Macaulay Culkin’s Pizza-Themed Band, The Pizza Underground, Helps Open A Pizza Place In London

Because, Pizza

So, former Home Alone star Macauly Culkin has started up a new band he calls The Pizza Underground (inspired by The Velvet Underground) and, as far as I can tell, everything that the band does is pizza related. Sounds like a brilliant idea, right? The Pizza Underground have made their way to the UK for a tour there and last night paid a visit to a pizza place in London called Yard Sale Pizza for their grand opening because … pizza. Click below to see photos of Macauly and The Pizza Underground at Yard Sale Pizza last night and check out a promo video that better explains what The Pizza Underground is all about. More »

The Top ‘Chef’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Tamar for a movie/dinner date that we planned last weekend and despite the fact that the temperature here in LA is hotter than Hades this week, we braved the heat to spend some time together … in a very chilly air conditioned movie theater :) Tam really wanted to see a new movie and because I’ve seen a few new movies in the past few weeks, we decided to see the new Jon Favreau movie Chef. I hadn’t heard of Chef before last night but Tam convinced me that it looked good. She was right, the movie is pretty good. Naturally, there are some problems with the movie overall but for the most part, I really enjoyed it. More »

DTLAwesome

The TV Guide

After far too much time since our last hang, I met up with Ollie in DTLA for a late dinner and hang session so that we could catch up with one another. Ollie has been working really hard lately so I really appreciate that she was able to take some time to meet up for a bite to eat with me. Ollie suggested we try out a place called Baco Mercat since I had never been there before. See, Ollie has really great taste because that place was really damn good. Good friend + good food = a really great nice. More »

Häagen-Dazs Is Releasing Vegetable-Flavored Ice Cream

In Japan because, Duh

Häagen-Dazs is known for their rich, creamy, delicious flavors of ice cream … which today, we learn, they are putting ALL ON THE LINE with the forthcoming release of two versions of vegetable-flavored ice cream. For some reason, the company thinks the world is ready for ice cream that tastes like tomatoes, carrots, etc. and they have chosen the country of Japan to introduce these new flavors. Honestly, it makes all the sense in the world that Häagen-Dazs would release vegetable-flavored ice cream in Japan cuz they LOVE weird stuff like this. I can’t say that it sounds very tasty to me but … hey, I’m sure someone will love it, right? More »

She Bangs

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with one of my most favoritest people in the world for a long overdue hang session at a fun little place in Koreatown called Toe Bang. My BFF Ollie informed me of the fantastic happy hour that they do at Toe Bang so I figured, yeah, let’s do it. Honestly, I was really only interested in hanging out with Ollie since we haven’t had the chance to do so for far too long. I missed out on seeing her Tuesday night when I was in DTLA so our hang out last night was a must for me. As expected, Ollie and I only had the best time ever … as we are wont to do :) More »

Party Like It’s Nineteen ‘Eighty Two’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Emma and Josh for a dinner hang in Koreatown/DTLA after we talked about doing something fun the last time we hung out on Sunday night. Emma had heard about a new place called Pot that supposedly offers up amazing Korean pot dishes. I have been wanting to go to a new barcade called Eight Two that just opened in DTLA so we decided to have dinner at Pot and then head out to Eighty Two for some arcade video game fun. Dinner was good but not amazing. The barcade was fun and pretty amazing. More »

Burger King Offers To Cater Kanye West’s Wedding

Yes, please

Earlier this week we learned of a report that claims that Kanye West purchased a group of Burger King restaurant franchises in Europe as a wedding gift for his babymama/fiancée and today we learn that the fine folks at Burger King have graciously offered to cater Kanye‘s upcoming nuptials. I mean, it makes total sense for a fast food restaurant mogul like Kanye (who also owns a few Fatburger franchises in the greater Chicago, IL area) to enjoy fast food at his wedding reception so … yeah, this sounds like a great idea to me!

Dunkin’ Donuts Is Releasing Peeps Donuts For Easter

A match made in heaven

Having grown up in Michigan, I am well aware of the amazingness of Dunkin’ Donuts. Because there are no Dunkin’ Donuts stores here in Southern California (yet), I’ve gotten used to living my life without a little Dunkin’ in it. Normally, I’m able to get thru the day without missing those delicious donuts … until now. Dunkin’ Donuts has announced that they are releasing Peeps-flavored donuts for the Easter holiday this year and they look so damn good, I’m actually contemplating a move BACK to the Midwest just so I can indulge. Ok, I’m not really planning to move but the concept of a Dunkin’ donut married with a Peeps marshmallow is enough to make me want to do some crazy things. MMMM. More »

The ‘New Girl’ On The Block

The TV Guide

Alas … my time here at the beach is quickly coming to an end. My dear friends Emma and Josh will be returning home from their holiday later tonight … which means I have to pack up my bags and return home — far from the sunny warmth of Manhattan Beach. Sigh. I have had a really great time maxin’ and relaxin’ here on my mini-vacay for the past two weeks but as with all good things, my short holiday from the city must come to an end. I did my best to enjoy my final night alone here at the beach. I spent some time outside, hung out at the beach for a while, went out for a drink, came home with a pizza. I also started binge-watching a new show. On the advice of Prince and my BFF Sarah, I decided to start watching New Girl. I started with season 1 and am just about ready to start season 2. I have to admit, the show is pretty funny. More »

Kanye West Reportedly Bought His Fiancée A Burger King Franchise As A Wedding Present

Have It Your Way

So, er, there is a report coming out of the UK that claims that Kanye West purchased a few Burger King franchises in Europe as a wedding gift for his babymama. Honestly, I figured this was just a ridiculous hoax when I first heard it but the fact that Kanye already owns a few Fatburger locations in Chicago, IL lends credence to this Burger King report. As I understand it, Kanye — ever the businessman — understands that fast food franchises make a lot of money so … I guess he felt a few BK franchises would make a nice investment gift for his fiancée. Seems legit, right? More »
