Lingo the Drifter

When ex-football player and bar owner Sam Sugarman re-christened his bar "Sugie's" as the Satire Lounge, Sugie put in a tiny stage and hired a guy called Lingo the Drifter to take over the club and play there. Lingo, an ex-businessman from Chicago who had dropped out, grown a beard and lived out of the back of a pickup truck, did a folksy Burl Ives/Pete Seeger type show that clicked with the local crowd.

Nuisance Abatement Action at 7 Star Motel, 8400 East Colfax at Verbena Street. Hearing this Friday, December 15, 2017 at 9:00AM. On Monday, September 25, 2017 at 10:00AM the owners and operators of the 7 Star Motel, located at 8400 East Colfax Avenue at Verbena Street were served notice by the Denver Nuisance Abatement Division of the City Attorney's Office and the Denver Police Nuisance Abatement Detectives. The motel operation was later stopped under a court-ordered Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) due to the public nuisances caused by the operation of the motel. A public hearing in front of Denver Excise and License in regards to their motel license is scheduled this coming Friday, December 15, 2017 at 9:00AM at the Webb Building located at 201 West Colfax Ave., 2nd Floor in regards to continuing nuisances that effect the surrounding neighborhoods, it's residents and business owners, including drug sales and possession by tenants, and weapons charges and seizures. Members of The East Colfax Neighborhood Association (ECNA) after a thorough review of the motel operation, existing motel licenses in the area, meeting with the owner and manager, their attorney’s and residents and business owners in the immediate area have decided to oppose and protest the operation and/or any reissuance of a motel license for Ha Rim Corporation Inc. DBA 7 Star Motel, Located at 8400 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80220 object to any continued operation of the 7 Star Motel located at 8400 East Colfax Avenue due to continuous criminal activity taking place on the property, including drug dealing and use, prostitution, and weapons being discharged and possessed on the property. Neighborhood residents and businesses have continually notified the Denver Police, City Attorney’s Office, Excise and License Department and City Council in regards to the criminal activity at the motel which directly affects their quality of life. The operation of the 7 Star Motel has proven to be a drain on city and police resources and a public nuisance due to criminal activity at the property. It is not fair to other neighborhood businesses, residents and surrounding neighborhoods when police officers and other city staff are continually sent to the motel for the same issues over and over with no improvement to the mitigation of crime on the property. The motel owner and management are not at the motel and personally regulating activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which leads to more criminal activity occurring, there is a severe lack of supervision and accountability in the operations of the motel. We as a neighborhood do not believe there are any effective strategies the owners of the 7 Star Motel or the city could implement that would stop or curb the criminal activity and public nuisance the property creates. We respectfully request that the Department of Excise and License and City Attorney’s Office deny any continued operation and/or any reissuance of a motel license for Ha Rim Corporation Inc. DBA 7 Star Motel, Located at 8400 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80220 We as a community need to be present and testify in regards to the nuisances caused by this business and its operations and the effect it has on your quality of life in our neighborhood. If residents do not show up at the hearing in mass at the hearing , than most likely business will be back as normal for this nuisance establishment. We need you, the residents to step up and take part. This is probably the most important thing you could ever do for our community and start changing the East Colfax corridor in our neighborhood and community. This is important to YOU, your neighbors, your children and the community. If you can't testify please show up anyway. We need to fill the hearing and potential trial with 100's of residents so the E&L hearing officer and judge know we care and the impact this has on our community!
