#ColfaxStrong:
Support Your Favorite "Third Places"!
Local restaurants, bars and cafes--our favorite neighborhood "third places"--are really struggling right now. Thank you for supporting them with outdoor patio dining, indoor service with spacing, takeout and delivery. And avoid delivery apps if you can--they charge up to 30% of the price for every order--eliminating all profit for the restaurant to pay staff and keep their doors open.

Our restaurants have perfected the art of serving you safely. If a Labor Day backyard “distance dinner” or happy hour is in in your plans, or if you need quick lunches for kids learning from home, they’ll make it easy for you! Click here for a complete list of Mayfair BID restaurants.
Featured Businesses
Welcome Jil Schlisner!
Welcome, Moss Pink Flora & Botanicals! After 13 years in Park Hill, Denver native Jil Schlisner decided to join the Colfax evolution and move her neighborhood shop to 5140 E Colfax (at Forest Street). “I feel like this is a really happy medium—I get to meet new clients in the Mayfair area and continue working with long-time Park Hill customers,” she says. And her commute from home in Mayfair is only 2.5 minutes! The new shop is organized around a creative floral design center, surrounded by plants, cards, jewelry, and gifts. Stop by 2-6 p.m. on weekdays or 12-5p.m. Saturdays. Or, call for a personal appointment at 303.388.1666.
Time for Fall Planting
It’s time for fall planting! City Floral Garden Center (Colfax & Kearney) has everything you need--colorful Mums, peas in all their varieties, and leafy green vegetables.  Get 40% off in-stock fountains and statuary or 20% of select shrubs.
Curly Locks & Fall Fantasy Hair
Happy Anniversary to Carol Marshall and her talented stylists on seven beautiful years. Carol opened Pangaea Salon with the vision of serving a diverse clientele, focusing on teaching curly girls how to rock their curls. Because as she says, "At the end of the day, hair is hair. And we love all types!" Hair cuts start at $50. Schedule online.

Bus Rapid Transit Contractor Named
The Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) has selected Parsons Transportation group to complete a federal process and preliminary design for the Colfax Bus Rapid Transit project. “BRT on East Colfax is the largest transportation project the City and County of Denver has ever embarked upon. It will be transformational in how people move along this corridor and in our city and will give Denver critical experience to potentially replicate on other corridors to move more people, more efficiently,” says DOTI.
