Tonight was the big premier of the television series,”Nashville”.  Notwithstanding the fingernails-across-a-chalkboard feeling I got every time I heard a fake southern accent (90% of the show), I was highly entertained.  After all, who can think of a better formula than feuding country divas, political intrigue, and some downright great music?   The only thing missin’ were the biscuits and the red-eye gravy.  I’m sure upcoming episodes will include the Loveless Cafe, Pancake Pantry, as well as other  local iconic venues.

Artist Yuken Teruya has something more like take-out in mind with these paper bag fantasy sculptures.  Delicately cut trees give new meaning to the “Happy meal” if one takes the time to peer inside.  Vegan and completely satisfying.
