    Pickles: Will You Eat Them on a Train? On a Plane? At the Drive-in?After recently ruminating on mustard, Bruni’s blog tackles pickles today, linking to a classic Maury clip where a girl freaks out at the sight of them. Though our copy editor has a similar aversion to the things (she has yet to forgive us for interviewing Roger Janin of Guss’s), we’re big on pickles, hence this photo of a “chilly dilly” served at the Silver Moon theater in Florida, one of the Times’ favorite drive-ins and the only one they know of that sells beer. First-run movies cost only $4 at Silver Moon, but should a NYC restaurateur want to jump on the concept of outdoor flicks, pickles, homemade pizza, and beer (hey, if beef jerky, bowling, and microbrews is possible…), we’d be okay with their tripling that price.

  24. Ask a Waiter
    Guss’ Pickles Vendor Roger Janin Doesn’t Mind Getting Wet and SmellyRoger Janin has been working at Lower East Side institution Guss’ Pickles for six years. “I used to hang out here,” says Janin. “The mother of one of my friends was working here. She asked if I wanted to push some pickles around and I said, ‘Sure, I got nothing better to do.’” These days Janin works at the stand with Pat Fairhurst, his mother and the current owner of the eightysomething-year-old establishment. We asked him what it’s like persevering through frostbite, two-hour lines, a budding lawsuit, 500-pound pickle barrels, and the very stinky train ride home.
