Hello Fresh Gift Card Giveaway Bonanza 2000

Hello Fresh Gift Card Giveaway Bonanza 2000

Historically speaking, we’ve reviewed the meal-in-a-box-delivery solution known as Hello Fresh on more than one occasion (One for the veg, one for the meat – gots to be thorough, people!) and to date, their services still continue to be often imitated by your Plated’s’s and your Blue Apron’s’s’s, but needless to say Hello Fresh has been the most generous with their first time discounts and giveaways. To whit, they’ve granted us a pair of $40 … Read entire article »

Picking Baby Names Is Hard

Dear City That Breeds Family, It’s your friendly, neighborhood, self-appointed Bishop. Big news! My wife and I just had our fifth kid. Yes, I said “fifth.” What?!? So I have five kids?

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

It can be said that in life, there are times, deep dark times – in which you’re completely out of ideas when it comes to what to eat for lunch. For better or worse, even though you want a salad because it’s the responsible thing to do or you just enjoy the texture of baby corn, sometimes you’re ten feet away from the entrance to the Eastern Avenue / Chester St. Burger King, and you’re … Read entire article »

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER. YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER.  YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

Every so often, Checkers offers the “Bacon Philly Cheese Steak Sub”, which looks quite tasty.  I’ve never tried it, but have ingested my fair share of their flagship The BIg Buford, which sounds like a character on The Dukes of Hazzard, or the brand name of an oblong sex device. After YouTubing several fat Rednecks gorging themselves on this “Philly Sub” while making gobbling grunts, I knew I had to try it.  When a Redneck moans, you … Read entire article »

Another Unicorn Dead: Cross Bar License Invalidated

Another Unicorn Dead: Cross Bar License Invalidated

  In setting what could only be described as a dangerous precedent today, Octogenarian Head of the Liquor Board Thomas Ward and Commish Dana Moore voted 2-1 to invalidate the 10,000 year old (but still in use yet) Cross Bar der Biergarten’s (12-18 Cross St, Federal Hill (theoretically)) liquor license, a bar that hasn’t even finished construction. If you’re new to the whole issue, which has been going on for well over a year and change, … Read entire article »

One Summer Day After Practice

One Summer Day After Practice

My car was thick with laughter, exhaustion, and the smell of teenage boy. We’d just finished our summer workout. It was too early in the year for football practice to officially begin, but the team captains were holding “summer trainings.” None of the coaches were present, but we all suspected they were being told which players came and which didn’t. The fear was enough to make us show. These unofficial mandatory practices consisted of little … Read entire article »

The TBD Show is joined by newly minted standup comic Nicki Fuchs (August 16th at Nu Bohemia Cafe, be there!) as they talk stand up comedy, Levy’s attempt to fake Wayne Brady’s death, and some rather graphic Tindr Talk. Good stuff! … Read entire article »

No Idea Tavern is Dead, Long Live No Idea Tavern

No Idea Tavern is Dead, Long Live No Idea Tavern

Do you have No Idea what’s going on? Well let me catch you up some. No Idea’s owner Jason Zink has sold No Idea to one of the same people he sold Don’t Know to back in 2011 in one Ryan Cooper. This frees Zink to focus on his Canton endeavor, Smaltimore. Now, the sale flew under the radar for most people and came as quite a surprise. That didn’t stop them from throwing a … Read entire article »

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

Another one bites the dust Langermann’s on Light Street closed its doors this past Friday. This comes as no surprise to most people. If you were a frequenter of the restaurant, it was not a challenge to stroll in at 7PM on a Friday night and find yourself with prime pickings for any table in the restaurant. I’m actually a little disappointed to hear the news, because the scallops, among other menu items, were so … Read entire article »
