    Local Relic was the only brewer I kept returning to at this year's Feast of Saint Arnold. Really creative and tasty beers. Their Cabernet Sauvignon Brown Ale was outstanding.

    Re: “Review: Star Bar does A Streetcar Named Desire right, but leaves some elements to be desired

    I did not want to get into the legality of the cigarettes because I am not an attorney, but in their ban on the public indoor smoking of tobacco products, the Colorado Revised Statutes state: "'Tobacco' also includes cloves and any other plant matter or product that is packaged for smoking." (CRS 25-14-203)

    Regardless of the legality, I wanted to focus on a simpler issue. The smoke from the mullein cigarettes is likely to bother some theatergoers and they need to be aware of that ahead of time.

    Thanks for your comment. The cigarettes may not be tobacco-based, but they're real in that they're lit, unlike e-cigarettes or baby powder-based stage cigarettes. To me, the smell and irritation were indistinguishable from that of tobacco cigarettes.

    Re: “The caffeine diary: Notes from the 24SEVEN theater project

    Craig, you and the rest of the cast did great. I only mentioned the flubs because I wanted to capture the flavor of the event. It wasn't about being polished. It was about working together and having fun.
