The Westword.com blog shortcut, September 23 edition

Ask a Mexican's Gustavo Arellano is asking.

There's no place like the home page -- but these blogs are pretty nice, too.

Cafe Society asks readers to offer advice about where Ask a Mexican columnist Gustavo Arellano should eat Mexican food during his Colorado visit this week. Also on tap: the closure of The Supreme Court (no, not that Supreme Court) and Patricia Calhoun's suggestion that Chipotle hire Adam Cayton-Holland as its new ad man. Curses: foiled again.

The Cat's Pajamas touts a cheap, easy fashion website -- sounds a lot like this one. And Backbeat Online spills about The Pirate Signal's addition to the 3Oh!3 tour, the unexpected connection between Git Some and Hot Topic, the timely return of Fight Like Hell, a series of 45-second reviews featuring Stereolab and Shwayze, and, finally, a special offer from the Asbestos Tampons. Sounds absorbing. -- Michael Roberts
