Capitol Hill post office reopens Saturday. Refreshments will be served.

And a postal celebrity will be on hand.

Some things you just can’t send through the internet, so it might be helpful to know that the Capitol Hill Post Office on Marion Street near Colfax is reopening Saturday after a significant hiatus.

It was closed for repairs after a roof leak in September, but it’s back for all your snail mail needs starting at 9:30 a.m. (It’s actually way faster than a snail and it’s incredible that you can send something pretty much anywhere in a day or two.)

You probably knew this, but Denver has a postmaster — Lora McLucas — who will be on hand to give her stamp of approval. And you can consume refreshments while you mail stuff.

What a time to be alive in Cap Hill.
