If you’re looking to expand your pallet a bit The House of William and Merry is the place to do it. Last week I stopped in there and had three items that I had never had before. […]
Delicious Cravings Food Truck is awesome. Last week this culinary Jesus shined his food light on me and I may be madly in love.
So after very short hiatus the Freak contacted me to tell me that he is doing a dumplin eating contest in Philadelphia at Sang Keen Noodle House. He will be hanging with some of his buddies from wing bowl like Shittsburgh I mean Pittsburgh Paulie, Dave Brunelli, and for the love of god Heather Cahill. Go ahead click that link, you won’t be disappointed. The gist of the competition is to finish 58 Dumplings (48 for women) in 45 minutes, and your meal is on Sangkee, plus receive a $88 Sangkee Gift Card. So basically no chewing, just swallowing. My pick is on a certain contender that I believe can swallow all day, yup Pittsburgh Paulie. You sly fuckers, I know what you were going to say. It’s almost dumplin time.
Wing Bowl is just days away and The Freak continues to prepare for the greatest competitive eating contest known to man. The festivities will kick off with the weigh in and pre-party at Chickie’s and Petes in South Philly. This is the party to start the mother of all parties. Then on Feb 2nd at the Wells Fargo Center the party will begin, WING BOWL 26.
I will tell you the tale of a man who is a legend, mainly in his own mind, but his growing popularity is that of an active volcano, we are all waiting for it to erupt. His claim to fame seems to come from lies and wise tales yet many have been there to either witness or be implicated in one of his acts. His mind wonders a bit and he doesn’t sit still much, or he sits still too much it’s kinda weird to explain. Either way this man has gone by many names, Stephen, Stephano, The Aquatic Giant, TAL, T, Frankie, SLAM, and the finally the Freak. He rarely matches his clothes which adds to the oddity of his character. He may be wearing a black fur with red shorts, or plaid pants with an off-color V-neck. It doesn’t make sense nor should it. He is more cartoon character than real human. Most stories start with, “hey remember that time he did this or did that”. You all laugh and the new guy says “No Fucking Way.” You chuckle, shake your head and walk away, he doesn’t know any better. Recently the Freak added small but new accolades to his growing resume of I can’t believe he is doing that tasks. He was in an independent short film, is a professional boxer (March 24th), had a beer named after his alter ego ” The Selfie King of Delaware”, and now has made it to competitive eater. The Freak will be participating in Wing Bowl on February 2nd.
This thing is awesome. Love comfort food, and making fall meals. This crock pot meal feeds the fam and then some. It only takes about a half hour to prep and about 3-4 hours in […]
This week my oldest had a bit of a fever so we couldn’t really head out much. Instead we cooked. First we made brownies, she wanted to surprise her mother, it worked. Then I convinced […]

A couple of days ago I went with a group of friends and co-workers to Philadelphia. I love this city and the history of it. More than anything I love the food the city presents. […]
