We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

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

  • A great cover piece by Jason Cherkis on the state of sit-down dining in Ward 8. Politicians have promised the residents of the carryout-strewn ward a restaurant where you can sit down and have a decent meal for years. But Jason finds a few places where you can do that right now—and in the process exposes the reality of the restaurant biz east of the river.
  • A pair of killer media stories: Ryan Grim takes down the Post’s lousy meth exposé by rewriting their own story. Erik Wemple weighs in on the Post’s obsession with the New York Times—an $18,000 a year obsession.
  • Bob Mondello’s personal tribute to Source Theatre founder Bart Whiteman, who passed away recently.
  • A profile by Dave Jamieson of a guy who gets paid to ride Metrobuses all day.
  • A sharp review of albums by Roseanne Cash and Jessi Colter by Joe Dempsey
  • Trey Graham on a very good Hamlet up in Columbia, Md.
  • Plus Loose Lips, Young & Hungry, Savage Love, et al.
