We're no foodies here at Backbeat. We can't even pretend to be well enough to carry on an semi-intelligent conversation with our Cafe Society co-horts. Despite the fact that we're still what you would call "husky," as mom once used to so delicately put it, we have most unsophisticated palate of anyone you're ever likely to me. Fact is, we have the culinary acumen of a first grader.
That said, while the prospect of seeing Bop Skizzum -- slated to perform at our Dish event next Wednesday, September 22 -- sounds positively appealing, the tickets we've been given by the brass will be utterly wasted on us simpletons. So we're putting the five pairs we have up for grabs. If you and a guest would like to be our guest, tell us in five words below why we should pick you (be sure to leave your actual email), and we'll pick five winners on Tuesday. Bon appetit!
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.
