I turn 29 this week. That’s still a baby to some, ancient to others, but just right to me.

Eco-chic

Being good to the planet doesn’t mean giving up pretty things. I promise.

I don’t even want to think what the girl sitting in front of me was feeling like. She was granola, wearing a long skirt, her head heavy with dreads that I imagine itched like crazy.

Feelin’ flexy?

Going vegetarian, but only part of the time


OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
A “flexitarian” is a concept that has been around since the ’40s, when our government asked citizens to give up meat for some meals, so the extra rations could be donated to our troops at war. Now scores of folks are flexing, so in honor of Earth Day on Friday — which also happens to be Good Friday — consider making your next meal meatless.

Wedding-ready

New dresses! Free booze!


Features

Weddings, weddings everywhere, nor any drop to drink. (Yeah, I just dropped a “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” bastardization on you.)

Summer lovin’

Dresses and shorts help you beat the heat


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
You know what’s the opposite of fun? The AC breaking. On Memorial Day weekend. It took me about two hot seconds before I slipped into full-on Depression-Era lady mode, fanning myself while I soaked my feet in cold water. It was truly pathetic.

Spanking new

Yep, these seven are fired up and ready to go with flavorpacked food flying out of the kitchens. Step aside, everyone, there are plenty of new places to try. Go get ’em!

In what used to be a former chimney shop, owners Juan Manuel Diaz and his wife, Solorro Garcia, opened their first Mexican restaurant in late June. Filled with family members, its enchiladas are pure Mexican, not Tex-Mex, they say. To the delight of its many regular customers, the tortillas are handmade on the spot.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.
