Today in Cafe Society: • Amnesia wins the Mix Master Bartender contest, appropriately enough. • Hosea Rosenberg hosts Colorado harvest dinner at Jax Boulder. • Chef and Tell: Paul Reilly of Encore. • Our Weekly Bread: Cafe Options. • Under Fire: Sugar and spice.
Today in The Latest Word: • Mario Solis-Marich to stop "boof"-ing the CU Buffs. • Jane Norton's introduction not too mavericky. • Denver's five most reviled (alleged!) criminals of 2009. • Jared Polis says there's no defense for the Defense of Marriage Act. • More tweetup do-gooders party for a cause. And it doesn't have anything to do with Kanye West or Taylor Swift.
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.
