Iain Chisholm woos wows at Amerigo Delicatus

Celebrity chef Mario Batali has done some controversial things over the years, some of them humorous (wearing shorts in all seasons), others not so much (comparing bankers to Stalin and Hitler). But his thoughts on how much easier it was to get into the business twenty years ago aren't likely to count as a faux pas -- fashion or otherwise.

Back then, you didn't have to have "a rich daddy or an investor," he said, adding that "it's sad to watch the cost of business push the real individualist entrepreneurs out of the game." Thankfully, his remarks -- played along with those from actors, athletes and other personalities on 5,000 Manhattan pay phones as part of an ad campaign for an exhibit on life in New York in 1993 -- are less true in Denver today than they are on the other side of the Hudson River. And Iain Chisholm, chef-owner of Amerigo Delicatus Restaurant & Market, which opened last summer in the Ballpark neighborhood, is proof of that.

 DADA Art Bar is JOKE.   They have scheduled Performance Artists to perform at their space TWICE for their (Failed) first Grand Opening, and now a SECOND Failed Grand Opening.  Not only that, but After these performers were scheduled to perform, they were not notified about the cancellation, and showed up ready to perform in costume with a truckload of equipment in tow.  The VERY RUDE staff turned them away at the door.   

DADA Art Bar has been interviewed, and fed loads of bullshit lines to westward about how friendly and open they are to the Denver Art Community.  They are nothing of the sort. They are unorganized, unprofessional jerks.   I have decided to not show work there, and I would suggest to others to do the same.
