It might be a little hard to believe, but Pac-Man is getting his own restaurant. We don’t know much about the restaurant, which is going to be called Level 257, other than the following description: “Introducing a unique dining, entertainment & social experience inspired by PAC-MAN.
The restaurant is slated to open next year, and it will be located in the suburb of Schaumburg, just outside of Chicago. It will feature 40,000 square feet of space with a 300-seat suite, as well as cocktail lounges and a 16-lane bowling alley. Hopefully, they will have some old-school Pac-Man arcade games for diners to play too.
Ready or not, here they come. Ramen filled donuts are a thing in Japan. We’ve already got ramen burgers, so donuts are the next logical step. Japanese restaurant chain Osaka Ohsho is making the special donuts for a limited time only.
They might sound odd, but if you think savory rather than sweet they start to look pretty good. The ramen donuts even won a competition which featured 100 entries by employees of Osaka Ohsho. You can try them for about $2 each through September 30th.

Next time you have your friends over for a party, break out these nerdy bowls. You have your choice between a zombie head or a D20. The die actually splits into two pieces with the top holding 14 ounces and the bottom holding 12 ounces. The zombie head holds 32 ounces. Both are microwave and dishwasher safe.

It’s a given that working a job in fast food can be difficult, but one Chipotle location pushed their workers too far so the whole staff quit at once. The location in State College, Pennsylvania was forced to close with the workers posting this sign on the door as an explanation.
It has since reopened, with Chipotle claiming it was only a few workers who quit with the majority “enthusiastic to return to work”. Let’s hope conditions have improved for whoever is making those burritos.
Kitchen spills and messes are inevitable. You can keep on top of them with the help of the Doctor and the TARDIS though thanks to these tea towels. They focus on one of the Tenth Doctor’s most famous quotes about timey wimey stuff from the episode “Blink,” and if you can’t bring yourself to clean up your kitchen counters with them, you can hang them on hooks or towel bars as decorations.
The towels are available for pre-order right now, and they’re scheduled to ship later this month.
Leave it to a German to know how to handle a precarious stack of beer mugs. German waiter Oliver Struempfel carried 27 one-liter mugs over an astounding 40-meters of beer-drenched barroom flooring to claim the world record for beer carrying. Yes, that’s apparently a thing. Well, congratulations, Oliver. Prost!

Whenever I see ice cream vendors with cartoon and geek themed popsicles, I’m always tempted to fork over money. It’s like some kind of instinct. I should know better though because the contents of the package rarely offer what’s advertised; instead, the eyes are wonky, the colors are melted together, etc. It might be traumatic for children.
Dorkly’s rounded up some cartoon popsicles that didn’t get it quite right, and the list features characters like Tweety Bird, Pikachu, Batman, and more. The pictures are fabulous and a little scary.

We’ve already seen a burger with black buns, and that was weird enough. But this time Burger King went even further with black cheese.
According to NariNari, the Kuro (Black) burgers will be available in two varieties they’re calling Kuro Pearl and Kuro Diamond. They have buns and cheese made with bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink and beef patties made with black pepper.
You can get these limited edition burgers beginning later this month. Black cheese though? Yuck.
