Traditions are a great thing to have, especially holiday traditions. But, sometimes you need to add your little part to the ongoing tradition in order to write your part of the story. Although we love to wax poetic about our favorite Thanksgiving traditions, we thought it would be a bold move to discuss what we intend to bring to the table this year, that maybe our grandmothers would probably frown upon, but that fifty years from now, some spoiled brat descendent of ours will be totally eating seconds of our dish, when others didn't even get a first serving because the kid is a total jerk, and because the dish is that good.
It's that time again! Time for the season of sick. Our man Insane Dane is starting the season off right, with a nice case of the flu. Way to go! We figured it's as good a time as any to discuss our favorite immune system boosting cold and flu fighters. Some of us grew up on matzo ball soup, some of us posole and some of us are like Bruce Willis in Unbreakable and have never known what it's like to be sick. If you're feeling just a little off your game, like a bug may be setting up shop then we have the show for you. Also, check out Insane Dane's latest Dish + Drink recipe.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Right but what does that have to do with eating Bagels? Nothing, unless you rephrase it like so: when in New York, do as the New Yorkers do. That pretty much means folding your pizza in half, trying to be Gordon Gecko when you're really just Bud Fox, and most importantly eating bagels all the time. I can officially say I hadn't really had a bagel until I visited Murray's Bagels in Chelsea. Delicious! I'm sold. Their bagels had perfect texture, and their cream cheese was subtly flavored and thankfully not over the top. Insane dane, Eatopia's resident bagel expert and Hanabi discuss the virtues of good bagels in this episode. Also, check out Insane Dane's latest Dish + Drink recipe.
Quince is a one Michelin star restaurant that is somewhat of a local legend around town and I just happened to have dinner there on the same night we recorded the show. It was fresh in mind so I needed to discuss. In our quest to be as diverse as possible we cleanly segued into burger talk, specifically Umami Burger. Since we we're already discussing burgers, we wanted to give a shout out to the fast food workers seeking a living wage.
Sunday's with DJ Drew on BTR
DJ Wynn summons new music from Young Fathers, Mount Kimbie, Austra, and Thee Oh Sees.
If you've never been to an Asian dessert diner, you're totally missing out. These places are fascinating. With delicious things like Hong Kong milk tea, egg puffs, roti buns, honey boxes you're in for a treat. As lame as that just sounded I can assure you it's the truth. Whatever you do, stay away from the sweet green bean soup because it's just weird. Oh, and don't forget to check out the latest Dish + Drink, it's about fish.

Sunday's with DJ Drew on BTR
We've got a lot of really great new songs on the show today, including BTR's Discovery Artist of the week, Souljazz Orchestra. But I'd especially like to highlight a brand new track from UUVVWZ, a great band that BTR has championed for a long time, and we haven't heard anything new from in awhile! We're very excited to be able to play a track from their new album on the show today.
Happy Fashion Week! I hope you've all been enjoying the colorful, bold collections we've seen rolling out so far for F/W 2013 - lots of great surprises, including John Patrick Organic's shock-pink! And with streaming access to over 80 top runway shows, there's no need to feel out of the loop this week as all the top designers present their latest works to NYC. And speaking of top designers: this week, I'm delighted to feature an interview with sisters Melissa and Carolina Cantor, co-founders of the exquisite new eco-fashion retail site Ethica. Melissa and Carolina showcase the work of fashion-forward labels, whose designers are not only innovative, but active in their passion to create sustainable goods. The sisters' good taste shows not only in the inventory, but in the overall shopping experience, from sleek presentation to proactive consumer education. On today's show, you'll hear from the Ms. Cantors about what led them to start Ethica, a few challenges they've faced in launching a webshop, some of the criteria they use in selecting brands and designers, and a few of their top-selling brands. Plus, a totally great playlist today with brand new music from Icelandic Sin Fang, Nebraska's up-and-comers UUVVWWZ, San Fran indie darling Thao Nguyen of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, and much more! So get ready for some serious style (and a serious new shopping addiction!) with Ethica and Sew & Tell on BTR!
