TRAVIS BARKER REMIX – FOREVER
PIES N THIGHS
"Stephen Tanner, a Georgia native, is the man behind the pulled pork and the savory side of the short, affordable and generally excellent menu of comfort food with a Southern accent served at Pies 'n' Thighs, a new spot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He smokes shoulders in a New Braunfels offset smoker (which, like most things in southern Williamsburg, wears a spray of graffiti), in the fenced concrete yard that serves as his restaurant's dining room. It is a modest if not threadbare setup. The restaurant, such as it is, occupies a tiny closet of a kitchen that for years sat unused — save to house beer — in back of the Rock Star Bar, a dive so cinematically seamy and purposefully out of the way that it spurred me to imagine all kinds of unlawful scenarios playing out between its walls. But the charms of a dinner at one of the gingham-clad tables in the yard, with the Williamsburg Bridge providing the soundtrack far overhead, were impossible to resist."

MAGISSO CAKE SERVER
"Finnish designer Maria Kivijärvi's Magisso Cake Server takes an innovative approach to the art of cake-slicing. Press the server down vertically on the cake to make a clean cut, and then -- while squeezing the handle -- remove the slice to a plate, where it may be released by relaxing your grip. Made from stainless steel."
AMERICA: LAND OF CHEESEHEADS AND CHICKEN LOVERS
"The Agriculture Department's regular look at American food trends shows we've become a nation of cheeseheads and chicken lovers. A hundred years ago the average American ate less than five pounds of cheese per year. But in the last three decades alone, consumption has tripled to 31.4 pounds of cheese per head."
