Roslyn Grill, the colorful dive at 504 East Colfax Avenue, wasn't open to see the new year start; by then a sign had been posted on the door, claiming that the bar is closed for remodeling.
There was never a Roslyn at the Roslyn Grill -- and not much of a grill, as Bill Gallo noted in his 2006 profile of the place. But the bar had enough spirit to survive a move from 14th Street (its original, silver-painted home is now the front yard of the Colorado Convention Center) to a new/old spot on East Colfax.
For almost two decades, at least. We're betting that once the "remodeling" is done, the Roslyn will be gone for good.
