Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the June 5, 2014 edition


The Angry Baker’s new menu

I haven’t tried a single new item, but I know I’ll love it, as always. Come to me, Vegan Sausage and Grits and BBQ Seitan Sandwich!


Creole Kitchen

I didn't think this East Side Cajun joint could possibly live up to the hype of my friends. Wrong! Get the Crawfish Etouffee.


The Head and The Heart

I had a hard time not dancing to "Shake" while photographing one of my favorite bands perform at Nelsonville Music Festival.

Coffee Mugs

I love collecting unique handmade coffee mugs. At the Nelsonville Music Festival I purchased one from Melisa Beth Ceramics. This mug has an earthy feel but is full of color and designs, I can't wait to start using it.


Sharon Van Etten’s Are We There

Songs so bleak and devastating they almost make life in Westeros seem hopeful by comparison.


“X-Men: Days of Future Past”

One of the best comic book movies of all time pulls off a great balancing act by being both uproariously funny and incredibly dark.


Dick’s Den

Why not?


Zagg iPad Mini Keyboard

It turns my iPad Mini into a tiny laptop. Oh, and the keyboard is backlit and changes color. No big deal.
