Well this is an oldie but goodie! The Cherry Cricket has been around for a LONG time. Those of us who grew up in Denver will remember “The Cricket”, is what what old timers call the “Cherry Creek Cricket” because there was a “Cricket on the Hill” in Capitol Hill. I remember going to the Cricket back before it became trendy. It was simply a bar that severed burgers. The bar was in the middle of the room, with an old black/sparkle popcorn ceiling and a pool table in the back room.
At that time the place was usually fairly empty, with a blue collar feel. Around 5:00 the crew from the Sears car shop would arrive for their after work drinks/burgers. Remember getting your tires rotated etc. at the Sears car shop???
Now it’s a whole different vibe. Great burgers, hot green chili and trendy in a way you’d have never imagined “back in the day”.
Get there early, that place fills up!
Summer is finally here!!!
