Inside One Drop

I defy anyone to find a better place to let your freak flag fly than Las Vegas, and if you’re the type of buttoned up conservative who doesn’t regularly cavort with bearded ladies or canoodle with a zebra-man, first of all, what’s wrong with you? Second, you get permission to do those things and dress as crazy glam as you’d like each year in the early spring, when One Night for One Drop arrives.

Play With Your Food!

There is a magical way to distract yourself from an awkward date, stop the whining of small children, and reap the therapeutic benefits of puttering around your kitchen without the inconvenience of cleaning it later. And that, of course, is go to a restaurant where you’re cooking dinner yourself. “Doesn’t this defeat the purpose of being served?” you might ask. In fact, service is usually stellar at the most dynamic DIY places, since their primary job is saving you from yourself. For the past few of weeks, I’ve been dining DIY—around some of the city’s Korean barbecues, shabu-shabu spots, and yes, even '90s-era fondue chains. Here’s a pared-down selection of my recent favorites.

Here’s how I’m catapulting myself from gift-giving zero to hero this year.
