immense midwest cold generates innovative get-togethers.

January 23rd, 2011 · Comments Off on immense midwest cold generates innovative get-togethers.

If I weren’t working all day today, I would be cozied up at the Empty Bottle in Chicago for their First Annual Synthesizer Chili Cook-Off.  I’ve never been much of a chili gal, can’t do spice and don’t do a whole lot of meat…but this bizarre pairing of experimental music and homemade chili has got […]

bodum’s chambord milk frother.

January 3rd, 2011 · 2 Comments

This Christmas my parents surprised me with a Bodum Chambord Milk Frother. I had technically asked for a milk frother, pointing my mom in the direction of the Aerolatte version.

paris versus new york blog.

November 2nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Vahram Muratyan‘s Paris vs New York blog is genius. It basically confirms my belief that Americans could take a cue from the French when it comes to the finer things in life — coffee, good bread, and film. And we wonder why Americans are so fat. Based on the food and beverage comparisons alone, Paris vs New York […]

would you drink beer out of a taxidermied squirrel?

October 22nd, 2010 · Comments Off on would you drink beer out of a taxidermied squirrel?

Neither would we. But BrewDog of Scotland thought it’d give it a whirl. The microbrewery created “The End of History” — a limited edition brew with a 55% alcohol content. And, because the insanely high alcohol content wasn’t crazy enough, BrewDog decided to package the beers in taxidermied animals. Thankfully for the sake of the […]

in an attempt to fight the end of summer…

September 25th, 2010 · 4 Comments

I’d like to take a moment to stare the chill of fall right in the eyes and boldly deny the irrelevance of popsicles at this time of year.  After all, today may not reach 60 degrees, but yesterday Chicago threw me a curveball landing in the high 80s.  Bottom line,  I’m feeling confused and torn […]
