I don't know what it is about Mac and Cheese that makes people so happy. Little kid and full grown adults go CRAZY for a bowl of mac and cheese.
I guess having S'mac, the East Village eatery dedicated to the stuff, just wasn't enough; so the good folks at Cafeteria and Delicatessen seem to be putting the finishing touches on Mac Bar.
Wedged in between McKnally bookstore and the already-open Delicatessen, Mac Bar is rumoured to be dishing out 12 unique varieties of Mac and Cheese. While Delicatessen is a depository for douche bags with so-so cuisine, I hope the comfort food at Mac Bar will be well-worth the trouble of fending the lame and drunken masses.
The first week of July is the tentative date for the opening. Mark your calendars Gluttons.....I sure did! And stay tuned for a full-on Food Porn Review
So I rolled outta bed this morning just in time to hear President Obama, *hey boo*, announce his pick for the Supreme Court, Federal Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
Don't be fooled by the rocks that she's got, Senora Sonia hails from Da Boogie Down Bronx. Lil Sonia grew up in the Bronxdale Housing Projects and went on to earn degrees from Princeton University and Yale Law School.
If Judge Sotomayor is confirmed, she will be the first Female Hispanic to serve on the Supreme Court. AZUCAR!!
BY NOW YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT HER "EDGY" & "ORIGINAL" SENSE OF STYLE.
WE DON'T CARE WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE NEKKID WE DON'T CARE WHAT SHE WORE TO THE MET GALA WE DON'T CARE THAT SHE FORGOT TO CURL HER NAPS TODAY AND ITS DEEMED FIERCE
UNTIL SHE STUMBLES UPON SOME REAL TALENT OR SEEKS THERAPY.......I DON'T WANNA HEAR NAN ABOUT HER. SHE IS OFFICIALLY THE PINK ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. ITS ALL A DIVERSION LADIES AND GENTLEMAN......AND I WANTS NONE OF IT!!
Before I could even get the gettin' whilst the gettin' was good, along come the FTC, Federal Trade Commision hindering a sister's greatness!!
The FTC has announced new regulations that would require bloggers to disclose monetary and material compensation provided by companies seeking exposure in the blogosphere More commonly known as Payola, pay for play, the FTC wants bloggers to be upfront with readers about the source of the merchandise that they endorse or review favorably. In a time when advertising budgets are rapidly shrinking, and consumers are looking to man-on-the-street blogs versus Consumer's Digest and larger publications for the final word in spending, blogs have become a cheap alternative. Rather than shelling out big bucks for ad space in mags, in their merciful benevolence companies send out freebies to needy and deserving bloggers, who in turn might-or-might-not praise the merchandise. Now where is the harm in that?!?! I like to think of it as the Corporation/Editorial/Consumer Circle of Life.....like in The Lion King.
The bugs eat the grass, the animals eat the bugs, the animals then eat each other, and we eat the animals. SEE?!?! One hand feeds the other. No body moves, No body gets hurt.
THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION = HATERS
Cuz truthfully they just wanna know how much merch is being trafficked so that they can tax it. All the government ever wants to do is take their cut off the top and let the populace share the crumbs. Biggie said it best "Damn, Why the Wanna Stick Me for My Paper?"
For realz tho.....I'm chewing as I type. Still not sure why I don't weigh 300 pounds as yet. My diet consists of Champagne, Chocolate, Turkey Bacon, Pancakes, and Beer. My children's children will be paying for this when they're born with love handles and B cup hormone-boobies. God bless America
Beyonce, Gaga and Rihanna should, and quite possibly could, collectively sue for infringement.
And why is she rocking Cornrows on in 2009?!?! Girl you just box yourself out by doing nonsense like that. Really tho....you can't be rocking Maison Martin Margiela & Alexander Wang with cornrows. You just can't!
If you're willing to spend that much on a bomb-ass stylist to borrow that stuff for you (I know you didn't buy it); spend a tad more on your yaki-game. Cuz this tired drawstring ponytail from senior prom, is not gonna make it.
BTWss cop yours here EARLY !!!!! Its 18 inches for JUST $9.99
ANYHOO....I didn't get up and blog to spread negativity today, but rather love. You know what Biggie said "Spread Love its the Brooklyn Way" Cop your subscription to New York MAG
While I have no faith in Ashanti doing a semi-decent job, I think everyone else should be able to hit the mark. I'm sure Mizz Ross will be present, tipsy of course, front and center opening night waiting for 'Shanti to hit a wrong note, miss a line or prayin for her lace front to slip in the middle of Act 2. And by Mizz Ross, I mean ME....
This Just In: New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is the new Bush!
Apparently the city is New Orleans is over its mayor, Ray Nay, and is ready for him to pack his bags and call Tyrone (Ooh!! remember that song??) In a recent poll conducted by University of New Orleans, Ray Nay received the worst reported approval rating since 1986; and that was the during the Crack Epidemic
Nagin's approval rate this year clocked in at 24%, a considerable drop from last year's 31%. Comparatively Nagin was rated as the 3rd "biggest problem" for New Orleans.... right after crime and education. It's got to be one sad-ass day when your cities Mayor is almost as bad as your cities crime..... But wait, this all sounds oddly familiar
"Bitch Set Me Up"
Well at least Marion Barry got reelected after all his fuckery.
Nawlin's folk want him out so bad that they're even selling bumper stickers trumpeting the countdown to his final day in office. We are in a recession y'all..... MAKE. THAT. MONEY.
