Best of St. Louis, September 27, 2007Long live Provel: The RFT did a hatchet job on the creamy deliciousness of Provel in the backhanded award "Best Use of the Worst Cheese." The assertion that St. Louis-style pizza has no adherents outside of the metro area just shows bad reporting. There are a number of Provel-using establishments outside St. Louis that are fabulous, such as Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, which was featured on the Food Network. Another is Fifth Avenue Pizza in Alma, Texas. Both eateries have courted their share of success with the thin pies, to say nothing of the expatriates around the country like myself who invite friends over to our homes for a taste of one of our city's many culinary innovations.
Give it up, Provel haters. Why don't you move on to brain sandwiches or meat boiled in barbecue sauce — things that truly deserve your snot-nosed scrutiny?

A new comedy club, Laughs on the Landing, is open downtown, and that has become quite a point of contention and bitterness among some local comics. Some alternative venues in the city are starting to take shape. Harry's off Kingshighway has a comedy show on Thursday night, which offers rough and edgy humor that might not be presented in a sanitized environment like the Funny Bone at Westport.
Even though the RFT covers a city that is full of professional funny people, the only two comedians recently featured have been the unfunny Brie Johnson and Yakov Smirnoff. So to be covered by the RFT, a comedian either has to be an unsuccessful model willing to look ridiculous by posing topless or a sad, washed-up has-been, entertaining the blue-hairs in Branson.

Riverfront Times' editorial department is looking for a painstakingly literate smarty-pants to pinch hit as a proofreader and also to help us maintain our listings database. This part-time position includes a quarterly component heavy on the phone calls, as well as a goodly portion of crucial — if not exactly glamorous — data-entry work. On the other hand, it provides the proverbial Foot in the Door. Applicants must be willing to submit to our legendary copy-editing test, which has reduced many a linguistic whiz to incoherent, tearful blubbering.
E-mail resume and propeller beanie size to email@example.com, or mail to:
6358 Delmar Boulevard, Suite 200

No phone calls, please!
