New Blog Column

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Jun 5, 2008 at 4:43 PM

Paul Constant up at The Stranger has a blog column called "Lunch Date," where, a few times a week, he takes a new book with him to lunch, spends half an hour or so with it, then reports on both the book and the food (here's one). With his gracious permission, I'm going to rip off that idea—the Mercury twist being that I'll take books to happy hour, rather than lunch. So it'll be a happy hour guide-meets-book club. Sounds good, right? I need a name for it, though—the only thing I can come up with is a fairly depressing Billy Joel reference. Any suggestions?
