Tim Gunn and Andrae go on a date to Red Lobster

Tonight’s that first dreaded night: A Wednesday evening without Project Runway. We’ll probably have to wait another nine months for the show to return.

But the show’s web site offers some things to keep us busy until then, or at least for the next five minutes. Besides Kara’s decoy fashion show, the site also has Tim Gunn’s blog, and he “continues to blog his way to season three,” so we’ll have some regularly updated doses of Tim.

But the site’s best feature right now is a photographic essay featuring–hold your breath–Tim and Andrae at Red Lobster. At least, they’re outside a Red Lobster, posing for pictures with Santino. The site says that “Tim and Andrae do love Red Lobster… and so does Santino.” The only thing missing is a downloadable ringtone of Santino saying, in Tim’s voice, “On-dray.”

Verlox from The Quest

A review of the finale of summer's best reality series, which wasn't always perfect but was thoroughly entertaining right down to the finish, which included phenomenal challenges and special effects. Will ABC give it a second season?

Plus: an interview with the actor who played Verlox and the ogre.
