Great story by +Lindsay Lauck about a team of Native American long distance runners who for them, running is a lifestyle and a tradition. 
Team Run in Beauty is made up of Native America female long distance runners and for them running is more than a lifestyle, it’s a tradition.

Without a doubt, Bodega has a compelling concept, and I was so excited to go there on a date night. A new cool speakeasy underground restaurant, that could take you back to the 1920s? Supposedly good food, and drinks? I was sold. Or so I thought. We arrived 15 minutes early before our reservation, the perfect amount of time to grab a cocktail before dinner. The hostess, instead of letting us go to the downstairs where we eventually found out there was a full bar, had us wait in the upstairs bar that only served beer. Beer wasn't hitting the spot as a pre-dinner drink so I skipped it. On a Saturday night, you expect a certain amount of energy when you go out. The hostess upstairs and downstairs, were a total buzz kill. I am not sure if they were "acting the part" by trying to be "secretive" and "exclusive," but they basically came off as not friendly and unwelcoming. The whole "secret key" felt contrived. And as far as being the cool and hip place in town, Bodega or "The Rest" was dead on a Saturday night and not a single soul frequented the bar the whole night. Our server was very nice and started us with cocktails that were $11 each and 90% ice, although they were tasty. If the cocktails were even $2 cheaper I might have been more inclined to ordering more than one, but decided to switch to water after my first drink. I ordered the "Hobo Trout," which was tasty and my only complaint is that it came with zero side dishes. I would have preferred a smaller piece of fish with complimentary side dishes instead of one giant portion of fish. My boyfriend ordered the Ruben, which the waiter said they spend several days cooking the meat in-house. Although he thought it was good, he felt like it was a lunch and not a dinner. For me, trout was the only thing I saw to my liking on the menu. The meat pie, fried chicken, ruben and mac and cheese are not what I consider "fine dining," and it bugged me that there was no menu online anywhere to look at before going. We had a small encounter with the manager when we walked around to look at the library after eating dinner. We got a very pretentious vibe like we weren't allowed to be in the library room. When a place is expensive as the Bodega you would expect it to be either elegant or fun. Bodega was neither. I though the waiter was nice, my trout was tasty but the overall experience fell short. My advice to the restaurant is to lighten up.
