The end of the Lion's Den
Landmark Calgary restaurant on 17th avenue will not reopen
The Lion's Den restaurant on 17th avenue southeast is shutting its doors.
Located just across from the Stampede grounds, the restaurant was a popular spot for Calgarians for nearly 40 years.
Now, after being closed since June due to flood damage, the Lion's Den will close for good.
The Calgary Eyeopener's Kirk Heuser spoke to Enrico Festa, owner of The Lion's Den, about the end of an era.
