Some decisions are obvious. Any visual or performing arts event within the four- county area is a slam dunk. The original mission of the Scene was to serve the local arts community, which has grown by leaps and bounds even just since this publication launched in 2010. (We won't celebrate our fourth birthday in October, but feel free to send gifts now. Chocolate is always appreciated.) Food and drink is another area I feel con- fident including in the Scene. Profiles of local restaurants, restaurateurs, bartend- ers, brewmasters and others of their ilk have been part of this publication since Day One. And we're proud to announce that this month heralds the return of Local Eats, a column profiling area restaurants — with a twist. This time around, Local Eats is dedicated to finding those out-of- the-way diamonds in the rough (is that redundant?) that might not be on your radar. You can check it out on Page 7. And be sure to let us know if you have any suggestions for a restaurant we should feature. Then there are things like the Museum Skateboard Competition, this month's cover story (check it out on Pages 8-9). It's not what you would call art; it's kind of en- tertainment, but it's also sort of sports. (It's definitely not food.) Technically, it doesn't fall into the narrow definition of what the Scene is all about. And yet it feels like the right fit. We've done stories about roller derby, haunted houses, gardening, mud runs, hair salons and swimming pools, so why not skateboarding? As summer cranks along (how did it get to be July already?), we're hustling to keep up with everything that's going on. You can get a glimpse of what's to come this month on Pages 13-14, but keep checking our Facebook as we bring you updates on events that might not have made it to us by our press deadline. And if you'd like your August (or September, or October, or May of 2016 — whatever) event featured in the Scene, drop us a line at arts@thedailystar. com. Happy summer!
