The blog shortcut, September 12 edition

Step into style.

May the blogs be with you.

Just in time for a soggy Friday, The Cat's Pajamas delivers Susan Froyd's guide to the most fetching boots to wear in the rain. Meanwhile, Cafe Society previews a Saturday event at Seven Cups -- and the Candy Girls sample Satellite Wafers. These sweets didn't exactly put them into orbit.

What about Backbeat Online? Westword's music gurus present a live review of Richie Hawtin at Beta and Quibian Salazar-Moreno's regular Friday Rap-Up. Which will get you more than ready for the weekend. -- Michael Roberts
