Blow Hits the Streets of New York
Want some Blow? Last week the bodega across from Belcourt started dealing the stuff! Easy tiger, it’s not what you think— Blow, you see, is the latest in preposterously named energy products. Apparently the Vegas-based company isn’t sweating the fact that Cocaine was banned, because they’re packaging the white powder in “recreational user packs” (pictured here), “bricks,” and “vials,” and selling it on their Website Iloveblow.com complete with credit cards and mirrors (“I Love Blow” thongs and booty shorts, too!). Like anyone would be cheesy enough to go for this? Then again, we do know some folks who are going to love having the perfect fake-out container next time they go to Beatrice.
Drink Creator Doesn’t Have Enough Energy for Bon Jovi’s Lawyers We’d love to crack a Red Bull or two with the marketing geniuses who give energy drinks names like Cocaine (banned after much controversy), Mad Croc (also available in gum form!), Bong Water (no relation to Bong Spirit Vodka, sold in a bonglike bottle), Beaver Buzz, Sum Poosie, Who’s Your Daddy, and the like. (For a full list, hit up Energy Drink Ratings, a blog that has chugged all of these concoctions so you don’t have to.)
Vongerichten Sued by Ex-Waiters; Subway Complies With Calorie LawSix former employees of V Steakhouse file a class-action suit against Jean-Georges Vongerichten for the usual reasons: sub-minimum wage and garnished tips. “We were kind of given the idea that the waitstaff is dispensable, that there were a million people who would come in and do your job.” [NYDN]
Unlike the other fast-food chains, who have adamantly resisted the calorie-posting law, Subway has already started to implement it. [Consumerist]
Healthy zombies should do their best to follow the zombie food pyramid, which calls for six to eleven servings of brains every day, and only sparing amounts of bones and gristle. [Serious Eats]
