Reader: I'll miss thinking Laura Shunk might be sitting next to me...

Along with her last review, of Fruition, last week outgoing Cafe critic Laura Shunk served up her list of "Denver spots I'll miss most." Colt & Gray and other bars in LoHi figured prominently.

And that list inspired this from Aceranchero:

I'm going to miss the fact that somewhere in our neighborhood was a like-minded confederate that I knew by name in print only and that perhaps somewhere, on some night, you might have been sitting next to me in a bar or at the next table enjoying what an interesting food town Denver, and LoHi specifically, has become. I guess I'll never know for sure. Best wishes...

What do you miss when you're not in Denver? Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation under Laura Shunk's goodbye list.
