Goodbye Scratch Kitchen...
Seems like Scratch Kitchen is the latest casualty of the COVID-19 closures.

How about

Now that the jetlag has subsided and I am back to normal, I thought it would be good to have a concise overview of the highlights and lowlights of the trip.

TMNT Pizza Taste Test
Man, this looks pretty nasty, I don't know why anyone would do this (must be avid TMNT fans).
Only in Amer...Japan?!?!
OK, this is pretty gross!I was reading the register and I saw that Burger King in Japan has made a special burger for the launch of Windows 7.According the register, this burger comes with 7 beef patties (I guess 7 for Windows 7).So the big questions that I have for this cross promotion:1.
