Last Call: Get Ready For Epic Meal Time Cooking Equipment
Food Republic: First they’re getting a cooking competition, now they’re getting their own branded line of extreme cooking equipment? Oh goodness, the Epic Meal Time boys are becoming celebrity chefs. (It’s very likely that we’ll soon see a Muscles Glasses travelogue show.)
Huffington Post: It’s time for some extreme math: Bloody Mary + shrimp + cherry tomato + lemon wedge + Polish sausage + cheese + pickled asparagus + scallion stalk + pickle + pickled mushroom + onion + brussels sprout + stalk of celery + bacon cheeseburger + chaser of beer = The Sobelman Pub’s Fully-Loaded, Cheeseburger-Bloody Mary = it costs $9. (Whaaaaaat?)
Jezebel: Okay, civet coffee — coffee beans that have been digested and retrieved from, er, civet droppings — just went to a whole ‘nother level of completely, disgustingly messed up. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but here’s a hint: imagine the human body as a factory.
WHDH: After a thoroughly unsatisfying meal at a New Hampshire Friendly’s, a family was pretty happy to find that their entire meal had been comped, via a “100% shitshow” discount on their receipt. The Friendly’s corporation? Not so much.
NOLA.com: And now, for news that has nothing to do with crap, but is still pretty crappy: the Brennan Family Restaurants successfully prevented their crown jewel, Brennan’s Restaurant, from being auctioned off by Orleans Parish. Hooray for them maintaining their property — but pretty crappy that the owners of Commander’s Palace and dozens of other classic institutions are at this point.
