Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Walnut Room Pizzeria has liquor-license hearing today

The Walnut Room brought new life -- and cash -- to NoDo, the area northeast of Coors Field. But for its next venture, it's taking on an area that's already ground zero for hipsters: Broadway.

And at 9 a.m. today, Walnut owner John Burr will be at the Denver Department of Excise and License for a liquor-license hearing for the space at 2 Broadway, which formerly was home to Freaky's, and has been transformed over the last several months into the Walnut Room Pizzeria -- and what's certain to be another hipster hangout.

But Burr will have to move fast to make good on that fall opening promise.
