Blog, blog, blog.

Demver pits Barack Obama against the Denver Broncos and debuts an extended Q&A with Ralph Nader, who's a presidential candidate again in 2008. It could be his year! Meanwhile, Backbeat Online offers up a live review of To Be Eaten and Dead Child. They're two great things that go great together.

The Cat's Pajamas welcomes you to a grand opening bash for the first Silver Jeans store and previews the Fashion on the Fringe event slated for August 20. And Cafe Society looks over Gaetano's new patio and takes a swig of the first legal bourbon made in Colorado. Presumably the first illegal bourbon was guzzled long ago. -- 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.
