A trio of Trader Joe's stores: A second helping of Cafe Society, February 10-14

Categories: Cafe Society

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Session Kitchen, the restaurant that the Breckenridge-Wynkoop group opened last fall in the former home of Izakaya Den. Lori Midson talked to Caitlin Mandigo of City Bakery about what it takes to bake bread for a living -- and at altitude -- for Chef and Tell. And Mark Antonation's travels up Federal Boulevard took him to Nick's Diner, for a filling breakfast.

Also this week, Trader Joe's finally opened in Colorado -- not just in one location, but three -- with lines that rivaled those at Voodoo Doughnut and Dunkin' Doughnuts when those spots opened.

Former Future Brewing celebrated its grand opening, and Sonoda's finally dried up in LoDo.

I had a contract to work in Santa Monica years ago and lived in a hotel with a kitchenette . I drove all over trying to find a grocery store . It was not until the last day that I found out the building across the street was a trader joes. Never heard of it before !

The first time someone told me about it I got it confused with Trader Vic's and thought, "Oh wow, they're still around?"
