A reader had a Thursday-night brush with Fanta Pants: “Just wanted to let you know mario batali was at the bbq place called rub off of seventh avenue last night! Was super cute with his kids and wearing orange crocs!” A day later, our own Adam Platt tweeted about a Little League game pitting his kid against Batali’s. (Speaking of Plattypants, we’re still taking your questions for him. E-mail us here!)
