Rabbit redux

Playboy magazine has declared the UW-Madison our nation's top party school, and you can read my thoughts about this at
Bon appetit

It is time once again to read all of (okay, some of) the latest local food news in my food news column, which appears every month in Isthmus.

All aboard

I'm an incurable transit geek. I love trains, cable cars, streetcars, els, subways, funiculars, ferries, monorails and the Morgantown, W.Va. PRT.

So from the moment I saw New York's Roosevelt Island tram in the Spider-Man film, I wanted to ride it.

I still want to ride it. But I hope they get the bugs worked out.

WGL @ Shamrock tomorrow

Time once more to hear the honkytonk music of the World's Greatest Lovers at the Shamrock Bar. The show is tomorrow, 4/20 (dude) at 10 pm. There is no cover. The Shamrock is at 117 W. Main St. in downtown Madison.

Call it blog anxiety. I have so much to do, and I look at my blog, which I haven't been updating as often or as generously as I'd like lately, and I just feel anxious. Anxious is not good. Anxious bad.

Promise to blog more. Love ya!

I'm a big fan of "Cheerleader Nation," Lifetime's reality series that documents the ups and downs of a prizewinning high school cheerleader squad in Kentucky. Cheerleaders, it turns out, are just like you and me, but prettier. Cheerleaders' mothers, meanwhile, are just like you and me, but more manipulative.
