Buffy Read-A-Long

Season 8 of Buffy is coming out as comics, starting March 7th.

To celebrate, we're getting together across the street at the Golden West Bar, 8pm, to read the first issue together, drink Slayers (the drink, not the people - which will be on special) and maybe watch a few old episodes of the show.

Check back here for any changes or updates!

He Likes Him! He Really Likes Him!

I'm a shameless fan of Anthony Bourdain and his show No Reservations. He seems to be inviting writers on his show this season. Chuck Palahniuk I can understand, since he did a kind of travel guide, but Jerry Stahl? Does he eat?

Not really sure how I feel about that yet, but I definitely love it when he rags on the Food Network.

Though he likes our local show, Ace of Cakes:

THAT ACE OF CAKES GUY: Hey...He's got talent! And..he seems to be a trained chef! And he's really making food--and selling it in a real business! I think...I like it! If I have one reservation, it's that I have no idea if the stuff actually TASTES good.

Duff made us one to celebrate one of the store's Anniversaries:

It was delicious. Serious. (via lhb)

It's our 6th Anniversary here on the Avenue this Spring. Watch for more info about the celebration!

And thank you all for keeping us around.
