In case you missed it, Greenpoint’s Acme Smoked Fish and Zucker’s Bagels tried to get in the Guinness World Record book last Friday by constructing the world’s largest bagel and lox sandwich.

Dan Bejar’s latest Destroyer album, Ken, sailed into 9th place in our top 25 albums of 2017 list, and deservedly so, we said: Following the bombastic and dreary Poison Season we’re happy to report that Destroyer’s Ken is a fantastic rebound.
