Well, here’s another reason why you should start planning a trip to Japan. In honor of Mario’s 30th anniversary, Nintendo joined up with Tower Record Cafes to open three Super Mario-themed cafes in Tokyo’s Shibuya, Omotesando and Ebisu districts.

Kyle McLain is a diehard Nintendo fan, and he recently stopped by those three cafes (which are around for a limited time only) and documented his experience on Twitter.

The Fantastic Four are coming to Denny’s to clobber your intestines with new “Slamtastic 4″ menu items that include the Invisible Woman Slam, Human Torch Skillet, Thing Burger with “Thing Sauce” (whatever that is), and Fantastic Four-Cheese Omelette. If you aren’t done after that feast, then there’s the Doctor Doom Lava Cake which, if I’m honest,looks like the best part of the whole menu.

Red Robin is rolling out a burger and drink combo to promote the upcoming Terminator Genisys movie that hits theaters on July 1st. The burger is a beef patty topped with roasted jalapeno, pepper-jack cheese, shredded romaine, bacon, tomatoes and jalapeno aioli on a jalapeno-cornmeal bun.

The Blue Haze cocktail is Captain Morgan spiced rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, agave nectar, and sweet and sour with a lemon squeeze served in a special tiki glass with a strategically placed cherry to mimic the Terminator’s red eye. Both will be available June 15 through August 23rd.

You can also get a free ticket to see the movie with the purchase of a limited edition $25 gift card. You’ll be back indeed.

Pizza Hut has been serving their hot dog stuffed crust pizza in Canada, the UK, and Australia since 2012. Now they’re bringing it to the U.S. starting on June 18th. It even comes with mustard, because every hot dog needs mustard. How anyone will be able to eat more than a slice or two of this beast is beyond me.

You’ll soon be able to drink Heisenberg-style you’re in London. A pop-up bar called ABQ after Albuquerque, will be offering adult beverages in an RV like the one Walter and Jesse used for their operation in the early days. It’ll cost £30 (about $47), to “cook” up two custom drinks with the bar’s expert mixologists.

Most of them will be blue I’m guessing.

Up to 22 people at a time will be able to customize a drink, but there’s already a long waiting list. There are over 18,000 guests who have already signed up for their chance when the bar is open starting in July through August.

HumanCentipedeBurgerFeature05182015-970x545

The folks at Zombie Burger, a Des Moines, Iowa-based restaurant, are fans of the Human Centipede movies and decided that they would be a great inspiration for food. Naturally.

In honor of the series, the burger joint recently concocted the “Martin’s Revenge” burger–named after the bad guy in the second film, Martin Lomax–and it features a “three-piece slider bun with a different burger in each segment.”

According to dmjuice, Zombie Burger chef Tom McKern notes:

The first burger is steak with cheddar, bacon and red raw onion. The second is a burger patty with American cheese, pulled barbecue bacon and sauteed red onion. The third burger is a loose meat sandwich with house-made cheese whiz and bacon-red onion jam.

“I was trying to figure out a way to do a take on the movie through a burger,” McKern said. “I basically started with whole ingredients, and processed them down from slider to slider.”

The burger goes for $10.79, and frankly, I’m just happy the chef didn’t sew the burgers together…or include human meat.

Because you can never have too much meat on a burger, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are introducing the “Most American Thickburger” on May 20th. This behemoth will feature a beef patty topped with a split hot dog and a layer of Lay’s potato chips.

Forget about the diet because this thing packs 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

You’ll be able to get one for $5.79 on its own or for $8.29 as a combo with fries and a drink, because you know you want fries with that.

Starting this Fall, Indiana Jones fans will have a new place to grab a bite and have a drink at Walt Disney World Resort. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

Jock Lindsay, as you may recall, was Indy’s intrepid pilot. So look for aviation-themed cocktails and food like the “Hovito Mojito”, the “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” and “Rolling Boulder Meatballs”. Aviation decor, vintage travel posters and even a docked steamboat are part of the fun. And look out for nods to Lindsay’s pet snake Reggie.

Based on the concept art, I’d definitely like to swing by some time. Still, it’s not exactly what I would expect for an Indiana Jones-themed restaurant. Seems like they could have gone much bigger with this.
