42" TV's now arriving

This guy does it all. Last night he was cutting fresh Hawaiian fish and today he's hanging 42" HD TV's in the tiki bar. The man is unstoppable.

Quote Bill: "Ramparts installed a bunch of new TV's in their smokey pub room and we didn't want to be outdone. More HD TV's to come."

Happy Birthday Jeannette

Now an official Babe. Happy BIrthday, Mango MIke

Now this is a mans grill.

From the Website:

It's a balmy 58 degrees in Boston today, and spring is just around the corner. Time to talk grills. What better place to start than the Imperial Grill, which is held together by pure testosterone?

Housed within this stainless steel propane-devouring beast are two separate ovens and two cooking surfaces that erupt with up to 60,000 BTUs. The looks are pretty pedestrian (where is Leonidas, screaming with fury on the facade?), but the sound of all those burners charring the food inside will probably make up for that minor quibble. Hope your neighbors like a little side of "wet their pants" with their steak.

The rig costs $1,800, which is also the amount of money you'll need to keep this thing running all the way through spring and summer. Keep an extra propane tank or ten handy.

Thanks Born Rich

Cake of Resignation

Pretty unique way in tending your resignation. Let 'me eat cake.

From the website via Reddit.

Today I gave a two week's notice of my intent to resign. The letter was written in frosting on a full sheet size cake. The cake was delicious and it was well received.

"Dear Mr. Bowers,

During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.

However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

Please accept this cake as not notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27.


W. Neil berrett"

New Weekend Format

Those of you that have been to Mango Mike's Alexandria on a weekend recently may have noticed a few changes other than the Smoke Free Atmos- phere. After 5 years of hosting DJ's on the weekends we felt it was time for a change, time to get back to our roots. We want to be known as a fun bar, a high energy place that reminds you of being on vacation in Key West (or Dewey Beach). We felt our current format was becoming too "clubby" and we didn't like the direction we were headed. Our friends at last Call Entertain- ment helped us bring in some local bands for the new format. We now bring Live Music Every Friday and Saturday Night. Fridays are usually more low key with Acoustic Groups covering all your favorite party/ bar songs. Saturdays we kick it up a notch and bring in full party bands a little bit louder but still just as fun. If you have not been by Mango Mike's late night in a while it is time to check it out. To see our current calender of Music click here

Brian Moran's Pancake Breakfast

Brian Moran, our favorite candidate for Governor, had his annual pancake breakfast at Mango Mike's. Over 300 Democrats and one known Republican (Frank Fannon) posted for the breakfast feast.

The staff did a great job, Brian gave a short speech and the clown didn't scare too many kids. It was a perfect morning in Mango Land.

Brian Moran is the right candidate for Virginia.

This Weeks Brunch Deal

Plus the Trinidad Steel Drum Tunes of Michael George.

Brunch only $14.95 - 10am to 2pm every Sunday.

"Female Body Plate"

I think I'll pass this idea on to Hana Toyko over in Foxchase.

From the Website:

Cannabalistic Sushi – Tokyo, Japan

‘Nyotaimori’ in Japanese literally means ‘female body plate’, and this restaurant named after the tradition of eating sushi and sashimi off a nude woman’s body takes the concept to a whole new level. An edible body, with dough ‘skin’ and sauce ‘blood’ is wheeled into the room on a hospital gurney and placed upon a table. The hostess begins the meal by cutting into the body with a scalpel and then patrons dig in, operating on the body to reveal edible ‘organs’.

Hey Mango-Heads! Mango's in Bethany Beach will be re-opening its doors for Summer 2009 starting Friday March 27, 2009!

Absolutely the Worst Restaurant Idea Ever

What the hell was somebody thinking.

Can you imagine going to a bank for financing for this deal.

From the website:

Hitler’s Cross’, in Mumbai, India, understandably provoked a lot of anger from the community when it debuted in August of 2006. On display was a giant poster of Hitler, and the ‘o’ in ‘cross’ on the restaurant’s large illuminated sign contained a swastika. Just one week later, the restaurant was forced to change its name to the ambiguous ‘The Cross’ and remove all Hitler and nazi memorabilia.

The Dangers of NOT Drinking

THOSE who seek salvation in a bottle may have found their muse. Dr. Malcolm Lloyd, a Johns Hopkins and Dartmouth-trained physician and former pharmaceutical clinical researcher, will appear on "Good Morning America" this week to espouse the health benefits of daily drinking. "A lot of research shows that people who drink moderately flat-out live longer than those who don't," Lloyd tells Page Six. "From the pre vention of the common cold to the pre- vention of the onset of Alzheimer's to preventing certain types of cancer, regular drinking can be very beneficial." Whereas most research has focused on wine, he says spirits can provide the same boon. Lloyd notes that "moderation" means one to two drinks a day for women and one to three drinks a day for men, and, "the positive effects start going in the other direction" once those numbers are exceeded.

This Just Isn't Right

Modern Toilet - Taipei, Taiwan

From the website:

Perhaps the best-known strangely themed restaurant is Modern Toilet in Taipei, Taiwan, where hungry customers take a seat on Western-style commodes and enjoy feces-shaped chocolate soft serve in miniature toilet bowls. Toilet rolls are hung over the tables for use as napkins, and drinks come in miniature urinals. The toilet theme continues throughout the restaurant, with ‘WC’ signs hung as décor.

...and no Mango Mike's will not serve you in the restroom.

Win a Free Dinner

Saturday Alexandria Council Woman Del Pepper had a fantastic party at Mango Mike's following the record attended St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Entertainment by the Irish Breakfast Band and Irish Dancers.

We wanted to serve Jerk corned beef and cabbage, but Council Woman Pepper wouldn't budge, so we went traditional.

Completely Pitch Black Restaurant

Makes your date look even better.

Located in Beijing, China.

It’s often said that if you take away one or more of your senses, the remaining ones get stronger. That’s the idea behind Pitch Black, a Beijing restaurant where patrons eat in complete darkness. Illuminating devices like cell phones and watches are strictly forbidden, and it’s so dark you can’t see your hand in front of your face. Don’t think you can get away with any funny business, however – the waiters wear night-vision goggles.
