If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? That all depends. If it's a rich black walnut tree that ends up in the workshop of Princeton Audio where they design, engineer and build these beautiful hi-fi Bluetooth speakers by hand from said wood. Then yes, many wonderful sounds.
Things to do for November 15, 2017
Roy Choi Wants to Make You Pizza
And the Natural History Museum Wants to Tattoo YouBy Hadley Tomicki
More Whiskey Than Is Probably Reasonable
The Whiskey Extravaganza. It's a night of endless whiskey tastings happening tomorrow in Downtown, full of prized scotches and whiskeys from all over the world. We're telling you now so you can remember it the next day.
A Vulture Festival to Call Our Own
New York. It's all about LA these days. Exhibit Q: New York Magazine's Vulture Festival, which takes over the city this weekend with celebrity-laden panels, TV show and movie premieres and scattered parties. Whether or not it leaves probably depends on the weather.
Roy Choi Gets Heavily Into Pizza
Something's new at the Line Hotel. It's Roy Choi's Pot Pizza Joint, a weekend-only spot serving gooey, saucy, thin-crusted, square-shaped, deep-dish pizza slices to one and all. Great. Now we're all out of adjectives.
The Natural History Museum Gets Inked Up
Soon, the Natural History Museum will have its own tattoo parlor. It's probably because there's a huge exhibit on the history of tattooing kicking off there on Sunday. Or maybe they just have a really deluded curator.
Fried Chicken Sunday Should Be a National Holiday
The weekend's all but shot. Work is pending. Sunday night is the disease, and Jason Fullilove is the cure. The chef is preparing family-style fried chicken dinners with all the fixings—greens, mac and cheese, biscuits, fried okra and dipping sauces—to see each Sunday through its untimely end. Always untimely.
What Else Is New
Blake Shelton Is an Abomination of the Concept of the Sexiest Man Alive
So says one writer, who has suspiciously strong opinions on the matter. In other news: we tried out Steven Soderbergh's new interactive storytelling app, Mosaic, to mixed results. And we also found you the Napa Valley of weed. You're welcome.
