Update: Great Scotts benefit cancelled

Westword staffers who grew up in the northern 'burbs are great fans of Great Scotts Eatery, the red-and-white-striped, '50s-style diner at 7510 Highway 287 in Broomfield.

They speak fondly of the burgers, the fries, the shakes. And today, Great Scotts was supposed to be serving up its good food for a good cause: CASA, the Adams County/Broomfield non-profit that supplies court-appointed special advocates for children. The benefit has been cancelled because of snow -- but Great Scotts is still serving.
