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

As Westword's September 18 issue is about to hit streets and screens, here's a chance to catch up on our top content from the previous week...

Cafe Society is the place to find Jason Sheehan's offering about Mysterious Fruit Tablets, which falls under the heading of "unusual things I've put in my mouth." Also on tap: developing news about Lime as well as Lala's and Prime 121 -- and bad news for lovers of the Aladdin Café.

The Cat's Pajamas delivered some more details about the IKEA coming to Denver and showed off images of hipsters at the Monolith Festival -- a major focus of Backbeat Online. In addition to Monolith live blogs and the like, Dave Herrera and his crew also presented a live review of Yellow Elephants and an updated roster of fresh concert announcements. AC/DC's on the way! Hell's bells!

And here in The Latest Word? Peruse our extensive coverage of Sarah Palin's Jeffco speech, a nostalgic look back at the days when the Colorado Rockies didn't bite, numerous pieces (like this one and this one and this one) about the Rocky Mountain News using the Twitter micro-blogging service to cover a child's funeral, and Alan Prendergast's exploration of the sex-'n'-drugs scandal that struck the U.S. Minerals Management Service. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. -- Michael Roberts

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.
