Video: Eating Up East Colfax Avenue

"It's Colfax — there's never a dull moment," says Rich Illgen, owner of the R & R Lounge, one of the establishments featured in our "Eating Up Denver" video series. In "Eating Up: Colfax," videographer Tony White captures the spirit of what's old and new on Denver's most notorious drag, specifically on the blocks between Elm and Hudson streets. After checking in at the R & R, see what's new at a hip barbershop/whiskey bar, drop into a neighborhood fine-dining restaurant that's served the area since 2001, and visit one of Colfax's many Ethiopian eateries.
