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

Sketch has a limited menu, but as Jason Sheehan noted in his review, what Jesse Morreale and Sean Yontz (the subject of this week's Chef and Tell) are serving there is choice. Still, when the place opened in March, we couldn't resist suggesting that -- in addition to the exotic cheeses, meats, nuts and Amarena cherries and El Rey Chocolate -- Sketch offer a skewer of the day, featuring random food items on sale at the Big Lots right across First Avenue.

Sadly, the Big Lots Skewer suggestion is now off the table, because the Big Lots closed abruptly. Rumor has it that a Sunflower Market may go into the space -- which would greatly expand the possibilities for a daily skewer, but make it considerably less sketchy.

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.
