Crush of the Week 

Mark Lunsford is to family-business pitchmen what Bill Pullman is to Hollywood actors-understated but hot. And it’s not because he’s surrounded by flaming logs at his family’s Hearth & Grill Shop on Thompson Lane, where ventless gas fireplaces and grills fit for Titans are in plentiful supply. This 30-year-old hearth throb can rattle off the properties and accoutrements of an exceptional grill like we can recite the alphabet, and he’s been doing television commercials for the shop for fully 10 years. (What he must have looked like at 20!) He’s the kind of guy mothers in Madison would want for their daughters, but he could attract a scoping hot-pants at Bar Twenty3 too. Except for the fact that he’s a married father of one—soon to be two, in another six weeks. (Congratulations, Mark. Does Fisher-Price make toy fire pokers?) His favorite griller is steak, and he likes it medium rare. Mm-hmmm. All we know is, he’s smokin’, and he can light our fire anytime.
