Hello and welcome back to another weekend! We’re gonna have a whole variety of temperatures going on the next four days, so have fun dressing for that! ‘Cause there’s a lot of great stuff to do, meaning you DO have to get off your couch at some point, sorry! We’re talkin’ Oregon Trail Live! A spellwriting class! A first look at a new ARTECHOUSE installation! A chat with the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen staff! (It’s sold out but I’m including it anyway because I love the BA Test Kitchen more than I love myself! Also, it is our GIF theme // NOT SORRY!) We’re gonna get into all ye olde details momentarily, but first, here’s some REAL KOOL KONTENT you might’ve missed if you were too busy watching your stocks plummet due to “CARONAVIRUS”-induced fear!

Christina Chaey! Claire Saffitz! Gaby Melian! Molly Baz! Priya Krishna! And Sohla El-Waylly! (And Adam, but nobody really cares!)
