Our first summer issue: summer vacations, summer books, and more.Summer Reading
A round-up of the buzz books for summer, including new works by David Guterson and Alan Furst.Take a Few Days Off
Our huge feature on weekend getaways includes my contribution about The Villa at Saugerties in the Catskills: "Say goodbye to the chintz, the brocade, and the stuffy Victorian furniture. Just because you want to get away for the weekend doesn’t mean you want to leave your sense of style behind with the babysitter." (About three-quarters of the way down the page.)Grilling the Experts
Grill tips from the pros: "McGrath says that natural wood chips are the best source of fuel, but if you’re using charcoal, 'you want it to be white-hot, not red-hot. That’s the best way to grill something.'" (Second item down)
The Director's Cut
An article about Bruce David Klein, director of Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise
: "Klein, Meat Loaf says, 'is a pesky little thing and he manages to wiggle and squeeze himself into places that I didn’t necessarily like all of the time.'" (The link to this story is being repaired.)Culture, Etc.
A new art exhibition about space exploration, Chuck Mangione, and more.
