Rosedale | Print |  E-mail

The Rosedale neighborhood bid adieu to one of the great names in comfort food late last year, when Crown Burger closed its doors at 2387 S. Downing St., to make way for Roaming Buffalo Bar-B-Que.

     The Queen & King of Q, Rachael and Coy Webb, dish up a tempting array of Colorado Craft BBQ that you are invited to consume by the pound, by the plate or between a bun dressed with a variety of house-made sides like Honey Lime Cole Slaw, Red-Eye Cowboy Beans, Roasted Corn & Cheese and more.


Bonnie Brae | Print |  E-mail
We told you last month that The Little Flower Market, a Bonnie Brae landmark for years, has emerged in new digs at 1685 S. Colorado Blvd., just south of Safeway. Taking its place at 709 S. University Blvd., next to Campus Lounge, are a pair of new businesses, Small Planet eBikes and Ink! Coffee.

     Tom Wilson began Small Planet eBikes out of his Longmont garage in 2006, and spread the good news of motorized bicycling to Dallas about a year ago, adding Bonnie Brae to the mix late last month. Small Planet eBikes will be open part-time during February (depending on the weather), with full-time hours kicking in March 1.

     Local author, former Washington Park resident and longtime Profile pal  Bonnie McCune will discuss her latest tome Falling Like A Rock, at Denver BookBar, 4280 Tennyson St., Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 5-6p.m. A perfect Valentine’s Day read, it examines highs and lows on the rocky road to relationships, set in a backdrop of familiar Colorado scenery. Two other local writers will appear at the BookBar event, Danica Favorite and Susu Vieira.

Platt Park/S. Pearl St. | Print |  E-mail

North of the popular Park Burger restaurant (not to mention the offices of Washington Park Profile), MK Style has ceased retail operations at 1882 S. Pearl St., after a 3-year stay. Owners Katie Wolfe Agron and Molly Simons found the time and energy required to maintain a retail space was robbing them of time to indulge in their true passion – decorating.

     MK fans, never fear – all orders in progress will be filled and the indomitable pair will continue to offer the decorating and design services you’ve come to know them for. Info: visit shopmkstyle.com or call 303-722-1178.

The landmark Sears Building, 2735 E. 1st Ave., will be demolished in the near future to accommodate some mix of retail, residential and office uses according to recent statements by David Tryba, the architect involved in the project. AsThe Profile went to press, no specific development plans had been received by Denver’s office of Community Planning and Development.

     Sears Holdings recently announced plans to close its 60-year-old Cherry Creek store at the end of March as part of a shut-down of some 235 locations nationwide. A liquidation sale is now under way.
