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

What you might have missed this week...

Jason Sheehan asks readers to chime in on the best last place to take your significant other.  Do you have a better restaurant to suggest for a break-up date?

The team at Duo, rated Westword's best New American Restaurant 2009, will be opening Olivea this weekend..

Would your friends and co-workers ever forgive you if you passed up the chance to score free booze and chocolate?  Win one of 20 happy hours at Vesta Dipping Grill or a year of chocolate.

Amidst confusion surrounding swine flu, some diners are avoiding pork while others can't think of a better time to chow down, perhaps while enjoying a bacon martini.  Incidentally, dining on swine does not a flu victim make.

April showered us with many new restaurants and ushered out a few, too.

Last month, we also lost Al Marcove, restaurateur, caterer -- and mentor to many.

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.
