Anthology Book Company in Loveland was slated to close forever in about three weeks. This was sad news, especially when tied to the fact that City News has closed.
Well, good news. Anthology will not be closing. They found a partner to keep it open.
A business called 3 Coffee, located in Milliken, will be doing business in the Anthology business.
The 3 Coffee business in Milliken is a coffee shop and a place to roast coffee.
Many in Loveland are very happy I think, to have the bookstore coffee shop stay in downtown Loveland (DoLo).
Anthology Book Co. is located at 422 East Fourth Street.
What are your thoughts on this?

Loveland Cactus Grille is up and running.
Here is a press release on Loveland newest Mexican restaurant. (Yes, I know there was on before but this one is back in DoLo.)
The Cactus Grille Opens in Downtown Loveland
April 17th, 2013
Loveland, CO- The Cactus Grille, has officially
opened in downtown Loveland, 119 E. Fourth Street.
Owners, Mike Severance, his daughter Chrissy French, and Bar-Manager, Geoff Fleming are excited to bring the Old Cactus back into downtown Loveland. The restaurant features a southwestern style menu along with many options of margaritas including the infamous “Wicked Margarita. The décor of the restaurant resembles a Mexican style village, and has plans of opening an outdoor patio on the east side of the building this summer. Severance is thrilled to be part of the exciting changes that have been occurring in downtown Loveland, and is pleased with the transformations. ”We’re Loveland people. We love downtown Loveland, and we’re excited to be back and be involved in the community we love.” Severance stated.
The Cactus Grille first opened in Downtown Loveland in April 1988 and was a local hot spot. In 2001, the Cactus Grille opened the second location in the Thompson Valley Towne Center in southwest Loveland. It remained in that location until it closed it doors in the end of 2008. In late March, The Cactus Grille once again opened their doors with excitement in the air. Severance said, “We just are overwhelmed with the support we are getting from the community,” French added, “Since I have been a little girl, I have always dreamed of owning not just a restaurant, but a Cactus Grille, and tonight was a dream come true.” French said of the soft opening March 28th, 2013.
Although many of the old favorites will be included on the menu the Cactus Grille will incorporate new dishes that are sure to please. Catering is also available.
Grand opening weekend celebrations are May 17th-19th.

Loveland has plenty of talented people.
Some of them met yesterday at Loveland Coffee Tree. The meeting was organized by Billie Colson of Independence Gallery is trying to rally local artists. One of the main purposes of this proposed group would be to pool funds for advertising purposes. Colson wants to advertise art happenings and events in Loveland.
The group is called Local Colors. It has a Facebook page.
The group seems to be leaning toward just visual arts to start. Also, at the onset, they will focus on downtown artists and galleries. This could change and expand if the group grows.
Colson wants to get things moving so a tri-fold brochure featuring those interested in being part of the group can be available for summer. This tri-fold would probably be updated quarterly.
Any visual artists who are in the downtown Loveland (I am still pushing to call it DoLo) should contact Billie Colson at the Independence Gallery’s new location at 233 East Fourth Street. Go to the Independence Gallery’s website or find them on Facebook.

Loveland businesses seem to be restless. In the past week or so, I have seen lots of them moving/relocating. That is a good thing. For the most part, they are moving or expanding because business is good.
Sugar Mill Productions in downtown Loveland is in this situation. They used to be know as a photography studio and salon. They are no longer a salon. And they are moving from an upstairs suite to a downstairs one near the corner of Fourth Street and Lincoln Avenue.
Being on the street level, and a few doors south of the Lincoln Gallery and other art outlets should be to their advantage.
The new space is not necessarily that much bigger than they had before but it does have a larger room for doing photo shoots. (Currently, it’s not as pink as the old studio was. )
Look for a grand re-opening in March.
