Bar LouieRestaurants is partnering with shelters around town to provide a meal for those in need. A full meal is being served from on Thursday. Visit www.barlouieamerica.com for more information and a list of locations.
The Estes Park Community Thanksgiving is a free meal hosted by the family that once owned Notchtop Bakery and Cafe. It takes place from at the Mountain ViewBibleFellowshipChurch at Colorado 7 and Peakview Drive. Call 970-586-2689 for more info.
The Old Blinking Light (OBL) in Highlands Ranch is cooking for a cause with its "Everything But the Turkey" event that benefits the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado.

The sides all have a Southwestern flair, and the complete menu is available at www.oldblinkinglight.com or by calling 303-346-9797.
Rosa Linda's Mexican Café, 2005 West 33rd Avenue, is providing a free Thanksgiving meal to the needy. They have been doing this for 24 years and have made more than 25,000 meals. Volunteers are always needed, and if you know someone who could use a hand on this Thanksgiving, call 303-455-0608 or email the owners at firstname.lastname@example.org. -- Tyler Nemkov
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.
