A landmark day for Landmark when Comedy Works South opens

There have been lots of problems at the Landmark project in Greenwood Village -- prices up, tenants out. (At one point, Sparrow was going to not only open a second restaurant in the development, but a market -- but then the restaurant on Seventh Avenue closed, and Sparrow Market Cafe flew the coop, too). But while Jing has been bursting at the seams, other restaurants that are sticking with the project have not been able to stick with their original schedule; Chinook Tavern left Cherry Creek in June, but there's no telling when it will open in Landmark; Lime likely won't make its mid-October target.

But finally, Comedy Works South is really getting its doors open at 5345 Landmark Place in Greenwood Village. On Thursday, October 9, Wende Curtis's second club will throw a big, private party, and on October 10, Comedy Works South will be open to the public. And this club not only has a stage (George Lopez is the headliner that first weekend), but a private ballroom and Lucy, an American restaurant with a Southern accent that's named for Curtis's bulldog.
