Mar 2nd, 2012 | By

ShareTweetHave you heard? @KateiForMayor!!! The slogan-turned-twitter page has been popping up on social networks and shouted at shows all over Greensboro in 2012. A product of spit-fire facebookin’, Sheets-style wisdom, and Obama-inspired art, @KateiForMayor began in January as a response to the wide-spread altercation  between an opinionated green-haired girl and a wizardly fellow on Tate Street; the first “katei

Feb 14th, 2012 | By

ShareTweet“Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.” – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind I hate Valentine’s Day. I hate chocolate, flowers, and bullshit like that. I might be the Scrooge of Valentine’s Day. I’m not bitter, by any means. I haven’t been single on Valentine’s Day

Tacos de carne asada

ShareTweetWho doesn’t love Mexican food? It’s cheap, sloppy, spicy, and delicious. As far back as I remember the ritual of eating chips and salsa and drinking oversized Mexican beers with friends has been a part of my life. Kiosco takes your everyday Mexican cuisine and kicks it up a few notches with the same traditions

Jan 27th, 2012 | By

ShareTweetAs I write this, I’m worrying about the knee surgery I may potentially need in my 30s. I’m thinking about the guy that threw his arm around my neck and choked me.  I’m also wondering how many people grabbed onto my boobs last night. I think I lost track after the fifth boob-grab. I’m thinking about
