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

Some sage advice overheard at Moontime:

"These girls wear $500 shoes and $300 bags into a bar and then get mad when some guy spills a beer on them. I tell them, "Then don't wear $800 worth of accessories into a bar.'"

The Cat's Pajamas couldn't agree more. Because if she'd spent $880 on this pair of Givenchy boots she covets, she sure as hell wouldn't wear them into any nightclub in LoDo. Heck, she won't even wear her classic Frye motorcycle boots there. No, those are saved for safe places, like Bar Bar. You know it may be a little sticky, but there is a much lower percentage of drunk assholes wielding beer bottles and overflowing cocktail glasses.

Then again, if Cat somehow lost her mind and spent $880 on a pair of boots — or even the $528 for them at Bluefly.com — she probably wouldn't wear them anywhere. She'd build a shrine and keep them encased in a temperature-controlled, hermetically sealed box.

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.
