How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: Changing the Menu and Considering Feedback

These are really great. This series and the gentlemen opening the pizza / bicycle restaurant, and the pizza guy who hates Chik Fil A are so interesting.

I'm sure I've been both guests: "You took away the best thing and replaced it with garbage!" or "You got rid of that garbage and replaced it with the best thing!"

It's interesting to see the conflict playing out. Will the wings and mac and cheese be tent poles for other stuff you want to try but might not sell? Will you have "Banana Pudding First Weekend til it sells out!" and "Eat Pone just like you're in a prison this week only!" and so on?

42 Taco Recipes We Love

That comic is what most comment sections actually sound like.

And TheFinn's comment makes me think that tacos would be a great way to do Friday Night Meatballs. Except, you know, tacos. Maybe the host will make all the tortillas, and the guests will bring fillings.

Things to eat while reading a book

I was trying to read a book and eat tacos today and found it really difficult. Maybe someone with experience would have an easier time.

I find things that require only one hand and very little attention to be the easiest for me. Pasta, pizza, french fries, ice cream, or small sandwiches like a simple chicken salad are probably my favorites?

What do you like to eat while reading a book? Ever think you could pay attention to your food and your book at the same time, and be mistaken?
