Sliders for Many

I am planning an indoor party for this weekend and I would like to serve around 100 sliders. I will not be able to grill during the party and would rather not cook on the stovetop. I have found a few articles suggesting that burgers could be pre-grilled and kept warm and juicy by either storing in a steamer on the stove or in a pot in the oven. In both cases beef broth is used as the liquid. Has anyone tried this before? Do you end up with uber well done burgers? Any other suggestions?

Sunset park or Red Hook fields for Cinco de Mayo?

I am looking for family friendly daytime cinco de mayo food and celebration. Any thoughts on which place might have more activity?

Good eats near Staten Island Children's Museum?

Thanks for the suggestions. We ended up at Joe & Pats on Victory. Not quite around the corner, but well worth the trip.

Pittsburgh for a day

A Brooklyn Hound returning to my college stomping grounds 13 yrs later for just one day and I'm looking for a lunch and dinner recommendation. I have an urge to go back to what I remember Ritter's Diner, Charlie's, Mad Mex, etc....but I know much has changed. What's new in Pittsburgh?

Lunch recs should be basic, dinner should be something special (it's my wife's bday). Thanks in advance. We'll be staying in Squirrel Hill....

EV or BK - Dive Bar with Good Pizza?

Cherry Tree Bar in Brooklyn on 4th ave and Bergen (near the atlantic terminal). Excellent pizza, backyard to hang out in, and a location in Brooklyn that can be somewhat divey (although perfectly fine) :)

Restaurants in the Boroughs like Blue Hill at Stone Barns

I would put chestnut on smith st in brooklyn in this category. check out the article about the chef in the most recent edible brooklyn issue.

Where can I find Argentinian Pizza - Fugazza ?

Does anybody know where I may find Fugazza Pizza? I had it while visiting Buenos Aires and assumed it would be easy to find in NY, but so far I have had no luck
