It’s hard to define piroshki, though there’s no doubt they’re a Russian food. I say “food” because it’s a little ambiguous as to whether it’s a pastry, snack, or meal. Whichever group(s) it falls under, with its thick, deep-fried dough stuffed with an assortment of fillings ranging from meat to vegetarian-friendly options, You might call piroshki the Hot Pocket’s granddaddy.

It's about time to talk about TransportedSF, not just because they have another kickass event coming up June 21, but because their sexy little crew dubbed "The Nomads" just graced a page in our equally sexy Scene Magazine (on newstands last week, and online for, well, ever.)

Remember Angel? Remember flab, the folds, and the sticks and stones we called my bones? Thierry Mugler - the fashion designer who went all the way with shoulder pad fascism and added the scent of chocolate (with sublime results, if we might say so ourselves) to perfume - has evidently gone completely ape for adrenalin and weird bulgy veins in strange places, and has turned himself from a "renowned courturier to muscle-bound beast."

I like wine bars. Not only for the obvious reason -- good wine -- but because they tend to be small, intimate, and a bit quiet – the perfect place for an intimate conversation or romantic rendezvous.
