Congratulations to Lhakpa Sherpa!

Sherpa House Restaurant in Golden Colorado

Lhakpa Sherpa, the owner of the Sherpa House Restaurant and Culture Center, was honored at last night’s city council meeting.  Lhakpa moved from Nepal to Golden 20 years ago.  He attended college in the U.S. then began Sherpa Landscaping.  Once that was going smoothly, he started the Sherpa House restaurant.

He is now an American citizen and helps other Sherpas come to Colorado by sponsoring them and helping them with their paperwork.

Lhakpa himself is an accomplished climber, as are most of the staff who work in the Sherpa House.

The next time you’re enjoying a meal there, contemplate this fact:  the Sherpas who are here in Golden (Lhakpa Sherpa, Ngima Karma Sherpa, Da Nuru Sherpa, Wangchhu Sherpa, Phura Geljen Sherpa, Jangbu Sherpa, Mingma Tenzin Sherpa, and Ngim Chhamji Sherpa) have summitted Mount Everest a total of of 53 times!

We already knew the food was good, but we hadn’t appreciated that the staff are world-class athletes!

“Ferociously Clever, Furiously Funny”

If you haven’t purchased tickets to see God of Carnage at Miners Alley Playhouse, you should probably get right on that.  It’s getting great reviews, and tickets will be selling out soon.  (I waited too long on Little Shop of Horrors and couldn’t get tickets for that one…I’m still irritated with myself.)

Check out these reviews:

Ferociously Clever, Furiously Funny God of Carnage at Miners Alley
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2016 AT 5:54 A.M.

“God of Carnage is ferociously clever and — under Len Matheo’s direction — so funny you end up hiccuping with laughter time and time again.”

~Juliet Wittman, Westword. Read the full review HERE.

“If you haven’t seen “God of Carnage” before, please do. If you have seen it before, you still should see THIS production. It’s seamless, serious, funny, and brilliantly acted by some of the best talent in Colorado.”

~Bill Wheeler, Theatre Colorado. Read the full review HERE.
