Three more days of Summer ahead of us, then it’s Back To Skool, kids. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting pumped for the fall…
Martin Scorsese‘s HBO show about Atlantic City mobsters during Prohibition (Boardwalk Empire) is going to kick all our asses and Mario Batali just opened up Eataly on 23rd Street – a multi-floor, 50,000 square foot restaurant/market/foodhall/shrine to Italian cuisine. Flannel shirts are coming back again this fall (which is cool ’cause I’m still fully loaded) and the gang from Arrested Development is back with a new series called Running Wilde on Fox (trailer).
Anyway, we’re not quite there yet, so let’s do the last weekday linkfest of the Summer.
