Ode to Mardi Gras
Artist Clare Crespo has been busy getting ready for Mardi Gras next month. There will be seafood gumbo, oysters on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, soft-shell crabs, catfish po' boy, beignets and cafe au lait, and king cake. The entire feast will be made lovingly -- with yarn. From Feb. 6 to 21, Crespo's crocheted food exhibit, "Laissez le Bon Crochet Rouler," will be on display at Heath Ceramics.

It was just a little over a year ago that Bobby Green and his 1933 Group opened the kitschy truck-stop-inspired bar Stinkers in Silver Lake.
Now, according to Green's publicist, Green has grown tired of his own handiwork and wants to trade up to something a bit classier than fake skunk butts that emit steam when a bartender pulls the cord of a big-rig horn. Green plans to auction off the bar's '70s-themed décor on Feb. 9.
