Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Broadway has seen plenty of Mex-and-match action this year, from the closing of 3 Monkeys Cantina to the opening of a second Zocalo and the imminent transformation of Delite into Juanita's.

And now Illegal Pete's is Broadway-bound, too.

The home-grown burrito chain plans to open a third Denver location in a former auto repair spot at 270 South Broadway. And it's going not just for a liquor license, but a cabaret license, since live music is a big part of Pete's pull.

The hearing is set for September 28.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
