Erasing the Onion
Dear Editor:My third-grade class went to the Red Onion for lunch because it’s part of Aspen history. I never even heard of it. I thought that the Red Onion was only 20 years old, then I found out the Red Onion is 125 years old. I thought the bullet hole was really cool. It is like 100 years old, they said.I forgot to tell you that I think it is an amazing restaurant! Next year’s third-grade class will not get to see the Red Onion if they close. They’re not going to know the Red Onion. It’s like they’re erasing the Red Onion.Jorge EsparzaThird-grader, Aspen Elementary SchoolAspen
