ONE WORD: PLASTICSCarolyn Kormann mentions a number of efforts to reduce plastic pollution in her article on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch: the nationwide ban on microbeads, California’s restrictions on plastic straws, and Lego’s introduction of a “new plant-based form of plastic” (“The Widening Gyre,” February 4th). It’s true that Lego now uses a plant-based polyethylene plastic for a small percentage of its pieces, but it’s misleading for Kormann to compare this to banning microbeads and straws. “Plant-based” does not mean “biodegradable.” In this case, it means that the ethanol used in production comes from sugarcane rather than from petroleum. Lego’s new plastic is otherwise similar to that used in traditional polyethylene products, and will break down into the same kind of microplastic as that currently swirling in the world’s…

goings on about town: this week

The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo is too often reduced to a pop-culture cliché—her likeness appears on products from tote bags to cake toppers. Starting Feb. 8, the Brooklyn Museum reaffirms her complexity, in the exhibition “Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving.” Her indelible self-portraits on canvas are joined—for the first time in the U.S.—by a selection of the Tehuana garments and jewelry with which the artist cannily constructed her public persona—a reminder that, in Kahlo’s case, style was substance.NIGHT LIFEMusicians and night-club proprietors lead complicated lives; it’s advisable to check in advance to confirm engagements.Christian Scott aTunde AdjuahBlue NoteThe trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah was born in 1983, a fact worth noting when it comes to appreciating why the sonic permutations of hip-hop—the genre he grew up with—are second nature…

tables for two: hudson & charles dinette

According to conventional wisdom, a great butcher is one who will not only sell you meat but also tell you how to cook it. Might it stand to reason, then, that the very best butcher is one who will go so far as to actually cook it for you? At Hudson & Charles Dinette, a new restaurant in the West Village, you can test this supposition: it’s an extension of Hudson & Charles Meats, next door, which opened in 2013 and expanded to the Upper West Side in 2016.In an age in which stand-alone butchers are starting to feel like relics, and the ethics of meat-eating have never been under sharper scrutiny, Hudson & Charles is part of a small group (see also: Fleishers, Dickson’s Farmstand, the Meat Hook, Marlow…

comment: not working

If, like Donald Trump, you divide the world into winners and losers, into deal-closing masters of the universe and their patsies, then, after the events of recent days, you would surely place Trump himself in the category he reviles. Last week, he was publicly sparring with his own intelligence chiefs and getting an official rebuke from Senate Republicans for the nature of his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan. None of that is likely to have improved his mood as he prepared for the State of the Union address, on Tuesday, after it had been postponed by a week. That delay was due to the fact that Nancy Pelosi had triumphed in her first confrontation with the President since resuming her role as the Speaker of the…

hell, yes: the rules

On a freezing Friday night, a group of partygoers in winter coats huddled under a heat lamp at the entryway of House of Yes, the night club, event space, and self-described “temple of expression” in Bushwick. The evening’s event was House of Love, a monthly party for the sexually adventurous. Costumes were mandatory, but most patrons had just come to dance with their friends. (“This party is Rated R … not X. If you know what we mean,” the invitation read.) Tickets had sold out, as they usually do, but first one had to get past the consenticorn.The consenticorn, a kind of dancefloor monitor, wore a long fur coat and a light-up unicorn horn, and stood before a table bearing free New York City Department of Health-brand condoms, ready to…
