You missed  a closing:  Bombay Bowl on Arapahoe Rd (the original location).   The signs have been down for a while, and I called the new location (6th and Lincoln) and verified that that is indeed their only location now.

TIP for a Cafe Society story:  I am VERY curious to know the story as to why all Denver Metro area "Paradise Bakery" locations are now called "Woody Creek Cafe" and yet still have the same menu, etc.  This change happened over the past 3-4 weeks at all locations.  I am inclined to think that this would be frowned upon by the Paradise Bakery corporate folks, and am curious as to why this happened and whether they have permission from Paradise to keep the exact same menu??

From the Magic of Google, I found this:  "A few years ago Panera acquired Paradise Bakery & Café. As time has gone on they have slowly converted the corporate stores to the Panera menu. Their plan was to do the same with the franchise stores such as ours here in the metro Denver area. We were given the option of converting our menu or keeping our current menu and fresh baked bakery goods and changing our name. That is what we have chosen to do. We are now called Woody Creek Bakery & Café."

Thanks for the info!  I am sure there will be others who wonder what has happened, and I didn't find anything on any news site.
