Reader: Gabor's replacement will show what the suburbs think Capitol Hill is all about

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Gaborssign.jpg
The comments keep coming about Gabor's, the classic neighborhood bar whose closure was the biggest bombshell of the new year; the space is slated to become Marion Street Tavern this summer. In the meantime, regulars keep pouring out their opinions.

Here's the latest from Boz:

C'mon y'all, give the new place a chance. With an updated menu and wall decorations that reflect what suburbanites think Capitol Hill character is all about, it should be awesome. It will be just like Applebees, but more personal because it has the name of a real Denver street. Really, it has Marion right in the name! Also, the jukebox could use an update. It will have some hip new music, but I bet there will still be some old classics, like Bon Jovi and The Eagles. As a matter of fact, I look forward to watching the game at Nicolo's with some bros while Hotel California plays in the background, and then walking over to MST (Marion Street Tavern - get it?) at a commercial without missing any of the action, and still being able to sing the chorus to the same song with a drunken bachelorette party. Awesome!

Read the original post about Gabor's closing, along with 193 comments (as of 6 a.m. this morning), here.

And without Gabor's, we have a sudden opening on our list of Denver's ten best dive bars, which we'll publish here tomorrow. Any suggestions?

There is no better investment than a Texas Hill Country ranch. Data from the Texas A&M Real Estate Center for rural land in the Hill Country counties Bandera, Blanco, Kendall and Kerr reflects an inflation-adjusted 588% increase in the past 40 years, we have data for (1969-2009) which averages nearly 15% per year with values doubling every 6-7 years. With that interest rate, not including inflation, investing $150,000 would be worth over a million dollars of today's money 50 years later.What To Watch Out For When Selling Your Ranch Through A Real Estate Brokerage

I've written about the Native American legends and medicinal uses of Texas Hill Country wildflowers and also about the most prevalent of the flowers; this year I will swallow my pride as a UT grad and talk about the creation of the maroon bluebonnet some call aggie bonnets, as well as the other mutant colors whose birth has paved the way for bluebonnets to become a multi-million dollar domesticated bedding plant.

Gabor's is on 13th NOT Marion. Still the worst idea ever.

 Although it will be harder than you think to stay within your budget, the property itself and the prep work done to it before construction begins shouldn't be more than 30 percent of the total cost of the entire project. Here are some unexpected expenses that will inevitably be encountered during this process.

I hope you'll include The Satellite on your list tomorrow!

I like how there are so many comments about Cap Hill "character". Edgewater nowadays has way more authentic character than Cap Hill has had for many years. A bunch of East Coast transplant trust-funders in skinny jeans does not for authenticity make.

As someone that frequents the Providence Tavern, I can guarantee that Sam will create a place that will be successful, unique and ultimately welcomed by the neighborhood.
