According to a Pew Research survey, only 37% of white Americans think the events in #Ferguson raise important issues about race.

Okay, fellow white people. We need to talk.

Let me tell you a story: I was an angry punk teenager. Not violent, but I did a shitton of trespassing, and I got into a…

Eater was sold to Vox Media at the end of last year and as a result it will change more in 2014 than it has during the entire rest of its existence. I think Amanda Kludt and her team are doing an excellent job. As exciting as this evolution is to watch, it has me a little bit nostalgic, frankly. It has me missing the old days — and you’ll forgive my cheap back-in-the-day riff here — when features like the Deathwatch and the IMterview roamed. When this story ran.

It led me to reach out to Adam Kuban earlier this year to ask him if we could get together and chat. On paper I was interviewing him for sort of a Where Are They Now: Adam Kuban, but practically speaking, I just wanted to hang with an OG food blogger, one whose output, regardless of platform, I’ve always enjoyed.

Kuban started Slice, a blog about pizza, more than a decade ago, on account of deep obsession and, ostensibly, free time. Along the way he invented the “pizza upskirt” and was part of a small group of people who set the ground rules for food blogging that are still in effect today. Now he’s running a sold-out pizza pop-up, Margot’s; and he works one shift a week at Paulie Gee’s, the superb Brooklyn pizzeria, in training to franchise it in Portland, Oregon. Of all of the many characters who in one way or another have spent time talking about eating as a matter of profession, Adam is categorically top-5 for me. He is everything that is right about the medium. His tone is razor sharp yet approachable, he’s consistent, and he knows what he doesn’t know.

From last night’s expedition to @kinchleystavern. Amazing place. FINALLY made it after all these years. Paying for it this morning with heartburn. Should NOT have ordered that pepperoni pie with hot pickled peppers. #barpies #barpizza #pubpizza #nj #newjersey #ramsey #ramseynj #pizzerias #pizza

ZOMG THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. #ridgewood #queens #nyc #itsinqueens #queenscapes #thisisnewyorkcity #pizza #nycpizzagram

Photo by @matthewshyland. Here’s essentially a #FamousOriginalA, but with some tweaks. The original Famous Original A, as I make it at #PaulieGees, is sauce, shaved Parm, Romano, and sausage and onion. Here, I ran out of grated Parm and had to go with Romano only — but then I added Kublend™ cheese. You kinda HAVE to on bar pies. So it’s slightly different so I should probably give it another name. Maybe the Adam Bomb, lol? #margotspizza #clintonhill #brooklyn #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity #nycpizzagram #nycpizza #eeeeeats #foodporn #omnomnom #pizza

Oh, sweet Lord, Rosario made a square pie again today. Got it still warm from the oven. If you’re in #Astoria, Ditmars area, you need to get down here RIGHT NOW. #pizza #nycpizza #nycpizzagram #queens #nyc #foodporn #omnomnom #eeeeeats #kubslunch #weeklypizzalunch #pizzasnack

#weeklypizzalunch for dinner. Finally made it out to @milkflowernyc. Nice space and great pizza. Apologies if my “editing” whacked out the color balance. I’m colorblind and really mangle hues in post-edit when the lighting in a venue is dim. Anyway, this is the Super Snuka: sauce, mozzarella, pineapple, jalapeños, and speck. It is insanely hot! #pizza #nycpizzagram #eeeeeats #foodporn #omnomnom #nyc #astoria #queens #thisisnewyorkcity #itsinqueens #queenslove

I kinda wanna call this one the 1UP. It’s the extra-mushroom–Parmesan–olive oil–sauce pizza I’ve been making the last several weeks at #PaulieGees. #nycpizzagram #pizza #greenpoint #brooklyn #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity #foodporn #omnomnom

My #PaulieGee’s colleague Adam Jones came up with this one for staff pie — the Live at Goudakan: mushrooms, Gouda, pickled onions. #pizza #nycpizzagram #foodporn #omnomnom

Leftovers: left side is a take-home shift pie from my Wednesday night shift at #PaulieGees. It’s the Parm, mushroom, Romano, sauce pizza I’ve been making for house pies lately. Right side is @MargotsPizza #Funghitown. #pizza #nycpizzagram #leftovers

Regram from @wompedy — From left, #Margot-rita and #LoveSupreme pizzas from yesterday’s @margotspizza pop-up. #pizza #nycpizzagram #margotspizza #barpies #barpizza #pubpizza #eeeeeats #foodporn #omnomnom

It may be hard to see what’s going on here, but this is part of a pyramid stack of pizza pans from @margotspizza earlier today @pizzalovesemily. Thanks to hard work and planning on @matthewshyland’s part, we were able to pan up, partially build, and stack a mess of pre-pizzas before service this morning. That meant we could spend more time building and cooking the pizzas just right — and that the whole thing ran smoother than it ever has. Excelsior! #margotspizza #pizza
