No way on Mother Lode

Let’s get real!

For the city of Aspen to buy the Mother Lode Restaurant to add to the Wheeler Opera House operations as a cultural center is a fool’s way to add to sinking a big ship of fools.

Look at the Getty Center with its museum multiplex and its eateries.

Also look at the museum, the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University with its restaurant.

The sale of the Mother Lode Restaurant is “a big robber baron banquet” for the owners and a crummy affair for city government and Aspenites.

I am certain Aspenites have read studies on museum and cultural center operations and trends. Or am I ahead of the Aspen cultural elite because The J. Paul Getty Museum taught us Getty fans well many years ago.

Vote “no” way for the sale.
