Beer — Film — Music — Food — A&E

Cheap Cabernet: A Friendship out on Oct.6
Cheap Cabernet: A Friendship is a memoir that I will publish, with great fanfare and flourish, on Oct. 6. And Balistreri Vineyard is launching it with 50 free bottles of its "Signature Cheap Cabernet." By Cathie Beck

Dave on film: “Love Happens” piles on the clichés
While I'd like to say that this was a warm, romantic film, it was more an exercise in how many trite romantic film clichés can be stuffed into a single movie and proof that typecasting doesn't always work. By Dave Taylor

A&E Best bets: zombies, Guerilla Thrilla, guitars and grape-stomping
Zombies have stormed the Bug Theatre! Can the folks trapped in the farmhouse make it through the night? Adapted from George Romero's 1968 film classic, Night of the Living Dead, it's mixed media at its scariest. By Lisa Ryckman

Colorado tastes great at the Great American Beer fest
Quantity's fine, but how about quality? The results of the just-wrapped Great American Beer Festival confirm what beer lovers here already know: Colorado’s got the most AND the best. By Jay Dedrick
