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

I'm late! I'm late! For some very important blogs!

Cafe Society gets in the DNC mood with some naughty cupcakes. Yummy. Meanwhile, The Cat's Pajamas touts a Belleville fall fashion preview and a sale at Frolic boutique, and readies viewers for Shear Genius' final cut. Which I've heard is always the deepest.

Backbeat Online updates its DNC cheat sheet, teases an upcoming Metallica gig, and joins Rachel Pollard as she takes another walk on Fascination Street, an especially Cure-centric route. And Demver catches wind of Nancy Pelosi protesters, tracks fifty unmarked Denver Police vans ready for DNC misbehavers, and prices some convention-week rentals on Craigslist. Hope you late planners have a wallet the size of a yacht. -- 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.
