Cafe Pure is a tiny cafe that fronts the Aveda salon at the corner of 17th and Market streets, providing a shot of caffeine to customers in for a haircut and a midday respite for cubicle warriors from buildings nearby.
The cafe would like to offer more than just coffee and pastries, though, and so it's applying for a liquor license in order to supply a line of wine and beer to pampered patrons and thirsty neighbors -- and if you're one of those thirsty neighbors, the espressoria would like you to please come down and sign its petition.
Cafe Pure has a date with the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses on June 24.
