Red Onion: "can't get it done".

Scott Degraff of Fun WorldWide. Blah Blah Blah.After more than 2 years of rhetoric (ie:Bull sh*t) and construction , Scott Degraff and Fun Worldwide failed to get Junk / Red Onion open for business. Their lease agreement for the historic building has been terminated by the ownership group.  Perhaps it was the economy, but we at AspenSpin feel it was an ill conceived notion from the start.  "Gapers cannot come to Aspen --- and just take over" cracked one local taste maker who refused to be indentified on the record.   "It's really not a surprise, it's been all talk" added another local knowledgeable of the sad situation.

hopefully this means the red onion won't become some euro-trash discotech that serves overpriced steaks anymore

Too bad actually, The Red Onion would've had great food, and would've served it late night. N9NE is one of the only new restaurants in town where you can expect great food and good and dependable service.

Aspen isnt Vegas, but maybe it would have been great. Now we'll never know.
