Larimer Hot House goes cold

Larimer Hot House has gone cold, less than six months after it opened at 2810 Larimer Street, in the former home of Espo Gelato.

Most of the contents have been removed, and the few that remain are tagged with a "sold" sign. And when you dial Larimer Hot House, you get this message: "Unfortunately, we are no longer in business. Thank you for your patronage."
