dungeons and drafts

Most sports bars aren’t really the kind of place where geeks feel at home, so Melissa Garza came up with the idea for Dungeons and Drafts. It’s a bar just for geeks in Fort Collins, Colorado. Not surprisingly, their kickstarter fully funded in under seven hours.

The bar will look the part with styling like a medieval tavern and the drinks will be themed. You’ll be able to sip Thyme Lord, Grain for Ore, and Study in Pink in addition to over 30 beers, meads, and ciders.

Check out the project video after the break.

Birthdays and cake go together like, well, birthdays and cake. It only made sense for Starbucks to create a birthday cake concoction to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the frappuccino. The Birthday Cake Frappuccino will be available for only five days from March 26th through March 30th.

It’s vanilla bean and hazelnut flavored with raspberry-infused whipped cream. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so plan your afternoon coffee run accordingly.

Dunkin’ Donuts loves you…and bacon. And that’s why they are rewarding our loyalty with their new “Deluxe Bacon Donut”. Shirley Leung, Business Columnist and Associate Editor at The Boston Globe, tweeted delicious proof of the glazed donuts decorated with strips of bacon. It’s currently being consumer tested in participating shops in Providence Mass.

This isn’t the first time Dunkin’ Donuts has tested bacon-lover food in Massachusetts. Remember when we first heard about the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich that later made it nationwide? Looks like DD understands America’s need to bacon everything.

Food Designer Chloé Rutzerveld believes 3D printing will revolutionize the food industry, and she is getting the ball rolling by developing a 3D printed cracker that consists of living organisms such as seeds, spores, and yeast. In three to four days, the seeds and spores sprout into a miniature salad that is said to be completely natural and healthy, demonstrating the potential the technology has to “make the [food] production chain very short,” with less transportation and land requirements.

It is expected that it could taken a decade to get such products to market, but you can get a sneak peek at the process by checking out the video after the jump.
