    Avengers is the ideal superhero movie

    Wednesday, May 13, 2015

    It began with the Hulk roaring and smashing, Captain America smacking soldiers with his shield, Hawk-Eye picking men off while standing in the back of a vehicle that was being whipped through a forest, Thor was throwing his hammer, and Tony Stark was attacking a large base and taking fire.

Food Fight: fries

BEST OVERALL: 5 Guys.  Taste like potato wedges – crispy but soft inside, good thickness, good seasoning and good amount of salt.  However, this amazing experience does come at a certain price…$5 for a large fry, to be exact.

Nick Offerman doesn’t deliver
