Dynasty Cafeteria

What did we do last week? Not much, we just built a restaurant. You know, then we drank some beer and thought a little harder about what would be cool to eat while we were drinking it. Typically, salty stuff, carby stuff, baked stuff, cheap stuff, deep fried stuff, fresh fruit. You know what sucks? Paying a lot of money for food that tastes like crap. You know what rules? Getting really good food that tastes like nothing you’ve ever had for not that much money.

We just opened up a micro-restaurant inside 285 Kent Ave, home of a new music venue, art space, Babycastles arcade, and also, it’s in the old “Paris London West Nile” space. We pretty much serve the best snacks. It’s dirt cheap, why even bother eating at home, you can eat here everyday, and probably save money, you know what I mean?

Here’s a taste of what our menu looks like:

Grape Kool-Aid Fritters $3

Waffle Grilled Cheese $3

Pizza Waffle Sandwich $4 or $5 w/pepperoni

Black Bean and Queso Muffins $2

BBQ Tofu Summer Rolls $2 or 3/$5

Spicy Boiled Peanuts $3

Lime Coconut Bars $2

Fat Watermelon Slice $1

Fruit Flavored Ice Pops 2/$1

We add new stuff almost everyday, so no one gets bored.

AND we open DAILY 8PM-1AM!!!!!! Who knows how long we can keep this up for!

DISHWASHER CUISINE


One night, Emily Weidemann had the bright idea to cook dinner in the dishwasher. She supplied the fresh fish and leftovers, and I brought over some perogies and artichokes.

The dishwasher only got about as hot as around 225 degrees or so in the dry cycle, so things that need reheated, or don’t need much to cook did well (fish, reheated pasta, perogies). The artichokes totally failed. I tried putting the artichokes through a few more cycles in the dishwasher, but after about 3 cycles, I realized it was pretty silly and futile, and gave up on the artichokes. We ate everything else, and it was totally fine!

What’s a Hot Dog and More Origins

It seems like I’m on a little blogging spree! Man! This is my 4th blog tonight! I’m on a roll! It’s because we are very close to wrapping up a project that we’ve been working on for the past couple months. The old Winty Crew thought we might try our hand at making some animations, because we all like to draw and we all have active imaginations.

This new project is called The Misguided Guide to the Origin of Everything! I prepared a little statement here about our project:

The Misguided Guide to the Origin of Everything is an animation series that follows two dim-witted kids, Willy and Tiffy, as they walk around their neighborhood, and encounter all sorts of weird characters, such as a crabby man, a weirdo in a pizza shop, a cat and a dog, their grampa, an alien, and so on. As they do so, they become inspired to ask questions about the world. Where does this come from? Where does that come from? Why is this like that?

Each episode will delve deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the world, from mundane and tangible topics (what is dust?), to grand and abstract enigmas (what is time?). Unburdened by reality and facts, everyone has an absurd answer to life’s mysteries, leaving their black and white reality, and entering a full-color world of imagination.

And here’s a little teaser:

New clips soon!

Wasabi doritoes

Look at this, it’s real. And it’s got a mild wasabi kick to it and I guess a soy sauce flavor. Matt Fitzpatrick suggested these be might as well be called “Ching ching” chips, and I would concur!!!

Btw I got these at the bodega around the corner from the film forum.

Fried Chicken Videos.

Today  on a never ending email chain that many Food Party blog contributors are on, there was a short but brief discussion about fast food chicken products, thanks in part to this lady.

This eventually led to me posting this internet (is this racist?) classic:

Followed by this wonder from South Korea:

I would post some of the videos from the times Popeyes and KFC were giving away fried chicken but ran out of chicken and people freaked out and ended up on the news, but then I would be here all day. I’ll end it with the following two things.

The first is a Pulp Fiction line I paraphrase from time to time. It’s from when Tim Roth and Samuel L. Jackson are talking about whatever in the diner at the end:
“Normally, both your asses would be dead as fucking fried chicken, but you happen to pull this shit while I’m in a transitional period so I don’t wanna kill you, I wanna help you. But I can’t give you this case, it don’t belong to me. Besides, I’ve already been through too much shit this morning over this case to hand it over to your dumb ass. “

And of course, Delonte’s classic KFC freestyle:

Peace and chicken grease.
