Crazy About Denver: Good-bye, Alto and ESPN Zone

Alto bar Denver June 2009Perhaps 10 days after I first visited Alto Restaurant and Lounge on June 17, it has closed. I was looking forward to spending more time in the bar.

ESPN Zone in the Tabor Center will also close its doors, laying off 100 employees. And the Red Room on Capitol Hill closed some time ago.

In this recession, as in the previous one, Colorado felt the effects later than other parts of the country.

My thoughts are with all the employees who lost their jobs.
