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

We've learned a lot about fainting goats -- also known as stiff-legged goats and nervous goats, goats whose propensity for falling down have earned them their own international society -- since we heard that an outfit called The Fainting Goat has applied for a liquor license at 846 Broadway, just down the street from the Westword office. That's the spot formerly occupied by Moon Time, and the Minturn before that, and Basil before that, and a long, long time before that, by the Parlor.

And now, if all goes according to plan and the deal comes through, it will be the Fainting Goat. Which sounds like an ideal Westword hang out since, as one fainting goat expert explains, the animals can get "excited over being fed."

See for yourself after the jump.

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.
