With the Bronco's playing on a Sunday night, I enjoy hitting up a bar or two and watching the game. It is so much more exciting to watch the game at bar with drunks than watching it from home. Woody's is a great place to drink, eat, and watch the game.

Woody's is all about its Wood Fired pizza. It gives the pizza a smokey flavor that is unique to all of Northern Colorado. You can get individual pan size pizzas or pies big enough for the whole family. However, it is most popular to get their Pizza Buffet. The Pizza buffet is a large assortment of all kinds of pizza. They have everything from plain old pepperoni to many unique specialty pizzas. A few of the specialty pizzas that I enjoyed had names such as Taco Pizza, Greek Pizza, and Buffalo Pizza. The Taco Pizza has taco seasoning, beef, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and is topped with crunched up taco shells. It was very spicy and very good. The Greek Pizza has a white sauce and topped artichokes, olives, feta, and chicken. It was very rich, but good enough for a second slice. The Buffalo pizza is my favirote. It's Franks Red Hot Sauce with chicken, jalepenos, and lots of cheese. It tastes more like a buffalo wing than a pizza. You can also request the pizza chef to cook any pie that you please. In addition to the Pizza Buffet, they also have an optional Soup/Salad Bar which is a normal selection of salads and sides and their famous Beer Cheese Soup (a must try).

They had lots of drink specials at the bar and the bar staff was very friendly and talkative. I had a very good Bloody Mary and we all bucked up and had a Car Bomb. Overall it was a good experience, and I would suggest going. I liked it enough that I will be going back more often.

Every year McDonald's comes out with their "McRib" Sandwhich. We were on our way home from Denver, and needed to stop for a restroom break and sometimes McDonald's is the easiest place to stop. Well after a visit to the restroom, I was drawn in by the smells of their fries. I wouldn't be surprised if they pump the smell into the bathrooms to draw in visitors like ourselves.

I couldn't help myself, so I decided to give the McRib sandwhich a try. It's been a long time since I've had one, and they are exactly what a I remember. I believe that its made from mechanically seperated pork (correct me if I am wrong) and formed into a rib shaped patty. Then it is cooked, and soaked in Mickey D's own BBQ sauce with onions and pickles on a longer seasame seed bun. It was very good, especially considering we were coming back from a party where I had been drinking (not driving of coarse). The fries were also very good, and very fresh. That is my biggest complaint about Fast Food fries is that they are not fresh and overly salted to hide that fact.

If you have never endulged and had a McRib sandwhich - do yourself a favor and go and get one. The McRib is part of American Pop Culture and shouldn't be missed when its on the menu.
