Not With A Bang, But Covfefe: The End Of Shooter's Grill

  • by: Colorado Pols

WEDNESDAY UPDATE: The Glenwood Springs Post-Independent confirms the end of Shooter’s Grill as we know it, though freshman GOP rolling calamity Rep. Lauren Boebert hints that (threatens?) some kind of “smaller scale” establishment may replace it. No promises:

Boebert said she doesn’t want to make any promises, but she and her husband, Jayson, are praying and planning to continue the Shooters brand, culture, name and presence on Rifle’s Third Street.

“We would just dramatically scale it back, because, obviously, we’re not in our building,” she said. “It may look like a Shooters coffee shop with pastries and some easy breakfast sandwiches and merchandise.”

The good news is, you can’t get food poisoning from a T-shirt. Monday’s original post follows: as usual, you heard it here first.


Multiple unconfirmed reports in the last 24 hours via the Twitters that the Shooter’s Grill in Rifle, the gun-themed restaurant that freshman GOP outrage vortex Rep. Lauren Boebert rode to fame but decidedly not fortune, has shut its doors:

As readers know, Shooter’s Grill lost hundreds of thousands of dollars during its few years of operation according to tax filings, and the eatery never lived down the 2017 incident in which Boebert’s food truck sickened dozens of spectators at a local rodeo. Quality food and service was never the draw of Shooter’s Grill, of course, bringing in customers (at least once for the novelty) with their armed and generally young female wait staff.

Boebert reportedly waited until after the June 28th primary to make the decision about closing Shooter’s Grill after the building’s landlord signaled his intention to cancel Boebert’s lease at the end of August. With Boebert’s Republican primary opponent dispatched, Boebert’s cash flow from her newfound fame looks secure enough to dispense with the dirty work of running a small-town greasy spoon–management of which Boebert had reportedly already farmed out to political supporters.

Join the good citizens of Rifle in wishing Shooter’s Grill a fond covfefe.

  1. Meanwhile in the Universe the Big Bang serves up something better than BangBang Salmonella Sliders:

    THE FIRST IMAGE from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. Known as Webb’s First Deep Field, this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 is overflowing with detail. The picture shows thousands of galaxies as they were 13 billion years ago. The frame of this view covers a section of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length.

    1. Yeah!!! let's hear it for the power of science, supported by government money and experise.


      More images come out at a NASA session tomorrow.  And that begins the flood of images available for scientific inquiry.  With a little good fortune at dodging things at the second Lagrange point or L2, images will begin accumulating and continue for a decade or two. 

      I'm not enough of a scientist to understand the importance of the mission.  But one of the images tomorrow is slated to be "Stephan’s Quintet: Five beguiling galaxies, four of them in a cluster about 290 million light-years away, in the constellation Pegasus. The quintet has been previously observed by the Hubble, and the new image will allow a side-by-side comparison of what the two space telescopes see as they gather light in different wavelengths." Hopefully, people will talk about the different capabilities and what they provide to the science community and the rest of us.
