It's the most wonderful time of the year — especially if you're helping others and having fun at the same time. And that's what folks were doing Monday night at Retrograde, the bar tucked behind Frozen Matter that ranks as one of our ten best new bars of 2016. A tiki takeover transformed the place, raising spirits and donations for Toys for Tots. Photographer Brandon Marshall was there to catch all the tropical breezes.

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.
