I miss Calvin's, the renegade feel of the town, cheap rents, cheap beer and jobs that paid about the same they do today.
I miss Denver when she was dangerous. Now it seems like it has padded walls, its edge is dull and will only cut the the meat the wealthy can eat. I want the Denver with shoe leather steaks, no corporate theme parks , the Denver that made you feel like you were in the middle of nowhere, with the potential to be somewhere. Now that its somewhere, it's about as deep as the kiddie pool at the forgotten Celebrity Sports Center.
Oh, boo hoo, Denver has turned from a predominantly rundown, "sketchy," po-dunk cow-town to a world-class city. As a fellow native, I'm calling BS. Denver is better for this redevelopment and revitalization. We have a plethora of arts and culture, with burgeoning neighborhoods drawing educated millenials into our city faster than any other in the country.Do you remember the Yum Yum Tree?
