    Despite record snowfall in Denver for the month of February, contractors still managed to finish up a number of projects, some new restaurants - like Troy Guard's second Bubu in Lowry and the airy School House Kitchen in Arvada - and a few favorites getting updates or moving to new spots altogether .
