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

We enjoy reading your comments here on Cafe Society, soaking up the compliments, laughing off the insults and pondering the insights.

Sometimes, though, one comment stands out, and we like to acknowledge its specialness with a little extra love.

This week, the honor goes to the filthy implication left by "Great Writing" on my review of Pho Duy:

The true Laura Shunk comes out. I guess she swallows everything. "but after I inhaled one six-inch roll, along with plenty of the sweet, nutty sauce"

Oh, the blurry line between sex and food.

Given that I'm a hired mouth, it's my job to swallow. Happily, though, my duties don't extend beyond the gastronomic realm.

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.
