Lime shortage hits Denver -- talk about a wedge issue!
Adelitas pours the best house margarita in town.
The infamous lime shortage -- which has been blamed on everything from a citrus disease to a Mexican drug cartel -- has hit Denver.

Just the day before, we'd had no problem getting a big wedge of lime -- delivered in a tidy shotglass -- at a far less likely location, the Hangar Bar, a classic dive that dates from 1938. Fortunately, the lime didn't.
What signs of the lime shortage have you spotted around town?
