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

Last week our brunch expert, Lauren Monitz, visited Lala's Pizzeria & Wine Bar, which has teamed up with nearby Turin Bikes to offer a brunch special every Saturday in August, with a chance to win a bike that will be raffled off on August 29. Sounds like a good deal, readers agree, but they also warn that if you partake in the bottomless mimosas, you need to remember that drunk biking is no safer than drunk driving. Says Susan:

Are you people nuts? The only thing worse than a person getting behind the wheel with a bellyful of mimosas is a person getting on a bike and weaving through weekend traffic. If she doesn't get in an accident, she'll cause one. 

Did you know you could get a ticket for riding drunk? Have you gotten one? Spill the details below.

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.
