Beerdrinker of the year must be more than a casual fan

On Saturday afternoon, one of three men will receive beer for life at the Wynkoop Brewing Co. Now, some of you may be asking, will I be the one? Or at least, am I among the three? By Jay Dedrick

Where's your home away from home?

My bet is that you have at least one place in this great big world that, for whatever reason, just fits you perfectly. I am lucky enough to have two places that really feel like home when I arrive. By Robert Polk

I've never met one of these I liked

Perhaps the key to enjoying an excellent dessert wine is in the selection of an excellent dessert. If that's the tact one takes, common sense dictates pairing light with light, rich with rich. The German chocolate cake you couldn't say no to? Try a fortified wine with heft. By Cathie Beck, The Wine Wench

Dave on film: shuddering on Shutter Island

This week you have two choices: a safe, relatively shallow biopic about a brilliant thinking from the 1800s, or a creepy film about cops and insane asylums from one of the masters of cinema, Martin Scoresese. Which is a better choice for your weekend dollars and popcorn purchases? By Dave Taylor

James McMurtry brings his tough-luck, tough-stance songs to Boulder

Hands down, the most difficult interview I ever conducted with a musician was with James McMurtry several years ago in advance of a show he was going to play in Boulder. McMurtry is among the most literate songwriters in rock (not surprising, since his dad is novelist Larry McMurtry). By Mike Cote

Best bets: Brahms, black history and Buffalo Bill's birthday

It's a birthday party for Buffalo Bill at the Buffalo Bill Memorial Museum from noon to 3 p.m. Come out for cake and buffalo chip tossing. By Lisa Ryckman
