Earlier today, we offered up $50 worth of free food and drinks at a Taste of Colorado to the four readers who could tell us, in five words or less, why they were deserving of the certificates. For those of you who showered us with love, sang our praises or told us we could be your dates, thank you, we're blushing.
We were thoroughly entertained by most of the responses. (As for the handful of readers concerned about potential digestive problems, we recommend preemptive Pepto. Works like a charm.) But alas, we had to choose. And here are our four favorites:
Year old twin girls teething
Earl canceled my trip east
Love spandex on fat bodies.
Will trade wife for food
The winners have been sent an e-mail detailing how to pick up their prizes. For those who played but didn't win, you can still sample the goods all weekend long at Civic Center Park. And keep reading tomorrow, in case we get our hands on a few more prizes.
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.
