Elisa and I had lots to talk about this week: The Taco Bell meat or “meat” controversy inspired us to find out where to get good, local meat in Birmingham (tip: avoid the drive through). We also give a rundown of great shows coming up this week (including Yo la Tengo tonight), my trip to Atlanta (blog on that this week) and we let you in on what’s in season.
