A Grimm tale of inconsistent justice
Both are musty mainstays that do little to showcase the city's modern reputation as a foodie town. No Ella Dining Room & Bar? No Magpie I even took mine off the wall at my mom's house and hid it (she still has no clue). But when I saw these fliers ...

In Washington, Late-Night Eats Heat Up
But hey, no one ever said it would be easy to get pancakes and bacon 'round the clock. With candy-colored street-art-style wall murals, pleather ottomans and pumping club jams, it'd be easy to mistake this cubbyhole of a cafe for a fancy hair salon ...

This collection reflects the simple elegance of this time and an enduring appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. A mainstay of The Brick & Trellis Collection is the colonial bench in antique black finish. Spring floral studies in red and yellow, inspired by botanical prints in the foundation’s archives, bring the beauty of nature inside. A rare garden design book in the Colonial Williamsburg library inspired the garden shed framed prints, black and white images of simple garden objects such as a wheelbarrow and watering can. The Brick & Trellis Collection also offers a range of sophisticated woodenwares for the kitchen, as well as distinctive home accents. The woodenwares include a set of two striped pantry canisters and coordinating bowl, a checkered tray, several Tavern cutting boards, and utensils. Adding to the unique quality of the collection are the blacksmith and gentry wall clocks, pineapple tuteurs, mirrored wall sconces, and a choice of two different wine racks. “Our collaboration with Williamsburg brings together two brands that value the simple elegance and sophistication of hand-crafted, authentic.
Kat's picks: 1. Fish collars, heads and trash fish. Once mainly the provenance of sushi chefs, this easily-crisped section of fish is catching on with diners weary of belly and sides. Heads - especially the sumptuous cheek meat and the full-bodied stock they produce - are a must in many Hunan dishes, Malaysian curries and traditional Gullah recipes that are in the midst of a much-deserved renaissance. And you can't catch the big seafood stars (like cod, shrimp and salmon) without snagging some tagalongs with them. Eco- and budget-conscious eaters are discovering the virtues of varieties like triggerfish, porgy, drum, wolf eel and sand dabs, which would previously have been tossed back, discarded, ground into organic soil amendment or turned into fish sauce. Gullah fish head and catfish stew at Husk Nashville. Cranberry, lima and butterbeans, as well as blackeye and crowder peas and un-roasted peanuts are taking a star turn in main dishes and standalone sides, often without a speck of meat in sight.
Michael Grimm is lucky he’s a politician. The Republican congressman from New York became an instant YouTube star and late-night punch line following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address last week when Grimm physically threatened a television reporter who mentioned a... What Grimm didn’t become, however, was a criminal suspect. So far, the discourse has focused on whether Grimm is a thin-skinned bully who understands how live cameras work. What’s missing from that conversation is acknowledgment that this same episode would have played out much differently if you replaced Grimm with, oh say, any member of America’s working poor. If I was standing in the Capitol building, as that NY1 cable reporter was, and a homeless military veteran or a struggling fast-food worker walked up to me and snarled, “I’ll throw you off this fucking balcony,” as Grimm did, that person would... Here in California, Penal Code section 422 says that willfully threatening to commit a crime is a “strikeable” offense worthy of a four-year prison term. I wonder what would happen if tomorrow, California’s unconstitutionally overcrowded prisons released every inmate currently doing time for making criminal threats—as long as he or she apologized. Based in Alabama, Stevenson had the guts to file a motion officially asking a judge to treat his poor, 14-year-old black client as if he were a 75-year-old white corporate executive.
