Last Tuesday evening, hopeful Republican nominee Mitt Romney held a fundraiser at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers. If you had an extra $2,500 to burn, you could have indulged yourself with a cash bar and some chips, salsa and guacamole. We host our Guactacular every year for only $15. Imagine what you can do with that extra $2485.
If you have eaten at one of Dos Toros’ three Manhattan locations, I am sure you don’t need any more reason to obsess over it. Introduced to New York by two San Fran transplants, Dos Toros is sort of like a cheaper, more authentically mexican Chipotle.
Guess how many pounds of nachos it takes to break a record? Well Ninety-Nine figured it out as they used a custom-table and had ingredients donated to make 3,999 pounds of nachos for the new Guinness World Record over the weekend.
The Oatmeal has some ideas for the way commercial airplanes should operate and at least one of his ideas is absolutely genius.
I don’t watch Top Chef. I find the drama to be completely fake and a waste of valuable foodie TV time. (If you want to see the current gold standard of food competition shows, check out “Chopped” on Food Network, and yes I’m excited for “Chopped All Stars” starting this weekend.)

As dumb as I ever thought a column about nachos in the media would be, there is never a shortage of material. Look back at old Simpsons episodes, for example, and you’ll see our favorite snack pop up time and time again. Comedy writers just seem to have a thing for it.
I love dachshunds. I live with a dachshund. He has never gotten up and started singing about guacamole, which is why I am considering trading him in for Bounty’s new pitchman, featured in the following video.
