UNLIMITED  ICE CREAMZ MADE BY BROOKLYN’S FINEST HOME COOKS, DOODS!!!!

2015 Brooklyn Mac and Cheeze Brontosaurus Attak!

Here’s the wrap up – you had to see it to believe it!  A 20 ton Mac and Cheeze Kaiju spiraled into existance from a cheeze typhoon created by 25 local home cooks – it stomped around The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, destroying everything in its path with its power cheeze breath while everyone laughed and laughed!  Sadly, the kaiju emits special xray power rays that render photographs impossible.

Here are all the winners and stuff!  Thank you, cooks!!!!!!  You are the best people ever! Continue reading

Austin Taco Takedown – unsheath your laser swords and fights!!!!

tacoaustinCALL FOR AUSTIN HOME COOKS! Email me at chilitakedown@gmail.com to compete for huge prizes (see below!)!!! El Milagro sponsors!

I get to visit Austin a couple times a year- to eat tacos at the finest taco places, find out about migas and melt brains on good Tex Mex.  Why can’t NYC understand tacos like Austin do? Why is Tex Mex apparently impossible to pull off anywhere out East?  And why do Austin’s homecooks be so handsome? I want to see them food fight! Don’t you?

March 15 2-4PM at Shangri La – during SXSW!!! Eat a bajillion home made tacos as Austin’s home cooks reimagine, or go authentic, depending on what’s their fancies…

WANT TO EAT MUCH TACOS? TICKETS HERE!

PS  Takedown art this time is by Viking Truthslayer Andy Belanger, also noted for his work with The Sword, Austin’s most furious of righteous bands!!!!
