To bing or not to bing: That is the question.

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

Looking for the best place to rock out in Denver? You don't say. So are we. What a coincidence. Luckily, this morning we happened upon this helpful bing.com billboard, which promises to help make our daunting quest infinitely easier. The hunt, it seems, at least according to Microsoft's flagship search engine, has been narrowed down to one of two places.

Oddly, however, when we "bing & decide," as the tagline suggests, neither of those places are mentioned (perhaps because as anyone who lives here can tell you, comparing the hi-dive and Beta is like comparing apples and astronauts). The top item in our search, as you can see from the screen shot below, is a link to a Latest Word blog post about this fishwrap's Best of Denver Winners from...wait for it ...1995.

(In all fairness, the same search entered on the other ballyhooed search engine didn't render results that were any more helpful.)

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.
