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

Contrary to popular belief, Mexico does not celebrate its independence day on Cinco de Mayo. Mexico's El Grito de Independencia is actually today, and a couple of places will be celebrating.

El Diablo, 101 Broadway, will offer a special "El Grito" menu all day, as well as late-night drink specials and $1 tacos after 11 p.m. Call 303-954-0324.

Mezcal, 3230 East Colfax Avenue, will host an El Grito Street Fair through Friday, September 16, with food and drink specials, live music and more. Call 303-322-5219 or go to www.mezcalcolorado.com for more info.

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.
