of.... a company that fortifies the indulgance of illegal drug use, alcoholics and domestic violence... what an outstanding company who has ex-cons and employees with dui convictions and condone violence against women... i wouldn't want them onmy property... thank god for background checks and random drug testing... pretty sure more than half would fail a 'whiz quiz'...

Re: “Best of 2009: Sparkle and shine

In my opinion, Bluestar offers dishes that cater to a delicate palate in a casual dining atmosphere. A bit pricy but enjoyable meals that wont break you like more expensive options that will leave feeling hungry. I enjoy the chef specials from main dishes to desserts.

Re: “Blind faith

Most important to me is Jon's ethics. He suits up and shows up through thick and thin. Jon's a real family guy working not only to make a living, but also to make the community better. He is a great guy trying to make a go of it, has a baby on the way, so get out there and support his shop. God Bless you and Megan!

Re: “Fool's gold

Thank you Rich for delivering our 2 minutes hate for today. Doug Bruce certainly fills in for the part of Emmanuel Goldstein rather well for your demented little circus. What would you do if not for Mr. Bruce? Surely you would have to create a Doug Bruce of your own to pillory and despise at every turn. Someone to blame every flaw and fault upon. Someone to point fingers at and bellow so the fanatical faithful need not look too close at the failures of your own side.

Re: “Fool's gold

No comments in THIS? Maybe it's not sporting in some way. Shooting at drugged, tied down targets whose heads are superglued to the muzzle of the gun.

But think about it... If Bruce DOES wing the mayor's race... he'll be easy to find at least. Just look for the crowd of villagers with pitchforks and torches. Then look beyond that to any closet or restroom nearby. Open the door slightly, say "It's OK, Doug, they've left".

That would be cruel, but necessary.
