Do you dig comfort foods like loaded potato skins or loaded baked potatoes? If so, then you might be intrigued to know that the Loaded Potato Pancake is a thing that exists. I discovered this decadent fried delight when I visited Junior’s Restaurant in Times Square with my friend Jamie last week for a post-theater snack, and I was blown away by its extreme tastiness. Seriously; I am going to be talking about it for the rest of my life.

My memories of watching daytime TV Game Shows mostly involve being a kid who was home sick from school, or on summer vacation, because when else was I going watch them? What that means is that these memories of The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal are many decades in the past as this point, and yet they are quite clear and bring on a huge wave of fond nostalgia. This is probably why John Miller’s Here in the Real World, up now at the Mary Boone Gallery’s Chelsea location, resonated with me so strongly.
Here in the Real World features Miller’s Game Show Paintings (which he started painting in 1995) and his more recent series of reality TV personalities (started 2012), in which Miller selects images of people in purportedly uncontrived poses and paints them in a realist manner. Mary Boone’s cavernous room provides a perfect space for this show, which features many large scale canvases. Before I post more photos of the paintings however, I want to show you this:
Yes, that is a potato that was hanging out on the gallery’s front lobby carpet. Everybody wanted to know why there was a potato on the floor, and was it part of the show. And the answer is: I don’t know, but it is on a red carpet, so it must be important in some way.
Paintings like the one on the far right, above, made me feel five years old instantly.
How great is this? So great.
“A Brand New Car!”
This is like a still frame from a dream isn’t it?
What’s Behind the Door? It is a question for the ages.
The Worleygig highly recommends this exhibit.
John Miller’s Here in the Real World will be on Exhibit Through February 28th, 2015 at Mary Boone Gallery, Located at 541 West 24 Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
Hey what’s up. Did you know that September is National Potato Month? Word.
To celebrate The Love of the Spud appropriately, let me tell you about an exciting offer from Potatopia, the all potato-concept restaurant, which I think you might be interested in. Because, Potatoes.
In honor of September being National Potato Month, customers can visit any of the three Potatopia locations in New York City, Staten Island or New Jersey throughout the month for $4 meals after 4:00PM. Meals for this deal include either a Build Your Own or Signature Meal. Both deals include a small fountain drink.
Potatopia Locations are listed below:
Edison, New Jersey: Menlo Park Mall
Manhattan: 378 6th Avenue – New York, NY
Staten Island, NY: The Staten Island Mall
You have just over 2 more weeks to take advantage of this offer, so head on out and get your Spud on at Potatopia!
If you are a lover of Russian comfort food who thinks you have to hike it all the way out to Brighton Beach to taste Perogies and Chicken Kiev “like Grandma used to make,” then you will flip for Love Cafe and Bar, which recently opened in Manhattan’s up-and-coming Kips Bay neighborhood to astoundingly positive Yelp Reviews. And that says so much right there, because those Yelpers can be brutal.
