Denver Drug and Liquor has been a neighborhood fixture on East Colfax Avenue, near the Capitol, for years. Besides pharmaceuticals, booze, and odds-and-ends, the business also sells a t-shirt with its business name on it; the t-shirt is popular with hipsters wanting to make an ironic fashion statement.
Which reminds me, I recently received this comment via email about my blog:
"I remember well my days on Capitol Hill. One night I was doing my usual drinking and smoking of weed, and the next morning I discovered that someone(s) had climbed my balcony and burglarized my apartment while I slept! They even stole an area rug. After that happened, I felt I had been officially welcomed to the neighborhood."
