Scion of the fabulous Bonnie Brae Tavern -- via the Denver Post. He was always there. Always. Never didn't see him there.
His parents started the place in 1934, and if you go in and look over the bar you will see a photo of it, sitting at University and Exposition. It is a lone building out in the middle of nowhere. Now of course it's in central Denver, and it has been a wonderful oasis of good pizza, nice folks, friendly service down through the years -- a great place to watch a Bronco game!
Hank Dire built on his parents' efforts and kept the place alive and well. I hope that his kids will continue the tradition for decades to come. Thank you, Hank!
