TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2010 8:00 PM 1020 S. Harrison Rd. • East Lansing
The white chicken chili comes in a cup for $2.95 or in a bread bowl for $5.95.
The menu is divided into “the weigh up” (appetizers); “hands up” (sandwiches and burgers); “round one” (chili and salad); and “the knock out” (entrees). Everything is less than $9. There’s also a few breakfast options that are served all day. I ordered the waitress recommended white chicken chili ($2.95 cup) over the reg-

ular chili. It had a lot of chicken and cheese, but the ﬂavor was a lot tangier and sweeter than I’m used to. I also ordered the apricot wings ($6.95), a one-pound order of pineapple-marinated baked wings glazed with apricot syrup. It came with buffalo sauce and celery. While the wings were meaty and crispy, the apricot ﬂavor was a little overpowering — thick and syrupy.

Edmund’s is a sports bar, with an upscale feel. The old sports memorabilia on the walls, and even the newspaper “article” that comes on your food plate help stir up feelings of nostalgia. And drinks are served in an 8-ounce mason jar. There’s also an area tucked in the corner that has a pool table, board games and a ﬁreplace — and I imagined how fun the place would be if it were packed.

Edmund’s Pastime is a new downtown Lansing restaurant, but has a familiar feel. It’s operated by the people who run Troppo, and takes over the spot that used to house Troppo, which is now conveniently across the street.

Looking for the perfect gift? We’ve got ideas to fit every price range The NOISE holiday gift guide has ideas for ways you can buy local, buy online or do both at once. Lansing resident Cortney McLean sells her handmade vintage jewelry creations in her online shop at Etsy.com. (Check out a charming brass necklace she created in the jewelry section). “I make many of my pieces by deconstruction others and using them in a different way,” McLean said. “A broken earring may make the perfect pendant or hair pin. I’m always gluing something to something else.” McLean said she has as much fun doing holiday shopping on Etsy as she does selling. “If I can’t make it I’m sure someone on Etsy can,” McLean said. “Buying handmade is the best.”

RECYCLED MAGAZINE BOWLS
‘Tis the season for tablets and electronic readers. If you’re shopping for an avid reader, Amazon’s Kindle will make their home library endless and let them subscribe to newspapers and magazines from around the world. Its size and screen make it easy to toss in a purse and read from anywhere. For someone who likes to split their leisure time between books, movies, gaming and surfing the web, the iPad has the horsepower to handle all these activities. It does more, but also costs more. • Where: Available online, find the Kindle at www.amazon.com and the iPad at www.apple.com or check them out at a local Best Buy store. • Cost: Kindle starts at $139. iPad starts at $499
Go green and get crafty for the holidays by making a set of recycled magazine bowls for the news junkie in your life. Make them in a variety of sizes and you’ll end up with a funky office accessory, plant holder or decorative centerpiece. WHAT YOU NEED: • Old magazines • Clear tape • Craft glue* HOW IT WORKS • Rip full-size pages of the magazine out. • Fold each in half three times, into about 1 inch strips. • Tape the strips to each other at each end, making a long chain of paper. Roll paper tightly into a spiral. • Use a rubber band to hold the strips in place if you need to finish the project in more than one sitting. (A six-inch spiral makes a small planter and takes about two magazines. The bigger the spiral, the bigger the bowl.) • When the spiral has reached a substantial size, tape down the last strip to the outer edge. Holding the center of the spiral down on a surface, gently lift up from two sides to create the height desired. • Optional: Coat with clear glue to add stability. Coating the bowls in a clear craft glue is optional, but will make them studier and more water resistant.

For some people, the most personal gift you can give isn’t for them. If you have a friend or family member who is dedicated to a cause, donating to it may be the present they’ll appreciate most. For animal lovers, maybe it’s a donation to the Humane Society or local animal shelter. Monetary donations are typically welcome at any non-profit, but they may also have a wish list of supplies if you’d rather donate stuff than cash. Call the organization or check its web site to see how you can help.

