The Crypt Is Seized for Back Taxes. That Smarts!
The Crypt, Denver's beloved adult store and sex shop, has closed its doors. On September 30, both of the locations on Broadway were shuttered; they'd been seized by the City of Denver because of "unpaid taxes." Along with a notice from the city regarding the tax seizure, the door of the location across the street from the Mayan Theatre, at 8 Broadway, has a note that reads: "This store is closed. Sorry for any inconvenience."

The timing is particularly unfortunate, because while the shops were go-to stores for fetishists and other fun-lovers year-round, the Crypt also had so many good Halloween costume options. Will the Crypt reopen? That's up to the owners, who would need to settle their back-tax issues before the business is sold off by Denver.
