Openings and Closings

Hog Wild BBQ closes its Denver outpost

If you go hog wild for Hog Wild BBQ, you're going to need to drive to Fort Collins to get your fix.

The shop, at 2103 South Broadway, has closed -- a victim of the City of Denver's plan to widen Evans. Owners Chris and Katie Robinson, who moved to Fort Collins in 2006 and opened a joint there specializing in the North Carolina-style 'cue Chris grew up on, then expanded down south, may reopen in Denver. But not until spring -- at least, Chris says.
