This past week I had the blessing to be at the Colorado Christian Writer’s Conference Write his Answer at Estes Park, Colorado. Twice some friends took me out to eat.
The first night we went to this cute Italian restaurant not far from the gates of the YMCA of the Rockies were we were meeting. It looks small but much like the Tardis – it is bigger on the inside. Also wallpapered in $1 bills! The Dunraven Inn was a delightful place and our waiter, Colin was sweet and funny. The manager wouldn’t admit to the job until we told him we liked our meal. My friends told him about my book and I explained that my main man was an Italian chef.
The manager escorted us into the kitchen to meet their Italian cook.
The poor guy posed for a photo at his managers insistance and we all had fun.
So here is a photo of Chef Marty. Oh, and his pesto was wonderful!
The next night we went out to eat at Ed’s Cantina in Estes Park. My friends asked if they had pesto on the menu. At a Mexican restaurant? Sure enough, they did! We asked if we could take a photo of the chef and the hostess graciously brought out Chef Jose to our table so we could take a picture. Isn’t this great? A little Fonzi pose for the writer from Wisconsin!
I didn’t eat pesto there, but did enjoy mymeal of bison enchiladas. Yummy!
