My roommate Liz and I were just discussing my complicated issues with red velvet cake. And then Facebook revealed this to her. If you want me to come to your wedding, I’m going to have to ask that you don’t have one of these:
If you really love True Blood (like I do) and you want to drink some bloodlike stuff while you watch, you’re in luck! They are going to make it a real (not actually blood) beverage – the NYT says so. Sort of gross right? But how fun would it be to have a True Blood party and drink that stuff and then bite people. FUNSIES!
I like this description of these delish looking pies on sticks ‘Pies to go. Work friendly, Driving friendly, Boyfriend friendly, Cellulite friendly, and embarrassment free pie pops.’
I just went to a Carvel ice cream stand for the first time and I can’t believe this cake exists and is marketed towards children.
not really exciting or newsworthy. i just thought i’d share…
Cafe Grumpy, the beloved coffee shop below my apartment is opening a new store today in Park Slope at 7th Ave between 11th and 12th streets. If you visit today you can get a free drink or something. Also they are running a nifty promotion where if you buy a bag of coffee or finish your drink punch card, you can enter to win a drawing for a free espresso machine.
So one of my most favoritest restaurants in my neighborhood is Papacitos. It’s an amazing Mexican joint with many veggie and vegan options, awesome fish tacos, and cute delivery boys. They also have an amazing outdoor patio and right now it’s byob because they somehow lost their liquor license. Anyways, recently Gothamist reported that they got their shit fucked up and robbed of $10k and their sound system (see below).
After Black Betty’s and several other restaurants/favorite bakeries going out recently, I am going to do whatever I can to support Papacitos and keep it from going under as well. I was there this afternoon for a quick brunch and it was a little sad without the classic rock they usually pump through the place but my breakfast burrito was A+. I strongly urge everyone to eat there because the food is excellent (the chef used to work at Brooklyn Label), the patio is beautiful, and i don’t want to see another one of my favorite restaurants go out of business this year. sad face (i hate emoticons).
“The suit details problems with the plant dating as far back as 2004, describing a sewer facility permeated by the smell of doughnuts, pipes clogged with corrosive slime and the resulting raw sewage leaks that eventually shut down the southern Fairfax sewer system.
At one point, public works officials ran a closed-circuit camera along a pipe to show the grease deposits, only to get the camera stuck in the buildup.”
If someone ever told me I was the cheese on their baguette, I’d be super-flattered.
this is Le Le and they are french and I thought it was fun and Drew showed me this, obviously, cause otherwise this would be a Britney Spears video.
shoot me in the face please. Because this show is terrible. Seriously. It’s a brain abortion.
Remember when Pee Wee said he loves fruit salad and then Ms. Yvonne goes, “Why don’t you marry it?” and fucking Pee literally did it!? Apparently this is not a very unique event and the name for people who do this is objectum-sexuals. One lady even married the Eiffel Tower.
The mayor of DC has oatmeal and bananas, along with chamomile tea with lots of honey. Kind of what a 60 year old woman has. But whatevs, his is still better than Maureen Dowd’s.
P.S. someone sent this to me in July and I just read it now. I’m catching up on emails while watching Obama’s address.
Oh Stains is super ready for this!
In honor of your 25th, please don’t fall off your bike!!
just add a elephant pin to that, and now it looks like you have puking animals on your shirt on purpose! GENIUS! from inventorspot via Jezebel.
DO IT HERE
Let me recommend one of the 2 Indiana farmers in the race. As a Hoosier, I can tell you that Indiana folk know how to farm. Crop rotation is the first thing we learn in grade school. No joke. Soy beans, corn, soy beans, corn, etc. But seriously, vote for Terry Himelick of Victory Acres. nuff said.
Well, that about sums it up. Watch it here. Thanks Alison for sending this to me.
She really looks like a mega-bitch circa 1936.. jeeez Betty, have some frosting and perk up a little! More from Jezebel here.
A nice article how our dining scene is picking up. Too bad they spell Capitol Hill wrong at one point and no one refers to H St. as Lower Capitol Hill. I’ve eated at Gillian Clark’s old restraunt and it had a lot of annoying rules and signs, but the eggs were amazing.
Say it’s not so.. Sparks is no more. I guess we should also say RIP Drunk Nora Doing Marching Band Dance, and RIP Sparks Challenge Becko. Should we re-create Sparks challenge one last time? (6 Sparks in an hour) Guess not..
The Illinois attorney general says ““These drinks are extremely dangerous in the hands of young people. They contain substantially more caffeine than coffee or soda and are marketed as a way to ‘power’ your nights by staying awake and drinking more alcohol. This is a completely inappropriate message to send to younger audiences.”
I KNOW! BOOOOO. via Gawker.
Yum yum turkey
B, you have any insider scoop on this?
I learned this when my old boss Ronnie yelled to me across the cafeteria “did you hear Burlington is the healthiest place in the US? And the least healthy place is the U.S. State Department.” Zing!
Shout of to Molly for sending this to me. Looks delicious. Is this a comment on his skin color? I’m going with yes.
“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”
Want crispy bacon? YES
However, this bacon doesn’t look crispy when she takes it out of the bacon machine. It looks a little flopsy to me, and I don’t like flopsy bacon. I don’t have a dishwasher, so I’m not really sold. I’m also against any kitchen utensil that has only one purpose. So, I guess the verdict on this is a no on this, but thought I’d share anyway.
My friend Max moved to Poland a couple months ago. He sent this to all his friends back in DC.
Greetings from Poland. Life is great, I miss you all, blah, blah, blah.
I really miss Taco Bell. I just want to stuff my face with Nachos Bell Grande and a Chalupa right now. And also eat that extra taco they give you that can be soft or hard-shelled. Fire sauce goes without saying so pretend I didn’t.
A new study says Splenda “contributes to obesity, destroys “good” intestinal bacteria and prevents prescription drugs from being absorbed.”
Splenda says there’s not enough data to support this, so I’m going with them on this, since I’m a Splenda addict and I choose to believe what I want. Also, this study was done by “the lobbying group for the natural-sugar industry and a chief competitor to and legal adversary of Splenda” says the NYT.
I think someone should address the real problem. Namely what are the side-effects were from all that “Slenda-sweet” (i.e. British Splenda knock-off) Nora and I ate for a year in England. Maybe Duke should do a study on THAT shit cause I think there’s crack in it. Look, proof Slenda Sweet is real!! Whoops, I guess it’s from South Africa. Who knew!?
