Buca di Beppa is touting a new beginning -- or "beggining," if you look closely at the subject line -- by sending a half-off coupon to prospective members of its club.
You can't use those coupons in downtown Denver, of course; the Buca location at 1400 Market Street has been shuttered since June 2008, with no new tenants in sight. But Colorado still has Buca outposts in Broomfield and Littleton.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
