Like lots of empty lots around town, the open space on the southeast corner of Eighth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard where Annie's Café and a handful of apartment buildings and other businesses once stood, has banners advertising that it will host Christmas tree sales at some point soon.
Hopefully the trees at this lot will be tall, because as of this weekend, the lot was about twenty feet deep at points, making a little difficult to shop for trees without a ladder. - Jonathan Shikes
