What’s It Time For?

Well, I’ve been avoiding blogging about this for a while now but a kind reader sent in a great photo. The reader writes:
“This sign is on 11th St – kinda freaks me out, but not sure why.”

So here goes: 11th Street between Wonderland and Red Rocks is home to a very curious storefront. I think you can tell from the photo but it reads “Up You Might Race…It’s Time”. I gulp every time I walk past it. So a few questions naturally come to mind, first and foremost – what the hell is this? Is this group active or is it a blast from the past? I think I’ve seen one person walk through a side door once. It always seems to be closed. So is this for real? Does it make anyone else a little uncomfortable when they walk by. In all honesty, I think it is the coolest sign in town…if it doesn’t mean anything. But if it is for real, well for once, I don’t know what to say.
