  1. It's going on this weekend. I didn't get down there the first day but will be there today. Any advice. Event details here: http://bigapplebbq.org/ Host Note: Click HERE for the terms under which this has been posted on the eGullet Forums
  2. I think that ended up being the solution. I guess there is no word that exists in English that most people would understand without the need for a definition.
  3. Tri2Cook, the context is that a colleague is writing about a product that works for both muffins and cupcakes, and in the copy he doesn't want to keep repeating "muffins and cupcakes." He wants to use one word that means both, and that people will understand. It may not be possible.
  4. Hard one, right? Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  5. Anybody have an idea for a single vocabulary word that means either a cupcake or a muffin, i.e., an individual sized baked good baked in a muffin/cupcake pan?
  6. The Stage Deli has closed

    I had some fine experiences at the Stage Deli. I don't think it was ever the best for any one thing, however the sandwich combinations named for celebrities were often brilliant. I wonder if the one in Vegas is still in operation.
  7. I was walking through Midtown yesterday (not pleasant) and noticed that the Stage Deli has closed. This article confirms: http://www.myfoxny.com/story/20231162/nycs-famous-stage-deli-closes Not that it was ever my favorite, but it is a lost piece of deli history.
  8. What kind of tubing does one need to use in order to accommodate hot liquid?
  9. Those who use siphons, is it just a piece of flexible tubing and you get it started with your mouth?
  10. Love the saucepan idea. Totally did not think of that. Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  11. What's the safest way to get 12 quarts of hot cocoa from a stock pot into a dispenser contraption? The require maneuver involves filling the dispenser from the top through about a 4" mouth.
  12. Friend's mom just died. Need to send food. Jewish food. In Cleveland. Who should I call?
  13. Not being the boss pays better! Basically, if the company endeavors to build your invention, the company owns the intellectual property and pays you (and your collaborators) a perpetual royalty.
  14. Thanks Nick. I was just talking about you at the new office. I mentioned that we once had our community focus group transcripts analyzed by a corporate psychologist in Australia, who developed a survey for us. It all sounded very impressive. Actually, in retrospect, the story impressed me too. With respect to the behind-the-scenes work, I think my successors are slowly realizing that I did less than they thought and that I didn't do it as well as I should have!
  15. Once I settle in, surely, I should be able to do that.
