Nine years ago ... trying to think of what the world was like nine years ago. Hmm ... let's see ... that would've been back before we documented our every movement, breath, thought and whereabouts on Facebook and Twitter, back when the notion of a Smartphone was still pretty foreign, and if you asked us, most likely meant that our cellphone could voice dial. My, how far we've come, eh?
More impressive: The thought that club night that started as a Monday night monthly would still be going strong after all these years. Kind of hard to believe, isn't it, especially with as much as styles and trends change. But it is.

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.
