You know who really doesn’t get enough attention these days? Dudes. And you know what’s really noteworthy and unusual? The fact that dudes (and mostly white dudes, weird) edit most of the major magazines and newspapers in the United States. Glad Women’s Wear Daily is on top of it.
NEW YORK — A few weeks ago, Bon Appétit editor in chief Adam Rapoport and New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren went out to dinner at Veritas with Times food critic Sam Sifton and Random House editor Andy Ward. It was, in Rapoport’s words, a “very dude dinner.”
Once the waitress came around to take drink orders, Lindgren made the great faux pas of ordering a sparkling wine.
“I was like ‘Dude! What? You want a sparkler?’” said Rapoport.
Sh-t talk began. The other dudes had ordered vodka and bourbons.
Sparkling wine?! Haha. It’s just more interesting from there.
