Earlier this week, Taylor took me and the rest of the guys out for a nice couple days of camping up on Big Bear Lake. Here’s one of our self made food endeavors, a thick juicy steak, cooked over a camp fire and spread with a nice spinach parmesan dip. Of course, Marc’s meat would look like this. Eat on family. Eat on.
This post was going to be a commentary about the past work week, what’s to come in terms of the new website, some of our new editors, but I think I’m going to go the David Chase route and end this post like he ended The Sopranos-
The few days leading up to Memorial Day weekend and the weekend itself have been rambunctious to say the least. Filled with gun scares, debauchery, eating, Sopranos and NBA Playoffs. By the way, if you frequent our site (thank you!) and you have yet to start following us on @twitter, try it out! The new website is coming soon, and when it comes time to implement it, we may experience some down time…and the best way for us to communicate is through Twitter. Anyways, for your enjoyment, here are some stories through the eye of my phone again:
Introductions, introductions! In hopes of not dating ourselves, we here at Foodbeast are trying to introduce some new media…and in this case, it’s VIDEO ADVENTURES to accent our normal Picture Adventures! Elie recently picked up a new HD camera the size of his phone and took to the downtown streets of Fullerton to check out Stadium Tavern with his partner in crime Koorstad. The video is a hodgepodge of the fellas doing some shopping, getting their eat on, and checking out some Fullerton backside (I said it!). Expect more videos to come, and I’ll make sure the production values are on a steady increase. Until next time folks, this is Marc the Lumberjack, eat on!

In our second installment of Recession Session, we’ve combined it with an Adventure as we re-visit the now staple “5 Dollar Footlongs” at Subway. To preface this endeavor, every couple of weeks me and Marc make an effort to check in with our friend Rudy at his work place (a local Orange County recording studio) to make sure the work-level is high, the drug-usage is at a reasonable minimum and their eating is proper. Of course we decided to eat fresh, and Rudy decided he would be the savior and document the adventure on his iPhone, so don’t mind the haphazard photography…just enjoy the eats!
After completely thieving Marc and Taylor of their $10.00 allowance during our weekly card game, we made our way for some late night eats at “El Gallo Giro”. As long as I’ve known my friend Taylor, he’s raved about this place, so, in hopes of ceasing his endless rants about the amazingness that is this eatery, we took our appetite to this hot spot. Read on for the journey:
Here at Food Beast, we have some obscure work habits. The beauty of working with food, you have to do very little work in the actual office. So, during the odd hours during the week, it’s often beautiful and sunny out in Orange County. So when I met up with Marc in Fountain Valley to discuss how to promote the site and talk about future endeavors, we caught a glimpse of his two beach cruisers sitting in the garage…then noticed the blistering sun outside…one thing led to another, and we decided we would have our think tank at the beach today. Onward ho!
Hollywood. Family owned since 1939. Started as a stand. It is now 2008, and Pink’s is easily one of the most notable eateries in Los Angeles. So a couple week backs when some of us went out to the critics’ screening of Pineapple Express, we figured it would only be proper to wait an hour in line and enjoy some of the famous goodness.
