Types of American cheese to try

American cheese is more often the butt of the joke than the centerpiece of a cheeseboard. It conjures thoughts of yellow squares in flimsy plastic — great for burgers and melting on sandwiches like grilled cheeses and tuna melts, terrible for nearly anything else. Instead, people in the United States often defer to European cheesemakers in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Ireland for the fancy stuff. While those imported cheeses have an admirable reputation, homegrown American cheese deserves ...

Well, this is one of these revisits that I feel went against my fond memories of the film. Can’t say I really enjoyed it as much as I thought I would. I think the biggest offender is Chevy Chase, whose character here just annoyed me — nothing he does makes any sense, and even worse, it’s just not really funny. Murray is wacky, but it’s not all that funny either as it’s too cartoony. Sure, it has its moments here and there, but overall it was a disappointment.

Bill Murray, Guy Fieri nacho contest

Guy Fieri is really stepping up to help support laid-off restaurant workers during the coronavirus pandemic. He recently raised $20 million for an unemployed restaurant workers relief fund, and now he’s going to battle cinematic icon Bill Murray for charity — but don’t worry, this fight will determine who can make the best, most epic platter of nachos. With the help of their sons, Hunter Fieri and Homer Murray, the two television icons will take to Food Network in a competition to see who ma...

LGBTQ landmarks

From the very first queer magazine to significant protests for LGBTQ freedom of expression, there are a number of buildings around the United States that are still standing as testaments to the history of the LGBTQIA+ community. Though it seems now like a world so far out of our grasp, there was once a time when members of the queer community could not even assemble for a few beers in peace. In fact, in a not-so-distant past, “social justice” did not appear to be in the realm of possibility f...

Overlooked wine and cheese pairings

Wine and cheese is a classic, if very Eurocentric, combination. It’s talked about extensively by pretty much anyone who’s a fan of fine dining, and wine and cheese pairings are served everywhere from at-home wine parties to the fanciest wineries and restaurants. All the attention is for good reason. Tart or juicy wine is the best companion to a fatty, creamy cheese. Plus, few things can bring as much joy as either of these things on their own, so putting them together only seems right. It’s e...

How to Eat in New York City on a Budget

Posted: 10/29/2018 | October 29th, 2018 New York City has a reputation for being one of the most expensive dining destinations in the world. It’s easy to wander into high-end restaurants without realizing it and walk away with the idea that dining out in NYC is wallet busting. And while it is true that New York is home to a lot of $500 set-menu restaurants and restaurants where a “nice” “simple” dinner with wine can top $100, the city is also home to starving artists, working-class folks, and ...
