Comes to us from the recent edition of the New York Review. Michael Massing, writing about who joins the military, explains: “One night, on a visit to Buffalo Wild Wings, a cavernous bar/restaurant on Arsenal Street, I approached a table of young men who were drinking beer and munching on chicken wings.

I picture Massing, or his editors, imagining subscribers pausing, chin-in-hand, to look out at their windows and wonder at a world with such marvels as Buffalo Wild Wings in it.
