The Cat's Pajamas parses the Fabric Lab sign that reads "BUY LOCAL BITCHES!" and investigates the inexplicable popularity of wearing winter hats in the summer heat. Would you like your brain broiled or poached? Demver marks the one-month point before the start of the Democratic National Convention with "Let's Get This Party Started," a new series celebrating seminal spots in our fair city. First up: Confluence Park. Other items examine the possibility that Elitch Tower could be used for security purposes during the DNC and chronicle a tour of Mile High stadium with Howard Dean. What a scream. Cafe Society climbs into the LoDo's Bar & Grill patio and gets drunk and disorderly in Hell's Kitchen. And Backbeat Online quizzes Electric Skychurch's James Lumb and reviews shows starring The Palsies and Russian Circles. That's one way to round 'em up. -- 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.
