In tomorrow’s City Paper, you’ll find:

  • The Food Issue 2006: Our pull-out guide to informed dining in D.C. Tim Carman runs down the meaning of authenticity in local eateries, the global culinary journeys of D.C.-based chefs, and restaurateurs’ best drunk-eviction stories. Kim Gooden weighs in with a piece on the dying salt and pepper shakers, while Anne Marson chronicles the still-vibrant loaner jacket, and, in the main issue, the city’s top food-safety instructor. John Stubbs explains fast food’s death grip on 14th Street NW and chips in with some off-the-wall interviews with local chefs.
  • Amanda S. Miller on Shaw ANC candidate Kevin Chapple, who might just be the guy to unseat legendary civic troublemaker Leroy Thorpe.
  • In Loose Lips: James Jones on Alec Evans’ dismissal from Fentyworld, Mayor Williams’ late-breaking appointments, and more.
  • In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on WKYS-FM’ ill-advised foray into giving out go-go awards.
  • In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on a Redskins fan’s immensely popular parody Web animation.
  • Huan Hsu on an interesting alternative to art school: Whole Foods’ resident artist program. Yup, they hire pros to so all those chalkboards.
  • Plus lots of film (Jenkins on Terry Gilliam), lots of theater, books, and more
