While Gretchen Kurtz took the week off, Juliet Wittman interviewed Bob Stocker, who raises goats on El Regalo Ranch. Stocker sells his meat at both local farmers' markets and to some area restaurants, which inspired us to serve up a list of four places where you can get your goat in Denver, including the very popular Work & Class. But re42scott wasn't impressed:

Why do you only write about hipster, foodie places within a 15-minute drive of the Westword offices?

And never mind how long it takes to park after you leave the Westword office! The day before our piece ran on El Regalo Ranch — which is nowhere near the office — Mark Antonation visited Funny Plus in Aurora, for Korean fried chicken that's definitely off the beaten path. Still, we'd like to know:  What restaurants should we be writing about? What parts of town need more coverage?

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.
