Colfax Avenue on South Park

I heard a story about a police officer from another state who came to Denver for extra training. As the story goes, the first thing he wanted to do was to go see the infamous Colfax Ave. Not the Denver Mint, or any of it's other attractions, but instead... Colfax! As he explained it, it was all the South Park references that got him so curious. . .

In the ninth season episode "Bloody Mary," one of Randy Marsh's Alcoholics Anonymous classmates exclaims "No more blowing guys on Colfax Avenue for a pint of vodka for this cowboy!"

The "Casa Bonita" episode of South Park features a visit to Casa Bonita, a Mexican-themed restaurant and entertainment complex located on West Colfax in Northeast Lakewood.

In the South Park episode "My Future Self n' Me", a secretive business is shown to be located at 3451 Colfax Avenue; although this address seems to be featured prominently in the episode, in reality, nothing unusual appears to be at that address on either West or East Colfax.

In the "Erection Day" episode of South Park, Jimmy tries to buy a hooker at Colfax Point, a reference to sections of the avenue noted for prostitution.
