New York editor Max joined Ben and Alaina this Wednesday at the Serious Eats Stuyvestant Town bureau for a day of much sandwich eating, snow-fall-watching, and some work thrown in for good measure. Not pictured: group hugs of "OH MAN IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE OTHER HUMANS AGAIN."

Unlike those of us in NYC, Chicago editor Nick's office is his home. Curtains! Bountiful natural sunlight! We lack these things in the NYC office.

AHT editor Robyn's desk at home is considerably messier than Nick's. You can fit a lot of random things under that laptop stand. Things that will never emerge again.

A random walk down Chrystie Street resulted in an impromptu rice noodle roll cart tasting at the corner of Grand Street. No rice noodle roll is safe from Max's stomach acids.

The last time we saw Alec, son of former SE contributor Tam Ngo, he looked quite baby-like. About one and a half months later, he's looking...more toddler-like! Ok, not a huge difference, but he does transform a bit each time we see him.

Kenji and his wife Adri threw a Halloween party the Saturday before Sandy hit. Here's the megadorable Halloween family portrait featuring bee dogs Yuba and Hambone. (For all your bee dog needs, head to beedogs.com. Yes, the internet is amazing.)

Erin also threw a Halloween party before Sandy. To go with her costume, she had to wear a "McKayla is not impressed" look aaalllll night (or at least when people were taking photos of her).
