Hold me How cool is the Cosmopolitan? Even its telephone-hold music—in this case, Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)”—is hipper than yours. Can I please keep listening after I make my restaurant reservation? — Spencer Patterson, managing editor

Sweet Sorrow First the Minimalist, now the Ethicist. With two of my favorite New York Times columnists saying goodbye, where will I turn for 50-word recipes and moral guidance? — Sarah Feldberg, editor

Woof! Spent hours searching for a reasonably priced, reputable doggy day care. Still haven’t found the perfect one, and I have one thing to say to local businesses: Please. Invest in a decent website. — April Corbin, web editor

Viva Las Vegas Can Las Vegas get any more awesome? MTV’s Spring Break, another Real World season in the city and the Electric Daisy Carnival—all in one year! Thank you, gods of pop culture. — Mark Adams, listings coordinator

Sayonara, Coco’s Station Casinos, thank you for wresting your cafes back from the Coco’s chain. At Sunset the other night, the place was booming and the pot roast was delicious. — John P. McDonnall, copy editor
