This week is the hoped-for time for thein Great Barrington under its new owners, partners Laura Shack of Firefly Gastropub in Lenox and Ben Downing — not the state senator but a 32-year-old Great Barrington native.

Downing, with longtime good relationships in town, will manage the pub.

"We see ourselves as bringing back an icon," he said of the work he and Laura are doing on the restaurant previously known as 20 Railroad Street. "But we don't want to undo what's worked."

He said they will emphasize craft cocktails, craft beers and a wine list and, in January, when it will be quieter, they plan to add a wood fired pizza oven.

Their meats will all be hormone

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Lara Yeager-Crasselt's enthusiasm was palpable as she gestured to an image of a painting in her newly published book "Michael Sweerts (1618-1664): Shaping the Artist and the Academy in Rome and Brussels."

"This is called 'A Painter's Studio,' " Yeager-Crasselt said. "It was done when Sweerts was in Rome and shows how he approached the subject of artists at work 'with an exceptional degree of immediacy and complexity,' which distinguished him from his contemporaries."

Asked what motivated her to write a book about Sweerts, Yeager-Crasselt replied, "It happened by accident. In a graduate class, I

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Summer 2016 in Northern Berkshire will be filled with world-class art, music and theater.

Oh … and nudity.

The Clark Art Institute gave a sneak peek — pun intended — of its summer show titled "Splendor, Myth and Vision: Nudes from the Prado" on Wednesday evening during an event hosted by the North Adams Chamber of Commerce that invited several North County cultural institutions to share their upcoming seasons.

Halfway through the event, hosted by Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the Clark's director of communications Vicki Saltzman raised some eyebrows and elicited some giggles from the crowd of about 100 people when

More misses than hits in director Peter Atencio's "Keanu," a rambunctious action-comedy starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, suggest that the effort might best be enjoyed by fans of the duo's Comedy Central sketch series, "Key & Peele." Oddly, though, while unaware of the pair's cable TV fame and thus essentially a representative of the Great Unwashed, this admittedly easy chortler laughed much more than the supposed target audience with whom I viewed the movie.

Chez Nous Bistro, 150 Main St. in Lee, 413 243-6397, has reopened and they are still having fun for the next few weeks with their Thursday night Manger! Boire!/Eat! Drink! cooking demo and wine pairing tasting dinners at 6:30.

They start them about November until end-of-year holidays, pick them up again when the new year begins through the middle of February when they take their much needed vacation, then add another month and half of demos after they return in April.

If you remember from previous Tidbit columns, the two chef-owners, Franck Tessier and his wife Rachel Portnoy who is the pastry chef, present a small themed cooking lesson, share the evening's recipes, serve a full meal
