Meatless Hoops— Headed to Golden 1 Center for a Sacramento Kings game? If it’s on a Monday, you’ll have some extra options when you hit the concessions stand. In an NBA first, Golden 1 Center will offer meatless Monday options; in addition to everything that’s already available (so yes, meaty AND meatless, depending on your tastes). Visit The Flavor Lab cart in Section 109 and get your vegetarian on. AOC Knows How to IG— Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez has a lot of haters. We get it, she makes people uncomfortable with her lack of y chromosome or f***s to give. She’s crushing social media though, and her Instagram feed shows us that there’s more to DC than fast food. BAM!— There was an era before celebrity chefs were a thing. If you mark time on that scale, the era we live in now is AE: After Emeril. Of course, the man with the BAM isn’t dead. He’s in NY, where he’s just opened his Greek Island-inspired concept, Rodos, his first NYC restaurant. Book it. Finally— Don’t panic, yet.
