NEWS/OPINION
Publicly financed candidates may not be aware of all the rules surrounding their campaigns. It is the maiden voyage of the system, after all. Plus, the debut of "Asshat of the Week." Yeah, we're really into that word.
MUSIC
Road life beats on a touring cowboy, punk rockers resist the "revivalist" label and the Potty Mouth Sherry's ride off into the sunset with their weird apostrophe.
FOOD
La Quiche Parisienne Bistro is the real thing in a sea of preservative-laden baked goods. Plus, learn how to drink tequila. Be sure to partake in an entire haikued Chowtown.

ARTS/LIT
Crack, self-inflicted wounds, what more can you want from live theater? Hooray for the NC-17 play Bug at the Vortex Theatre.
