"The 2014 Denver Bucket List," Westword staff, January 13
Things to do in Denver when you're from California.
Loved the Denver Bucket List; it reminded me of why we love to live in Colorado — and I haven't done half of the things on the list. Can't wait to get started on the rest.
What the fuck does a bunch of tools at Westword know about what to do before you die? Hell, y'all still publish that racist fuck Ask a Mexican...
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is amazing. I miss Colorado so fucking bad!
Chipotle and Casa Bonita, really? No one from here eats there — we only take our out-of-town guests. Nasty!
A "meal" at every Mexican establishment in Denver. And Westword knows them all!

This is so obviously written by transplants. Denver Cruisers? What a joke. Let Coloradans write a real one. You people have no idea...

"Ten Best Dive Bars in Denver," Cafe Society, January 13
I was sorry to see the Hill-Top go, but Rocky Top Tavern looks like it will be a good neighborhood bar for northwest Denver.
The hipster ratio for most of these bars is far too high for a real dive. If there hasn't been a stabbing within the month, it's not a dive bar.
Is it just me, or do most of the bars on this list seem a little less divey and more trendy? I've been to way "divier" Denver bars than most of the ones on this list. Not sure who picked these, but you really need to get out a little more.
I love how the people pounding booze at these dives still look great/are in such good shape. Way to go, Colorado.
