The New Yorker has a great article about the now forgotten “coffee shop” Dumb Starbucks and how it plays into hoax culture. How did we fall for it?

SUBJECT: A Late February Dinner Something
January 30, 3:11PM
Hope everyone is doing fabulously. So! I’m sure Tobin or myself have spoken to each of you as a couple or individually but we are finally getting our shit together enough to have a dinner party at our place. It’s been months (Years??) since we’ve tried to get something together so—Hey.—why not assemble the old Dinner Party Crew together to do something.
A few things! We are thinking of having this on February 22 since most of you said you were slammed through February and that a Saturday is best too. Please to confirm and thank you. Since this is Los Angeles and food trends are more fashionable than actual fashion trends, please relay what you can and cannot eat. We will do our best to accommodate!
Woo: very excited to get the old gang back together. Peace from the East (Hollywood).
It’s nearly Valentine’s Day and the Institute Of Domestic Technology has a great recipe for Blood Orange margaritas. A perfect holiday treat—with an LA slant!
