This is a Good Sign!

A caption high up in the Wikipedia entry for “Civilization” says simply, “Cities characterize human civilization.” I would take that just a bit further and say, “Cities that offer a decent selection of places to have a good breakfast at 1:30 or 2:00 on a weekend afternoon characterize human civilization.” Downtown Denver offers some choices, and in quite a tasty variety. Some very good. Some almost as good. And, then, some others. Larimer Square has…

Tags be Gone!

Kudos to the group restoring and converting the former Colorado Saddlery building at 15th and Wynkoop in LoDo.

Presumably to become windows again for planned retail spaces. Once knocked out, they covered the openings with plywood, very neatly, which soon became…
