Best of the Blogs, September 17 edition
Jason Sheehan ate these -- and lived to tell the tale.
As Westword's September 18 issue is about to hit streets and screens, here's a chance to catch up on our top content from the previous week...
Cafe Society is the place to find Jason Sheehan's offering about Mysterious Fruit Tablets, which falls under the heading of "unusual things I've put in my mouth." Also on tap: developing news about Lime as well as Lala's and Prime 121 -- and bad news for lovers of the Aladdin Café.
The Cat's Pajamas delivered some more details about the IKEA coming to Denver and showed off images of hipsters at the Monolith Festival -- a major focus of Backbeat Online. In addition to Monolith live blogs and the like, Dave Herrera and his crew also presented a live review of Yellow Elephants and an updated roster of fresh concert announcements. AC/DC's on the way! Hell's bells!
And here in The Latest Word? Peruse our extensive coverage of Sarah Palin's Jeffco speech, a nostalgic look back at the days when the Colorado Rockies didn't bite, numerous pieces (like this one and this one and this one) about the Rocky Mountain News using the Twitter micro-blogging service to cover a child's funeral, and Alan Prendergast's exploration of the sex-'n'-drugs scandal that struck the U.S. Minerals Management Service. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. -- Michael Roberts
