Yesterday, we told you about an early morning triple shooting near Cold Crush, a hip-hop venue we named 2013's best new bar in Denver. Afterward, the opinions flowed about the venue and the neighborhood surrounding the 2700 block of Larimer, where the incident took place. Here's a comment from a fan of the venue who doesn't think what happened should keep people away.

James Beecher writes:

Great place to visit.... Did you all stop going to the movie theater after the mass shooting? Shit happens!!! People will do fucked up shit.... Don't let that keep you away from a fun bar, in an up-and-coming, thriving new neighborhood!

I've been by that place and it seemed pretty cool to me. I'd still go.

I will continue to visit Cold Crush whether for delicious lunch or even just for drinks. What a great vibe in a neat part of town not all that far from the ballpark, where there's no reason to feel threatened during regular business hours because of a single incident that happened on the corner outside well after hours!

Yeah fuck heads.... I get that, either way, you keyboard warriors get all afraid over it. Facts are facts. When your gentrified hipster areas are invaded by crime, you get scared and run. (This is the part where the "I'm in the MMA" Crap comes out en masse) ergo, this story.

Although I did get about 6k worth of guitar equipment stolen from my car literally 50 feet from there a year and a half ago. Seven minutes. Seven minutes I left it parked there. 4pm on a weekday. Second time my car has been broken in to here. Degenerates.

Nothing "hood" at all about Aurora, Newtown, CT, unincoporated JeffCo, Blacksburg, VA, Lancaster County, PA, or Casa Adobes, AZ.....amongst the pearliest of whitest places in the country, to be in fact.

There is no hood in Denver. Anyone who believes there is should travel a bit.

First of all, that's maybe the most ignorant comment I've ever read. ^ Secondly, denver "hood" is nothing compared to others around the country. People get shot everywhere, black, white, who cares. The "news" just sensationalizes everything and manipulates the story how they want.

Hilarious: a steampunk cosplayer little pussy telling people what's "ghetto". The best part of you dripped down your daddy's leg. Go put on another costume, pussy.
