Digging for gold

The Old Mine is filled with treasure

By Josh Gross
Erie may not be the correct spelling, but it’s the perfect word for the experience. On a chilly, October evening, the dark storefronts and empty sidewalks of this old town strip of the small East Boulder/Weld County town didn’t need much in the way of Halloween decorations to evoke the feel of a western ghost town.

Why do they even give you chopsticks?

Motomaki makes sushi for the burrito crowd

By Josh Gross
The rapid-service sushi joint offers 12 different rolls, or the choice to design your own. All are available as bowls, but are intended to be served as burrito-sized hand rolls, wrapped in foil and halved. It’s the perfect example of what Steve Jobs meant when he said the job of entrepreneurs was to provide what consumers didn’t yet know they wanted.
