We're taking a break, but it won't be for long -- after spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our families and friends, Westword's Show and Tell team will be back on the job early Thursday, December 26 with a focus on the past and the future of Denver's arts and cultural scene. In the meantime, go look at colored lights. Drink hot chocolate on frosty nights. Be kind to each other. Relax. Christmas can really be cool. See you on the flip side.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
