What can you find in this week's Isthmus? Highlights from the latest issue follow:
- Wanna Buy a Duck Dept.: Jason Joyce profiles Mallards general manager Vern Stenman (a.k.a. Mr. Mallard), the man who puts the quack in the Duck Pond. Adopt-a-Duck Dept.: If you've ever wondered what it's like to have a Mallard living in your house, read on.
- Like books? So do we. Check out the new crop of young American novelists in Isthmus Books Quarterly; while you're at it, fill up on local book news. You'll be glad you did.
- In music, Tom Laskin gives us in the lineup for Hot Summer Nights, the FREE! lakeside music series at the Terrace, and Rich Albertoni previews Los Tigres del Norte (muy groovy).
- Other Stuff Dept.: Fast Cars & Superstars (TV); Zoo and Knocked Up (Movies); agritourism (Local Flavor); looking at the world through rosé-colored wine glasses (Food & Drink).
