It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights! Are you excited? We are. Gosh, we are. We've been breathlessly awaiting this day for what seems like forever. But then, we're nerds like that. You know what today is, right? Why, it's the day that the new Muppets movie hits theaters, of course. We're bananas about the Muppets -- so bananas, in fact, that we even ran down The Muppet Show's Top 10 musical guests. Elton John, Dizzy Gillespie, Debbie Harry. There were some choice cameos. See who else made the list.
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.
