We've had Rich do plumbing work for us several times at our home. Each time he arrived when promised and was able to fix the problem or do the install very efficiently and neatly. His prices are quite reasonable and he's quite competent. He has my enthusiastic recommendation.
There are still skilled, talented, and meticulous artisans crafting beautiful pieces of custom furniture. Dave Boykin and Tom Pearce are two of the best. If I win the lottery, I'm going to buy all my furniture from them.
With Mongolian barbecue you fill up your bowl with meat, veggies, sauce, etc. then watch as they cook it for you on a huge round griddle. The ingredients are fresh and tasty and the meal comes with rice and soup (try the hot and sour). A nice change from the usual chinese.
My dog just stayed at the new Littleton Camp Bow Wow and seemed to enjoy it a lot. Esy to tell since I was able to watch him playing with the other dogs on webcam. The facility is clean and well maintained; the staff is friendly to people and dogs; and the prices are reasonable. He'll be going back again.
If you love good chocolate, the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has your number. I haven't found anything there that wasn't delicious, and many of their chocolates are superb.
PROS: lots of convenient locations
CONS: hard to resist
Racines at their old spot was one of our favorite restaurants. We've been back a few times since they reopened at their new location and neither the atmosphere nor the food is the same. Still not bad but no longer special.
This company sells big bags of shelled nuts: pecans, walnuts, almonds, filberts, you name it. They also have trail mixes and dried fruit mixes. All of it is good. Perfect for baking, for parties, or just for snacking. First quality at reasonable prices. I've been buying their stuff for 20 years and recommend them highly.
PROS: really good
CONS: can be addictive...
The original Tosh's has been a Denver favorite (and mine) for years. This second location at the Tech Center is a bit disappointing. It lacks ambience and the food is only average. It feels more like a chain restaurant - not bad but uninspired. I'd go back for lunch, but there are many better places for a good Mexican dinner.
The Fort is one of a kind. It is a recreatrion of an old frontier fort and the decor takes you back to the days of the trappers and traders. A wonderful place to bring out of state visitors. The menu features game dishes and buffalo with frontier style side dishes and the food is very good. While it is quite expensive, it is a dining experience to be savored.
