Shut up and take my money!
I laughed at this way more than I should have.
After residents of Irwindale, California sued the maker of Sriracha hot sauce due to headaches, burning eyes, and irritated throats, a superior court judge sided with the community. The company was ordered to shut down the local sauce-making plant.

A brilliant idea and a hilarious show
Earlier this week we popped in to Percy Street Barbecue for the first time in too long. While we were there stuffing ourselves with ham plates, biscuits and brisket fries when we were told that happy hour was changing the next day. And one of the things that would be on the new $5 happy hour menu, the above chicken biscuit situation. It’s Percy’s buttermilk biscuit, topped with fried chicken thighs, cheddar sauce, hot sauce and pickled apples.
Happy hour is just that at Percy Street. Monday to Friday, from 5 to 6 p.m. And that’s the only time the fried chicken biscuit is available.

I CAN"T BELIEVE I MISSED THIS
Big news for the geeks in the crowd. As I’m sure you are already all aware, the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is on November 23. And while I can totally understand those of you who want to just climb into your dalek costumes and spend the day at home in front of the TV, for those of a more social bent, there’s this:
On Saturday, November 23, the Victoria Freehouse in Old City will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary (Whoniversary?) in style, with themed food and drinks (jelly babies, jammie dodgers, fish fingers and custard–you know, that sort of thing) and the 50th anniversary episode showing on two separate flatscreens, starting promptly at 2:50pm.
You probably want to get there early to score a good seat. And to get a jump on celebrating the stunning, five-decade run of one of the best science fiction TV shows ever. And if you have one, don’t forget your fez. Because fezzes are cool.

Kraftwork in Fishtown is offering a special Filet & Foie Cheesesteak this week. Chef Brian Lofink is going all up-market on the cheesesteak as he stuffs an almost-foot-long French roll with the filet mignon, foie gras and black truffles.
The cheesesteak is on the dinner menu through Black Friday and features filet tips, roasted balsamic cippolini onions, gruyère cheese and a foie gras sauce.
The cheesesteak sells for $16 or for $28, you can get it topped with black truffle shavings.
Hustle for the truffles, though, they’ll only be available while truffle supplies last.
This can't be real...
I have no info on this series of photos but it is kind of creepy.
I read the 5 year anniversary piece last year which was really good.
This one is my favorite.
This thing is terrifying
You don't need Vine. You just need the best of Vine compilations.
This is going to be amazing. Waterfront Winterfest extends Philadelphia's outdoor dining and entertainment season well into winter with a pop-up bar and restaurant, fire pits and more at the Blue Cross RiverRink. (Rendering by Groundswell Design Group)
This winter, Penn’s Landing’s Blue Cross RiverRink celebrates 20 years of ice skating on the Delaware River by transforming the annual waterfront rink into a veritable winter wonderland.
Opening right after Thanksgiving Day on Friday, November 29, Waterfront Winterfest takes the perennial good times of Blue Cross RiverRink to a whole new level, transforming Penn’s Landing into a pop-up holiday village a for 33 days between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve with a Four Corners Management-run bar and restaurant, pop-up garden-style landscaping, a light and video show, and a retail shopping experience.
Read on for a rundown of what’s coming to Penn’s Landing and get ready to practice your triple axel and sip craft brews beside the fire. Count us in.
A wintertime tradition for 20 years, the Blue Cross RiverRink, an Olympic-size rink overlooking the Delaware River, remains the centerpiece of the souped-up waterfront winter village.
To extend the diversions beyond the skating rink, the Delaware River Waterfront tapped David Fierabend of Groundswell Design Group, the same architecture firm that created this past summer’s PHS Pop-Up Garden on Broad Street.
This year, the skating rink location will be transformed into a daily wintertime festival with shipping containers repurposed into retail shops, and food and drink served in a fabricated forest setting with pine trees, fire pits, rustic seating and signage.
Waterfront Winterfest opens on Friday, November 29 — Black Friday — and is currently slated to be open daily, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., through January 5.
Of course, some special hours will be announced in the coming months for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Plus, expect one heck of a bash for New Year’s Eve in conjunction with the 6 p.m. and midnight fireworks presented by SugarHouse Casino.
The good people who operate Morgan’s Pier in the summertime — Four Corners Management — bring the team up the Delaware River shore to operate the Waterfront Winterfest’s temporary restaurant.
The pop-up will feature a 400-person warming tent and American-style beer garden dubbed The Lodge, with chef George Sabatino at the kitchen’s helm to serve a variety of seasonal fare. Plus, look for other partners from the Philadelphia culinary scene to contribute their talents throughout the Waterfront Winterfest.
As for holiday shopping, the crafty folks behind the Art Star Craft Bazaar are curating a winter-themed retail experience with vendors housed inside repurposed shipping containers.
A group of rotating vendors will peddle a range of goods — kids items, clothes, jewelry, posters, pottery and more.
The craft village will be open Fridays to Sundays, with additional holiday hours to come.
Illuminating the scene, Waterfront Winterfest will display an immersive 3-D light show designed and created by Ricardo Rivera of Klip Collective. Bright Lights, Big Santa will re-imagine old timey holiday light shows with Klip’s patented projection-mapping technology, synced music, festive color, lights, hip hop beats and, reportedly, dancing elves.
The light show is set to go off every evening on the hour, from 5 to 11 p.m.
Stay tuned for more on what promises to be a sensational wintertime destination.
When: November 29-January 5, 11 a.m.-1 a.m.
Where: Penn’s Landing, 101 South Columbus Boulevard
Cost: Pay as you go
