    • Kittendales!

      Brace yourselves. There’s a calendar of “kitties and hotties” raising money for rescue in Massachusetts and showcasing adoptable animals. Beautiful shirtless man holding tiny cat and enormous wrench? Lord, yes. —Erin Ryan, staff writer

    • Whiskey headache

      The good news? Pub 1842 at MGM Grand just got four bottles of the nearly impossible-to-find Pappy Van Winkle. The bad news? It’s going to cost you $600 a shot. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Food for thought

      A Kansas man won $50,000 for making carrot cake, defeating bacon and barbecue (among other category winners), at the 2013 World Food Championships on Fremont Street. Really? Let them eat cake! I’ll take the salt. —Don Chareunsy, contributing editor
