Yes, that's a wreath made of French fries. LoHi SteakBar is definitely in the spirit of the season, and its spud-studded holiday decor just took first place in the LoHi Merchants Group wreath contest, besting two dozen other LoHi businesses, including Uber Sausage and Jezebel's.

And that's not the only winning news coming out of LoHi SteakBar, a popular hangout in the heart of LoHi that opened in June 2009, in the former home of Northstar, an early brewpub. The restaurant's expansion is almost complete, and the private dining room that's being added beyond the current dining room should be open by New Year's Eve.

But don't expect to see the French-fry wreath then. Despite many layers of shellac, this holiday decoration might not make it past Christmas.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
