Lucy Gellman Photo Lifting a creamy, crumbling slice of Roquefort, Elm City Market’s Robin Williams had a love story to tell. It went like this: Once upon a time, in the dry, dark caves tucked away in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, a shepherd was nibbling his chunk of bread and ewe’s milk cheese and watching his sheep when a lady shepherd walked by.

DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTOS It was a close shave for some firefighters, police and civilians who dared “brave the shave,” losing their locks to a phalanx of hair stylists as part of the annual St. Baldrick’s childhood cancer research fundraiser held at Pitkin Plaza’s Trinity Bar — formerly O’Tooles — the site of previous St. Baldrick’s events.

A cut of a European sea bass called Branzino sunned itself on the glinting, clean countertop, as its foodie friends – old and trusted (salt, sliced potatoes, olive oil, cream) and some newer (crispy quinoa, fried capers, rosemary-soaked, flame-licked baby tomatoes) – stood at the ready in small white dishes.
