News travelled quickly earlier this week about a kitchen fire that has temporarily put O'Malley's out of commission
The beloved steakhouse in Palmer Lake
, popular in-part for its grill-your-own-steak concept, has already seen a wave of community support.
Among that support, a loyal patron has started a GoFundMe page
to help owner Jeff Hulsmann reopen as soon as possible. The goal is a modest $2,500.
O'Malley's has stood for over three decades in the area, open daily year-round until 2 a.m., usually.
On the Indy
's last formal visit in 2016
, I commended the awesome staff for handling a loud Broncos game-day crowd with grace, as well as some great drink pricing. Not that I don't cook enough at home, but I recall enjoying the novelty of prepping my own food at a large hibachi-table-like setup, and enjoying my buffalo burger.
Here's hoping Hulsmann reopens quickly.
