Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Cookouts, car repairs, strange beasts and late nights — it’s getting to be summertime in blogtown, and the livin’ is easy.

Running Gags, aka Boston Dreams and Michelin Stars, is whipping up the ice cream and wants you to have the recipe. But lordy, don’t leave out the bourbon!

The Ashevillein is concerned about the growing groundhog problem. Can our own Andie save the day?

She Who Eats, for some reason, wants to know what kind of veggie dish you can cook on the grill while Skippy Haha is jealous of the soup selection in Chattanooga.

Has Washington, D.C., been rendered obsolete? Ephemera found someone selling propaganda on the streets right here in Asheville. Hey, a man’s gotta eat.

A Sort of Notebook knows how to deal with your car blowing up — bake cookies!

Speaking of baking, Good Night Asheville — a blog of nighttime photos of town — got this picture. Put that in your pipe and somke it!

It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
