Content? We can help you out when it comes to both meanings of the word...

Cafe Society leads with Jason Sheehan's guide to the care and feeding of political volunteers. That's followed by the evaporation of one 8 Rivers, a recommendation about where to find green chile like Grandma used to make, the transition from Old Guy to Persian Gourmet, and news about an early Christmas for beer drinkers. We propose a holiday toast.

There's a crowd in Backbeat Online, too. Click over to get a sneak peek of City Hall, the latest nightspot from Regas Christou, memories of U2's "Under a Blood Red Sky" concert at Red Rocks, the announcement of a panel discussion about the evolution of the rock concert, a video in which the Flobots discuss faith and politics, and Eric Eyl's latest Mile High Makeout session. He's ready if you are. -- 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.
