Mario Batali has been accused of being a little too partial to the color orange, but this is ridiculous — on Monday he and actor-director Stanley Tucci will light the Empire State Building the color of a Nerf football. No, it’s not just to match the clogs — orange happens to be the color of hunger awareness, and Mario is promoting the Food Bank for New York City’s Go Orange! campaign, which gives five meals to the needy for every $1 donated. So, okay, fine. As long as they don’t let Karim Rashid turn the thing pink.
