We really had a lovely time at the Food Book Fair and Foodieodicals this year.We just stumbled upon these photos by Liz Clayman who captured the day in its entirety. A big thank you to Elizabeth and all who helped create, participated and attended.
Remodelista recently profiled new Diner Journal stockist Friends & Neighbors in Austin, Texas. A shop and cafe (run by Marlow & Daughters former manager Mercedes Singleton) is housed in an old bungalow, where visitors can shop and sip from room to room throughout.
All of the seasonal stop and go has us anxiously anticipating that consistent warm feeling. Leaving the house in the evening and never wondering at the last step before the door, “Should I bring a sweater?” When it felt like the rain would never quit yesterday, we woke up to sunshine. From my desk I see a wall of hollow plywood cubes filled high with every issue of Diner Journal. Issue 21 in particular with its tangerine blotched spine is fitting for todays revisit and reminds me of that especially hot summer of 2012, when both it and I arrived here, in what is now the office, and what was then the gallery, This Must Be The Place.

“Risk is the only way anything happens around here . . . The relentless but ineffective alarm clock echoing into the thunderdome or our dreams, plants that refuse to fruit, edits never made, the unpossessed performance . . . the fear or frying an egg, seasoning the pasta, browning the meat . . . We have to allow the fear to activate us.” (Excerpt p.5)

On Derby Day, May 3rd 2014, Wythe Cinema will host a very special screening of “Breadcrumb Trail,” a feature-length documentary that tells the story of Slint, perhaps the most legendary band to emerge from the American independent underground of the 1990’s.
A Q & A will follow with founding Slint members Brian McMahan, David Pajo, and Britt Walford, and join us before the screening as we stream the Kentucky Derby, and acclaimed Reynard chef and Louisville native Sean Rembold serves Derby-inspired food including pimento cheese sandwiches, cucumber benedictine, mini hot browns, pulled pork sliders, and bourbon chocolate pecan pie. These treats won’t last all night, so get ‘em while you can!
