As Southern Californians we take for granted our In-N-Outs. It's only when we hear of our out-of-state neighbors going ape shit when one opens in their neck of the woods, with people sobbing as if they've just seen the Messiah Himself, that we take stock on how beloved our homegrown burger empire just is. It happened most recently in Texas, where the opening of one made traffic snarled for miles and other craziness.
Now, Colorado wants their own, and a Denver-city councilman (who is, of course, a former Californian) is spearheading efforts. Albus Brooks has told The Denver Post that having the company setting up shop in town is going to be part of his 2012 agenda. It would join another beloved OC institution–Wahoo's.
I, myself, am looking forward to not only more videos of people bursting to tears after eating a Double-Double (like this woman from Texas below), but perhaps also some hyperventilating, because, you know, the air is thin up there in Denver.
