As @savecolumbuscir and the Bergen Record (review below) can testify, the Smoke Chophouse and Cigar Emporium (grandfathered in after NJ passed the Smoke-Free Air Act) is a breath of fresh air. Just pray you never have to take a shit there...
Ah, the Nineties, when men are men and women smoke cigars, where a neat 21-year old single malt scotch is at home with a rare 42-ounce prime aged porterhouse steak and the Yankee game on the television over the bar is as much a tradition as the tune of “Route 66” emanating from the baby grand in the jazz lounge downstairs.

Enter the 60-seat world of Smoke Chophouse & Cigar Emporium in Englewood. As the name implies, it’s a restaurant that encourages smoking, and while the state-of-the-art ventilation system changed the air six times an hour, guests are still saturated with the lingering odor of cigars.

Girl Scouts #2 best selling cookie and my personal fav. (Link via bakingbites.com)
Samoas, also known as Caramel de-Lites, have always been my favorite girl scout cookie (although I do enjoy Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs and Thin Mints). I’m not sure how they rank in the overall scheme of GS cookie popularity, but I will go so far as to say that I have never met someone who didn’t care for them at all - even people who say that they usually don’t like coconut. I think that the cookie is just a good and rather unique combination of flavors.

Uncle Craig (of Block Island Seafood Company) and Aunt Moisey pose with "Lobzilla" during a recent trip the Vineyard. Shortly after the photo was taken, Craig tells me the 100 year old crustacean was purchased by Gene Simmons' body guard...
Here's a real life creature of the deep...A 24 lb. lobster that's around 100 years old. He was caught off Martha's Vineyard in the Fall of 2007.

There’s something compelling about this photo—some gleaming twinkle of the indomitable human spirit. Something that says: I don’t like to use my voice in conjunction with eye contact—instead I will beshit your counter with my catsup words and mustard underscores of emphasis, good day!

Once you get over the initial reluctance to put a human head in your mouth, you'll find that the subtle contours and watermelon flavor of these Sigmund Freud Head Pops are worth the strange looks you'll get as you suck them. Each sucker is about 2-1/4" tall with a 4" plastic stick. Twenty-four individually wrapped lollipops in each illustrated display box.

This guy ate the world's hottest chile pepper and lived to tell about it?! How hot could it be?
When Paul Bosland exhaled after taking a bite of the world’s hottest chile pepper, it felt like he was breathing fire.

“Got milk?” he thought.

Bhut Jolokia, the world’s hottest chile pepper The next thing Bosland thought, after gulping down a soda, was, “That chile has got to be some kind of record.”

He was right.

In fall of 2006, the Guinness Book of Records confirmed that New Mexico State University Regent’s Professor Paul Bosland had indeed discovered the world’s hottest chile pepper, Bhut Jolokia.

Bhut Jolokia, at 1,001,304 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), is nearly twice as hot as Red Savina, the chile pepper variety it replaces as the world’s hottest. A New Mexico green chile contains about 1,500 SHUs and an average jalapeno measures at about 10,000 SHUs.
