No sooner had we given a Best of Denver award to Denver FUGLY than Brad Evans's Facebook group was causing trouble again, this time discussing the fugly fate of a lovely Queen Anne at 2822 Federal Boulevard, which has been posted with a non-historic status application. The owner could get permission to demolish the structure unless someone fights to have it designated historic — and judging from the conversation on Denver FUGLY, plenty of people are fighting mad. "Certainly, not everything is worth saving, but the imbeciles that would tear this beauty down on Federal/29th - we have no kind words for the likes of you," says Evans.
A little further west, just off Tennyston Street, Diebolt Brewing recently surrendered on a trademark case it might have won — but paying the legal fees alone would have drained the popular but tiny brewery. Colorado Beer Man Jonathan Shikes reports from the front lines of this battle.
