And that adult is me. This is the first in a series of videos in which I, at the age of 27, try a bunch of foods I have never eaten before, including pineapple, cheesecake, apple pie and raisins.
Are you, fellow New York commuter, following the correct New York Subway social media account? The answer may surprise you.
I took a trip to the grocery store last night after work, much like the scenario presented in David Foster Wallace’s famous Kenyon College commencement speech “This Is Water,” and a treat caught my eye. Have you ever seen it before? I had not.
Coffee played an integral role in the early-2000s mother-daughter psychodrama Gilmore Girls, and Luke Danes, the town’s dinerman, was its primary purveyor. Much was made throughout the series about how Luke brewed “the best coffee in town,” but was his coffee really any good? Hmm. A great question.
There are lots of ways to make sophisticated and delicious chicken salad. This is not one of those ways. This is problem-solving: It is morning, and you need to pack a lunch off to school or camp, and the school or camp is peanut-free. Luckily, for these purposes, this is the kind of week where you’re already falling…
Here’s a riddle: How can a pocket be empty and still have something in it? The answer is that it can have a hole in it. Got you there. Unlike this riddle, what I’m about to suggest is not a brain bender. It’s jalapeño and pineapple pizza, simply an incredible pizza for you.
Here’s a thought: Put basil on your egg sandwich.
Late at night, you may sometimes find yourself being tugged in two directions by the small and insistent hole growing in your stomach. Maybe you want a sweet treat before you lay your head down to sleep. But maybe you want something more substantial—not just the goodnight kiss of a morsel of chocolate, but what Taco…
The New York Times reports on a new trend in teen drinking across the pond: Young Brits have recently been consuming a kind of caffeinated wine called “Buckie” with wild abandon. The drink has become so popular that the Scottish Parliament is considering banning it to keep it out of their country.
Last night I was at the gym, going through that old sham, leg-walloping the elliptical, sweating big ol’ bullets and watching an episode of Seinfeld on the crummy LCD (I usually watch Food Network but I realized how bleak that looks to others). It was then that I realized I was there to look like him.
While Mother Jones certainly has the right to get out from under their image as the resting place of old potatoes on your weirdest uncle’s kitchen table, it is interesting to see that one of the ways they’re moving toward A New Tomorrow is by aggregating a video called EXPENSIVE WINE IS FOR SUCKERS put together by the…
Do you have a sunburn? You dummy.
Some people are great at parties—they know exactly when to arrive, how much to drink, and, most importantly, when to leave. Me, I’ve arrived so early I’ve had to devein shrimp, I’ve laughed wet bursts of wine onto people’s faces, I’ve tucked hosts into bed at evening’s end.
I swear to god if I hear another person talk about how perfectly robust and oaky their merlot is I’m gonna scream!!!!!
Are you in a long-term relationship that involves cohabitating with one or more other human beings? Do you aspire to be in this kind of relationship, and possibly even avoid dying alone? Cool. Do you have a dishwasher? Because friend, you’re gonna need it.
Hey Jeff—great meal. Just great. Well, it’s all done. What’s that? Did you say it’s time to “load the dishwasher?” Sorry Jeff—I now think you’re not very smart at all.
Here’s the thing about nature: It will fuck up your shit.
“Mmm, that looks good.”<— Don’t do this.
A bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich can be many things: good, bad, cheap, expensive, readily available, rare, redemptive, a thing to argue about endlessly with respected colleagues. It is not, however, a “secret handshake that New Yorkers exchange” or anything else that Pete Wells describes it as in his recent…
