Ziggy played guitar Jamming good with Weird and Gilly, And the Spiders from Mars . . .
Hey Bitches, check out this beer I found at the new Trader Joe’s that just opened two blocks from the Chickpad! Weird & Gilly (named for two members of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust-era band, The Spiders from Mars) is a single cut, double dry hopped IPA whose flavor is described as “soft, doughy and slightly tangy malt, [with] bright citrus, pine resin hops, and tropical fruit.”
I was told that it “tastes pretty good.” A four-pack of 16-ounce cans sells for $14.99! We’ll excuse the fact hat the label font is actually modeled after of the lightning bolt across Bowie’s face from the cover of Aladdin Sane, because nobody seems to get that right.

Seagram’s Escapes is an amazingly delicious line of flavored Malt Beverages (Read: Fruit Flavored Beer) that reminds me of those Bartles & Jaymes Wine Coolers I used to get so wasted on back when I was in College.
Debuting on store shelves just a few days ago, Kettle Brand Chips has re-launched four of their retired flavors for a limited time to celebrate the company’s 30 years of making kettle-cooked potato chips. Christened as the Limited Batch Birthday Collection, the flavors include Red Chili, Jalapeno Jack, Salsa with Mesquite and Cheddar Beer – a bag of which I just polished off last night. If you like spicy foods and flavored chips, this collection of crispy, crunchy snacks is going to be your thing.
