The second brick-and-mortar of popular sausage and hot dog shop Biker Jim's may open as soon as next weekend at 1601 Mayberry Drive in Highlands Ranch. Though faced with timing issues for the final liquor license approval and challenges with hiring staff, owner Jim Pittenger is hopeful soft opening will happen early next week, followed by an official start sometime next weekend.
For now, the space that formerly housed Bernie's Hot Dog Co. has received a makeover, swapping out the lime green and orange scheme for a more industrial feel. Though half the size of the original Larimer Street location, this new outpost is similar with the use of brick and concrete. Artist Matt O'Neill, who has done work at Tambien, ViewHouse, and Coors Field, painted the logo on the wall.
