This was a quiet week for openings and closings, unless you're looking for new locations of your favorite fast- food joints. Cupbop, the Salt Lake City chain that does Korean barbecue in a cup and doesn't plan on slowing down until "all creatures in the universe experience Cupbop," opened its second metro Denver shop. The first is in Arvada; the second is on Colfax across from the Fitzsimons medical complex and is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

And in Lone Tree, In-N-Out Burger opened its third Colorado restaurant, after debuting in Aurora and Colorado Springs last November. The company experienced major COVID-19 outbreaks in January, with more than 160 cases reported between the two stores, but that hasn't curtailed long lines at the drive-thru.

Here's our complete list of openings for the week of February 22 to 28, 2021:
