Re: “Forcible forcemeat at the Blue Star

As a neighbor, and frequent diner, of the Blue Star I have a comment here. First, I love the new creativity at B.S. recently. That said, here's what I think I'd change first on both the 'rooted' menu, and the 'in the moment' stuff.
Rooted: How about more basic, but rotating, bistro food (steak-frites, roasted chicken, mussels bowl)?
In the moment: Again, creative, but the B.S. is as known for its wine list and my experience recently (not always, mind you) has been that some of the strange, sweet fruit sauces on meats have clashed seriously with great wines. The sweet stuff works REALLY well with a cocktail, or a bubbly, but not with dry whites and reds. Just a few thoughts.

Re: “Lyons' roar

Really folks - if you haven't tried this new version of NOSH, it's fabulous. You don't have to drive to Denver or Boulder (anymore) for some creative cooking using local ingredients. Well done!

Re: “Bristol brewery and partners seek to turn vacant school into Ivywild hub

This is most welcome news; just back in town and we are thrilled with this possibility.
Joe, Mike, Jim - THANK you for thinking of our neighborhood first, and if this comes through, I plan to make the complex a daily stop. Onwards, Ivywild!

Re: “2C in trouble, 300 on the edge

"Must...do...what...Glenn...Beck...tells...me...to...do." Seriously people? You think this was about "more government and less freedom?" Are you kidding? It's about infrastructure - roads, schools, parks. I care about my community, and will support; tax me. No, really, raise my property tax; if that means one less plasma tv in my home, so what? I need parks; we need a well-educated population. Do you really think companies will come to the Springs if the paved roads are in Mad Max condition, our schools put out ignorant ideologues, and the parks look like devastated sand traps?
