The Blog Shortcut, July 2 Edition

Westword's five blogs aren't just offering lip service in response to our nation's serious blog shortage. They're doing something about it.

Cafe Society highlights contributor Jessica Centers' experiences with Agwa, a new liquor that's made with cocaine -- sort of. Take a snort. Backbeat Online ponies up Last Night reviews of concerts starring Stevie Wonder and Th' Legendary Shack Shakers, plus a Q&A with Constantines lead singer Bryan Webb. Demver also features questions and answers -- with, in this case, New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, who talks at length with our own Joe Horton. And The Cat's Pajamas resurrects the tale of the Colorado Countess. Call it the royal treatment. -- Michael Roberts
