Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Twin Peaks is coming to Colorado, the Texas-based chain proudly announced yesterday, bringing baseball, beer and boobs, as Laura Shunk reported here.

That post prompted this from bizzygeek:

Thanks for the heads up CS Editors! While you're at it, are there any new McDonald's locations springing up around town that we should be made aware of?

But other readers, including Brandon, appreciated the alert:

Sorry if we don't roll over and piss all over ourselves for your lame-ass concept. And for attacking Westword for their sarcastic but truthful warning about your cutting edge joint, uh, way to say hello to your new city and let us know in advance what dealing with you is all about. Is it any wonder why Colorado people just can't stand anything from texas? I for one will proudly say "told you so" when you close that shop and head back home

By the way, Twin Peaks will land at 14055 West Colfax Avenue, right next to Colorado Mills, the mall that's devoted October to "Celebrate Women." We're not sure that a restaurant that asks you to "grab a pair" is quite what the mall had in mind.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
