In Praise of Steve McQueen’s Post-Hollywood Hermit Style

It is an undisputed fact that Steve McQueen is a style icon. In menswear circles he’s revered as a god of sorts, continuously referenced for his ability to bring a certain coolness to whatever he was wearing, whether it was a three-piece suit or shawl cardigan.

There is a certain grace mixed in with a touch of violent aggression in Matthews’ game, a flow to the action that is hard to take one’s eyes off.

“I’m starting conversations with leadership now. We’re looking at how we would structure it,” said Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens), whose uncle died in a nursing home from COVID-19.

Colorado Springs smokehouse serves Kansas City-style brisket burnt ends | Lifestyle

Meat candy. We’re talking burnt ends — the sweet, smoky, crispy end pieces of a brisket that are mouthwateringly good.

And with the Kansas City Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl, it seems only fitting to pay homage to these savory treats that hail from the team’s hometown.

Originally, burnt ends were simply the burnt crusty trimmings cut off the brisket point, according to Steven Raichlen, cookbook author and founder of Barbecue University.
