Friday, July 31st at 9 a.m.--that's the opening that Snooze owner Jon Schlegel is promising for the second location of his two-unit breakfast empire.
"I don't know if you've peeked inside," Schlegel said to me this morning (I have), "but it's so close."
And man, it better be. Because while the public opening for the new spot at 700 North Colorado Boulevard is still a week off, he's already got three days of soft-opens/benefit services scheduled, starting on the 28th--one for Denver's Road Home, another for The Alliance for Sustainable Colorado, and a third for the V.A. Hospital and Veteran's Wheelchair Olympics. All three events are being done for free, with donations being accepted for the particular charities. Reservations are, of course, going to be required. Contact Snooze (the original) at 303-297-0700 for more details.
