‘Life on the Road’ at Squash Blossom

       “Life on the Road” is the title of an upcoming show at the Squash Blossom art gallery in Old Colorado City.
       In keeping with the theme, local and regional artists “capture the beauty and serenity of the road… through a winding mountain road, across the prairie, and down the open highway,” a press release states.
       An artists' reception for the show will be Thursday, July 13th from 4 to 8 p.m. Squash Blossom is at 2531 W. Colorado Ave.
       The recently reopened McKelvey's Restaurant, owned by Bill and Joan Kessler, has closed again. “We have all sorts of customers, but we don't want to do it,” Bill Kessler said last week.
       The business, which had been open for lunches, was inside a restored two-story 1890 building at 2 S. 25th St. that sits on a 7,800 square foot lot. The Kesslers had bought the property in 1998.
       Kessler said he would like to see the restaurant reopened by a chef who has the desire to take on the challenge.
       West Side Auction has opened in the 15,000-square-foot space at 1201 W. Colorado Ave. The family-owned business is operated by Scott, Kelly, Austin and Mac McNeilus.
       Items for sale include antiques, collectibles and furniture. Auctions are on Fridays. Appointments can be scheduled during the week. The phone is 630-1022.
       House of Saigon is a new Vietnamese-Chinese restaurant at 1014 S. 21st St. (located in the site of the former Wong's restaurant).
       The owner is Thuy Nguyen. House of Saigon's menu includes traditional Vietnamese fare, including egg rolls with noodle bowl. The business is open Monday through Saturday. The phone is 473-6707.
