Breakfast of Champions 8/11: Fringed out
How's your Fringe hangover? It sounds coarse to say we have the hair of the dog, but I like dogs, so there it is.
Start with out 2008 Fringe Guide from this week's cover. Move on to our blog reviews on Culture to Go, with takes on more than a dozen shows. For your pure photo satisfaction, there's a "images of the Fringe" photo slideshow with 30 shots of shows, scene and more, with images from after parties, performances, and our cover shoot.

In that Fringe slideshow are extra images from our cover models this past week, the ladies from Lili's Burlesque. For more burlesque, celebrate 5 years of Le Cirque Rouge with this slideshow from Friday's performance at Nick & Eddie.
Bradley Campbell offers a recap of the Ultimate Fighting Championship event this weekend, with photos by Daniel Corrigan. Expect more MMA coverage over the next two days.
The images of Irish Fair include boxing, rugby, cute kids, cure dogs and cute girls. Plus, Irish dance, music and even something liquor-related.
Potential Franken campaign spin for this: "Al Franken called a campaign stop for one veteran3, just to show the type of personal attention he'd give to each constituent if elected." There an additional Franken kerfluffle (Frankenfluffle?) involving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, but no more spin advice. I can't give that much gold out for free.

Election news, serious: Obama should use McCain's "President Putin of Germany" flub against him. Election news, silly: maybe he'll do so via text message.
