Tagging on to yesterdays post, we think these napkins should be mandatory for all slice joints to provide as mouth wipers. We found these Pizza Love Party Napkins in Walmart of all places. There are good things to be found in places you’d never expect, case in point. The genius behind these paper proclamators is a company called, Creative Converting. They make eating extra fun and take parties to a level your five year old, and maybe your 35 year old, will love. Next time you spin up a delivery pie for your Friday night pre-game party, drop these on the table. We promise they will pay off all night.

Amidst the ridiculous and borderline offensive St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts available, we thought this Jack & Jim St Patrick’s Day T-Shirt had a little respect to it. It’s nostalgic, historical and not overtly inebriation focused. Appropriate? No. Acceptable? Yes.
You know we have a soft spot for pizza at FTHQ. Teagan White’s “Trash Squirrel” Pin reverberated through the office after Missus Tasty found this rodent gem. Teagan has a whole series of critters doing people like things. Most of it illustrated paint on paper. That’s why this is a rare gem and probably sold out by now. There’s something about a squirrel with a slice that just screams NYC to us. Maybe given that a pizza slice is the perfect quick hit and NYers tend to move like squirrels through the streets. Either way it’s a great addition to a lapel as you hustle from meeting to meeting wrestling your fellow citizens and hunger pangs.
Donuts have seem to take over the food world momentarily. Perhaps its the unbridled holiday eating that’s pumped up the nostalgic hole sweet treat. Peter Pan was just named best donut shop in NYC. That’s a nod to the ways of old over the newer artisanal makers. Point is, we can’t get enough of donuts…apparently. Lines outside of Dough. Cream filling fountains at Doughnut Dolly. Even politically correct examples at Federal Donuts. It makes sense that we’d want to wear them on our feet if we could. Now, for better or worse, we can. Sukeno Doughnut Socks will provide you this thrill. Even better when you get dressed each morning it will appear the donut fairy left you a secret fresh batch. Have fun with this. What’s next Munchkin gloves. Just sayin’.
The Renegade-avocado hits keep on coming. This time from LA designer, Hadron Epoch. We love their stationary and we LOVE their notebooks even more. Although we don’t really love the way they articulated their evolution. “Our goal is to create a sense of lifestyle for everyday adventurers who are inspired to look outside of their comfort zone for the best experiences in life.” We’re huge experience people. Adventure is our middle name. Comfort zones are for wimps, we agree. But, we yearned for a little more substance in those words. It did come in their craft so maybe we should just shut up and write in these beautifully bound, paper perfect, journals.
