Continuing our talk on the Manhattan board, first of all realize that I was in Denver to cover the GABF as a journalist, hence I needed to give that preference over the Ethiopian festival. I did walk over to the church for the Ethiopian festival, but was confused as to time/date and the event wasn't happening while I was there.

Do you have an address handy for Arada? Maybe it's on the Denver eating page I've seen on the Web.

I'm not going to GABF this year, and didn't make it last year, their first at the new venue, the Colorado Convention Center. I've grown bored with the festival the last few years. Sure, it's fun, but I do the same things every year.

I used to enjoy breakfast at Vic's Yankee Dollar. I think it was on Champa, but I hear it's gone. It was a good neighborhood breakfast/lunch place. Every year the same people were working there. On Sundays they were closed and we'd have to go instead to McDonald's, or Pierce's (I think that was the name). It was (is?) next to Executive Tower, I believe, and had all the usual institutional-style chow. Argghhh ...

So, any other good, unpretentious breakfast joints in downtown Denver?

Speaking of unpretentious, I always enjoy stopping in at Broadway Brewing in Denver.
