Instant Grit

The Blog of the Week is... The Professional's Guide to Surviving the School Year by Jon Yarian. With his trademark charm—and by "charm," we mean wry humor and random bursts of disdain—Jon boldly suggested we all stop trying to do all the things we think we can still do come college season (park, dine, conduct ourselves with dignity). Here's an excerpt:


"Fighting your way through a cluster of Kappa Sigmas only to find yourself in a four-deep scrum at the bar inside The Ordinary is bad for business. Make a reservation at Al di La or Red Drum, get a car, and dine like a grown-up."


It was part of our week-long "Crib Sheets" Back to School series. If you missed any of them, here's a round-up


And how about this for a fun Friday video? We saw this making the rounds on Facebook—a local handbag designer with a clever marketing approach. Then again... handbags, shmandbags, it's got a Grit blogger getting lucky in a game of Spin the Bottle. We know how to pick 'em.
