New On DVD: Argo

“Based on true events” is generally the set up for a long, hard fall, as Hollywood plays roughshod with a story that would sell itself if left alone. Not in this case, however. Argo chronicles...

This is another busy week at the library with Library Board Meeting this evening at 5:00 and the Oral history Project meeting tomorrow afternoon and the photography contest entries coming in. The entries for the photography contest have been great an...

 

Restaurant Review: Wonderful House

Wonderful House occupies an enviable space. The destination restaurant in Scottsbluff is a multiple winner of the local paper’s annual “best of” survey. It attracts near full house crowds at...

 

Drinks: Sauza Hornitos Reposado Tequila

Sauza Hornitos reposado remains one of the best tequilas on the market, when price point is taken into consideration. While brands with bigger names and flashier livery demand $50 or more per bottle, it’s possible to find this aged, 100 percent...

 

New On DVD: Flight

Few films are as bracing, wrenching and morally trying as Flight. Yet it is hardly a thriller. Some may even reel from a viewing of this Denzel Washington tome. The veteran actor plays an airline...

Restaurant Review: Tacos Mexico

Tacos Mexico presents a dubious face. A plasticized banner strung outside advertises their breakfast burritos, calling to mind thoughtlessly prepared, Americanized things stuffed with sage sausage...

 

Coppola's 2010 Silver Label Pinot Noir

Fans of the movie “Sideways” know that Pinot Noir is a moody, unreasonable grape. It is thin skinned, despises all manner of weather and, finally, is quite willing to wither or rot if not treated with the greatest sensitivity by man and nature....

Restaurant Review: Company Bar & Grill

If you ask most people, they will tell you that dishes prepared from scratch beat out frozen quick service meals every time—particularly if the cook works with fresh ingredients. In the hippest...

 

Strathisla 12 Year Single Malt Scotch

The Chivas name is dated, recognized by some of us—me, to be precise—from the days of shag carpeting and polyester. Yet they have longevity on their side. And in 1950 they purchased the Strathisla distillery, using its product to blend into...

 

New On DVD: The Imposter

Mention the documentary genre and most eyes will glaze over. But “The Impostor” is hardly your average show and tell. Rather, the docudrama could fit into the same category as, say, “The...

Restaurant Review: Deacon's

It’s no stretch to label Deacon’s the most popular restaurant in Torrington. Granted, I have not canvassed the town on this matter—just passing along an observation. With every parking spot...

 

Odell's Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout

Cream or milk stouts draw both their strength and sweetness from the addition of lactose during the brewing process. Odell’s Lugene, released just a couple of weeks ago, goes a step further,...

 

New On DVD: Taken 2

The unfortunate impulse to capitalize on a popular film by turning out a sequel is responsible for many of the industry’s worst non-Adam Sandler movies. Taken 2 feels forced, as if director Olivier...

Restaurant Review: Backaracks

One afternoon I stopped by Racks, a liquor store on the eastern fringe of Scottsbluff. More than a dozen cars and trucks were scattered around the lot, yet inside the clerk slouched behind the...

 

Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Scotch

Single malts from the reaches of Scotland achieved snob appeal during the 80s and 90s, thanks to their unique and often demanding character, as well as America’s newfound appreciation of more “authentic” items. Now, clearly, the market has...

 

New On DVD: Frankenweenie

Some critics are calling Frankenweenie director Tim Burton’s best, which is pretty tall praise considering his collection includes Ed Wood and Edward Scissorhands. Frankenweenie uses stop-motion...
