After eleven years, Lime is closing its location in Larimer Square this weekend -- but customers will have two days of fun in the meantime, filled with signature tacos and mighty margaritas. The "Farewell to the basement" party starts today, with a "Stay Late, Play Late" happy-hour menu featuring $3 house wine, beer and margaritas and $6 martinis. Although this location will close after the end of service Saturday, another downtown Lime is in the works; the restaurant will open in the Denver Pavilions this fall. In the meantime, Lime will continue operating out of its locations on Sixth Avenue, Winter Park and Greenwood Village. For more information, visit www.eatatlime.com
