Best Name for a Dispensary 2016 | Pig 'N Whistle | Best of Denver® | Best Restaurants, Bars, Clubs, Music and Stores in Denver | Westword

But anyone who remembers boxer Eddie Bohn's famous complex — a motel, barbecue joint and lounge on the Fabulous 40 strip patronized by such celebrities as Jack Dempsey and Roy Rogers — can't help but appreciate the skunky-smelling homage sitting right where the original Pig once did. Sadly, Bohn's place burned down in 2010, but the pot shop that rose from its ashes remains committed to keeping the Pig's memory alive — as well as doing a little burning of its own.
