Chicken & Waffle Showdown: Gladys Knight’s (ATL) vs. Roscoe’s (LA)

I’ve already traveled the length of the United States just to eat a burger; this time I was motivated by a different type of food. The origin of Chicken & Waffles as a food pairing is somewhat unknown. We know Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing back a waffle iron from France in 1790 (clearly his greatest accomplishment) but … Continue reading

Stadium Snackadium and the Future of the National Foodball League

Yes it’s that time of year again. The incessant squabbling, the unprecendented media coverage of everything but nothing at the same time, the frustration of two sides unable to reach a mutually beneficially solution boiling over to the American people like an unstoppable volcano heading for a petting zoo filled with llama-riding babies. So much … Continue reading

A Letter to Colbert: the Best Prop Ever, Seriously. No, Seriously.

Dear Stephen, I have noticed that your Peabody and one of your Emmys sit alone on a mantel on the set in which you allow members of the general public to reflect upon your greatness, comforted only by a fake fire, an empty red drape, an hourglass showing that Herman Cain’s time has ran out, and what … Continue reading

Battle L.A. Kinda Sucked. Seeing 2 Lead Singers and 3 Movie Stars Didn’t.

Only in Hollywood can “seeing a movie on a Tuesday night” turn into so much more. To think that I almost didn’t go out because it was “late”. Who am I? This whole career thing lurks behind the scenes seizing every opportunity to force feed me crazy things like responsibility and other old people stuff. … Continue reading

Holy Smokes Batman! An Electrical Fire!

Tonight we celebrate the three month anniversary of the Great Fire of 2011. You haven’t heard of the Great Fire of 2011 you say? Oh my! Sit down and buckle up kids. Daddy’s got a story to tell. It all started with a lamp… we guess. Technically it all started as just another Friday, I … Continue reading

How Colorado Kicked my A$$

It’s surprising what 6 months can do to you. I’m sure the 7 ½ pounds of peanut m&ms and lack of cardio didn’t help my case -_- . Nonetheless I made my triumphant return back to the land of red (well some shade of red but that’s neither here nor there since none of you … Continue reading

WTF Moment of the Week

Have you ever had one of those days where you just had to wonder about your purpose on the earth? I’m talking about a day where you have been cast as the world’s porta-potty to be constantly shit on by strangers who’ve eaten too many bacon wrapped chili-dogs at the local fair. Luckily I don’t … Continue reading

The Characters of the Metro Blue Line through Compton

As my time living in Long Beach comes to a close I am beginning to get a bit nostalgic about all the memories I have had during the past 5 months. Besides the many adventures to city fairs and beachside eateries to explore the culinary delights that I have yet to write about, some of … Continue reading

My Pilgrimage from LA to NY to Eat the New York Pizza Burger (pt 1)

Where were you when Michael Jackson died? What were you doing when Obama was elected president? When something big happens people always remember where they were when they heard the news. My moment was no different. I will never forget the moment at work when I read the press release concerning burger king’s new food … Continue reading
