But B.U.F.F. is already rebuilding its bar empire. The group opened the University of Colorado-themed Ralphie's (not to be confused with the new Ralphie's in Boulder) in Louisville last year, and Noonan's Tavern in Aurora last March. Now it's taken over the space at 1135 East Evans Avenue that had been the horribly named Smugs (and was Fagan's for decades before that). After buffing up the place, B.U.F.F. plans to re-open it in November as Boone's Tavern.
