Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Juicy Lucy's dries up in Cherry Creek

Juicy Lucy's has given up the ghost at 250 Josephine Street -- a ghost that's claimed so many other restaurants, including Papillon, Indigo, Go Fish Grille and Tula.

Although the restaurant closed suddenly last Thursday, the owners -- who also own the popular Juicy Lucy's in Glenwood Springs -- have been trying to sell it for some time. In a web listing where they're asking $150,000 for the business, they also said this: "Great opportunity for a full service restaurant and lounge located in Cherry Creek North. Turn-key business with transferrable liquor and cabaret license. Must see! On going business so please do not disturb the employees and use utmost discretion."

No discretion needed now. Juicy Lucy's has dried up.
