Last Night: A Dana Cain toy party at the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys

Seems like a day doesn't go by when I'm not writing something about Dana Cain, my favorite event coordinator, art collector, sci-fi and pop-culture geek, '60s freak and frivolous idea machine. It's as if she microchipped my brain one night as I lay sleeping and can read on her computer my deepest likes and dislikes. And then she twists the delicious knife and comes up with yet another event that speaks to me as if it were created for my sole pleasure. Yeah, but that's okay. A cultural soulmate like this I can live with.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
