SHOW ME HOW
Hospoda, the restaurant that billed itself as "friendly beer house," has closed after a good effort in a bad location, at 3763 Wynkoop Street (right off Brighton Boulevard), the former home of the Wynkoop Grill. Jason Sheehan loved Hospoda it when I dragged him there -- the ambience was a crazy mix of West (cowhide bar stools) meets Eastern European fare, and you could order a side of green chile with your potato pancakes.
The place is now locked up tight, although a sign in the window notes that you can book it for private parties.
