Hot Chicken

I love getting unique food whenever I'm in new places, and I knew one of the places I wanted to stop on my trip to Alabama was in Nashville for hot chicken. Now, we found a little hole-in-the-wall place (that had great reviews on Yelp) so my brother and I decided to stop.

They had four levels of spice on the menu - mild, medium, spicy, and extra hot. I wanted to be adventurous, but I also wanted to be able to feel my face so I went with medium. It was an excellent choice. Flavorful, but with a good kick.

My 22-year old brother on the other hand, went with "spicy" and when the waitress laughs when the white kid from the North orders, you know it might be have a little kick. About 40 napkins, a gallon of tears and an extra stop at McDonalds for vanilla ice cream, I think the burn finally subsided.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd probably choose the same thing. My brother, probably not so much.

National French Fry Day



These made-up holidays are mostly stupid...unless they're delicious. I can get on board with National French Fry Day. Here are my favorite preparations of the classic dish.

5. Baked, homemade, with melted parmesan
-Actually made these last night. Salty and delicious.
Not quite that fancy, but you get the gist.
4. Fast food fries dipped in sweet and sour sauce
-Don't knock it until you've tried it
3.On top of a Primanti Bros. sandwich
-A Pittsburgh classic
via PrimantiBros.com
2. Drenched in nacho cheese and bacon
-Clearly the healthiest method, especially when eaten out of a helmet at a ballgame
Gotta get all that cheese outta there

1. Sweet Potato Fries with Maple Syrup.
-First had them at Howie's, and they're life-changing.

Super Bowl

The game came and went, but the commercials will live forever.

Quickly: I thought the Panthers' loss can be blamed on their O-line and their wideouts. Cant' block, can't catch, can't win. The Broncos had like one legit touchdown drive. The Denver defense played well, but Carolina maybe made them look better than they were.

Now, onto the important stuff.

National Anthem: Second-best ever, only to Whitney Houston. You go, Gaga. But what was that suit?


Commercials: Solid, but not spectacular. PuppyMonkeyBaby was effective, but creepy. I'm not sure I'll look at Doritos the same way again. Too many prescription drug advertisements. The NFL Super Bowl babies spot was my favorite.


Halftime:



Coldplay is meh. Beyonce might be the queen, but Bruno Mars reminds me more and more of Michael Jackson. What a showman.

New Way To Cook Turkey

Sure, deep frying a turkey is kinda dangerous and makes it taste delicious, but after seeing this video, there's no going back to a "traditional" method.

Have you seen the kid play 71 different Beatles songs in five minutes...on the drums?!?!



Insane talent and concentration.