34-oz. Long Islands remain at Whiskey Barrel I came to The Whiskey Barrel with certain expectations. And when the ﬁrst thing I saw upon entering was a sign proclaiming, “Country College Night - Half Off Everything - Ride Dick All Night!” I was feeling pretty afﬁrmed in my assumptions. This was going to be a loud, crass, obnoxious theme park dedicated to bad behavior in the name of cowboy culture. Dick, incidentally, is the name of the resident mechanical bull. In case you were wondering. So I sat down at the bar and awaited the ridiculousness. Instead I found myself witnessing Floyd and his wife Ellie teaching a mild-mannered ﬂock of folks to square dance. There they were: a dance ﬂoor full of nice, friendly people shufﬂing merrily around with their partners in tentative square dancing steps. These people didn’t seem loud, crass or obnoxious. Come to think of it, as I looked around myself, I didn’t see half the cowboy kitsch I expected to ﬁnd at The Whiskey Barrel. The place deﬁnitely has a country theme to it, but not garishly so. The tall bar tables sit on big barrels — whiskey barrels, presumably
— and the interior is meant to feel a bit like an old-time saloon, but it also has clean, modern elements. And the girls behind the bar wear cowboy hats and tiny, tiny shorts. In December. So I guess not every element of The Whiskey Barrel was a surprise. I have no doubt that after the square-dancers clear out the atmosphere becomes more beﬁtting of Daisy Dukes than mild-mannered cowpokes. Whiskey Barrel is the former Sparty’s Dance Club, after all. Though the bar changed names and interior decorators in 2005, the management is the same. “It was time for a change,” said Ed Bentley, manager of 10 years. “Sparty’s was a college-oriented club. It was 18 and up every night with Top 40 music.” Now the bar is 18 and up just two of the four nights it’s open and plays country music, but The Whiskey Barrel also varies from the original format by doubling as a live music venue. “We’ve had some national names here,” Bentley said, “and we’ve got a few coming up, like Frankie Ballard, Brett Eldredge and Jason Sturgeon.” While those rather impressive names might not have made appear-

ances at Sparty’s, those who were fans of the old dance club will be glad to know that their specialty drinks, 34-oz. Long Islands and a mysterious concoction called the Blue Motorcycle are still in rotation. The beer selection may not be huge, nor widely varied at The Whiskey Barrel, but what is huge are the beers themselves. I’m pretty poor at estimating quantities, but I’m fairly sure I could have ﬁt my entire forearm in the mug. They also are the only country-themed bar in Lansing, and the only countrythemed anything that has ever temped me to use the descriptor, “tasteful,” but much of The Whiskey Barrel — from the décor to the tame square dancing class — is just that. Just not the whole “ride Dick all night” part. Natalie Burg is a writer and cheerleader of Michigan businesses — particularly ones with wine lists and numerous beers on tap.

‘Tunes: A Comic Book History of Rock and Roll’
EDITED BY VINCENT BRUNNER (UNIVERSE)
I stumbled across this book while putting together the requisite holiday display of humongous music books, and consider it a real find among a section of straightforward bios and photojournalism collections. This fascinating book is only about the size of a standard hardcover, but packs a punch that will beguile any indie-rock fan. Covering artists and bands from Little Richard to The Kinks to Radiohead, each section begins with an entertaining breakdown of the music and the rockers behind it, featuring a selected discography and playlist. But the really interesting part is the comics that are paired with the bios: Each is a totally unique approach to the subject. The overall sense echoes the underground comics of the ’70s — a fun, creative, zine-type approach to histories that have been told over and over, but are somehow made incredibly fresh again.

D.R.U.G.S. album release
With a rep for crafting poignant, interpersonal lyrics and putting on explosive live shows, singer Craig Owens drove Davison, Mich., post-hardcore band Chiodos to the top before leaving the band to pursue his own project. Now the venture is fully conceived, and Owens is out on the road with his new band, D.R.U.G.S., and set to release his debut album on Decaydance/Sire Records in early 2011. Recorded with John Feldmann, (The Used, Panic at the Disco), the disc is more aggressive than anything Owens did with Chiodos. He says making the D.R.U.G.S. record was Courtesy photo “cathartic” and his “form of therapy.” The group’s “Rise from the Ashes Tour” makes a stop Sunday at Mac’s Bar. As for the lineup, Owens is at the helm, leading former members of Matchbook Romance, Story of the Year, From First to Last and Underminded. “The idea for this band stemmed from the fact that I wanted to do this right; I wanted to make the biggest band I possibly could, and that’s exactly what I’ve done here,” Owens said. • D.R.U.G.S., Eyes Set To Kill, New Medicine, Bridegroom • Doors 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12 • Mac’s Bar, 2700 E.

