Openings and Closings

The Tea Box shuts the lid in Cherry Creek

Frankly, we could never understand how the Tea Box, at 2353 East Third Avenue, stayed in business -- even with that "dim sum" sign in the window.

Now we no longer need to ponder that question: The storefront operation has closed. Signs on the spot indicate it may reopen -- but definitely not in the same location.
