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

Along with her last review, of Fruition, last week outgoing Cafe critic Laura Shunk served up her list of "Denver spots I'll miss most." Colt & Gray and other bars in LoHi figured prominently.

And that list inspired this from Aceranchero:

I'm going to miss the fact that somewhere in our neighborhood was a like-minded confederate that I knew by name in print only and that perhaps somewhere, on some night, you might have been sitting next to me in a bar or at the next table enjoying what an interesting food town Denver, and LoHi specifically, has become. I guess I'll never know for sure. Best wishes...

What do you miss when you're not in Denver? Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation under Laura Shunk's goodbye list.

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.
