Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Session Kitchen, the restaurant that the Breckenridge-Wynkoop group opened last fall in the former home of Izakaya Den. Lori Midson talked to Caitlin Mandigo of City Bakery about what it takes to bake bread for a living -- and at altitude -- for Chef and Tell. And Mark Antonation's travels up Federal Boulevard took him to Nick's Diner, for a filling breakfast.

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.
