Cafe Society has items aplenty today. Get the skinny about the new Cinebarre in Thornton, the reopening of Gelman's in Highland, a review of Brach's Candy Poppers by the Candy Girls, the continuing expansion of Jack and the Box franchises in Colorado, the culinary experiences of Ask a Mexican author Gustavo Arellano during his Colorado visit this week, and Westword's crowning of the Mile High Chef contest winner at the Menu Affair.
If your appetite for blogs still isn't sated, stop by Backbeat Online to learn about a Mercury Café benefit for Ralph DaFermo as shared by the Merc's owner, Marilyn Megenity. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated. -- 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.
