Pork is a great substitute for traditional chicken dishes that can get repetitive and boring. For this dish, garlic, shallots, and dried plums (which add a sweet zest to the sauce) compliment each other and are absorbed by the pork chops. This is a quick and easy recipe that will please all!

The year 2010 is already history, (and hopefully so are any other Justin Biebers and Miley Cyruses out there in the world), but that’s no excuse for a break from new, artistic talents and experimental, innovative albums. The following artists are certainly no strangers to the music scene and presumably not to your ears either. Their latest and upcoming projects will have you craving and raving for more.

Umphrey’s McGee, a Chicago-based progressive jam-band renowned for their spontaneous, three-hour live sessions, will play the State Theatre on Wednesday, February 2nd at 9pm. In the past, Umphrey’s McGee has played multiple summer festivals such as Bonnaroo, Rothbury, All Good, and Lollapalooza. They’ve also done numerous European tours. Already moving full-throttle in their 2011 Winter Tour, the six-member “improg” group of virtuosity has an enormous and eclectic selection of songs to unveil before the mostly student-based body.

Last week, Forks Over Knives premiered to a sold-out crowd at the State Theatre in State College. Listen to what your community had to say about the film’s claim that eating the right food can control or even reverse diseases like cancer and diabetes.

Last Saturday night, the concert hall of Café 210 West was packed with people to see Dave Joyce and the Slow Pitch Band perform. The audience seemed receptive to the performance for the most part. But overall, as with most late-night weekend bar shows, it functioned only as a soundtrack to a night of good times in downtown State College.

Who: Dave Joyce and the Slow Pitch Band
When: Saturday, January 22 at 10:30pm
Where: Cafe 210
This State College-based band fronted by vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist Dave Joyce is set to perform this Saturday, January 22nd at Café 210 West. Starting at 10:30pm and scheduled to end at 1:30am (according to their Facebook page), Joyce and Co. are sure to present a mixture of original songs, classic covers, and pop reinventions. The band comes into this gig hot after their shared conquest of the THON Band Bash last week. Along with co-winner 5 Cherry Lewis, the alternative-rock group will have the honor of playing at the THON Dance Marathon this February.
So stop by Café 210 West tonight to get a sneak preview of the music you’ll be dancing to next month!

It’s 10:20pm on Saturday, January 15th, and there’s a hustle and bustle of movement going on inside Café 210. Thankfully it is not a suffocating, immobile mass of raging Go Go Gadget fans forming. Rather it’s a gathering of smiling faces composed of local old timers, couples both young and old, and amiable, rock-steady college students.
The diverse audience is patiently waiting for State College’s oldest reggae enthusiasts, The Earthtones, to finish setting up their equipment. They’re anticipating a night of dancing, shouting, and grooving to harmonious reggae classics. Rodney Thompson, commonly known as RT, is the face and singer of the band. He remains the only original Earthtones member since its formation in State College in 1989.

So 2010 has come and passed, leaving us with a variety of musicians who may be nobodies when the next music phenomena hit. But if Ke$ha and Lady Gaga can maintain their weirdo facades for another album, and Lil’ Wayne and T.I. can stay out of prison (whoops, nevermind T.I.), maybe 2011 will shine as another great year for the music industry.

Pears are sweet and juicy and provide a bright note to cold weather meals. They pair nicely with pungent and creamy cheeses, caramelized onions, and walnuts — all of which have a place on this pizza.
What’s on your January pizza?
