Sputnik reopens tomorrow after getting ripped for liquor-law violation

Sputnik, the hipper-than-thou Baker 'hood bar, renowned for its hangover weekend brunch, live music acts and globetrotting menu catering (mostly) to vegetarians and vegans, has gone dark, at least until tomorrow, when the tatted 'tenders can begin pouring booze again.

Seems as though the groovy watering hole got itself into some trouble with the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses for violation of the Colorado liquor/beer code, as evidenced by the "hang in shame" sign currently plastered on the window. Oops.

It won't be shuttered for long, though. Sputnik will reopen promptly at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow morning pouring Bloodys and PBR to those who can provide proof-positive evidence of their age eligibility.
