Vin-dicated: 7-Up Sangria not so trashy after all!
Two years ago, our “Sassy Sangria” column extolled all of the virtues of Sangria in the heat of the good ol’ summertime. And at a recent Colorado winery party, when a vintner unwittingly exposed the secret in their Sangria, I knew my version had been vindicated. By Cathie Beck

Butler’s choice: All the fest – peach, jazz, art and Woodstock

Dave on film: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Let me say right up front: I liked “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” I didn't expect it to be a deep, thoughtful war film. I did expect a loud, action-filled movie that had attractive actors, shiny toys, banal dialog and a barely comprehensible story line. And that's what I got. By Dave Taylor

Dio’s Sabbath returns as Heaven and Hell
Ozzy-less band plays Red Rocks on Saturday. By Mike Cote

I’m having an ongoing debate with some of my golfing friends about Tiger Woods and his on-course antics - the tantrums, pouting, club-throwing and general wretchedness he displays when he’s not a hundred under par. By Bart Taylor
