Readers' Choice: Tattered Cover Book Store
Hidden behind the Hard Rock Cafe and in the shade of the Denver Pavilions, Jerri's Tobacco Shop isn't the kind of store you happen upon accidentally. It's a place you seek out because someone's brother recommended it or because a guy at the bar told you about it. Located downtown since 1955, when Jerry Goodman opened for business, the shop has moved several times and is now owned by Jerry's son Bret. But it still hooks customers up with a wide selection of stogies, cigar accoutrements, pipes, tobacco and, since 2006, a nice trove of wines, including a couple of Colorado vintages. It's the perfect place to end a long day of work or kick off the beginning to a too-short weekend.
