As Frank Bruni (New York Times restaurant critic) put it: "David Chang is at this point the New York restaurant world’s equivalent of Tiger Woods or Roger Federer, armed with a spatula in place of a nine-iron or tennis racket.

Bags, also known as bean bag toss, is a nickname for Cornhole, a game originating in Ohio. The game requires two boards with a hole in them spaced approximately 30 feet apart. You then throw bean bags (or corn filled bags) towards the boards, with the goal of getting them in the hole. You score 3 points for getting a bag in the hole, and 1 point on the board. Teams are 2 people, and they stand on opposite sides. You subtract the difference between the team totals for each round. Game ends at 21 points.
