Keep Westword Free

ICYMI: There's Nothing Funny About Being a Cartoonist in Colorado

In the March 24 edition of Westword, we published the winners of our fourth annual Comics Contest. For more comic relief, you can read "May Gal, the Zombie" and many of the other cartoon entries here.

Denver's gay community has lost a couple of its favorite spots recently, with the Barker Bar closing on Santa Fe Drive late last year and The Crown Social closing over this past weekend. And now another is about to shut is doors: Mark Antonation reports that The Eagle will close on April 2, after a couple of blow-out parties.

And speaking of blowouts: The Flathead Beacon, a weekly in Kalispell, Montana, owned by Maury Povich, of all people — did a big piece on favorite son Brock Osweiler, who didn’t play a single down in the Denver Broncos’ 2016 Super Bowl victory — but definitely left an impression on the Mile High City when he left for a big paycheck.

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

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.
