DJ’s Cafe & Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen

If you go to DJ’s Colfax Cafe (or Berkely or 9th Ave) in Denver, expect to have probably the best breakfast you’ve ever eaten. I don’t mean to exclude their lunch selection, it’s just that I’ve never eaten anything other than breakfast (namely the California Benedict) because it’s perfect. DJ’s may be one of my favorite places in North America, and I’ve been known to frequent the Berkely location, often alone. So, much to my excitement, the kind people at the various DJ’s locations have been nice enough to allow me to display my art in their places of business over the past two years. Today, I went to the (recently opened and extremely spacious) Colfax location to install some of my latest prints.

When I say I destroyed almost every inch of the freshly painted walls, of course I’m exaggerating. But I did manage to drill at least double the number of holes needed… I spent far longer than I care to admit hanging up only about a dozen pieces, while also reeking havoc on the restaurant and its patrons. However, the staff was kind enough to pretend that wasn’t the case, and very graciously allowed me to go about my business (I can’t stress how nice EVERYONE is).  And in the end, I think everything turned out looking quite lovely. So, I’m super excited to finally be displaying some new prints, and I hope those of you in the Denver area are able to check them out! And if you don’t care at all about my art, I still think it would be well worth your while to check out the food.

Unrelated, I was watching the Today Show this morning, and I believe Al Roker mentioned something about fast food not being the worst thing in the world you could put into your body (Notice how most of my thoughts center around food). Sooooooooooooo, with that idea planted in my brain, I hightailed it over to Popeyes (aka a small slice of heaven in this otherwise hellish existance. Jk. Kind of).

Isn’t that one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen? I’m hungry just looking at it, and I already ate it only moments ago. (Note: if you’ve never had Popeye’s, your body will need some time to get used to this fine delicacy. I recommend starting off slow and eating only a small amount for your first few meals – until your stomach has time to adequately adjust). Three piece chicken strips with fries and a biscuit is always the way to go. Unless it’s Mardi Gras, in which case legs and breasts are a must, but we’ll get to that in a few weeks.
