Reader: I Saw the Love of My Life at Cheeky Monk — and Then Sobered Up

Colorado's craft-beer scene has gained a reputation around the country — but as a matchmaker? The news that Cheeky Monk was closing up shop at 534 East Colfax Avenue — and closing up fast — inspired a lot of comments, some from fans and some from foes. And a few were surprisingly heartfelt. Says Ed:

Good memories from that place. I only lived two blocks away.

Adds Angela:

Sad news. Site of our first date!

And then there's this from Dave: 

I'll never forget looking across the bar and seeing a woman who was the love of my life. Unfortunately, I sobered up.

Will you miss the Cheeky Monk? What do you think of the changes along Colfax?
