Denver Diner Now Hiring, Preparing for Grand Reopening

It's been almost eleven months since a fire closed the Denver Diner, a fifty-year-old Denver institution that George Skordas has owned for almost half of its life. Since the blaze, this classic coffee shop/late-night hangout at 740 West Colfax Avenue has been kept under wraps while it undergoes not just repairs, but a major renovation — with a sign posted in November promising "grand reopening coming soon." Last week, though, two signs appeared that indicated the Denver Diner is finally about to emerge from rehab. The first? The neon sign started glowing like a beacon.

And the second? This ad is now on Craigslist:
