What We Like Right Now: Strawberries, Patrick Stewart, Lydia Lunch

FOOD
It’s peak strawberry season right now, and there is no shortage of bright-red beauties available at your local farmers’ market. This year I’ve been loving the strawberries from the Tomatero Farm stand at the Grand Lake Farmers’ Market. They aren’t the very sweetest strawberries you’ll find (though they’re plenty sweet), but they might be the juiciest — and, while YMMV, I’ll take that tradeoff any day. Plus the farmers’ market stand always has at least two or three varietals available each week. My favorites have been the Rosas (the juiciest of a juicy lot) and the small, intensely sweet Seascapes. — Luke Tsai

Maybe you heard: Patrick Stewart just ate his very first slice of pizza in his 72 years on this Earth, and he tweeted a picture to document the experience! New York Magazine’s Dan Amira got to the bottom of this very important news item. His interview with Stewart was the most adorable thing I read all week. — L.T.
