Nite Moves -- and Steve Barnes -- on the Colbert Report


Heh. The Colbert Report last night recognized Nite Moves owner Stephen Dick as a "difference maker" for his fight to have stripping regarded as an art form. For tax purposes. So he wouldn't have to pay a lot of back taxes.

Steve Barnes plays a prominent role in the segment, lending his expertise in art criticism. And what it's like to have breast sweat smeared on your glasses. (Steve says over at Table Hopping that he's "generally pleased" with how his appearance turned out.)

As you know, Nite Moves recently lost its case before the state's highest court in a 4-3 decision.

In the kitchen with the TOP finalists

Check it out: Steve visited the two finalists in the 2010 Tournament of Pizza -- DeFazio's in Troy and Marino's in Schenectady -- to find out which pizzas they'll be entering in the final showdown. This video will make you hungry:

Bold choice by DeFazio's going with the whole wheat crust. And how about the way Mario from Marino's tosses that dough?

Thanks to Steve and the two pizzerias for joining in on the fun! And many thanks to Jennifer Gish for her help.

It's as simple as "pedestrians have the right of way in the crosswalk, so don't act like a jerk and try to run them over when they're in it" for drivers and "wait for the walk signal and cross at crosswalks so you don't hold up traffic like an idiot/get killed" for pedestrians. ...
