Whoop & Alley-Oop with the Four Preps

Whoop & Alley-Oop with the Four Preps

Though the band began with Bruce, Glen, Ed, and Marvin and now consists of Bruce, Bob, Skip, and Michael, The Four Preps still harmonize and comprise a vocal quartet that will erase—momentarily—all images of twerking or the contemporary sounds that some folks of a particular age and era may have a hard time acknowledging as music. The [...]

Ulla’s Hummus

I put more tahini in my hummus than you’ll find in store bought, and enough garlic to keep the vampires away, and lemon juice and a bit of cumin and cayenne. And, of course, olive oil. Usually there’s paprika on top to make it pretty, but I seem to have run out. You can of [...]

Wine & Cheese Flights & Sam Maloof

Sam Maloof was the first craftsman awarded the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship. The Smithsonian Institution declared Maloof “America’s most renowned contemporary furniture craftsman.” His rocking chair has been described as having “sinewy sculpted lines” and “a modern stylistic aesthetic of clean lines born of practical consideration.” Beauty comes not from added ornamentation. It comes from enhancement [...]
