MegaFauna, the award-winning retail store, boutique, cafe and artists' emporium, closed its doors at 2101 Larimer Street on September 28. But the news is all good, because MegaFauna needed to close in order to move to its new home at 3102 Blake Street. And it will launch that space tomorrow, October 5, with a grand opening party from 6 p.m. to midnight.

The new location, in the heart of Denver's flourishing RiNo District, is double the size of the old one and will house a much more expansive set-up -- including in-house screen- printing, a creative salon, a bigger coffee shop and café, and a much larger selection of women's clothing.
"As of opening night we'll have twice as much women's apparel," says John McCaskill, the visionary owner of MegaFauna. "For the grand opening we're going to be having three fashion presentations -- trunk shows and sample sales for new female designers."
With construction still going this week, he's cutting it close, but McCaskill is certain that MegaFauna will be ready for its grand opening party tomorrow, which will include live, local music, a "hip-pop" presentation by Mike McGinley and a few more cool, surprise shindigs that we don't want to spoil.
