Nerd Lunch Podcast

This week we are joined by perennial foodie favorites Nick from Dude Foods and Jess from Burger Mary and we let the food experts take a ride on one of our favorite topics, Movie Menus. This is Part 3 of the Movie Menus.

We are all assigned movies and restaurants by someone else and we have to come up with a themed menu to go with that movie using the existing menu of our restaurant.

Lots of fun movie menu choices including movies like The Goonies and Karate Kid Part II as well as restaurants like McDonalds and Outback Steakhouse.  So download this episode, sit back and let us take you on a trip for both your ear holes AND your mouth holes.  Trust me, you’re mouth will be watering by the end.

Nerd Lunch vs The Nosh Show

Nerd Lunch Podcast

This week we have a double header of shows coming right at your ear holes.  And we’ll be talking about stuff that you put in your mouth holes.

First up, on Nerd Lunch Episode 137, we were visited by all four hosts of the awesome Nosh Show Podcast. Yep, the fourth chair this week is occupied by foodie luminaries Marvo, Ryan, Eric and former Nerd Lunch guest, Dubba.  A veritable hall of fame of food bloggers.

The Nosh Show

This week the seven of us have a fast food fantasy draft where we pick a menu of five items (beef, chicken, side, drink, wildcard) from the menus of the top 20 fast/quick serve restaurants in the US.  It was a lot of fun and after you’ve heard the show head on over to Poll Daddy to vote on who selected the best menu.

And yes, I mentioned this week was a double header, so if you want to hear more of the seven of us talking, check out Episode 32 of The Nosh Show and you can hear CT, Jeeg and I talk about stuff like Sbarro frozen pizzas, cronuts, Sriracha pizza and movie tie in food promotions with the Nosh Show hosts over on their show.  It’s a marathon of awesomeness.

Roadtrip

This past weekend the members of the Nerd Lunch Podcast and the Cult Film Club podcast descended on Atlanta for a meetup.  This was the first time several of us had seen each other in real life.  Here are some photos commemorating this historic nerdy and cultish event.

The first place we all went together was, of course, The World of Coke.

Nerd Lunch Podcast

Episode 113 of the podcast has dropped. This week we are joined again by food blogger extraordinaire Jasmin Fine from 1 Fine Cooke.com. And this week, with the return of the Denny’s The Hobbit menu, we are also returning to a topic inspired by that menu, Movie Menus. Which we did back in episode 83.

We all assign other people the restaurants and movies and then we create the menus and themes found within. Expect to see the movies Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Princess Bride as well as the restaurants PF Chang’s and In-n-Out Burger. Lots of awesome stuff lies within.

Nerd Lunch Episode 96: The Replicators are still broken

Posted in fast food, food, podcast with tags , on July 30, 2013 by Paxton

Nerd Lunch Podcast

Continuing or climb towards triple digits, welcome to episode 96, which is a direct sequel to Nerd Lunch Episode 9. Unfortunately Jay couldn’t return for this installment so we brought on a brand new guest, Dubba from the blog On Second Scoop and the podcast The Nosh Show.

replicators

In this episode we are still in our broken spaceship from episode 9 in uncharted space. Jeeg was able to use some cheap alien labor to fix our replicators a bit more and allow us the addition of 5 condiments for use on the meals we chose from last time.  Unfortunately this time around, it’s going to be a bit harder to come to a consensus as some of us aren’t really condiment lovers (don’t look at me).  It’s a fun and interesting discussion.

Nerd Lunch Episode 83: Creating movie themed restaurant menus

Posted in fast food, movies, podcast, pop culture with tags , , , , on April 30, 2013 by Paxton

Nerd Lunch Podcast

For this, our 83rd episode, we are joined again by Steve from the Food Junk blog to discuss movies and fast food menus.

hobbit_menu3

Yes, with the release earlier this year of Denny’s Hobbit Menu, we were inspired to take matters into our own hands and imagine what would happen if other restaurants took the same marketing approach and created specialized menus for movies. Imagine Red Lobster creating a menu for a serial killer. What would a Buckaroo Banzai menu look like at a place known mostly for desserts? And would you eat at Olive Garden regardless of the movie it created a menu for?

All these things and more are answered in this week’s Nerd Lunch Podcast.

Btw, I just realized that this is my 700th post.

Nerd Lunch Episode 51: Does it live up to the hype? Part 2

Nerd Lunch Podcast

AND WE ARE BAAAAAAACK!!! After a few weeks off the Nerd Lunch crew is back kicking holes into your eardrums. This week we are doing a sequel to Episode 7: Does it live up to the hype?

Breaking Bad

In this episode we are joined by Brian from Cool and Collected and show runner for The League of Extraordinary Bloggers.  We each pick something that we haven’t seen or done that has been hyped to us by friends, family and pop culture in general and we watch it.  Or do it.  Or eat at it.  My choice was the TV show Breaking Bad.  Brian picked Star Trek, CT picked Quentin Tarantino movies and Jeeg picked Chik-Fil-A.  Listen up to the discussion to find out if we thought our picks “lived up to the hype”.  Spoiler alert, there are more “NO”s than you would expect.
