  • Are oysters your dream date?
An acquaintance once told me that he was an unabashed fan of professional wrestling, even at the ripe old age of 35 years old, because it was a clean vice. He didn't hurt anybody by maintaining his disbelief, and it was a lot less expensive, and theoretically more healthy, than drinking beer or smoking.

New York magazine has written a piece, which is quintessentially a New ... York ... Piece ... meaning the kind of character featured, a 27-year-old Brooklynite who spends essentially every spare dollar on dining out, may only exist in the Big Apple. But the idea of food as conferring status or defining one's very existence is powerful enough to extend beyond the city that never sleeps - because there's always somewhere to eat at 4 a.m.

Don't dismiss this out of hand. Instead, take a moment and think about where you spend what you make. Is food your biggest vice?
