The fruit trees aren’t the only ones in the area that were cut. They made out much better than seven larger trees in the park a few blocks south that were trimmed so severely that the city’s urban forester, Mike Cusimano, recommended they be removed...

But the Brooklyn I remember from my youth is more about garbage blowing across the Belt Parkway and Coney Island whitefish than hipsters with MFAs wrangling poetry from their memoirs.

First of all, it’s not Mr. Longworth’s fault that there is only one local public affairs TV show in the area. Second, the contest is to determine “Triad’s Best,” so it only follows that if “Triad Today” is the only possible winner in a newly formed category, then it is also the Triad’s Best in that category.

You could say that Eric Church’s North Carolina homecoming at the Greensboro Coliseum Saturday night went a lot like the lyrics to his recent No. 1 country single “Drink In My Hand.” He filled it up, he threw down and, judging from the careful attention he paid to the red Solo cup full of whiskey on his mic stand, he likely got a little hungover.

Mix you’re most proud of: It would have to be a tie between: “Baby Got Bass” — soundcloud.com/dj-glo-ko/baby-got-bass and “Bass Animale” — soundcloud.com/dj-glo-ko/bassanimale Personal playlist: I listen to all kinds of music besides EDM. The only genres I’m not a big fan of are extremely twangy, yodel like country and the new-age rap.

Don’t tell me there’s nothing to do in the Triad. On any given day, you can go to exhibits of new work by local artists or period pieces at roughly a half dozen galleries in Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Exhibits change up every two months, so you can be confident there’s something you haven’t seen before.

Speaking of beef, it once was that angus beef was the province of fine-dining establishments and prime steakhouses. But as the old saying goes, once they get it at Burger King, it’s no longer fancy food. Nevertheless, Fatz Café has added angus beef to its menu in sirloin and ribeye cuts, as well as burgers.
