Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Young Cherry Creek restaurant Phat Thai offered a strong start to Labor Day weekend. Upper-body strong, that is. Organizers channeled muscle and mettle with a female arm-wrestling competition that featured members of the Denver Derby Dolls and the public pushing up their sleeves and pitching in to raise funds for Big City Mountaineers, a youth-mentoring program that embraces the outdoors. Continue through for photos, taken by Jim Wills, of the night's strongest grips and most strained faces.

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.
