Thanks for getting Tasty with us! Tasty Colfax Recap

The 10th annual Tasty Colfax showed that the ever increasing restaurant options in Bluebird are a hit, with the event selling out! The commemorative spork was both functional and popular as event goers visited over 22 different businesses.

In addition to sampling some of Bluebird’s finest restaurants and bars, attendees also enjoyed live music and art along the way.

As a participant put it, “I live just around the corner. I don’t have money to dine out a lot, but with Tasty I got to try lots of restaurants and now know where I want to come out for dinner!”

Thanks to Collaborative Events for pulling off a great 10th Annual Tasty and to everyone who came out. Huge thanks to the restaurants, businesses, and volunteers that supported the event! You all truly make the Bluebird special.

Check out some photos from the event below. Professional photos to come and will be posted on our website and Facebook page!

New Barbecue Joint Will Take Over Solera Space

Chef Goose Sorensen is ending his sixteen-year run with Solera at the end of March, but he doesn’t regret the move. “I couldn’t be more thrilled,” he told us earlier this week when we talked to him about the closure. “I didn’t want to be fifty years old and still slinging calamari on East Colfax.” He’s got plans to do some work on his family’s property in Wyoming and is looking forward to spending more time in the mountains.

But he’s not cutting all ties to the building at 5410 East Colfax Avenue, where Solera currently resides. Sorensen owns the property and is leasing the space to Christopher Nicki, who will open Hank’s Texas Barbecue later this summer.

Colfax Museum Now Open

If you ever wished there was a museum dedicated to Colfax, wish no longer. Jonny Barber, long-time Colfax lover and historian, opened the Colfax Museum in November 2017. Right now the museum is housed inside Ed Moore’s Florist at 6101 East Colfax Ave. Barber hopes to eventually move to a bigger location with an outdoor space to showcase some the street’s famous neon signs.
