But up until a few days ago, the Mile High City didn't have its own badge. The "Westword Badge" (hey, that's us!) experienced a soft launch late Wednesday night and it's officially on the books today. With this badge comes a local element to the app's game-like platform that so drives users to check-in often in an attempt to hit the top of the Foursquare leaderboard among their friends.
So, fellow Foursquare addicts: How do you earn this excellent (If we say so ourselves?) badge? Just check in at spots around Denver and it will pop up if you've checked in at places we dig. Here's the Westword on Foursquare profile to give you a head start.
