Bars are really problematic. I have to tell you, if you look at some of the outbreaks that we’ve seen, it’s when people go into bars, crowded bars. You know, I used to go to a bar. I used to like to sit at a bar and grab a hamburger and a beer. But when you’re at a bar, people are leaning over your shoulder to get a drink, people next to each other like this. It’s kind of fun because it’s social, but it’s not fun when this virus is in the air. So I would think that if there’s anything you want to clamp down on, for the time being, it’s bars.
You can turn that spare room into something more than just a game room or TV-watching space with an extensive themed remodel.

“If I’m baking with my grandsons, I’ll use chocolate chips, because they’re designed to hold their shape and not be super-soft and messy at room temperature. Otherwise, I like to use chunks, or chop up bars. If chocolate is the star, buy something good. It’s worth it. I like Callebaut, and I like Valrhona, if I can find it. If you’re going to melt chocolate, don’t overheat it. It doesn’t take much to melt chocolate, so don’t abuse it. Good white chocolate is expensive and can be hard to find, but it’s important to buy a good quality, because they often put so much garbage into it.”
