Forget sexting. We’re big on Mexting (i.e., sending your friends random shots of Mexican food).
For a picture worth a thousand characters, whip up the best guacamole this side of the border with help from Alex Stupak, mastermind chef behind Empellón Taqueria and Empellón Cocina.
In addition to divulging his easy recipe (hint: It calls for pistachios), Stupak dishes on what to look for when you cut into an avocado and how much to mash.
Pair the green goodness with chips, sliced veggies, or a spoon — and call it a Labor Day party.
Just Instagram us the invite.
Try it straight from the master at Empellón Cocina, 105 First Avenue, between East 6th and 7th Streets (212-780-0999 or empellon.com). For more foodie fun, learn to make Thiago Silva’s frozen peanut butter pops, Daniel Boulud’s stove-top burger, and Daniel Holzman’s squash salad.
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
