The Cherry Cricket restaurant has been in Cherry Creek for 72 years.  At one point it was owned by Governor John Hickenlooper.  Besides serving famous burgers it also has features that certainly qualify it for a Wacky Denver listing: In the bar area, on the ceiling is a replica of a hockey rink.  Around the edges of the rink you’ll find celebrity autographs from visitors. Another notable part of the Cricket is the wall of aquariums.  After a kitchen fire they had to close for some months.  Upon reopening, they held a funeral for the fish that had died in the fire/closing.  Editor’s note: Besides respecting their fish, they also respect their employees-paying them while the restaurant was closed for repair.
