Cafe Society features Jared Jacang Maher's piece about mistaking a group of bears -- that would be members of the hirsute gay subculture, not the creatures who shit in the woods -- for a rugby team. No goal. In addition, read about the unexpectedly quick return of Nine75 and the planned expansion of SAME Café.
And Backbeat Online? Get the deets regarding the return of the Denver Message Board and dig into a Q&A with Rob Swire of Pendulum, one of the hotter bands in the U.K. right now. Just trying to keep you up to date. -- Michael Roberts

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.
