An Occasional Vegetarian in the Brewery Bar II

The Brewery Bar is famous for having "Denver's best green chile" so I was a little disappointed by the menu's lack of vegetarian options: none of the chiles are vegetarian and few of the dishes are.

Now that said, the food was still delicious. I had a chicken enchilada with enchilada sauce (which is vegetarian) and my lunch-mate had a chile relleno (served as a strip of peper and cheese deep fried rather than the more traditional "stuffed" pepper style).

Baker highlighted in Post article on zoning code revamp

a Post article today, Denver zoning code revamp afoot, makes a point using Baker as an example:

For instance, the existing code specifies that a new single-family home should be built on a lot of at least 6,000 square feet.
While that might work in "suburban-type" neighborhoods, it doesn't conform to historic areas such as the Baker neighborhood, with smaller lots built on streets laid out in a grid pattern.
