The walk-in refrigerator is one of man’s greatest inventions. Not only does it keep massive quantities of food cold and fresh, it’s also virtually soundproof. Generally, the walls are thicker than a creme brulee with too many eggs. Any noise that might seep through them is quickly drowned out by clattering pans in the kitchen and mindless chatter in the dining room.

It’s also more frigid than a hug between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.

    I imagine that in addition to arctic micro-therapy, you may note that the walkin is a remarkably hopping social hub. Many a heart fluttered and broke from chilly encounters therein. (It may also be noted that, if one pulled up a seat to observe one of these free mini-soaps unfold, and that seat happens to be the pickle bucket, a moment spent checking the integrity of the lid is by no means a wasted moment.)
