Sighting: Turophilia

Sighting: Turophilia

As I walked to the Yelp party at Soho Sushi, I spotted a gleaming Airstream trailer in the parking lot across from Jean-Robert’s table. I should have taken a picture in bright sunlight, but instead I walked by after dark and grabbed this shot.  Even […]

Review: Sophia’s Place, Albuquerque

Review: Sophia’s Place, Albuquerque

I was in Albuquerque during one of my epic trips this spring– you see, Spring is when we publishing folks rack up the mileage (airline and car) and call on accounts if necessary. I was originally scheduled to visit a school in ABQ, but that […]

Bits and Bites: Local and Travel Edition

Bits and Bites: Local and Travel Edition

I was in Denver this past week, and had a fabulous meal at Jing, near Denver Tech Center in Littleton.  Can a restaurant be sexy? If so, Jing, a pan-Asian restaurant, is– sort of.   It’s also a bit weird– in a good way.  It’s […]

Bits and Bites: The Palace, Taqueria Mercado, etc.

Bits and Bites: The Palace, Taqueria Mercado, etc.

I’m going to start writing what I call “Bits and Bites” — little observations about food that aren’t worthy of a full blog post. * The Spring menu at The Palace is fabulous. Terry and I had a groupon to burn, and treated ourselves to […]

Cocktail Hour: The Seelbach Cocktail

Cocktail Hour: The Seelbach Cocktail

Okay, just a disclaimer.  I picked this particular cocktail and the profile of the City Council candidate who shares its name because a) I like the cocktail, b) it’s Derby and appropriate and c) he’s a neighbor.  So as not to be partisan, if any […]
