ObaMulino

September 15, 2009

I’m not sure that eating $36 tomato/mozz demonstrates financial responsibility, but damn, another fine move by our fearless leader (past and present).

Obama and Clinton yesterday at Il Mulino, presumably talking global issues over perhaps the finest bread basket on earth. Kind of makes you wonder, does the suit make the man, or the meal? Either way, good choices all around.

Rolling out... literally... walking is difficult after a meal at Il Mulino

Is this really the way the cookie would crumble?

While watching yesterday’s NFL playoff games I was summonsed by a commercial to ask myself a question for the ages…

Who would win in a contest of eating Double Stuffed Oreos?

I got winner...

I got winner...

The Mannings vs. The Williams

C’mon, are you serious?

  • The Manning brothers, Peyton and Eli, of Super Bowl (and more recently exiting the playoffs early) fame
  • The Williams sisters, Serena and Venus, whose skills,  in addition to the the short skirts of Anna Kournikova, can be personally thanked for the rise in women’s tennis

Seriously though, these aren’t the athletes I would choose in an eating competition.  Below, I have compiled a list of my top 5 eating patners from the wide world of sports… The list is with all due respect to Joey Chestnut, Kobayashi and all the annual Nathan’s competitors.

5. Michael Phelps – plain and simple….you eat 12,000 calories a day, you earn a spot on my chow squad

4. T.O. – the guy stops mid-game to eat… Get’cha popcorn ready

3. Willian “Refridgerator” Perry – read the name, ’nuff said

2. John Daly – put him on a course, sweating and drinking beer to expand the stomach for 5 hours… I guarantee he can pack it away

1. Tony Siragusa – hmmm… The Goose is Jersey born, 340 lbs and owns a fine chain of Jersey Rib houses (Tiffany’s)? Bring it Manning ladies…

I still can’t tell if I care for these ads, I suppose I will find out on 1.18.09. Hey Peyton and Eli, perhaps you could have planned to be busy that day. Maybe helping lead your team to the Super Bowl???

One nation, under DOG!

There has certainly been enough news coverage surrounding the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. Now I’m not saying that I’m not excited, but it raises a question, when is enough, enough already?

Well today I changed my mind on that theory thanks to the below promotion from the Lowes Regency Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City featuring Executive Chef Marc Ehrler and his dog Stinky

Now anyone who knows me understands that I am passionate about a few things: food (obv.), jets/mets, blondie, and of course… BULLDOGS!

I have stayed at the Lowes in Miami… GREAT HOTEL. Thanks to this, I can definitely say that I’ll be back.

Behold the 2009 “inDOGuration”… featuring new items on the Lowes Loves Pets menu…

Stars and Stripes have never tasted so good!

Funny food item here…maybe only for me. 

We’re all familiar of those stories where people see an outline of the Virgin Mary in a slice of toast or their Alpha-Bits cereal spell out something biblical… well I had my own special experience tonight… get ready… a chicken cutlet in the shape of the state of New Jersey… don’t believe it… see below.

Complete with a perfectly shaped Cape May County!

Is this a sign?
