No sooner had WaterCourse Foods moved from 13th Avenue into its new, bigger home at 837 East 17th Avenue than the building was suddenly covered with construction scaffolding and attendant crap. Obstacles like this are often enough to sink a restaurant, but WaterCourse continued to do a healthy -- very -- business. In fact, all that scaffolding might actually have helped, because it gave the veggie hippies a place to lock their bikes.

Still, it's good to see that all that the construction stuff is finally gone.

If only Pizzeria Mundo, at the other end of downtown at 1312 17th Street, was as lucky. But currently, this joint is almost completely hidden behind a scrim of tubes and planks and tarps, and it's suffering because of it. So this weekend, why not help out a very worthy pizza joint by heading down for a pie and a couple of PBRs off the tap? -- Jason Sheehan

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
