Show Business

Ross Golan and puppy

Ross Golan has been fine-tuning his musical The Wrong Man for 15 years and recently debuted it at South by Southwest. My friend Andrew Kaplan took me and I loved it. It’s coming to New York this fall with a full production led by Thomas Kail and Alex Lacamoire, two of the creators behind Hamilton and In the Heights. Get tickets while you can!

Hot Stuff

Evan's Rockin' Hot Sauce

Jack Antonoff of the band Bleachers turned me onto Evan’s Rockin’ Hot Sauce from his bandmate Evan Smith. It’s complex and herbaceous and vinegary. I put it on everything—fried chicken, pizza, wings.

Punk's Not Dead

More Fun In The New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of LA Punk book

John Doe and Tom DeSavia’s first book—Under the Big Black Sun, about the ’80s California punk rock scene—was a page-turner, so I was excited to read their follow-up, More Fun in the New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of L.A. Punk, which reads just like it sounds and has throwback photos and personal accounts. It’s the coolest.

Well Fed

FEED bag

I’m a big fan of FEED. Lauren Bush Lauren created the brand to help end childhood hunger, and now she’s collaborating with Polo Ralph Lauren for the Polo x FEED collection. The proceeds benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign, and each item is stamped to highlight how many meals the purchase provides to kids in need.
