Dive in to Denver's Best Dive Bars this week

Drew Bixby, Westword Drunk of the Week columnist, has dedicated countless hours -- and his liver -- to researching the town's true dives.The result is a new book, Denver's Best Dive Bars: Drinking & Diving in the Mile High City, which will be toasted at a series of events this week.

First up: Bixby will be talking about his book at 10 p.m. tonight during Open Mic Comedy at the Squire, a bar at 1800 East Colfax Avenue that definitely qualifies as one of the town's classic dives. On Thursday, he'll be at another -- Jerry Feld's Club 404, at 404 Broadway -- for an official launch party that kicks off at 8 p.m.

The action moves to Sweet Action, 52 Broadway, for a "dive-flavored ice cream social" at 5:30 p.m. November 6. Then it wraps up on Saturday, November 7, with a downtown dive crawl that starts at 8 p.m. at El Chapultepec, 1962 Market Street, a bar so good you may never want to leave.
