The second Golden Probes taped on Saturday. In the words of creator Lizz Winstead, the satirical awards show “honors so many shitbags.”
It’s been a little over a year since Danny Bowien announced in a TimesTalk with Anthony Bourdain that he was opening a new location of his wildly popular Lower East Side and San Francisco restaurant, Mission Chinese Food.

The MTA’s haunted house at Union Square prompted countless jokes about how the subway system already is a horror show. But anyone who’s been dreading the impending L-pocalypse knows it’s going to get even worse.

There’s now a Trader Joe’s in Manhattan with enough room in its aisles to stretch both of your arms.
Seriously — it’s big. Like, it’s biggest-on-the-East-Coast big. Like, 30,000-square-feet-in-New-York big.

As I noted so very long ago, when I had significantly fewer cavities, Slush Puppies are nearly impossible to come by in New York City. Even back then, Chowhounders (remember Chowhounders?) were asking: “Slush Puppie in New York— does it exist?”
Can’t get your hands on– or don’t have the money for– New York City’s latest viral food sensation, the $75 smoked watermelon “hams” that Ducks Eatery makes at a rate of just three or four per night? Good news: Sandwich versions of the hams are now being served at the East Village restaurant’s sister spot, Harry & Ida’s. The catch: Only 30 are made per day, and they’re only available after 5pm.
Things looked very hairy for the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade back in August, when the event’s founder, Garrett Rosso, announced that permitting and insurance issues had caused him to cancel the event. Today, however, City Council member Carlina Rivera announced that the annual catwalk of costumed canines, which brings an estimated 500 dogs and 25,000 dog lovers to the park, is back on for Oct. 28 at 3pm, though it’ll be at a new location.
New York City has an ecosystem all its own: The sub-species in North Brooklyn survive with vintage clothing that costs more than current clothing; people in the Bronx keep it chill in the park; financial district Manhattanites trample over their lower-income prey with no remorse; and Staten Islanders are basically nonexistent.
Instagrammers and arthounds rejoice! A Brooklyn coffee shop that focuses on single origin espresso and a nonprofit organization devoted to popularizing local photographers are teaming up to create a space filled with beans and beauty.
A protester disrupted Henry Kissinger’s appearance at an NYU business school event yesterday. Ethan Frankel, an NYU student, took the megaphone and announced he had interrupted the event to several dozen protesters at Gould Plaza.
In a video, Frankel can be seen standing up a few rows from the front and beginning to make a statement about Kissinger’s involvement in the Vietnam War, to groans from the crowd, before he was escorted out. Then another student stood up, yelling “Henry Kissinger, you have blood on your hands”; she also mentioned Kissinger’s involvement in the overthrow of the democratically elected President Allende in Chile, before being escorted out.
This 23-Year-Old Had Trouble Finding Suits, So She Launched a Bespoke Tailoring Startup For Modern Women
“It was amazing to me that my peers, the men, had custom fitting options galore. But for the women, it was very hard for us to find suits that fit properly, and suits that weren’t so old-fashioned and conformed to our modern standards,” Mowarin said.
