Robin Williams

Robin Williams: A Commentary

By In Good Taste Denver Editor, Courtney Drake-McDonough:   I was with my children when the news came in about Robin Williams’ passing. We were all in shock and total disbelief – literal disbelief. My oldest son got an alert on his phone which is set up to do so when there is a big…

Dorchester Social Eatery

Get a Clue at Dorchester Social Eatery

By Edan Goode: Longtime Denverites of a certain age may remember the nightclub, “23 Parish.” Located in a giant warehouse, its claim to fame was “rooms” created by hanging, painted tarps to suggest a library, parlor, dining room, etc. To make more space, the walls could be pulled back, curtain style.
