When we last checked up on Heaven Star, which the owners of Super Star Asian (the best dim sum joint in the city) are opening at 7600 West 120th Avenue in Broomfield, the opening date was slated for January 10. But last week the manager said that was looking soft, owing to inspections not yet completed and some work still to be finished.
Now we hear that Heaven Star won't open until mid-January. Fortunately, we have Super Star to tide us over, since it's staying put at 2200 West Alameda (above), despite the planned redevelopment of Alameda Square.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
