Comment wall

I love the tattered cover. It's one of the two main things I miss about Denver. (The other being sesame tofu from a restaurant in Lakewood named Szechuan.) I miss the old building but the new one has some character itself. Does anyone know if they took their old carpeting with them? I swear it looks exactly the same.

Shows how up I am on The Tattered Cover, I spent about 10 minutes looking on here and online trying to track down the address for the Cherry Creek location to add it...apparently it's been closed for almost two years and now I'm bummed because I loved that place growing up!

Now I just need to go see its new location!
