After more than three decades of serving BBQ at 2000 Arapahoe Ave., the iconic Daddy Bruce's Bar-B-Que is entering its final week of business. Owner Bruce Randolph Jr. told the Daily Camera that he sold the property to Rockrimmon Real Estate because business was just too slow. "There was an accumulation of bills and no income coming in. You could sit here and let them turn the lights out on you, or you got to make a decision." Randolph's recipe for restaurant longevity: strong faith, good food, a solid location, and paying taxes on time. Word.
