June 17 Morning Roundup

An abridged love letter to pie, the New York Times writes up Holy Land and its creative hummus, P.O.S. visits an NYC-based food videocast, Brewing TV visits Summit, the brewery list for the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest, South 12th drums up some good non-tonic-based gin cocktails, a friendly write-up in the Strib for the controversial Ringo, clarification on the Stella’s “$100 patio seat,” praise for the meatball sub at Savoy’s, and — finally — curvy brat buns have been invented. By a 9-year-old. In Wisconsin, of course.
