If you're anything like us, you spent the weekend in a turkey-induced, All My Children-caliber coma, awaking only for the occasional chuckle at the Macy's Parade getting Rick Rolled (still funny). For a taste of what you missed by not going out on the town -- including the last in a series of body-art competitions -- cruise to westword.com/slideshow, and come back every Monday for snapshots from the Denver nightlife scene. -- Joe Tone
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.
