The owners of City, O' City were at the Wellington E. Webb building last Friday, going for an expanded liquor license that will cover their soon-to-expand space.
The plans have been approved, and work on the much-needed expansion into the former hair salon next door will take place next month. But the project is so extensive that City, O' City will have to close while the work is done.
So at the end of service on Sunday, July 31, the original City, O' City will close its doors, with plans to reopen on September 1.
We'll miss this ultra-hip hangout, our pick for Best Vegetarian Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2011, but we can't wait to see what City can do with more space.
And in the meantime, the sibling WaterCourse Foods, which once occupied City, O' City's original home, will remain open for business, serving up everything a vegetarian could desire.
