Five years after Tan Le was recognized in 1998 as Young Australian of the Year, she found herself at a career crossroad. She had been trained as a lawyer, done a stint as an entrepreneur and was also a community advocate.

But she was seeking a lifelong endeavor. “I wanted to find something that wasn't just a short stint or exciting for a few years,” recalled Le. And she found her calling in studying the human brain.

Two thousand T-shirts, cartons of nippies and pasties, scores of sequined gowns, a rainbow of tutus and stacks of faded Levis will relocate in time for the New Year as Old Gold, a Burlington sartorial landmark, decamps to Cherry Street.

The vintage clothing store and costume shop, whose window mannequins enliven Main Street, is moving from the jam-packed, jaw-dropping space it has occupied since 1977. The store's lease at 180 Main Street will end on December 31, Old Gold owner Karin Eisenberg told Seven Days. She will move her business to 153 Cherry Street — the onetime home of the B Side skate shop — and open there on January 2, 2019.

Dreams do come true.

Finally, after months of anxious waiting, certain Vermonters were blessed with a preview of the new Target store at the University Mall in South Burlington. On Tuesday evening, a select group of media personalities and other individuals — let's call them "the Chosen Ones" — were invited to attend a special friends-and-family early-access event to bask in the glory of all that is Target.

National Book Award Finalists Have Ties to Vermont College of Fine Arts, Dartmouth

Last month, I wrote about how Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier has been cleaning up when it comes to literary honors, producing a wealth of National Book Award winners and finalists. Seems this year is no exception. Yesterday, the college announced that two more of its affiliates are finalists in the prestigious competition.

Poet Terrance Hayes, a past National Book Award winner and a MacArthur Fellow, will be a guest writer at the college's MFA in Writing program this December. A finalist for American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin, written during the first 200 days of the Trump presidency, he's the artist-in-residence at New York University.

Closer to home, East Calais young-adult author M.T. Anderson is also no stranger to the NBA roster: He won for The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume 1: The Pox Party in 2006 and was a finalist for Feed in 2002.

The long-running NBC sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" opened its 44th season on Saturday with actor Adam Driver as host and musical guest Kanye West. Alongside bits on the Kavanaugh hearings and the video game Fortnite — as well as an impromptu speech by West in support of President Trump that didn't air in the original live broadcast — was a sketch that lampooned Vermont, the second whitest state in the country, for its lack of diversity.
