Photos: City Spirit reunited at Taxi over the weekend

Years before the seedy side of downtown was officially named the Lower Downtown Historic District, artists and other hipsters recognized that it was the creative heart of Denver. And at its heart? City Spirit.

Although the cafe closed fifteen years ago, it's spirit lives on -- and was much in evidence at Friday night's City Spirit Reunion at Taxi, another project by Mickey Zeppelin and Susan Wick, the founders of City Spirit.
