One of our favorite 24/7 diners, McCoy's, fnally found a use for the locks on its doors: The restaurant is temporarily closed for a kitchen upgrade. A banner visible from I-70 lets truckers and other passersby know that this late-night landmark is expected to reopen in early February. And then it will be time for another tequila sunrise at McCoy's — since the diner is one of the few spots in town that's open all day and night and also has a full liquor license (remember: no alcohol sold between 2 and 7 a.m.).
