How Do You Spell Chihuahua?: Charity Spelling Bee to Benefit Red Collar Rescue

If asked, would you know how to spell the word “knaidel,” which was the winning word from this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee? We didn’t think so. But perhaps you fancy yourself a speller who never had the chance to show off your orthographic chops – your chance has finally arrived. This coming Saturday, you have your shot at taking home the top prize in an all grown-up Charity Spelling Bee that will benefit the Red Collar Rescue.

Ticket Giveaway: Deadbeat Darling at Continental Club

It only took one listen to “Surf India” for me to realize that my Friday night would be booked. With an opening riff reminiscent of the Blue Album, Deadbeat Darling brings some grit to the surf sound that only a four-piece from NYC can muster. They’re familiar enough with Houston Street, but tomorrow night, 8/3/12, Manhattan will be but a distant blip in their rearview.

The Sunflower Bakery & Cafe: Can Man Live On Bread Alone?

The Sunflower Bakery has long been one of my go-to providers of the artisan bread and pastry. It was knea-deep in the carefully baked dough craze before everyone started bragging about their supplies from Kraftsmen and Slow Dough. That’s back in the last millenium. Whereas Slow Dough prizes the pretzel and Kraftsmen bolsters the baguette and bagel, Sunflower holds the challah, balla.

Photo of the Week: Give Me a Sign

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Groovehouse on here. That’s not a bad thing. Judging by this picture of the Alabama Theater sign, taken on July 26th, as well as his other entries, quality over quantity seems to be the modus operandi.

Mr. House, good on ya. And thanks for the image.

Photo of the Week: A Storm’s Coming

This week’s image is just far too impressive to shrink down—curses to you, column widths. Below you get a taste. Click here and you’ll find a better, more telling version or, hit the original on ZERO CEM’s Flickr gallery. Either way, attention should be paid.
