In praise of pork

A new restaurant focuses on all things porcine.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
In a 1995 episode of “The Simpsons” titled “Lisa the Vegetarian,” Homer Simpson exasperates his daughter, Lisa, by asking her to enumerate the meats she will no longer eat: pork chops, bacon and ham. Lisa snaps at him that those meats all come from the same creature.

Craig Finn — Clear Heart Full Eyes

The Hold Steady’s songwriter steps out on his own to write some songs about loneliness.


Indie

Matt Carney
I think the best way to compare the songwriting material in 40-year-old Craig Finn’s first-ever solo album with the excellent stuff that constitutes his catalogue with Brooklyn-by-Minneapolis rockers The Hold Steady is to just embrace the truth that you can’t have fun all the time.
