Stan Yan: A Kickstarter Campaign Could Bring Zombies Out of the Basement

Denver blogs know that you're never too young to love zombies.

On Arts, Cory Casciato reports on the Kickstarter that local cartoonist Stan Yan will launch this weekend, to cover the cost of publishing There's a Zombie in the Basement, a book that should be a monstrous hit for children and parents alike.

On Food, Mark Antonation tells you how you can get a taste of the most expensive truffle in the world, the tuber magnatum from the Piedmont region of Italy, which Panzano chef Elise Wiggins had shipped here at a cost of $3,163 — for one pound.

And on, veteran reporter Art Kane takes a tough look at how Happy Haynes is dividing her time between the Denver School Board (she's running for re-election on November 3) and her new gig as head of the Denver Department of Parks and Recreation.
