Rome Calling -- If you haven't been over to the MAC yet to check out their stunning "Young America: Treasures from the Smithsonian Art Museum" exhibit, perhaps this weekend's Lunchbox Lecture might entice you. Barbara Groseclose, professor of art history at Ohio State University, will present a talk on how American artists turned to Italy for inspiration in the mid-19th century. Such paintings as Jasper Francis Cropsey's The Coast of Genoa and Daniel Huntington's Italy demonstrate the influence of both sunny Italy and its older, richer artistic traditions on Yankee painters who had the wherewithal to cross the Atlantic for art's sake. Lecture attendees can bring a sack lunch or order one in advance from the Caf & eacute; MAC. We're thinking a little bit of Italy is just the thing for a cold, gray Saturday afternoon. Call: 363-5325 for more information.





Grouse All You Want -- The only thing better than fresh, delicious poultry or red meat is fresh delicious poultry or red meat you stalk and kill with your own two hands. Okay -- maybe we're scaring you. But anyone who's enjoyed grouse with a sour cream and mushroom sauce or feasted on marinated venison steak knows what we're talking about. And now, North Idaho College makes it easy for you to sample such Northwest cuisine with their fourth annual Wild Game Feast, this Saturday night at the Coeur d'Alene Inn. Chefs Rod Jessick, Gene Tillman and Bill Rutherford have whipped up a menu that includes smoked Idaho ruby red trout, sesame crusted emu, salad with duck breast and currants, wild boar loin chops, grilled quail and rabbit sausage. Tickets are $50 ($45 for alumni). Best of all, you won't have to mess with cleaning and oiling the ol' muzzle-loader.





City of Broad Shoulders -- The Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre has just announced their 2003 Summer Season lineup and we were rather amused to see that after their season opener, Annie, they're taking on the sizzling Broadway musical (and equally sizzling motion picture) Chicago. We don't know who they've signed up to play the dueling diva duo of Velma Kelley and Roxie Hart, but here in the Buzz Bin, we think Ellen Travolta and Patty Duke could pull off a righteous Dynasty-worthy summer stock catfight!





Passing of the Whisk -- There have been some big changes down at Quinn's this year, and this weekend was the capper. Chef Kile Tansy is "passing the whisk" on to new chef David Goldman (who launches his new menu this week); Tansy will continue in an ownership capacity. Best wishes, Kile, and kudos for making Quinn's such a great little night spot!
