Our Backbeat blog shared the sad news yesterday: D Note, a mainstay in Arvada for a dozen years, will close on January 3. When the DeGraff family sold the spot two years ago to Dave and Mernie Rosenberg, live music became as integral to the spot as the pizza that had made so many fans. But after the new owners fell behind on rent, "the landlord pulled our lease," Dave says. "That's the way it goes. It's a tough business. We tried to do right by the bands. It's just that Olde Town is changing a little bit. I don't know if it's a good thing that we're getting out but we'll find out down the road."

Says Ken Arkind:
Used to be a cook there. Made all the food off of a George Forman grill until the pizza kitchen opened. Great job, they really supported the arts and put a lot of smiles on people's faces.
This is a HUGE loss for the community. I feel like we should petition to keep it open.
When was the last time you visited D Note? Would you sign a petition to try to save it?
