A look at what we're reading, cooking, and eating this weekend.
• One of the things I miss most about my hometown of Cincinnati is the tenacity of its local restaurant rivalries. The latest battle, as reported by the WSJ
, pitting the pumpkin pie offered at legendary Cincinnati bakery Busken against that of regional Big Boy chain, Frisch's, heats up with competing billboards (pictured). Despite growing up in the supermarket-strewn '80s, I have 1950s-style memories of driving around town with mom in her battered Pontiac station wagon, first to Summit Meats, then to Busken for freshly baked bread, danish, and, if I was lucky, one of their deliciously cakey iced cookies. While I've never tasted neither Busken nor Frisch's pumpkin pie, nostalgia gives Busken the clear home-field advantage. —Keith Pandolfi
