It's time for our yet another edition of our monthly series, FIPS Food Throwdowns.  And I don't know about you bitches, but if I think "delivery," I think pizza. 

So, what two places should we try out?  Who has the best pizza in Park Slope?  Tell me tell me tell me!

FIPS Cares: Show Me The Money

The husband has a new(ish) mantra that goes something like this...

"You want (fill in the blank: to go to Vienna for Christmas? to buy a front door? to pay the bills?) Get a job!"

To which I reply:

"I have a job. In fact, I have many jobs."

To which he replies:

"A real job. As in one that involves a salary and perhaps a subway."

Yes, I'm getting the distinct sense that my time of playing June to his Ward is drawing to a close.

I'm with him. In principle.

ESPN Match Truck: World Cup B.S. AND Delish Food

Yo, so if you're looking for another spot to watch this World Cup insanity, and don't mind standing out on the sidewalk with 11 billion strollers and homeless people, you can come to GAP today from 9am-5pm and hit up the ESPN Match Truck.

They'll be showing shit all day.

More importantly (in my eyes, however) they're also serving food from all over the world, with a menu designed by the LA-based Kogi BBQ truck chef Roy Choi.

Here's a detailed rundown of how all the food tastes, and you can also follow the action on Twitter from the Match Truck's offish account.

WHO GIVES A SHIT: Best Places to Watch the World Cup?

 

The World Cup is awesome.  The universe comes together to hate on each other through the vehicle of attractive men playing soccer, which cues most people in the US turn to the foreign friends they have and say, "We're supposed to be caring about this, yes?"

I, for one, do give a shit about the World Cup, as you might have guessed.  So, as USA vs. England kicks off today at 2:30 (yes, I realize this is a photo of Wayne Rooney and not Landon Donovan, but come on, it's Wayne fucking Rooney), where are y'all going to be watching?

The awesome Korean lady from Brownstone Cleaners was standing outside of Okeanos at like 8:30 am, watching South Korea beat the shit out of Greece through the windows.  (She > you.)  So, you can go that route, or try out these suggestions from the crowd: 

  • Old Carriage Inn, which has a big projector situation going on.  That's where I'll probably be.
  • Black Horse Pub, the choice of Brooklynian.
  • The Dram Shop, so you can burger while you watch.
  • Loki, which I personally hate, but listed for Allison and a bunch of you who dig this place (see, I listen to you).
  • 200 Fifth, duh.

 Anything else to add to the list?  And come on, USA, let's not embarrass ourselves too badly.

Happy BELATED Lame-Ass School Holiday Formerly Known as Brooklyn Queens Day

ed note: I shoulda posted this shit last week, but I suck so I didn't.

So, as with almost all days (and weeks) off of school, the holiday formerly known as B/Q Day came as a somewhat unwelcome surprise. Even more so when I realized the night before that it was also my double at the food coop.

So instead of sharing meaningful moments like the one above at the beauteous and nearby Botanical Gardens, I spent four hours and twenty minutes doing this.

Only I wasn't smiling.
