Sponge-Worthy

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Courtesy of a Dreamtown fan from Northern Virginia comes a reference to Dreamtown food that was heard on NPR a couple weeks ago and is not about wings.

It comes from a program called The Splendid Table in a piece featuring Jan and Michael Stern of Roadfood.com called “A Most Sponge-Worthy City“. (Seinfeld’s influence is everywhere.) It’s about, of course, sponge candy with an extra shout-out for hot fudge sundaes at Alethea’s. Nice to see (or hear) kudos for more than just the ubiquitous wings and the lesser-known but still highly touted beef-on-weck.

Extreme Makeover on Air

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

At long last, the Dreamtown episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is due to air on Sunday at 8 pm. ABC has turned it into a two-hour special because hey, it’s Dreamtown. Designer Paige Hemmis was interviewed about the episode, which she called “definitely Top Ten.”

One of her more interesting observations: “Everyone told us it is going to be so cold in Buffalo … it was warmer than all of our other shows. We had wonderful weather …” And that was in November. Are you getting this, ABC News?

Get your VCRs and DVRs ready!
