The “South Park” creators may have fulfilled their promise of buying Colorado institution Casa Bonita.
In a live interview this morning with Colo. Gov. Jared Polis, Matt Stone and Trey Parker announced they will be buying Casa Bonita, in a matter of months, if their plan goes accordingly.
“As of about an hour ago,” Stone started, “so I have to qualify this, pending bankruptcy proceedings (…) we’ve come to an agreement with the owner, and we bought it.”
“We’re excited to work with everybody and make it the place we all want to make it,” Parker added.
At the end of July, Stone and Parker had announced that they wanted to purchase the beleaguered Lakewood restaurant and entertainment venue. They said they will partner with yet-to-be-announced Colorado-based restaurateurs to do so.
“The one area that we would all love to see an upgrade — and I think I speak on behalf of everybody who patronizes Casa Bonita — is the food could be a little better,” Polis said.
“I think it could be a little more than a little better,” Stone clarified.
Casa Bonita has been closed to diners since March of 2020, and this spring, its owners filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