Gossip in the Forest
‘The Foot Fist Way’ PA R A M O UN T
(82 MIN, RATED R)
12 | NOISE
P ER S P E C T I V E 2
The much-buzzed early collaboration between Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”) and Jody Hill (“Observe and Report”), “Foot Fist” attempts to plant the seeds of what would become their signature comedy style; brazen, ego-filled dialogue in a deadpan delivery, with a wild lack of self awareness. And while there are bright, momentarily hilarious spots in “Foot Fist,” the result still feels more like a half-baked, overlong Mad TV skit than a feature film. McBride’s Fred Simmons, wannabe Taekwondo superstar stuck teaching in a stripmall dojo, feels like notes scribbled on the back of a napkin, waiting to be fleshed out as Kenny Powers, comedy force of nature from “Eastbound.” And for two comedy strongmen such as McBride and Hill, the inexcusable creeps in at times; boredom. A wry comedy without focus or direction, “Foot Fist” is worthwhile as a curiosity and not much more.

Lansing-based folk-rock band Gossip in the Forest will release its self-titled debut Sunday in Lansing. As opposed to a traditional concert, the show will take on a special, open house format, with guests coming and going as they please. Expect wine, appetizers, sweet treats, free live music and raffles for items from local businesses such as Coffee & Friends Café in Okemos, Freed Video Production, Mb Stephens Artwork, Kusnier Photography, GraylanDstudios, Alpha Ave. Chocolates, Mind Garden Creative, Cynthia Trygier Interiors and MomsBookstore.net. “The main reason for the CD premiere is to show our family, friends and fans exactly what we having been working for all summer,” guitarist and composer Tom Cocozzoli says. “We also want to provide them with a wonderful afternoon in lieu of our appreciation for not only their generosity, since the CD was funded solely by funds collected via tips at each show, but also for their devotion to us.” The Lansing-recorded effort really highlights the band’s energetic shows and spontaneous live feel. “I think it captures the sound of the band in a realistic, non-overproduced way,” Cocozzoli says. “I believe the vocals are what sets it apart, and we’re all very pleased with the way they came out on the CD.” • Gossip in the Forest debut CD release • 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12 • Perspective2, 319 E.

LEISURE SPORTS FUN
You’re all painfully aware of my afﬁnity for Monkeyball (www.playmonkeyball.com) ... but what you may not know is that I actually enjoy a little-known sport that requires cardiovascular activity. (Shocking, I know.) There’s a new game on the tailgate circuit that’s perfect for that friend or family member who just has to get active, as annoying as that can be. Lord knows that a few Smirnoff Ices can make a girl want to jump around a bit. Spikeball (www.spikeball.com) is a game that is played two-on-two with rules similar to volleyball. As Urban Daddy deﬁnes it, “A taut Hula Hoopsized net is placed at ankle level between a pair of two-player teams. You smack the palm-sized ball down on the net so it ricochets up at your opponents. They have up to three hits between them to control it and bounce it back to you. When they miss, you score. First team to 21 wins.” That sounds a wee bit banal, but honestly — play this game for ten minutes and you won’t be able to quit. I’ve played a number of times, (quite competitively with three big strong men at one point) and I can attest to both the fun and athletic aspects of the game. Do yourself a favor: Drop $50 and buy a set. Full disclosure: I have no afﬁliation with Spikeball whatsoever. It’s just a sweet game.
There’s a fantastic device out there perfect for that mid-range novelty gift you’re seeking. Got a golfer as an uncle, stepdad or surly grandmother? May I present The Klub Kooler. This nifty golf club strongly resembles a 9.5 degree driver; with two major differences. Basically, you can’t use it to hit a golf ball, but you can use it to store something inside it that might make your swing a little looser. The Klub Kooler is designed to hold 48 ounces of cold or hot beverage, complete with a keg-like pump mechanism which dispenses your “birdie juice” from the insulated caddy (that discretely ﬁts inside your golf bag). There are many different brands that sell this club, and you’ll pay anywhere from $30 to $50 for a great addition to any golfer’s accessory kit.

