Gary Lee's Motor Club & Grub on South Broadway
came to a halt this week. The motorcycle-themed bar was founded in 2012 by Denver artist Gary Lee Bomar, who passed away in 2015 after a car accident in Mexico; other potential tenants are reportedly interested.
Over in West Highland, the closing of the Inventing Room Dessert Shop is only temporary; this tasty spot at 4433 West 29th Avenue is just going into hibernation for the winter. While the liquid nitrogen ice cream and other frozen delights won't be back until next summer, chef/owner Ian Kleinman isn't going into the deep freeze entirely. He's still running his catering company, which will present a series of "Gobblefunk" dinners, the first of which is scheduled for Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Information and reservations can be found on the Inventing Room website
