Jelly packs in crowds on the weekend, when it seems that everyone living in a reasonable radius jams the front of the restaurant, sipping peppermint schnapps-laced cocoa and red beer while they wait for a table. It's proof that owners Christina Smith and Josh Epps knew what they were doing when they set out to give Denver a hip, creative breakfast joint where, once you get past the masses, the food is pretty good, too.

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.
