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).
