Rock Star Munchies
by Mollie Chen
Seeing as how there's nothing I love more than ice cream sundaes and greasy fries at 2 a.m., it's hard to believe that I missed hearing about the best thing to happen to late-night eating since the frialator. Last week, the team behind the Grand Slam unveiled their most brilliant idea yet: a wee-hours menu with dishes created by bands like the Plain White Ts and Boys Like Girls. How are IHOPs and diners across the nation going to compete with the likes of the Eagles of Death Metal's white chocolate chip pancakes with strawberry syrup ("Hearts on a Plate"), or my personal favorite, "Potatochos," a mash-up of kettle chips, sausage, bacon, cheese sauce, AND shredded Cheddar cheese. Marketing ploy? Sure. But who am I to scoff in the face of greasy goodness?
