Who doesn’t like to laugh?

My wife and I, and another couple headed north to Denver on Friday, the occasion (not that we need, other than getting out of suburbia), was Brett Butler at Comedy Works. We love Comedy Works, and when the Greenwood Village one opens, the Denver one will be that much nicer we think ;)

The emcee and opener were both great, we’ve seen them both before the last time we hit a show, Brett was as funny as we thought she’d be, it was a great show. She did run over, really really over, but hey, when you’re laughing, who’s looking at watches? I suppose people with dinner reservations are, but no one else.

My wife had the foresight to make our dinner reservations well after the show was supposed to be over, ‘just in case’ which was good since the show got out, five minutes before our reservation at La Fondue.

Who doesn’t like Fondue? I’d never own a set for the house, but it’s just that much neater when waiters are doing the work of mixing the yummy dipping goodness. Fondue is one of those indulgences we visit upon our selves once every few months, since it takes that long to stop feeling like we just ate an entire cow a piece.

If you’ve never been to La Fondue, I highly recommend it, it’s really a good time and the food is incredible. The choices are a bit daunting when looking at the whole deal, appertizers, salad, main course, and dessert, yikes, I think I felt my belt get tighter just thinking about it.

Same with Comedy Works, the owner runs a nice tight ship, and they get some seriously top notch talent. If only the drunken dill-holes didn’t come, I’d spend every Friday night there, but some how, despite the size of the place, we ALWAYS get stuck in front of or next to the drunk dumbass that wants to be loud the entire time. Nothing like being in the Heckler kill zone. Drunkards aside, Comedy Works is a very fun night.

    Melting Pot is good, i’ve been there a few times. Here (Littleton) and Southern CA. Portions seem bigger that La Fondue.
