For more than a year, Mark Antonation ate his way up Federal Boulevard. With that journey done, he'll now explore different cuisines from around the globe right here in metro Denver, one month at a time, in Ethniche. Driving to Aurora to eat Ethiopian cuisine seemed a little counter-intuitive, at l ... More >>
Drunken throngs amassed on Colfax last night to celebrate the arrival of the newly refurbished Squire Lounge. While the Squire had a reputation for being one of Denver's diciest dive bars, it was nevertheless beloved by its regular patrons, many of whom would schlep over to 7-11 instead of using the ...

If you grew up in Lakewood, Aurora, Wheat Ridge or Denver proper like me, chances are good that there's a slice of Colfax Avenue that holds a special, if not dangerous and possibly regrettable, meaning to you. Last week I passed by Smiley's Laundromat on East Colfax and noticed that it was all clo ... More >>
9NewsOwners of a day care center on 32nd Avenue told 9News reporter Will Ripley on Monday that they were "shocked" to find out The Clinic was opening its third medical marijuana center down the street. Their gripe, they say, is that the shop violates a Denver ordinance that forces MMCs to sta ... More >>
When we first came across Rhombus Jerk, a new webcomic series from Joe Flores, we were delighted, charmed and slightly terrified by the innocuous but totally random humor embedded in each panel. Over time it has tackled subjects like "Wookie in a UFO," "Reimagined Famous Logos," and other sur ... More >>
I love fast food, but prior to the announcement that Aurora resident Zion Gray had won Popeye’s national “Are You Bonafide?” video contest, I hadn’t heard a thing about the company's call for thirty-second clips from chicken lovers across the country. So on my way to one of the area's easter ... More >>
The Squire celebrates four years of crazy.
The concept behind the Colfax Marathon seemed like a can't-miss proposition. After all, Colfax Avenue -- America's longest main street -- runs exactly the length of a marathon, and passes through some very colorful parts of three towns. But what worked conceptually didn't work in reality, according ... More >>
The Colfax Marathon changes its course.
Why is this race skipping the best stretch of this street?
The migrational habits of Colfax buses has puzzled scientists for quite some time. The feast or famine phenomenon is common – no bus will appear for 40 minutes, then three 15s in a row will appear, leapfrogging gracefully all the way down Colfax. The sweetest position to have is the last bus in ... More >>
Sengers on Colfax
The concept is great: a marathon on the longest non-highway street in America. It's the reality that sucks, at least for those of us who subjected ourselves yesterday to the torture that was the Colorado Colfax marathon. The course is an uphill battle of Colfaxian proportions, with the majority of ... More >>
Red Room (along with seven other bars along East Colfax) 7:00 pm Saturday, May 19 My favorite memory from my first Colfax Crawl was my former German roommate being mistaken for a prostitute. We were sitting on the corner of Colfax and Williams stuffing Burger King in our drunken mouths, when a car ... More >>
Crack numbed the hooker so much that she didn’t even realize the foot that she was walking on was broken. For weeks she walked down Colfax, too high to feel the pain, turning tricks for as little as $10 to get another rock. By the time she finally sobered up, the broken foot was so badly damaged t ...

Baby Girl has a baby girl. About a year has passed since the former Colfax streetwalker graduated from the Chrysalis Project, a program designed to rehabilitate women who've been selling their bodies for crack. It hasn't all been smooth sailing for Baby Girl. She did a little time this past spring ... More >>
The reappearance of the streamlined Super Chef sign on Colfax -- uncovered as the Walnut Cafe was making way for the new Emilio's restaurant -- reminds me of how I came of age eating two-egg breakfasts — with bacon, hash browns, wheat toast and jelly — in Super Chef's hallowed maroon-up ... More >>
All Colfax, all the time.
The "wickedest" street can compete.
A gamble helped the rebirth of Colfax
The street is getting hot, but the fight for Colfax is finally cooling down.
Rampaging bears! Rampaging Buffs! Criminals in the buff! It happened here... unfortunately.
Will the real you please stand up?
The yolk's on us
A clothes encounter with Colfax Avenue.
The hole story
The last gulp.
Colfax cowers before a full-fledged yuppie insurrection.
From the week of May 16, 2002
Loose laws have turned Denver into an easy place for hookers to do business, but the fun's about to end.
