This week’s episode of Denverite Now is the conclusion of Colfax Week. You’re going to want to hear our group portrait of Colfax Avenue and our snappy wrap-up of the series.

Here’s how our host, Paul Karolyi, describes this episode:

1) Paul joined the Denverite team on Colfax this past Tuesday to interview residents and other passersby about their experiences on the iconic avenue. FYI: Some of the responses included here are explicit.

2) Dave Burdick, Andy Kenney and Ashley Dean have a roundtable discussion to conclude Colfax Week. Here’s a selection of the stories mentioned in the episode:

The “storage castle” changed East Colfax in 1926, and then never changed again

We’re pretty sure Playboy never said Colfax was the “longest, wickedest street in America” — but it printed something better

A night and a morning at Nob Hill Inn, the oldest dive bar on Colfax

Jewish pioneers built the miniature downtown near Mile High — and a legacy on Colfax
