Gary Hart, John Elway and Stapleton International Airport. All three of those blasts from the past won awards in our Best of Denver issue back in 1988. So did Colfax Avenue, which won Best Neon Strip that year. And while the longest, wickedest street in America has changed a lot in the intervening years, Colfax has continued to light up the night. Last year, the venerable Twist & Shout won Best Store on Colfax -- again -- while the Sie FilmCenter next door won Best Movie Theater -- Programming. And that's just the start.
