National Junk Food Day; What Did You Eat?

This is a “holiday” I can really get into. I woke up hungry for junk, too. Something that would blow my diet into the next zip code. Not comfort food, like those little cocktail weenies wrapped in croissant dough and baked. No, I wanted something with salt, fat, calories and way too much flavor.

What I […]

Friday Follies: Fast Food War in Japan? I Want What They’ve Got…

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2012»

Oh, those fun-loving and fast-food-chomping Japanese; they do everything in such a big way! For example, there’s been a “fast food war” on in Japan for at least a couple of years now. First, it was chicken in the crosshairs. In 2010, KFC and McDonald’s started […]

Texas RenFest 2011: Yes, They Had No Wildfires; Go! It’s Great…

We didn’t make opening weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, but we got there as quick as we could. Only to run into a big ol’ batch of pirates. It was Pirate Adventure Weekend! The opening show was stuffed with silliness, and the only thing missing was a crowd. Attendance was down, […]

Friday Follies: Ultra-Affluent Families Change Restaurant Dining Habits in These Parlous Times

It’s not exactly a sign of the impending Apocalypse, but it IS interesting. Sort of…

It would appear that the downturn has begun to force the ultra-affluent in America to change their eating habits. They’re still spending (Thank goodness, or it really WOULD be the end of the world), and even spending in restaurants. However, […]

Friday Follies: Maybe the Birth of a McDonalds Adult Beverage (or How You Don't Need to Grow Up, Ever)

In an attempt to catch up on some stuff that’s now only a year old bring you the latest in life-changing, fast-food news, we share with you an article recently shown in the new, improved Slashfood. It seems that a couple of budding young mixologist wannabes have “invented” (I’m sure that word is completely […]

Friday Follies (Sort Of): “Can I Get Meth With That?”

In a bid to give “fast food” a whole new meaning, a manager at a Sonic drive-in recently cooked up a lot more than an Ex-Long Chili Cheese Coney with Tater Tots. You see, he was also cooking up methamphetamines. On store property, in the restaurant’s equipment. According to the Associated Press,

Police arrived at […]

Friday Follies: Mona Lisa Smile, Interrupted by Ronald McDonald

I don’t know if this is evidence of the advanced state of the French culture, or (more likely) proof that Europe is sliding into complete rot and decadence. It IS verification that fast food is more acceptable and accesible than ever before…

A recent report confirms that McDonald’s will be opening at the Louvre. Yes, […]
