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

Upon reading the "go fast beer at mice" message spelled out on the Sloan Lake-area sign in the above photograph, I was confused. Immediately I imagined that it might be advertising a new instant-pick lottery game based on a popular smart phone application that allowed gamers to fling mugs of beer at animated mice.

The traffic light at which I was stopped gave me a little more time to consider an alternate meaning. Perhaps the station was sponsoring a person named "Bee Ratmice" in a sporting event where speed was essential. Then, with the joy of a burglar picking a lock, I cracked the code: "GO FAST BEER ATM ICE."

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.
