Alas, it is time for a vacation. Pennsylvania, DC, and New York beckon. I will be back shortly. Cheers!

Pour Some Agave on Me Mix: PVT, Young Galaxy, Bandit Teeth, Marnie Stern, Mikrofisch, 38 Souls, Chappo, Arab Strap, Germany Germany, Wale, and more

Back in 1987 Def Leppard rushed to number 2 on the Us Billboard Hot 100 charts with their hit song “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” The bands producer, John “Mutt” Lange, was the inspiration behind the song. He thought it up during a coffee break. Word has it that had agave nectar, a commercially produced liquid sweetener from Mexico that I have come to enjoy […]


Oatmeal Cream Pies softened by Nenna Yvonne

Little Debbie products have been in existence since 1960 when O.D. McKee decided to package and sell his Oatmeal Cream Pies. Looking for a catchy brand he decided to name his snack cake line after his four year old granddaughter, Debbie. Her parents had no idea until after the first cartons were printed that their daughters name and image were being used. Little Debbies are […]


Where we Eat: Datz Delicatessen and Foodie’s Market open Mic’d by the Sarcastic Dharma Society

(photo courtesy of Florida Trend) Datz Delicatessen and Foodie’s Market is a place we end up a lot. Our friends love it because they have huge sandwiches slathered with meat and cheese, micro-brewed beers on tap, wonderful looking desserts and it is easy to get to. As a vegetarian, non-drinker I find Datz to be average. There are some things about the restaurant that I […]


Movie Food: Dinner for Schmucks Orzo with Greens and Meeting of Important People

I was lucky enough to catch a premiere showing of Dinner For Schmucks last night at Muvico. I had a nice reserved spot thanks to DF and her husband Jay (he is a blind movie critic, check out his site here). The movie wasn’t all that spectacular, it made me laugh but it was very cliched and predictable. My favorite scene was the idiot dinner, […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Pink Lemonade by Hot Lava

Perhaps you were a Native American drink colored with sumac berries. Or maybe you were discovered by a man who ran away to join the circus and accidentally dropped red cinnamon candies into a lemonade container thus coloring you red. Were you colored by red horse rider tights (not a very palatable explanation if you ask me)? Did someone cut a finger and see the […]


Vegan Crab Cakes with Red Pepper Aioli, Gilbere Forte, Freelance Whales and the Toadies

I didn’t sleep or shower the night before my senior class trip to Baltimore, MD. I was too busy clowning around in a life size iguana cage. To try and hide my fatigue and poor hygiene, I wore a sweater and a knit cap. Unfortunately my attire drew the attention of some mall cops in Baltimore and they kicked me out. This was a big […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Dear Spike by the Aquabats

Dear Spike, I don’t know you, personally, but I do know about you. I have heard that you were invented by Gayelord Hauser, a self-help author and nutritionist, to help make food taste good and be healthy at the same time. I also know you contain upwards of 39 different spices, herbs and seasonings and that you contain no MSG. I thought about you today […]


The Octagon, Kids without Bikes and Shells stuffed with Tofu and Spinach

Shells and I haven’t interacted much. While my mom and sister were hunting them on the beach I was jumping hurricane sized waves with my brother. As my uncle and brother fired them at the shooting range I was miles away doing my best Iker Casilla impression. And as my college roommates paired them with Velveeta cheese for dinner, I was too busy mixing corn […]
