Dining, planetary hope, and composers John Harbison and Ben Johnston in the April 17 edition of Isthmus
on

What can you find in this week's Isthmus? Highlights from the latest issue follow:

  • In this year's edition of Dining, we praise Madison as a city that knows how to make a great sandwich. We look at the growing trend of prix fixe menus across town. And we hunt out the area's healthiest desserts -- well, healthier, anyway. Plus: a look back at where we dined over the last 12 months, and a crash course in wine appreciation.

  • Rob Zaleski delivers the new environmental maxim: Don't mourn, de-carbonize.

  • Bill Lueders looks into a voting snafu and the Joel Marino reward fund.

  • Joe Tarr looks into how Madison is sucking up (in a good way) to developers.

  • Rick Berg acknowledges achievements high and low in the spring elections.
  • Sandy Tabachnick profiles John Harbison and Ben Johnston, the Dane County-based composers who've left their mark on music history.

  • Jay Rath reports on Forward Theater, the star-studded new professional group in Madison.

  • Jennifer Smith previews University Theatre's production of Hair, still groovy after all these years.

  • Rich Albertoni talks to Eric Caldera, the singer and songwriter who performs as Oedipus Tex.

  • Jessica Steinhoff previews the performance by The Handsome Family, America's fave goth-country act.
  • Dean Robbins skewers Fox's new animated comedy series Sit Down, Shut Up.

  • Kenneth Burns is moved and horrified by Gomorrah, opening this weekend at the Orpheum. Also reviewed: Examined Life, opening at Sundance.

  • Health, Beauty, Fitness: Thermography offers another way to approach breast-cancer screening, as well as other medical imaging needs.

  • Tell All: What's wrong with dating a deer hunter?
