Long-standing Denver Mexican restaurant, Lola Coastal Mexican has closed its doors forever to reopen as The Post Chicken & Beer. The restaurant began in 2002 on South Pearl Street and was relocated to the LoHi area in 2006 where it stood for a total of 15 years.

The owners of Lola, based in Boulder, additionally own Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar, Centro Mexican Kitchen and West End Tavern. The new restaurant, The Post Chicken & Beer, already has six additional locations in places like Boulder and Lafayette and will produce specialty "thigh fries", fried chicken sandwiches and chicken waffles, salads and sides and house-brewed beers.

President Joe Biden will visit Colorado Tuesday, marking his first presidential visit to the Centennial State. He is expected to land at Denver International Airport at 1:10 p.m. and will then venture to Golden to deliver comments at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

According to the White House, Biden's remarks will work to "underscore how the investments in his Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and Build Back Better Agenda will help tackle the climate crisis, modernize our infrastructure, and strengthen our country’s resilience while creating good-paying, union jobs and advancing environmental justice."

Denver City Council voted to extend a contract with Environmental Hazmat Services (EHS) Monday to assist the city with sweeps of homeless encampment sweeps.

The contract was extended through October 2023, with eleven council members approving the extension and two voting against it. The Wheat Ridge-based Environmental Hazmat Services was contracted with Denver in 2018 with EHS workers being involved with encampment sweeps, storing or disposing of tents, sleeping bags and other personal items and then clearing and cleaning the area.

The Denver Auto Show is returning to Denver Wednesday through Sunday in downtown Denver in the parking lot of Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park.

Rather than being indoors at the Colorado Convention Center, this year's show will be outside like it originally was from 1917 to 1919, according to Denver Auto Show CEO Tim Jackson. Additionally, Jackson stated that the show will feature cars, booths and various exhibits with electric vehicles possibly stealing the show due to Emission-free vehicle mandates kicking in in 2030.
