I would LOVE an In N Out in Denver! Also I think Denver needs a Trader Joes. I don't understand why there isn't one yet in Colorado at all.
I know there is a sprinkles coming to Denver and that's from LA.

Actually, there are a lot of things that started outside of Colorado that I like. What I get really sick of and rebel against is everybody wanting to make Colorado LIKE EVERYPLACE ELSE! Colorado is unique, spectacular, and beautiful in its own right--but in everything from food to suburban sprawl to hideous resorts, people try to turn it in to something else. And, no, that doesn't just happen in Colorado--it's happening in a lot of places and that's a tragedy. All that stuff isn't melding in to Colorado--it's trampling it.

By the way, here's a list of some things that Colorado (food-wise) produces the best of. Read the list and see what I mean about what's happening to the state:

Rocky Ford cantaloupes and watermelons. Long considered some of the best in the country. Production only a shadow of its former level because Front Range cities (to irrigate those bluegrass lawns, you know) have purchased most of the water rights in that part of the Arkansas Valley and dried the farms up.

Western Slope peaches, cherries, and apples. Again, some of the best. Rural sprawl has decimated the orchard acreage. Vineyards chewed up some more.

San Luis Valley potatoes. Some of the best in the U.S. Still big production there, but Front Range cities would love to get their hands on the water.

Colorado beef. Best in the country. But, more and more ranches are being sold for development, and those Front Range residents crowding into formerly rural areas don't like the smell of the feedlots, or having a packing plant in their town.

Sugar beets. Colorado used to be one of the largest sugar producers in the country. Cheap imports and urban sprawl have pretty much killed that. See how many closed down sugar plants there are across the state.

Not many years ago, Colorado actually could pretty much feed itself (and a lot more) with high quality ag products. In a few years, when suburban Coloradans can't afford to buy food transported in from somewhere else anymore, let 'em go out and graze on their Kentucky bluegrass lawns (also a non-native "transplant").

Gotta love the vineyards. I think it's a relatively good trade off...vineyards/wine for a few acres of fruit/produce. It's certainly better than paving it over with housing developments.
