All About a Patty Melt

patty-melt

The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.

Anyway, Arby’s Off-The-Menu ‘Meat Mountain’ sandwich is $10 and contains 2 chicken tenders, 1.5 oz. of roast turkey, 1.5 oz. of ham, 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 1.5 oz. of corned beef, 1.5 oz. brisket, 1.5 oz. of Angus steak, 1 slice of cheddar cheese, 1.5 oz. roast beef, 3 half-strips of bacon.

Boot and Shoe in Lakeshore Oakland. I like that the food is pretty simple, pizza with great crust, salads that are properly dressed and not too fussy and sort of weird deserts that are good but not what I would normally get. The menu is not very big and changes slightly seasonally. You know pretty much everything on it is going to be good. The Margherita pizza is something we usually order and the Burrata appetizer is good when they have it. My lady (Nicole) and I like to go there at the end of a long week on the late side—it’s a nice atmosphere, busy but not insane, and the staff is always really nice. You can tell its a place that was really considered and not just dressed up to be fancy and they have some really nice art in there.”

Kate Moss’s Champagne Titty

kate-moss-champagne-glass-coupe-titty

In a tradition allegedly dating back to Marie Antoinette, a body part that we’ve seen thousands of times now has its own Champagne coupe modeled after it. That’s right, Kate Moss’s left breast has been the inspiration for the shape of this cup—moulded while the supermodel was pregnant for extra volume—by Lucien Freud’s daughter, British sculptor Jane McAdam Freud. Commissioned by Richard Caring’s Mayfair restaurant 34 to celebrate Moss’s 25 years of service in the fashion industry, the glass will be available for use beginning in October at 34 and its three sister restaurants across London. It’s without a doubt the closest you’ll ever get to partying with the fashion icon, and the only way to classily cop a feel.

The Burryman

burryman-whiskey

The key figure in the annual Burryman’s Parade, which takes place on the second Friday of August, in South Queensferry, Scotland. Tradition has it that a local man is covered from head to toe in burrs that he has collected, and paraded along a seven-mile route with stops at pubs, factories, and official’s houses. During each pause, the Burryman is given whisky to drink through a straw, and money, as tradition states “that he will bring good luck to the town if they give him whisky and money, and that bad luck will result if the custom is discontinued.” This year the festival was “ground to a halt” when the Burryman got a burr in his eye. Luckily, all that whisky helped ease his pain, but who knows about the luck of the town?
