Since we’re headed towards the 4th of July Hanabi and I thought we’d share our plans for the holiday as well as some our nostalgic memories from holidays past. Basically, Hanabi is a communist as he’s not really doing anything this year, at least nothing exciting. Yours truly on the other hand is going fullon Argentine BBQ for this ID4. We’re building a Parrilla in my back yard to fully execute my vision.
It’s Transparency Week on BTR! On today’s show, we speak with Jim Garrison, head of Garrison Architects, whose Brooklyn firm installed new beach facilities for New York City’s coastlines. And later, Hudai Yavalar is the founder of the Ataturk Society of America, an independent non-profit based in Washington, DC. In his interview with BTR’s Tanya Silverman, Mr. Yavalar discusses the Turkish government’s response to the ongoing protest movements in the country.
DJ Wynn celebrates ‘Slow’ Week at BTR with a down-tempo mix featuring Bonnaroo artists such as Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Matthew E. White and Amadou & Mariam.
This week we chatted up my fellow Minnesotan Anitgoni Sander McCloud. She’s restaurateur and budding television personality. Antigoni brings the wonders of Greek cuisine to Minneapolis as the owner of Kafe 421. She’s also a regular on Twin Cities Live as an on air recipe consultant. We didn’t get to talk about Adrian Peterson being a beast for the Vikings again this season, but we did get to chat about one of the coolest cities you’ve probably made the mistake of dismissing. Dude, Prince is from there! What more do you need? Also, be sure to check out the Dish + Drink blog for Insane Dane’s latest summer recipe.
Time for the ladies to take the floor!
Happy girls week! We’re dropping an all ladies of music kind of show this week. Also, we’re introducing an on-going collaboration with BTR hype man, DJ Dane or as we like to call him Insane Dane! Dane will be repping the New York area for Eatopia and contributing mightily to the show by taking us California hayseeds on a weekly foodie tour of the NYC area. Everyone Welcome Dane to Eatopia!
One of my favorite topics, snickerdoodles, was discussed. Nuff said! Seriously though a show about cookies is just awesome. It’s all down hill from here peeps.
It’s Saturday on BTR, and boy do we have a good crop of music for you today! We’ve got lots of new tunes from bands like Bleaches and Generationals, plus, we’re reviewing some old favorite like Antony & the Johnson and Real Estate. AND if you have a Tumblr or Pinterest you’re in luck, because we just added those share buttons to the bottom of the BTR page. So enjoy some tunes and check it out!
It’s time we talked about my new obsession, overnight oatmeal. It’s seriously the best thing ever. My lady doesn’t make much in the way of food in our house. I keep our (my) kitchen on lockdown. But she’s been crushing it at making overnight oatmeal. I would let her use one of my Shun knives to open a can if she would make it for me again. Anyway, never has oats, chia seeds, greek yogurt, honey, fruit and skim milk mixed in a mason jar tasted so good. Check out some great overnight oatmeal recipes at The Yummy Life. We also talked about how shrimp and grits is getting super popular at Yankee brunch spots. Grits, they’re not just for Alabamians anymore!
It’s Weird Wednesday on BTR! We’ve got new weird tunes this week from Fol Chen, Dump, Amatorski, and Herbcraft. Plus, old favorites like Joan of Arc and Dent May will grace your ear drums with the ultimate weirdness. Don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest weird updates!!
Today, I talk about how I moved from one Brooklyn apartment to another over the weekend. Also, a whole lot of songs about moving and danger.
