We enjoy exploring new eateries, and neighborhood bars are always intriguing even if a bit scary. For some time there has been a real dive at the corner of Broadway and Iliff in Denver. A while back it closed down and got boarded up. Then it came to life with some exterior painting and a complete redo of the interior, and is now known as Mike's Tavern. Turns out Mike from Motorcycle Pawn just across Broadway bought the place and fixed up. We decided to drop in a few days ago and it is a great corner bar where locals, bikers and non bikers alike, can hang out. Big screens for the sports fans, good beer on tap and decent bar food. As we chatted with Mike and some of the patrons, Lonesome Loser by the Little River Band came on the digital jukebox - hadn't heard the song for a long time, and had to think that Mike's Tavern is no longer a place for lonesome losers.
