What the Fork: Burritos, waffles, and other life hacks for holiday leftovers

It happens every year. Despite my best efforts of eating two (or, ahem, three) servings, there are still so many Thanksgiving leftovers. Before I drift away into a food-induced coma, I always do my future self a favor and save everything. I might not want it now, but I’ll be thanking past Lindsay as soon as I mow down a slice...

Don’t drink and fry: Ways to stay safe this Turkey Day

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I could caution you against overeating, but I’m not even going to try. Breaking our collective diet plans between Thanksgiving and the New Year seems to be an indestructible annual tradition. Instead, I’d like to look at some actually preventable dangers, like not becoming one of the...

Beer Belly’s in Aztec is the best burger place you’ve never been to

“I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel, I focus on the pain, the only thing that’s real…”

The haunting lyrics from the brilliant Johnny Cash cover of “Hurt,” an old Nine Inch Nails’ song, bellow out over the restaurant speakers as we make our way to the counter at Beer Belly’s Burgers & BBQ, a little dive...

Silverton’s Golden Block Brewery should be on every beer lover’s list

It’s borderline freezing outside, but the tables in Golden Block Brewery and Restaurant in Silverton are almost full. The bar doesn’t have a single open barstool, either – a bit disappointing, considering we stopped by this Greene Street eatery to drown our sorrows in booze.

We snag a table near the open pizza kitchen,...

A tipsy time at Derailed Pour House’s newly remodeled bar lounge

“It’s the perfect white-girl-wasted drink,” our companion declares, holding up a glass of wild strawberry basil lemonade at Derailed Pour House. “In the summer, it’s the perfect patio and drink, and in the winter...”

She trails off, distracted by the music providing the soundtrack for our visit to Derailed. She...

Getting wasted: No, not that kind of wasted

We’re coming up on a few holidays that we celebrate by preparing huge, feed-an-army-style meals, so it seems like a good time to put a bug in your ear about food waste. I’m not just talking about save-the-environment style initiatives (although there are many compelling reasons to compost instead of sending your waste to the...

Diner dive of the week: Thick shakes and thicc burgers at Ben’s Big Burgers

Ben’s Big Burgers promises colossal-sized burgers that will make you feel thicccccc after devouring them, and boy, do they deliver.

We’d been eyeballing the divey-looking burger joint downtown on Second Avenue for weeks, but it wasn’t until one late afternoon, when we’d skipped our lunch hour at work, that our companion...

What the Fork: Food from scratch is totally worth the effort, especially at 2nd Deli and Spirits

Everyone has a favorite sandwich. For years, mine was an open-faced grilled cheese with cheddar and plenty of cracked black pepper. Before you complain that a sandwich is defined as “two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between,” know that Merriam-Webster is getting soft. They also define a sando as...

Riff Raff on the Rio is a great place to chug beer and hot-as-hell margaritas

The Chokecherry Habañero Margarita at Riff Raff on the Rio is one hell of a margarita, but that also means its spices came from the very flames of Hades’ underworld. With each gulp of the pink-power cocktail, our companions have a good laugh at our expense, watching as we try to douse the inferno sizzling down our very...

Drinking very old Ska beer to celebrate a milestone

I recently turned 35, and unlike all previous ages, I certainly feel older every day. My back is more sore, my feet have a mild case of plantar fasciitis, my hair is turning gray, and I get heartburn if there’s too much lime in a dish. And, to be fair, I am not being kind to myself. I drink too much, smoke too much, and worry...
