Reader: What's Happening to Denver? All the Cool Places Are Vanishing!

Some longtime Denver restaurants — Andre's Confiserie Suisse, Le Central, Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe — closed in 2015, and Denver's losing some of its newer favorites, too — places that people with pets were particularly partial to. After a year of doggie drama, the Bark Bar closed last January, and exactly a year later the Barker Lounge — one of the city's most pet-friendly places — closed, too. As we reported last week, its space on Santa Fe Drive is now advertised on Craigslist. The sad news prompted Patricia to ask:
