Review: Katz’s Deli. No, Not That One…

Think Kosher delicatessen in New York and the first establishment which may come to mind is the legendary Katz’s Delicatessen — even though its food is reminiscent of authentic Kosher delicatessen and technically not Kosher — with its pastrami sandwiches on rye bread and organized chaos from the second you enter the door to the moment you leave…

…so when I found out that a Katz’s Deli existed in the bustling metropolis of McCaysville in Georgia — literally steps from the Tennessee border — my curiosity was beyond piqued. Was this for real?!?

I…

Welcome to the Great Ketchup Shortage of 2021. Seriously.

Ahhh, yes. Summer arrives in the northern hemisphere in a couple of months, which for many Americans means hamburgers and French fries — and even frankfurters, if you are into that — drowned in a sea of a sweet, thick condiment of tomato goodness that evokes those days of nostalgia…

…but as state and local jurisdictions around the United States have been relaxing the restrictions which have been put into effect in order to combat the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic, an odd new shortage is being reported: that — of all things — ketchup.

“The pandemic has also led to many restaurants…

Coca-Cola Bottles With a Yellow Cap Return in 2021 — But Only For a Limited Time…

It is that time of year again.

You might be wandering through the soft drink aisle in a supermarket or grocery store and noticed that bottles of Coca-Cola suddenly have bright yellow caps on them instead of the more familiar red caps — and you might have asked yourself why those yellow caps are on them.

Bottles of Coca-Cola topped with a yellow cap indicate that…

Tasting the Mint Chocolate Shake From Arby’s — and The Verdict Is…

Sometimes you need something that is sweet or filling — or both — whether you are traveling, at work, or at home. A delicious shake can help to satisfy that craving and hold off your appetite until mealtime — or it could also be a dessert which tops off the meal.

As I have never eaten anything from Arby’s in my entire life prior to trying their crispy fish sandwich — primarily because they are best known for their roast beef sandwiches; and I never particularly cared for roast beef — I never knew that they offered a chocolate mint shake annually prior to Saint Patrick’s Day…

…so as today is Wednesday, March 17, 2021 and therefore Saint Patrick’s Day, I thought I would try the small chocolate mint shake, which…

Pandemic Officially Declared One Year Ago Today

A media briefing which occurred exactly one year ago today on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 included the first time that the World Health Organization officially declared that the 2019 Novel Coronavirus had reached pandemic disease status — interestingly and coincidentally, exactly six months after the 19th anniversary of the attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, which means that now we will be reminded every six months of a substantially historic event which changed the world.

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus — which…

…So I Tried a Fish Sandwich From Arby’s For One Dollar — You Can, Too — and The Verdict Is…

I have never eaten anything from Arby’s in my entire life — primarily because they are best known for their roast beef sandwiches; and I never particularly cared for roast beef. Even the best roast beef in the world would likely be met by me with a lukewarm reception at best…

…so when I found out that Arby’s was giving away a “fish check” for $3.79 — which is…

…So How Long Can You Keep Your Mask Off Aboard an Airplane While Eating or Drinking?

Many of the everyday habits of people around the world have been adversely affected as a result of the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic, which was officially declared by the World Health Organization exactly one year ago this coming Thursday…

…and wearing masks — or cloth covering over the nose and mouth — has become de rigueur virtually everywhere in the world; and to the chagrin of many people who refuse to wear masks for a plethora of reasons which range from political to religious to health to freedom to cultural to fashion to environmental to comfort to being told one year ago yesterday by representatives of virtually every governmental and health organization in the world NOT to wear masks.

One of the places where masks are strictly required to be worn is aboard an airplane — from before boarding for the first time prior to a flight through leaving the airplane for the last time — except for while eating or drinking aboard an airplane.

What is the longest acceptable duration of time a mask may be kept off of the face while eating or drinking aboard an airplane? What…

What is Wrong With This Photograph? Part 84

The current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in countless alterations to what was once considered normal — and one of the changes is the closure of the dining areas of fast food restaurants, which have forced their customers to drive through and place their orders for food via an audio system through which verbal communications are barely comprehensible.

For this edition of this popular game, can you guess what…
