Issue: August 22, 2013

Welcome to this week's SN&R!

On the cover: Joshua Wood has had a good week. On Friday, he gave a kiss of death to Sacramento's arena opposition--he lead the charge to reveal Chris Hansen and financier of the anti-arena signature-gathering effort. And on Tuesday, his battle for more Walmarts succeeded with a city council vote overturning the superstore ordinance. But wait: Who is this 31-year-old up-and-comer? And why is he so he's polarizing, even feared, but also admired? Find out by reading Raheem F. Hosseini's cover story.

Also this week: Summer fashion, dogs and beer, Turkish food in Midtown and more.

Thanks for reading!
