Someone asked "what could they do to ensure their safety in downtown Denver?" DUH!! Don't be in LoDo at 2:30 am with a bunch of drunks and thugs!!!Technically, Cold Crush is in the Ballpark neighborhood -- our Best New Restaurant Neighborhood in the Best of Denver 2014 -- on the edge verging into RiNo.
But Dave Barnes has a blanket list of late-night spots to avoid:
Why anyone is out and about at 0230 is beyond me.What Denver neighborhoods do you avoid -- and at what hours? Is there a restaurant you won't go to because of the area where it's located?
Stay home and be in bed at that hour and you will not be participating in any shootings
