TheViewHousehas been a hit since it opened last March in the Ballpark neighborhood -- but it took a hit early this morning, when a man who'd attended a Zombie rock concert there fell from the top deck onto some wooden scaffolding fourteen or so feet below. Let this be a warning: If you dress as a mountaineer on Halloween, do not try to act like a mountaineer.

Channel 7 reported on the incident early this morning, and reported that the man had been transported to the hospital in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

We reached Brad Manske, director of operations at Lotus Concepts, owner of ViewHouse, and got more information: At 1 a.m. this morning, a reveler dressed as a mountaineer had climbed over the railing on the top deck at ViewHouse, then attempted to jump onto the roof of a nearby law firm. He missed, and landed on a wooden frame fourteen feet or so below.

"All our safety precautions are in place," Manske notes. "We take our guests' safety seriously."

Still, it's hard to guard against guests who take their costumes too seriously.

So a random Lamebook DWEEB posts some cookie-cutter snarky comment about another DWEEB doing stupid shit whilst under the influence? Must not lead a very fulfilling life, to say the least.

Heh, Josh, I'm guessing you don't know who I am. You must not read the Westword! That's cool.

Whaddya know...alcohol and stupidity combined, what could possibly happen? Can we start levying a 25% tax on alcohol too to help educate the public about the effects of alcohol like the politicians are trying to do with its competitor? Sounds like it's sorely needed.

ViewHouse attracts drunken morons like my porchlight attracts moths; it was only a matter of time.  They should really set up nets around the perimeter and cover every surface of the restaurant with foam padding.

So a LoDo drunk does something idiot on a deck and gets injured? Must have been a day ending in "y".
