pen and palate rice

Hi, happy Friday, what are you up to this weekend? Lucy has a birthday, after which she has big plans to turn into a cobweb and disappear forever. That’s in addition to: eating Japanese food, eating Chinese food, eating cake, drinking wine, eating more cake, drinking several beers, etc. Rob I hope you’re reading this (hint: bake me a cake). According to the internet, other people on this planet will be doing things like drinking Cheez-It cocktails, ordering from the secret Mister Softee menu(???), and more. Check it out after the jump. Tell us fun things in the comments.

  • Only in Chicago do people drink cocktails made of Cheez-Its and Kimchi. Even the guy who invented this beverage didn’t seem that thrilled about what he came up with, according to HuffPo. “I did the best I could with what I had,” he said. “It was kind of tasty for what it was, I guess.” Tram, go try it for us and write a review?
  • Do you guys watch Comedians in Cars with Coffee, that web series where Jerry Seinfeld drives around with comedians drinking coffee and chatting? It’s pretty delightful. And now he has a new thing called “Single Shot,” which is basically outtakes of the original show edited together. Still delightful!
  • Here is a very extensive take on how one can go off-menu at the Mister Softee truck.
  • This Irish army vet has spent a lot of time coming up with the perfect funeral plan, and it involves: A coffin shaped like a Jack Daniels bottle, a Guinness delivery van instead of a hearse, and a solar-powered iPad whose exact purpose is escaping me a little. This man is so Irish, and such a good planner, I love him. Via GrubStreet.
  • Modern Farmer calls bullshit on the recent slew of “Sushi Nails: Big in Japan!” trend pieces. <3 u, Modern Farmer.

  1. Happy birthday! If at any point your bday starts to lag (though I hope it doesn’t), try watching Boys Over Flowers on Netflix or BBC Skins series 4. The former will make you feel like you have the potential to write a hit TV series at any time. Adios! “What am I doing with my life?” worries. The latter will make you really, really, really glad not to be anywhere near the 16-25 age range.

  2. Thank you ladies! Elle, obviously I have already watched every single season of Skins, so I will get on Boys Over Flowers immediately. It looks…amazing. Thank you for this wonderful bday gift!!

  3. Howdy I am so delighted I found your site, I really found you by
    mistake, while I was searching on Askjeeve for something else,
    Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a fantastic post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but
    I have book-marked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will
    be back to read much more, Please do keep up the
    awesome job.
