NOISEMAKER: Adam Lambert may have lost the Idol title to babyfaced coffeehouse-music plucker Kris Allen, but when it comes to bringing it live, there’s no contest. When Glambert takes the Nokia Thatre stage tonight, expect the following, in no particular order: sequins, tight pants, guyliner, catchy songs, bombastic arrangements, channeling of Freddie Mercury, behavior that gets you bleeped by the FCC. And seriously badass vocal talent. Can’t wait. (Equally talented also-ran Alison Iraheta opens.) .
PROOF: Her book The Boozy Baker: 75 Recipes for Spirited Sweets doesn’t come out until the fall (damn you, slow dead-tree media!) (CORRECTION: The book is out now from Running Press), but food writer Lucy Baker (Edible Brooklyn) comes to Greenpoint’s Word bookstore with a preview of her cookbook of sweet, liquored-up treats. Serious Eats’ Caroline Russock chats with Baker, and there’ll quite naturally be some boozified baked goods on hand. .
