Every time I write about a restaurant opening in downtown Denver, inevitably a comment or two (or ten) is posted about how “dangerous” the area is.

But then, no restaurants are open there at that hour anyway.

The “danger” many are talking about is directly related to the homeless population, which has become more visible since the pandemic. I’ve had plenty of interactions with people on the streets while out and about; I’m happy to hand an extra cigarette to anyone who asks, or spare some change or even a couple of bucks if I have the cash on hand….
