How Much Should a Writer Reveal When Reviewing a Strip Club Steakhouse?

That was the question I pondered after a City Paper editorial meeting last week in which editor Michael Schaffer, showing off again his ridiculous ability for recall, pointed out that Frank Bruni came out of the closet with his review of the Penthouse Executive Club for the Times.

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Young & Hungry has become Spiked TV or something like that.
