- A local pizza restaurant will soon be relocating after serving slices in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood for 15 years. Sexy Pizza has announced their store on the 11th and Ogden will close at the end of July. According to the owners, they don’t want to leave but their lease wasn’t renewed after speaking up against what they call unwelcoming landscaping out front. Sexy Pizza will keep cooking in a ghost kitchen in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, and they are still looking for another location to lease Downtown. (Patch)
- As rising temperatures, long-term drought, and less dependable snowpack impact the region, Denver Water is working on cutting its carbon footprint. The utility is preparing for a future with a less consistent water supply for its customers, through innovations including greater efficiency, One Water, and new storage projects, such as the Gross Reservoir expansion..

From our sponsor:
Are you a Denver resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.
Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called Masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.
Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:
- Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
- Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
To learn more, visit Masterworks.io, where Denver Daily readers can skip the waitlist.
