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

Watch Karl Allis, restaurant manager at Atomic Cowboy and Fat Sully's and an occasional on-air personality at KKFN (his dream is to have a show called "The Hungus Amongus"), takes a shot at winning a million bucks on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, which airs at 9:30 a.m. today on KMGH/Channel 8.

Allis's three friends: his father, Edward Allis; Dave Plati (associate athletic director for the University of Colorado); and Joe Mills (a library shelver in Denver). But Allis seems well-prepared to win on his own: He started a trivia night five years ago at Atomic Cowboy called "Atomic Trivia," and has written thousands of questions. That game has just one rule: When you win, you have to do a victory lap around the bar.

Here's hoping Allis gets to do a victory lap around Millionaire host Meredith Viera today.

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.
