Manhattan hot doggery Gray's Papaya set to raise prices (again)

Manhattan hot doggery Gray's Papaya set to raise prices (again) Jun 10th, 2011 at 9:00AM: It's murder, I say! Murder! Well, I don't say it ... Gray's Papaya does. The Manhattan hot dog institution is about to raise its prices once again. This will be the third price increase since I moved to the Upper West Side in 2004. There's a rather dramatic sign hanging in the window at Gray's Papaya screaming, "MURDER!" It continues: WE ARE GETTING KILLED BY THE GALLOPING...

Photo of the Day (03.27.10)

Photo of the Day (03.27.10) Mar 27th, 2010 at 5:30PM: Taking pictures of food has never been more popular. Nearly everyone I know creates their own "food porn." Food has become an integral part of our travel stories and photographs. More often than not, we document the strange, extravagant and repulsive things that we ingest. Lost in those extremes are the images of the classics. What I love about this image by Flickr user Paul_Brady (whose...

The Port Authority hot dog

Dec 29th, 2009 at 8:00AM: I don't think anybody enters a bus station looking for an unforgettable culinary experience – at least not a good one.

So, before dashing down to see the in-laws on Christmas Eve, I stopped at Villa Pizza, in the southern part...

See Chicago wieners (and others) on IgoUgo list

See Chicago wieners (and others) on IgoUgo list Jul 3rd, 2009 at 2:00PM: Chicago makes several appearances on IgoUgo's list of top hotdog establishments, but there are plenty of spots across the country where you can pick up a great hotdog. My favorite apparently made the cut – a shortcoming of the list, I guess. For me, it doesn't get better than Popo's, in Swampscott, MA, and my local shop, Gray's Papaya, is no slouch, either. And, don't forget that there are...

Tour the world's vandalism

Tour the world's vandalism Feb 9th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Eyesore or art, graffiti is part of any culture's public dialogue. Vandalism is visual profanity, and we all swear in our own f---ing ways. I've been drawn to these wall scrawls for a while, probably since I read Holden Caulfield's concerns about the subject in Catcher in the Rye. My fascination gained momentum while I was stationed in South Korea. A soldiers' bar in Tong Du Chon (the Peace Club,...
