Taco Thursday?

National Taco Day is October 4th


I HATE TACOS… said no Juan ever.
Thursday, October 4th, is National Taco Day in the USA. Thursday seems like a weird day for it. Thursday is more of a day for throwbacks or being thirsty. If you’re like me, every Tuesday is Taco Day… and Margarita Day. Every other day is Vodka and Tonic Day. Perhaps you’re not like me and then you should be prepared for this Thursday with some taco facts, puns, and a delicious recipe in true Newdie Mag style.

Bagels and Breakfast Talk

(Sophia Petrillo Style) Picture it: Krakow, 1610. This is the earliest mention of the round, doughy delicacy known as the bagel. Krakow, Poland community guidelines indicated that bagels were a suitable gift for women who had just given birth. I guess a food that is high in carbs but not fiber or protein is good for new moms?

Behind the Scenes of Cooking with Comedians by Newdie Mag

They're definitely cazy
Michael Salgarolo and JR Bruno pitch their new sitcom “Crazy Broke Half Asians”

How many New York gays does it take to figure out a pepper grind(e)r? You’d be surprised.

Try a whole room-full, camped out on couches, sleeping on sofas in the basement of a Hells Kitchen condo. Read: things I didn’t expect to see when Joshua Shoopman invited me over to watch the filming of his forthcoming comedy cooking show, Cooking with Comedians.

I never want to eat again

As I sit here with food poisoning (I won’t say from where but it rhymes with BackConFolds) I am contemplating never eating again. Seems like a great option even though I love food. I feel awful, but I am sure eyeing those M&M’s in my hotel mini bar. They probably cost about $87 though. Almost worth it.

A “Beary Good” Roast Chicken Recipe

Make sure to roast your chicken bear before eating him
I’ll be your best friend!

This nightmarish chicken bear went viral not too long ago and he really leaves me (and everyone else who has seen him I assume) with more questions than answers.

Who would make such a thing? Dr. Frankenstein? Will he be reanimated? Will he befriend a small girl? Will he learn the monster mash?

Is he cuddly? Will my kids want one for Christmas? Is this the next Furby? Should I preorder? Is salmonella insurance included?

Gumbo: The Taste War

Gumbo is the “official cuisine” of Louisiana and down here people take it seriously. Really seriously. There are heated debates about who has the best gumbo and especially who has the worst. Disney was once forced to take down a recipe for “Tiana’s Healthy Gumbo,” which included kale and quinoa after a heated backlash. It didn’t even have a roux (see below)! We will include a few of the memes it spawned at the end of this article.

A Devilishly Good Cerulean Cocktail


A devislishly good cerulean cocktail

‘This drink’? Oh. Ok. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your neighborhood bar and you order… I don’t know… a Blue Hawaiian, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you drink. But what you don’t know is that that drink is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Morton’s did a Cerulean Margarita. And then I think it was The Palm… Continue reading A Devilishly Good Cerulean Cocktail
