5 Tips for the Best Barbecue of Your Life

On July 4, 1776, some of America's greatest men signed and adopted the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming us free from our British brethren and asserting our right to sovereignty and self-determination; 239 years later, we celebrate the momentous occasion by waving mini flags, donning red, white, and blue, shooting explosives into the air, and throwing slabs of meat over fires. Logic doesn't really apply to celebrations. It doesn't really apply to barbecuing, either. On paper, it seems so easy. Put some meat on a hot grill, let it sit, turn it over, then take it off and scarf it see more

Don't Like Fajitas? The Country's Best Chefs Want to Change Your Mind

Javelina's skirt-steak fajitas The most maligned dish in America? It has to be fajitas. Sizzling meats and vegetables in flour tortillas topped with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa should always kick ass: In theory, they're the perfect union of hot and cold and sweet and savory, and you get to control the proportions. Yet the last time you ordered them, you jokingly called them fuh-JAI-tuhs when you were on a layover. The meat? Tasteless. The vegetables? Griddled to a watery mess. Your server? Possibly sporting flair. see more

Why Everyone Is Suddenly Drinking Matcha Tea

When it comes to buzzy energy drinks, green (tea) is the new black (coffee). Matcha, a type of green tea made by whisking finely powdered whole tea leaves, is taking over cafes in New York, San Francisco, Boston, and more thanks in part to its high antioxidant content and roots in Far East rituals. With a Brooklyn cafe dedicating its menu to the vibrant green drink to models drinking matcha shots during Fashion Week, you could call it the latest "It" accessory, but that's a lot of new attention for a drink that's been around for centuries. The tea dates see more

Jeb Bush Slow-Jams the News With Jimmy Fallon

Well, this was certainly unexpected. Shortly after announcing his bid to run for president in the 2016 election (on Snapchat!), Governor Jeb Bush found himself on The Tonight Show, slow-jamming the news for Jimmy Fallon. Oh, the things some people will do to potentially run this fair country of ours. While Jeb was wooden and a bit creepy, the gag did allow Fallon and house-band member Tariq to drop phrases like "caucus tease" and "master debater" (get it?), which was worth the price of admission, really. see more

One Bar's Refreshing Antidote to the Fussy-Cocktail Scene

Be honest: Do you actually prefer cocktails that feature ingredients you've never heard of? Do you believe that the longer it takes to make a drink, the better it is? Of course not. And yet, more and more bars flaunt their fastidious techniques and laborious sourcing of local flora. But great cocktails don't need to be fussy. At the Holiday Cocktail Lounge, a newly reopened East Village dive bar that once served luminaries like W. H. Auden and Allen Ginsberg, bartender Danny Neff has injected a dose of cool rebellion in the form of premade drinks straight from the see more

Make Way for Brosé: Why More Men Are Drinking Pink

"I like to say that real men drink pink," says Thomas Pastuszak, wine director of the swanky NoMad Hotel in Manhattan. "There used to be this perception that rosé was a girly drink, but that's just not true." As Procrustean gender norms fall into the dustbin of history, more menfolk are succumbing to the charms of the Pink Mistress, blithely knocking back rosés ranging in color from onionskin to rare steak. Like his counterpart, the much-discussed female whiskey drinker, the rosé bro is inaugurating a freer, more egalitarian world of gender-fluid beverage consumption. see more
