Reader: With $5 Buck Drinkery, the Dollar Store Concept Hits the Denver Dining Scene!

Today the former LimeXS at 730 East Sixth Avenue will be resurrected as the $5 Buck Drinkery, featuring food and drink menus with nearly everything priced at five dollars or less. Owner Curt Sims says he wants to give the neighborhood a gathering space, explaining, "Clearly there's always a market for inexpensive things." And readers were quick to respond to the news — with cheap shots. Says Steve:
The five dollar buck drinkery? April Fool's.
Adds Shane:
Glad to see the Dollar Store concept come to the Denver restaurant scene.
And then there's this from Ann:
 Karma is a bitch. My ex-husband owns an expensive home across the street from this place.
The redundantly named $5 Buck Drinkery opens today, April 1 — and that's no joke. Drink up.
