A Bargain Dinner at $500 A Head

Friday, January 18th, 2013


The other night a buddy and I went down to Washington D.C. to check out Minibar, the acclaimed restaurant by Chef Jose Andres. It blew me away. Had popcorn that made me roar smoke from my nostrils like a dragon and red ravioli filled with peanut butter. Plus 24 other stunningly inventive courses. In this article I wrote for Barron’s, you’ll get a taste of what it’s like, and why I think it’s a bargain at $500 a head.

Barron’s Bound

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Just had my first week as Contributing Editor at Barron’s. Great to work with low-key, whip-smart, and decent editors and writers producing highest quality copy. Here is Barron’s editor-in-chief and president, Ed Finn, announcing  in his own words the magazine’s personnel changes. My brief is to file stories for Penta, the weekly’s personal affairs magazine for those with $5 million plus in assets.

Here’s my first Penta-blog. Planning to do three a week. Still getting the hang of things. But psyched.

Contributing Editor, Barron’s

Monday, September 12th, 2011

It’s official. On Sept. 26th, I start as a Contributing Editor at Barron’s, America’s premier financial magazine (owned by Dow Jones). I am once again working with my old buddy and one of the most talented and decent fellows in American journalism today: Barron’s president and editor, Ed Finn. An added bonus is the fact I will also be working with an old Forbes colleague, Fleming Meeks, and a new colleague, Phil Roosevelt, plus many other talented folk. Even my old fishing buddy, Jack Willoughby, is at Barron‘s.

Ed and the others asked me to come on board to help build-out Penta, Barron‘s personal affairs magazine. Penta, well-edited by Phil, is a fantastically fun and engaging publication that I can say, with all sincerity, I enjoy and want to be associated with. Highest quality, beautiful writing, terrifically fun subjects – and a franchise that I believe has huge upside potential. As the Buddhist monk, Reverend Oda, lead character in my upcoming novel Buddhaland Brooklyn, might say, “This is good omen.”
