Celebrate early with these selections from Westword's other blogs.
In Cafe Society, restaurant reviewer Jason Sheehan visits Hell's Kitchen. Hot stuff. Demver includes a Q&A with senatorial candidate Mark Udall and Teague Bohlen's takedown of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, who's a supporter of intelligent design. Wise up. Backbeat Online delivers reviews of new recordings by the Offspring and Vanessa Hudgens, of High School Musical fame. It's Disney-tastic! And The Cat's Pajama's examines American Girl. Get your mind out of the gutter. -- 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.
