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

As the blogs turn.

The Cat's Pajamas brings us word of an Equilibrium Clothing sale, plus another of Susan Froyd's Talking Shop offerings -- this one focused on weird DNC-related items like a needle-felting kit to create the Obama seen here. Nothing's more patriotic than a likeness of a Democratic presidential nominee that seems to have been made out of dryer lint.

In Cafe Society, the Candy Girls gobble deviled eggs and Jonathan Shikes samples beers brewed for the DNC. It's an excuse to imbibe liberally.

Demver points out six DNC events worth watching. And Backbeat Online updates its DNC cheat sheet and offers up Eric Eyl's Mile High Makeout, which gives tips on how to expose yourself. Step one: Buy a raincoat. -- 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.
