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

We're out early for the Fourth of July weekend, but check below to make sure you didn't miss any of the good stuff this week.  Enjoy your sparklers.

Floods and fire temporarily shutter two local barbecue joints.

Where to find the best cart lunch?  Readers weigh in.

Restaurant roll call for June: opened and closed.

Pete Marczyk shares recipes for fried chicken two ways and his mom's famous potato salad.

Jason Sheehan signs copies of Cooking Dirty and turns out not to be as tall, tattooed or black as fans thought.

Jason also found something to irritate him more than the word "gastropub."  Dinerant, anyone?

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.
