Be cynical if you like, but we want to get married — as long as we can register at Pryde's. Every surface but the ceiling here is hung with kitchen tools, festooned with appliances, lavished with cookware, adorned with aprons. And when you think you've seen it all, there's a pie pantry on the lower level — as in pie for sale, to eat, whole or by the slice, ready now or available to order, placed in your cupcake-weary hands by smiling people from some earlier and better America where no rolling pin went unused for more than 36 hours at a time. In that America, the America that Pryde's keeps alive, marrieds still stockpile their kitchens with useful gizmos in order to engineer actual food, the better to feed and matchmake single friends into new sets of cooking couples. Unattached? Get to Pryde's and let one of the preternaturally friendly sales staff help you with the careful selection of just the right implements to perfect your most ambitious recipe. This is where you begin attracting your future mate, and it's where you'll end up plotting what your friends and family will buy for you in celebration.
