Jay Fox's Dining Guide

Party 'til the cows come home

“Scientists tell us we are what we eat. Nuts must be more common in diets than we thought.” — Unknown

GET READY, ONE AND ALL, FOR THE 2010 COLORADO STATE FAIR! All you Denverites, Lakewoodonians, Arvadites, Wheat Ridgers, Golden Oldies, Evergreenies, Pagosanians, Fremontonians and all the rest of you Coloradans — even those from the Peoples Republic of Boulder — drive down/up/across to Pueblo and visit the funnest fair of ‘em all. I really do luv the state fair. In its 138th year, the state fair runs eleven days, from Friday, August 27 thru Monday, September 6 (Labor Day). G and I haven’t decided which of our six perfect grandchildren we’re taking this year, but rest assured we’ll be there, exhausted after about two hours. And staying about eight hours.

COME ONE, COME ALL, TO THE VERY FIRST “Affair on the Square”… and as their PR department labels it, “Denver’s first premier al fresco dining experience.” When you look at what’s for dinner, you’ll probably agree with “premier.”

Dems blast Broomfield

BOSS JODY SEZ it’s time for the state assemblies of both the Democrats and the Republicans, and with so many burning issues, I thought I’d list some you might find suitable to your dining needs. While I have eaten at some of them, the rest of the list was furnished by a variety of trusted former friends. If the place ain’t there anymore, sorry. This northern burb has grown by leaps and bounds since the county incorporated itself and the metro area has run out of land room. If you find something that you really like, from my list or not, lemme know. TanQ

Republicans land in Loveland

BOSS JODY SEZ it’s time for the state assemblies of both the Democrats and the Republicans, and with so many burning issues, I thought I’d list some you might find suitable to your dining needs. While I have eaten at some of them, the rest of the list was furnished by former friends and enemies alike.
