Green Burritos or: How I Learned to Free Willy and Stop Fearing Spirulina

I get it dude, I was there once too. I think I was like five or six, playing hide and go seek around the house. I snuck into my mom’s secret closet of goodies to hide.

Where We Eat: Give & Grub Food Truck

Everyone knows that the more people that get involved in something, the more likely it is to be ruined. There’s even an ancient proverb that speaks directly to keeping collaborations to a minimum: “too many cooks spoil the broth”. I think it is time to mark that proverb with a big ol’ asterisk, one that is footnoted at the bottom with the words “the exception to this proverb is Tampa’s Give & Grub […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Valentine’s Day Tacos?

Employees were called to their boss’ office, reception area or mail room in droves the last two days. Most of them weren’t losing their jobs, getting an earful from the secretary or fixing the fact that they forgot to put a stamp on some outgoing mail. No, they were there to receive their latest tokens of love. These tokens probably came in one (or two or three) of several […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Sadnecessary by Milky Chance?

In the last eleven months I don’t think there’s an album I’ve enjoyed as much as I’ve enjoyed German folk-pop duo Milky Chance’s Sadnecessary. From start to finish, I’ve eaten that shit up. I love the way the band takes low key, mid-tempo acoustic pop, shoves it into an espresso machine and steams it with a side of DJ production. You know that former dance club kid that now […]

Food Flavored Song: Michelada by Cold Blood Club

It’s a bit hard for me to tell but I swear to god that Cold Blood Club’s new single “Michelada” drops the line “did someone spike your Jamaica” a number of times. If that’s the case, this track will easily become J-Fur’s new fav. Since her study abroad trip to Mexico, circa 2000, she has searched high and low for a version of Jamaica that […]
