Champps Americana has wiped Colorado off the map of its locations; all three Champps that had been located in this state are now closed.
The three Colorado locations, which were all in the southern suburbs, shuttered suddenly over the weekend.
Westword contacted the Fox & Hound Restaurant Group, which owns Champps Entertainment, but has not heard back. According to itsFacebook page, some other Champps locations, including several in Ohio, were also closed recently.
