Wednesday's Pie

At Larimer Square, a set of stairs leads down to a tiny, brightly lit foyer with checkered floors. It's just enough space to hold an old-fashioned pie counter, an antique register and a chalkboard menu that lists the daily pie specials: whole pies available for pick-up and slices that you can consume, possibly with a cup of coffee, in-shop. Wednesday's Pie was originally open only on Wednesdays, but these days you can order, pick up or sit down for pie any day of the week. The shop also serves as a front for Green Russell, Frank Bonanno's subterranean speakeasy bar, which slings cocktails and bar snacks (and slices of Wednesday's Pie!) on the other side of the silver pie-shop door.
