Last year's Westword choice for Best New Band: The Dirty Few
Tom Murphy

Our thirtieth Best of Denver issue will bring a new cow to your newsstand in a little under two weeks. In the issue, you'll find several hundred of the best ways to spend time in our city, whether you're looking for fine art or cheap booze, whether you've got three days to kill or twenty minutes.

In addition to our suggestions, you'll also find in the Best of Denver the opinions of you, our readers, on several topics. There's a poll where you can participate in that part of the issue, and we're down to five semi-finalists, which, and we cannot stress this enough, were also selected via completely open public vote. Today is the last day to cast your vote.

Don't let those jokers who read Cafe Society have all the fun. We've listed the music-related categories below for your perusal, but you can also go straight to the poll to vote.
