Jacques Torres, Boatman and Bon Vivant, Gives Away Free Kisses


Looks like Jacques Torres is milking that letter from Hershey’s for all it’s worth — not only does dude get a page in the Post today, but according to the Feed, he’s churning out 10,000 free samples of his Champagne kiss next Wednesday, when you can stop into the store and vote on whether it tastes like a Hershey’s kiss. Cute and all, but what we really love about Torres today? The Wall Street Journal piece about his houseboat, hilariously named Mr. Chocolate. That’s right, as if it wasn’t badass enough that he’s a member of the Beaujolais Biker Brigade, Torres lives year-round on a boat that’s docked in a Jersey marina (except when his wife visits, since “boating and high heels don’t go together”). Check out The Wall Street Journal’s envy-inducing (and if you’re easily seasick, nausea-inducing) video.
