Great news! The Colfax Museum, dedicated to Schuyler Colfax and the longest, wickedest (as in awesome) street in North America that bears his name, opens 11/18/2017! Join us 2:00-5:00pm on Saturday to celebrate the accomplishment, at 6109 E. Colfax Avenue in Denver.
Today a great mystery was solved. For years I had been trying to track down an old East Colfax motel called Charlie Chan Village. In my mind, I saw something mythical, like Grauman's Chinese Theater. The good news is Jennifer and Bonnie at the Aurora History Museum found something about it today! The (not so bad I guess) news is that it was a laundry service...
Black is the new Orange? I know Colfax Avenue is down in there somewhere...
You haven't lived until you've made Guido's Nickel Bar a part of your West Colfax Crawl!
All other crimes
The Royal Host Motel is still standing today at 930 E. Colfax Avenue, only today it's a Days Inn.
Ah Colfax, the more you change, the more you stay the same! What happens on Colfax has probably already happened on Colfax.
All other crimes
Drug & alcohol
I guess you could say I'm a Broncos Fan, but this view is what really gets me to the games!

The following came from Elevationists.org's list of 7 Things to Do While You're in Denver:
Jerry's Baack on the 'Fax, because Jerry Baack IS Colfax.
Come hell or high snowfall, the sound continuum calls. The Starjammer is locked and loaded, and ready to seek out new grooves and new vibrations!
After 14 years of working on this website on our own blood, sweat, tears and dollars, Anistacia and I feel like the time has come to "tap out" and pass the proverbial Colfax baton to the next runner.
The Sultan of Striptease Sid King, one-time proprietor of Sid King's Crazy Horse Bar on East Colfax Avenue, spent his post-club days working at his drive thru shoe & boot repair shop. How nice of one of the girls from back in the day to drop by for a quick high heel repair!
