Okay, it's five o'clock. Boss is gone. Time to blow this taco stand, y'all. Before you get all sorts of wild and crazy doing whatever it is you decide to do this weekend in Denver after dark (we've got a few ideas if you're looking for tips), take a mental note of this hashtag: #westwordweekend. Or better yet, write it on your hand, and then when you're out and about this weekend and look down, half twisted and you see the smudge on your paw where legible words used to be, remember to hit up Instagram with #westwordweekend and share your photos. We want to see what your weekend looks like. And then on Monday morning, we'll pick the best pics and post them here. In the meantime, have a great weekend. Be sure to check back in for overnight show reviews.
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.
