Wilde Roast Café Celebrates Fifth Anniversary

My first cookbook is titled Garden County: Where Everyone is Welcome to sit at the Table. You could say that’s also the motto of Wilde Roast Café (named after Oscar Wilde, famed 19th-Century gay Irish playwright). It’s a safe and inclusive haven for all people. Everyone is truly welcome to sit at its tables.

Wilde Roast owners and life partners Dean Schlaak and Tom DeGree created a gathering place that is cozy, and offers some of the finest made-from-scratch comfort food in the Twin Cites. Everything is prepared onsite in the open kitchen, using the freshest ingredients.

Ms. Behavior®: GPS as Marital Aid

Dear Readers:
Occasionally, Ms. Behavior learns something that she is compelled to share with her readers, even before she gets a letter asking about it. However, if there were a question leading to this response, perhaps it would be: “What are the 10 essential ingredients to a happy marriage?” While that subject is too cumbersome to address in one column, Ms. Behavior may consider a series on this topic.

Endangered in the Outfield

We were standing outside the State Capitol at a rally for an endangered insect, when Greta turned to me, and made a shocking announcement.
“I’m signing us up for a softball team,” she said poisonously, making every syllable sound like a threat.

As I sputtered helplessly in response, I was dealt another blow. The leader of the rally reluctantly stepped up to the podium, and told us he had just learned that the insect (a type of spotted beetle whose name I’d rather not mention, because I’m so disgusted with it) is not really endangered. It’s not even threatened. Read the rest of this entry »

Historical Personalities Do Stand-up Comedy

I recently offered my services to write some political comedy material for our new President to use in his speeches.

Some might find this unusual, but the fact is, many politicians, except that last laugh-riot President, have employed comedy writers. Hiring us not only provides media sound bites, but also gives a politician the illusion of having a sense of humor. Read the rest of this entry »

Anomalous Stature

What’s dubbed insanity in the working classes is thought no more than minor eccentricity among society’s elite. However, it sometimes does one good to dabble in the fashion pathos of the uber rich. They don’t care if their getups occasionally draw tabloid aggro. The irony is, one who flaunts convention often fathers the next generation of it. So don’t be surprised if your avant-garde, Beale-esque accessories are soon echoed on your frenemies.
