I'll start the ball rolling with the fingerling potatoes I bought at Tompkins Square yesterday. I am very bad at remembering the names of stalls, but there are only half a dozen or so here (open Sund

They make Hooligan (full stop) which some might call stinky. And mean that as a compliment.

Nice to see you here, Paul.

My father taught me to eat oysters when I was young, and he taught me to gulp them whole. This worked until I tried it with a large Pacific oyster that nearly choked me.

They are best chewed.

What was his point in gulping them whole?    Getting you over the initial texture or manliness or ?

I would need to research but it was accepted practice back in his day. He would have been copying others.

Wait I didn’t know this STILL wasn’t accepted practice.

Is it possible that throughout history guys have actually disliked oysters while downing a dozen or so before a meal?   

Unlikely, they're pretty terrific. More likely it helped the bum bum ciao slurp and run business model.

I'm excited to see that the market at 168th Street & Ft. Washington is reopening on June 6. This is an added impetus to actually leave my office during lunch.

I picked up ramps at Union Square today, but they were trimmed down to the bulbs because the leaves are giving up. Might try freezing some. 

Fiddleheads were there.
