Pitbull Owns A Restaurant Where You Can Smash Open Chocolate Piñatas

It may come as a surprise to you that Pitbull is the owner of a Miami restaurant. What shouldn’t shock you, however, is that his establishment is as much of a party as any of his concerts are.

The star of the show at Pitbull’s restaurant, ilov305, is a smashing dessert centerpiece. Called the Mr. Worldwide Piñata, it consists of a $58 platter that features a dark and white chocolate orb you have to break open at the table.

Inside of the party ball is an assortment of berries, cookie morsels, mini churros, and sprinkles that spill out onto the tray below. There’s more of the same accoutrements served below the sphere, alongside chocolate, raspberry, and caramel sauces you can dip the sugary shards of your cracked piñata into.

While the glamorous dessert was originally created to celebrate Pitbull’s birthday, it is now a permanent item on the ilov305 menu that you can order at any time.

We Quietly Left A Trump Piñata On The Sidewalk, This Is What Happened

This was by far the most polarizing presidential election of our lifetime. Regardless of what side you were passionately rooting for or against like a crazed sports fan, a new president was announced. Expectedly, half the country was going to be pissed, no matter the outcome.

Last night, everyone was jacked up on Mountain Dew, and we thought you’d like to take a break from hours of CNN and FOX News predictions, and watch people freak out over a random candy-filled pinata, creepily placed in the middle of a sidewalk.

The party store across the street from our office could not sell its Donald Trump-looking pinatas fast enough, and we were able to get our hands on one. We stuffed it with popular Mexican candy, and let the citizens of our country do what they pleased with it yesterday evening.

We attached the adorable Donald to a tree, put a “Candy” sign on him, left a metal tube nearby, and just waited.

If you’re a fan of Napoleon Dynamite, you know how people “do things down in Juarez,” so no harm done, right?

It took a little while, but eventually passersby grabbed the bat and went apeshit on the Trump pinata.

There were a few times we thought the police were going to come by and investigate. Also, we’re next to a federal building and stuff like this usually freaks people out, but whatever. Thug life. People ended up just taking it as good fun. I mean, how can you say no to free Mexican candy inside a pinata?

If you were anti-Trump, this might be a little therapeutic. If you’re pro-Trump, hopefully you’re at least pro-Mexican candy as well.

Check out the Facebook stream below. You can probably skip forward to around the 35:00 minute mark, the 40:00 minute mark where these adorable kids took some shots, the 45:00 minute point where people just grabbed candy and took off, and around the 49:00 minute mark where a grandma finally took him down and let all the candy pour out:

Guess what candy is in this Trump Piñata?

Watch Us Throw a Piñata Stuffed with Bottled Mtn Dew Baja Blast Off the Roof of Our Building

pinata-mtn-dew

Back in March, we announced that Taco Bell’s 10-year monopoly of Mtn Dew’s Baja Blast was ending. The lime-flavored beverage will be available for a limited-time this summer in 20 oz plastic bottles, 24 oz cans and 12-packs of 12 oz cans.

In anticipation of their retail launch on May 5, Taco Bell mailed us a bottle of the blue-green cult soda… stuffed into a piñata. Naturally, our curiosity was piqued. Since it was Friday and happy hour officially started at 11 am at our office, we decided to find out what would happen if we threw a piñata with Mtn Dew Baja Blast innards off our building’s roof.

For the sake of science, of course.

Here’s what happened:
