On The Most Correct Way to Grill Vegetables on a Stick

So, if you're not going to serve the veggies on a skewer, why not just use a grill pan/basket (or two) and make it easier on yourself? Nothing says you can't sauté mushrooms and peppers and onions together on a stovetop, so use a grill pan or piastra without the hassle/pretense of the skewer. The flavors integrate, and you can maintain hot and cool sides of the pan to manage different finishing times.

That said! Thick slices of onion do OK on bamboo skewers: use two skewers to prevent them from spinning when you turn them.

On Say What You Mean, New York Post

I imagine the catcall stretches back to ancient construction times, when the Israelites were building the pyramids, with scores of single Jewish women hiking up their loincloths, hoping for a little attention.

This is some next-level trolling. Bravo.

My favorite greenmarket farm is in New Paltz. Whenever I visit, I see fellow Brooklynites and their Zipcars by the dozen.

On Who Will Disrupt the Public Good?

Just because some VC says "Uber, but for parking spaces!" in the lobby of a TED talk doesn't mean we need a video about it.

@Clarence Rosario Hey, it's EXACTLY like the newsletter! I sent an email, and have yet to receive anything in return.

So much for that $250. :-(
