KJ's Coffee Bar, the Whittier neighborhood watering hole at 1710 East 25th Avenue that Kenny and Kristin Johnson opened last year, adds music to the mix tonight, when DJ LHD and friends start spinning at 7 p.m. But don't come to KJ's empty-handed: It's running a food drive to benefit Food Bank of the Rockies, and accepting non-perishable food items as donations through November 14.
KJ's plans to offer music every Friday from here on out; it's looking for musicians and bands to add to the line-up. To offer up your talents, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
