I was recently interviewed for a podcast (season preview for Pitt football, will be published around July 4th and I’ll post the link when it goes up).  One of the questions was, “Do you guys have a quarterback?”  My answer was, “Well…no”. Now that is not entirely true.  And when you listen the podcast you’ll […]

The first 10 of 20 Democratic presidential candidates take the stage Wednesday night for what could be a civilized debate over the main issues of the day or a messy polemic food fight.[related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”curated” curated_ids=”6143377,6142052″] Speaking of food, you might consider eating one of these delicious delicacies from where each of the debaters call home. (you also might call first and see if these places deliver): Who: Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (Cambridge) Food: A slice of pepperoni from Armando’s Pizza Why: Boston star chef Tony Maws told Boston Magazine that he and his staff love the “classic pepperoni as well as the breaded eggplant, especially when the eggplant was a little extra crispy. It’s nothing fancy, but honest — from the food to the people operating it.” Who: Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (El Paso) Food: Steak tacos from La Malinche Why: The big eaters at SpoonUniversity’s website rank this No. 1 in dishes to try in this Texas town. “While I am not generally a taco fan,” one reviewer wrote, “I have to say I was blown away by this restaurant. La Malinche is a casual Mexican restaurant, known as the ‘Mexican version of Applebees’. The steak tacos here are one of their more popular menu options, and it comes with rice, beans, and garden items. Unlike most restaurants, you are served four nicely sized tacos topped with cilantro and chopped onions.” Who: Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey (Newark) Food: The rodizio from Iberia Peninsula Why: “If you want a Spanish/Portuguese menu featuring an array of surf and turf options, Iberia is your place,” says a blurb on 10best. “Regulars keep coming for the huge servings and the opportunity for a lively dining experience. Known for the rodízio.” Who: Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro (San Antonio) Food: The brisket bun bowl from Vietnamese food-truck-turned restaurant Singhs Why: A score of Yelp users, including “Jess G,” raved about this dish. She said the bowl is made “spicy with extra herbs. In all fairness this was what I ordered on my first visit and have been unable to change the order for fear of let down. This is an all-star order. You will NOT be disappointed.” Who: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii (Honolulu) Food: Poke omelet from Koko Head Cafe Why: This omelet of fried local poke and masago aioli comes with salad and toast for $16. TripAdvisor users call it a delight. Who: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (Olympia) Food: The chicken shawarma topped with fresh and pickled veggies and garlic sauce from the Nineveh Assyrian Food Truck Why: It sounds yummy! Who: Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota (Minneapolis) Food: The Jucy Lucy from Matt’s Bar & Grill Why: Opened way back in 1954, Matt’s claims to be the birthplace of the now-famous “Jucy Lucy,” which the owner created after a local customer asked for two hamburger patties with a slice of cheese in the middle. “Upon biting into this new, molten hot burger,” the website says, “he exclaimed ‘that’s one juicy Lucy,’ and a legend was born. Customer demand grew so quickly, we forgot to add the ‘i’ and the ‘Jucy Lucy’ has now become a local culinary hero. Remember, if it’s spelled correctly, you just might be eating a shameless ripoff!” Who: Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York (NYC) Food: Frozen custard from the Shake Shack just a few blocks away from Gracie Mansion Why: Local food bloggers say Shake Shack is one of the mayor’s go-to dining spots and he’s been known to favor the custard Who: Former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland (Montgomery County) Food: Duck confit from Le Vieux Logis in Bethesda Why: CultureTrip loves the duck leg confit with orange sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes, braised red cabbage and apple. Who: Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio (Akron) Food: The Galley Boy burger from Swenson’s Drive-In Why: Yelp has 180 5-star reviews, with one California fan writing: “Until the end of my days, I will think fondly of Swensons and curse my state for not having anything as remotely good of a cheap and freakishly tasty burger as this place does. … Wrapped in a thick piece of wax paper that is slowly turning clear with grease, two very juicy patties with melted cheese to hold it together, grilled onions, a sweet BBQ sauce and a tangy one to compliment, on a warm bun with an olive skewered through the top of it.  This perfect martini of a ‘burg’ is their premiere fare.” Enjoy the debate — and your dinner!

When you see the phrase “Old Hollywood actors”, who comes to mind? Cary Grant? Jimmy Stewart?  Gregory Peck? Although these men are talented and led interesting lives, it’s also fun to learn about actors that time forgot. Some were handsome, wealthy golden boys; others were statuesque in that they took a lot of shit. You’d […]
