    Re: “KCMJ cuts, hunting and fishing license fees, handicap parking, and more

    Gary, you're forgetting to point the finger at one person. I'll let you figure out who. It seems like many of the local live shows have been "stolen" by some other entity.

    Too many words, not enough picters. I liked the capital letters though. Go Soccere!

    Re: “Slipping away

    TruB, it is true that there have been a rash of "for-profit" beer festivals lately, you are correct. If you went to Haunted Brew Fest or America On Tap, those just promise to give a "portion of the proceeds" to charity. There really isn't a requirement as to what percentage, only that you need to have a non-profit attached to your event.

    Contrastingly, one local fest that you should totally support on the other hand is All Colorado Beer Fest, where the entire staff is volunteers and the organization itself is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

    Re: “Explore a deep Cowboy Star, if you can afford to

    You should have gone for their Happy Hour. From 2pm-6pm and 9pm-Close, they have a large majority of their bar menu available for 50% off, and drinks are also discounted by half as well. I can have two beers (Ballast Point Sculpin) and a Steak & Frites for under $20 with tip. Heck of a deal.

    Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

    These comments make me LOL.

    According to the most factual source of information available, *cough* Wikipedia *cough*, The Independent was created to provide "...informative, entertaining and thought provoking..." articles.

    I consider Bryce's words quite thought provoking. No matter how you slice it, he's made you think about his words, albeit somewhat negatively, but think nonetheless.

    Re: “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty ...

    Finally! I've heard rumors about what was happening at America the Beautiful, and I am so glad that our city has decided to support its feline-loving citizens. This is almost better than City for Champions!
