    Early Bird Restaurant

  • Rocky Top Tavern

    Rocky Top Tavern

    The old Hill-Top Bar, just north of I-70 at 4907 Lowell Boulevard, was one of the tiniest dives in town -- but it had a big group of fans, and that small spot produced a lot of memories. In early 2014, the bar was resurrected as the Rocky Top... More on Rocky Top Tavern »

  • Taco Wagon

    Taco Wagon

    The Taco Wagon, crouching in the parking lot of El Mercado, a Mexican grocery in Lafayette, commands eye-rollingly long waits, but it's worth missing whatever commitment you've got lined up -- school, court, hell, even your nuptials -- to first... More on Taco Wagon »

  • Critic Reviews

    • What was your first cocktail? I recently found myself at Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace, the place where I had my first-ever drink. Er, first legal drink, that is. With a tasty mezcal cocktail in front of me, and a light crowd of happy-hour Banana Republic professionals around me, I thought about what had happened over my 21 rounds of booze. When I started writing "Coming of Age With 21 Drinks," I not only hoped to chronicle a time in Denver when the cocktail and bartending movements were in full swing -- I hoped to learn more...

    • Kyle Harris writes for Westword

      David Rutherford, director of the Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra, begrudges classical music institutions for relying on snobbery to attract audiences. Elitism has fallen out of fashion, he says; the border erected between the public and performers needs to crumble and musical institutions need to create new ways to bring in crowds.

For his most recent "out of the box" performance, his chamber orchestra is working with Augustana Arts,... More on Holiday Event Center »
