Today, the Westword.com blog universe revolves around this past weekend's Monolith Festival, with live blogs from day one of the Red Rocks spectacular, followed logically by day two. As a bonus, there are day one and day two Monolith photo roundups, too.
For a change of pace, visit Cafe Society, which goes from the potentially sublime -- talk of a new tenant for Mel's vacant Sixth Avenue space -- to a Milking It review of Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp. It's crunch time, baby. -- 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.
