The term “legendary” is overused these days. But the Cherry Cricket lives up to the lofty classification and the revered reputation it holds as a bastion of classic neighborhood bar culture. Mary Zimmerman opened the original Cherry Cricket as “Mary Zimmerman’s Bar” in 1945. The bar was actually the living room of her home, which sat where the Sears Auto Center is today. Her customers were mainly garbage truck drivers working at the Denver trash dump, now buried beneath the Cherry Creek Mall site. (Yep, this was one of Denver’s first successful “recycling” endeavors.)
