$24 Million Investment In DraftKings Should Shake Up The Daily Fantasy Sports Space

“The biggest news in the daily fantasy sports space to date was the $11 million in Series C financing received by market leader FanDuel in January. It demonstrated that despite lingering concerns regarding the legality of such offerings, major venture capital firms including Comcast Ventures are willing to invest hefty dollars into these start-ups in order to capture the continual growth in the world of fantasy sports. Today’s announcement by FanDuel competitor DraftKings reiterates the implied security that venture capital companies must maintain, because the money keeps pouring in.”

“Boston-based DraftKings, Inc. has just declared that it closed a $24 million Series B round of funding led by Redpoint Ventures, with participation by GGV Capital, Atlas Venture, and BDS Ventures. This great source of financing comes only 6 months after DraftKings closed a $7 million Series A round led by Atlas Venture (also involved in the new round). Combined with the $1.4 million in seed capital DraftKings received in April 2012, the company has secured a total of $35 million from outside sources (DraftKings’ Series A remained open and ended at more than $10 million in funding). A very impressive number for a company that has been in existence for less than 2 years.” read more…

“Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.”

I know the extent of my ignorance. My knowledge of the rules of English grammar is not 100%, and I know that for a fact. Sure, it doesn’t matter for the 99% who either don’t know any better or just don’t give a damn! But the grammar meanies know all the rules and, by gosh, they’ll call you on it. So I’ll write away, blissfully unaware of my grammatical errors, hoping the reader will be able to understand what I’m trying to say. The grammar patrol can go end themselves with a preposition.

Anyway, having said that, let’s get down to business.

And the business is Torres Mexican Restaurant on the ¹Federal Strip in Denver, Colorado.

From the high-quality, rich-wood dining chairs and cozy booths to the modern, newly remodeled bathrooms—to the respectful and polite servers in their smart, black & white uniforms, this place is all class. And I haven’t said a word about the fishbowl (size) margaritas or the cool bar area with a few booths and tables for dining (my favorite area.)

Traditional Mexican food served unpretentiously, yet respectfully, in a family-friendly, homey restaurant is what Torres is all about. The energy is high; the restaurant is spotless; the owners and staff aim to please, and they do.

The food is classic Mexican: Botanas (appetizers) including NACHOS ($6.75 – $10.05,) CHICKEN WINGS, FRIES, CALAMARI and more; ²FAJITAS: (steak & chicken $13.95,) (de camaron $16.90;) CARNITAS ($12.95,) TAQUITOS (3-pork $8.50,) TACOS (1 chicken or beef $2.10;) and FLAUTAS, BURRITOS, ENCHILADAS, TOSTADAS etc. View Torres’ menu here for all items and prices.

The high-quality chairs somehow remind me of a bull—standing its ground, perhaps due to the sturdiness of the strong, rich wood, and (one can’t really tell from the photo) the fact that the chair-legs and backs are poised like a strong bull.

Also on the menu you’ll find: Desayunos (BREAKFAST items ($2.60 – $9.75;) COMBINATIONS ($7.85-$10.60;) STEAK (here’s one of four on the menu:) Mexican T-bone served with potatoes, rice, beans and salad ($17.50;) SALADS; SEAFOOD: for example – BANQUET MARINARO with shrimp, oysters, fish, ceviche and more ($29.15,) or 7 MARES: combo seafood soup w/2 tortillas ($18.95;) SANDWICHES, TORTAS, BURGERS, VEGETARIAN items and DESSERTS are available, such as FLAN ($4.05.)

One of our favorite menu items is the Combination Burrito, smothered with: lettuce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, shredded beef, ground beef, chicken, chicharones and beans ($6.95.)

The little bar is the center attraction serving everything from giant Margaritas ($8) to regular size Margs and pitchers, wines from ($4.00,) and all of the full bar choices, including Courvoisier and Tres Generations. Note the large mounted fish above the bar.

²My understanding is that Fajitas are a USA/Texas contribution to Mexican cuisine.

“Our research confirms 1971 as first print date for “fajitas,” as we know them today.”

“November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon because it was the time to set traps, before the waters froze over. This Moon was also called the Full Frost Moon.”
