  • Supermarkets say: Please don’t buy the dreck we sell

    By Marty Kaplan

    March 4, 2013 | 10:27 am

    I couldn’t believe my eyes.

    I was in a Minneapolis branch of Byerly’s, an upscale grocery chain in Minnesota.  Scanning the aisles for a small extravagance for my dinner hosts, I noticed that the shelf labels included not just the price-per-unit, which I’m used to, but little...

  • Following the carp — the fish in gefilte — from lake to plate

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    March 29, 2012 | 3:51 pm

    Big fish, cheap fish; sport fish, gefilte fish.

    With apologies to Dr. Seuss, that’s a decent summary of the situation for carp today.

    The fish has its share of devoted fans — some like it dead on a plate, others prefer it alive and tugging on a hook — nevertheless, by and...

    Yesterday I went to the grocery store.  It was super hot out, had been a long day, my son left for a camping trip, I was sucked into stupid drama, had a headache, and wanted to get in and out of the store in a hurry.  I raced through the market on a mission, and ended up in the...

    By Julia Bendis

    December 27, 2010 | 12:09 pm

    Being a wife, a mother and a woman in general, you find yourself at a grocery store quite a bit.  I also find myself quite a bit pissed off when I am there.  I really thought that America was all about business, and customer service, and giving really good customer service.  I guess...

    By Dara Lehon

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A conservative, long-term investor, I'll still admit to my sometimes ridiculous attraction to the highs and lows of risk. Question is: How much can I -- or anyone -- really handle?
     
    At 22, I'd fearlessly seek the beta -- or risk factor -- in anticipation of the alpha -- or excess...

    Inside Kosher World, the recent "for-the-trade" food show, you had to remind yourself you were in Anaheim. To my left, two gentlemen negotiated a deal in animated Hebrew. To my right, wine connoisseurs swirled, sniffed and sipped kosher-for-Passover premium varietals from Israel and...

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    "J-ated," as in "jaded," might be the best way to describe the ennui that has set in among many JDaters these days, singles tired of the merry-go-round of endless possibility and disappointment.

    In spite of that, or because of it, new dating Web sites seem to pop up every day.

  • Zagat for Dating

    By Amy Klein

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    "Where do you want to meet?" I ask my blind date on the phone for our last-minute get-together. I find it's best to set up these things in haste, on the fly, soon after a phone call, so expectations are kept to the barest minimum. (And yet, somehow, no matter how low hopes seem to...

    Santa Monicans call it "the accident." Upon further reflection, some residents also concede that while this word is accurate, it does not capture the enormity of what happened on July 16, 2003. That day, an 86-year-old man's foot pressed down on the accelerator of his 1992 Buick,...
