After decades as a legendary dive, the Old Curtis Street Tavern closed last January. It's since been reborn as the Curtis Club, a sleek, old West-styled gastro-pub with a contemporary menu of locally-sourced products. Owner Scott Bagus, a veteran of the Denver music scene as a member of Moccasin/Nightingale, and chef Eric Johnson celebrated with a soft opening last Friday that was so hot the fire department came. And tonight's grand opening should be hotter still, with a functioning kitchen, full menu, live music -- and the possibility of you front and center for the 10:30 p.m. show of Mile High Soul, with $50 in food and drink credits. The Curtis Club is saving a table with your name on it for 9 p.m. -- if you win, that is. Continue on to enter for a chance to win.
