Nick went golfing at Bethpage Black, which hosted the US open, and he has the ridiculous tan lines to prove it.

Julie and Julia didn't convince me to buy Mastering the Art (though it did convince me that Meryl should've won another Oscar!) But Julia's firsthand account of her labor of love convinced me. So, I bought the iconic cookbook, loaded up the Netflix queue with The French Chef, and here we are:
