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

Last week Juliet Wittman interviewed Bob Stocker, who raises goats on El Regalo Ranch — goats whose meat often winds up at local farmers' markets and restaurants. That piece inspired our list of four places around town that serve goat — but some readers didn't appreciate the tip. Says Deb:

What happened to all our vegetarians?! Sick of all the meat recipes and unhealthy comfort foods loaded with dairy and fat in the restaurants opened by transplants over the past 5 yrs... gross.

For one answer to what happened to Denver's vegetarians, see our story on WaterCourse's vegan anniversary. When you want to eat a meat-free meal, where do you go?

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.
