Weekend highlight: knocking back hot toddies with Mark Firth (co-founder of beloved Brooklyn restaurants, Diner and Marlow & Sons) at Bell & Anchor, his new farm-to-table restaurant in Great Barrington, MA.
If you’re planning a weekend road trip to the Berkshires, I’d highly recommend a visit - the food and atmosphere were divine, and every ingredient is gathered from Firth’s 80-acre farm nearby.

That time you won a bunch of sausage at the Brooklyn Based benefit, except you don’t eat meat.
Every Black Friday, retailers lure shoppers in the cold, predawn hours to wait in long lines with the promise of one-day-only deals that can’t be beat. And every year, shoppers ask themselves, “Is this really worth it?”
The answer, it turns out, is often no.
After Sandy had passed on Tuesday, Barrett and I wandered out into the East Village to survey the damage. You can’t see it here, but much of the FDR was flooded and blocked off by police cars. It definitely felt like the zombie apocalypse was nigh. I snapped this picture of Barrett walking on an empty strip of the FDR freeway, such a surreal sight.
This Tumblr is genius.