cleanse the palate of the peach ﬂavor but erased it. This is not a good thing — fruit tastes good and should linger on your taste buds for a while. The pecan presence was not noticeable, even after letting the glass warm up. Shiner describes the base beer for Holiday Cheer as “an Old World Dunkelweizen.” I didn’t get that at all. There was no clove-banana character as is common in German-style dark wheat ales, nor the typical background ﬂavors from dark grains. These chocolate, roasted and/or caramel specialty grains give dark beers their color, so the mention of caramel color on the label doesn’t make much sense. Shiner makes some great beer, especially its black lager and Czech-style pilsner, so it was disappointing that this experiment didn’t make the cut. Some ﬁne-tuning could result in a unique and delicious beer.

Christmas folk concert
It’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, and popular folk artists John Latini and Jamie-Sue Seal are ready with a collection of holiday-themed roots and blues music. The two on Sunday perform their second annual Christmas Concert at All Saint’s Episcopal Church. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Housing Assistance Fund (Haven House in East Lansing and Loaves and Fishes in Lansing). “This benefit concert supports local shelters whose need couldn’t be greater at this time of year,” says Steve Findley, who is development officer at Michigan State University and also is putting this show together. “As the cold descends upon us, folks without a home suffer more than most. The concert was so well-received last year, we decided to bring it back.” Findley says the performers have a natural, easygoing stage presence, which he’s excited to bring to the venue. “The setting at All Saints Episcopal Church is acoustically wonderful, offering a rich, full sound,” he said. “We are excited about this great combination, benefit and performer, right here in our town.” • Christmas Concert with John Latini and Jamie-Sue Seal • 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12 • All Saints Episcopal Church, 800 Abbot Road, East Lansing • $10.

TANGO IN THE NIGHT (WARNER BROS.)
For me, Lindsey Buckingham WAS Fleetwood Mac. A wildly unpopular assertion, based on the relative strength of their more bluesoriented, earlier work but one I am confident in making. With 1987’s “Tango in the Night,” Buckingham would leave his final mark on the band, before setting out on a satisfying but far less commercially successful solo career. And with the glossy yet somehow raw sound of “Tango,” he left on a high note. From the stirring “Isn’t It Midnight” to the singalong quality of “Big Love,” the album is full of highlights. Though the production is decidedly ’80s, “Caroline” has a seductive, soulful sound that showcases Buckingham’s rich voice. Never to be as highly regarded as “Rumours” or endlessly studied like “Tusk,” “Tango in the Night” remains one of Fleetwood Mac’s best albums, and an enduring testament to the songwriting abilities of Lindsey Buckingham.

Shiner Holiday Cheer
It’s somewhat surprising that peaches are seldom used for fruit beers. I found through my homebrewing adventures that while it takes 15 to 20 pounds of raspberries or cherries to really get their character and ﬂavor to shine in a ﬁve-gallon batch of beer, it only took 10 pounds of peaches. Even better is that using overripe peaches are best, which means heavily discounted store prices on the fruit. The best peach beer I’ve had is Lindeman’s Peche from Belgium — wonderful fruit ﬂavor and aroma without being too sweet and an Asti Spumante character to the body. I found Shiner’s Holiday Cheer on the store shelves and the initial description on the label was enticing — “ale brewed with peaches and pecans. ...” The peach ﬂavor and aroma of the wheat ale was enticing, but not overwhelming, blending well with the malt. The medium carbonation also worked in favor of the fruit, giving the beer a solid quality that lets you know you are drinking a beer, not a soda. However, the ﬁnish destroyed all this good will with an overly harsh, hoppy bitterness that didn’t
