Posted By on Sat, May 23, 2009 at 9:04 AM

Here we go again: The week is over — which means it's time for Creative Loafing to rewind the best, worst and weirdest stuff we covered since last Sunday. Here's a look at what we turned up:

• We snapped some pics at the much-too-crowded Speed Street.

• We debuted our big Summer Guide '09. Whew! It was a lot of work!

• Resident Food Blogger Priscilla Tsai got pissed during a trip to Basil, the new Thai place in Uptown.

• We paid a visit to the new Central Coffee Co. in Plaza Midwood and snapped a few pics. Cute place.

• Speaking of checking out new spots in Plaza Midwood, our nightlife writer — Brittney Cason — took a peek inside the new eatery/lounge Soul Gastrolounge.

• Looks like we won't be providing a review for Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Here's why ...

• But it looks like Matt did get to review the new Terminator flick.

• We uncovered the truth behind Rush Limbaugh's anal fixation.

• Columnist/blogger John Grooms tackled a ton of issues this week, including: Richard Burr's healthcare scam, er, plan; his offer to buy the Bobcats; video of crazy broadcaster Nancy Grace getting the smackdown; and Councilman Dulin's lousy vision for Charlotte, among many other hot topics.

• Two takes on The Color Purple musical, which hit town this week: Here ... and here.

• A few tips on what do — in the bedroom — for Memorial Day.

• Four people got shot at a strip club this week.

• More anal sex content! Maybe we are the ones with the fixation on the rectum!

• There's a big sidewalk sale this Saturday at Manifest.

• Who are the Stiletto Girls?

• Niche unveiled a T-shirt design contest.

Funny-ass video: "... where black people and white people buy furniture."

• Tweets by Louis Vuitton.

• The local band The Stellas blogged from Asia.

• And ... Clay Aiken vs. Adam Lambert?
