editor’s letter

IT’S OKAY TO CHEAT THE FIRST THING I DO when I arrive at the office every Monday morning is ask my assistant, Amiel, what he got up to over the weekend. Amiel is 25, worked in a bar before taking this gig, and now lives in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, with four roommates. Except Amiel never tells me about what bands he saw or clubs he went to; instead, he tells me what he cooked. There was the time he went to a butcher and bought some lamb heads so he could make tacos—which is not to be confused with the time he picked up some fish heads in Chinatown for a fish-cheek pasta sauce. I can relate to Amiel; I just can’t cook like he does. I’m 44, not 25. I’ve got a wife, a…

the ba arsenal hot potato

Growing up. Baked Potato Night was an event. Every two weeks, my mom would let me stab three potatoes with a fork and rub them with Crisco. While they roasted, the skins would get crunchy and the insides as soft as goose down. Only four toppings were allowed: butter (the more, the better), sour cream (no thanks), and salt and pepper. It’s still the most satisfyingly simple meal I know. These days I toss the spuds in olive oil, Maldon sea salt, and freshly ground pepper before roasting them at 350 degrees for an hour or so. Sour cream still isn’t part of my program—just good butter and the occasional shower of hard cheese. Fancy meals come and go, but Baked Potato Night lives on.…

Skip the Kitsch “I do not decorate the house, and I’m not into team jerseys or the cakes and cupcakes shaped like footballs and goalposts. We all know we’re here to watch a football game.” Party Everywhere “It’s important to give people space to spread out—don’t crowd everyone in front of one TV. I have a 103-inch flat-screen in the main room, a TV in my kitchen, a TV in the backyard…” Chill in Margaritaville “I bought a Margarita machine at Costco. Not one of those little Jimmy Buffett ones, but like the big ones you see mixing horchata at Mexican restaurants. I fill that and set up a bar and a keg; it seems to suffice.” Teach the Kids to Gamble “I draw a grid on poster board and everyone buys a spot for $10. I…
