‘Bridgerton’: A Period Drama Done Right

Netflix’s latest period drama, Bridgerton, created by Chris Van Dusen and directed by Shonda Rimes, premiered on December 25, 2020.

‘Today Will be Different’: Maria Semple’s not-so-different novel

Anna Huener, Staff Writer December 17, 2020
I picked up Today Will be Different excited, looking for a story as well-crafted as Where’d you go, Bernadette? While Semple’s latest book is witty and engaging in the same ways, it is also disappointingly similar to her previous one.

Classic records we recommend: Fleetwood Mac – Tusk

Ayden Flanigan February 6, 2020

I was on a little Fleetwood Mac kick this week. I’ve always kind of written the genre-shifting band a pass, especially their famous mid-70s hits. They came off as milk toast music made for middle-aged...

When I walked into Taco Gordo on a very cold and snowy Friday night, the doorway was blocked by a large hanging black sheet to keep the cold from rushing in and freezing everyone inside. Lured by the...
