Casa Bonita, one of Colorado's most iconic destinations, is celebrating a half-century of sopapillas, cliff diving and mariachi music this week.

Yes, but: The exact date that Lakewood's legendary restaurant and entertainment venue turns 50 remains somewhat of a mystery.

Reality check: Whenever its birthday bash is, it will be nearly impossible to score a seat at the restaurant this week β€” or anytime soon.

The intrigue: It remains unclear when the restaurant will be open to general seating and do away with its exclusive, ticket-only system.
