The Blog Shortcut, July 3 Edition

Celebrate early with these selections from Westword's other blogs.

In Cafe Society, restaurant reviewer Jason Sheehan visits Hell's Kitchen. Hot stuff. Demver includes a Q&A with senatorial candidate Mark Udall and Teague Bohlen's takedown of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, who's a supporter of intelligent design. Wise up. Backbeat Online delivers reviews of new recordings by the Offspring and Vanessa Hudgens, of High School Musical fame. It's Disney-tastic! And The Cat's Pajama's examines American Girl. Get your mind out of the gutter. -- Michael Roberts
