Is That a Grill in Your Pocket?

Gone are the days of making jokes about Penn kids creating start ups and inventing shit because they clearly have a propensity for doing so. Plus, this time we’re talking about compact grills (hehe). The Pocket Grill, started by Penn alums “Ben and Jay,” is a grill that can be folded up and kept safe in your pants while you’re preparing to cook the 10 lbs of meat (or assorted grill-ables) that it’s capable of holding.

We know who’s not gonna be smiling for these grills. But for those of you who love a good BBQ, for only $40, the Pocket Grill can be yours if you support them on Kickstarter, the Kiva.org of start-ups.  If you’re really digging the idea, they’ll throw in other goodies if you’d like to spend more to support the efforts of former Quakers.

Hell Yes, Bubble House Is Turning Into A BBQ Joint

Woohoo! Reports have surfaced that the Sansom Street spot formerly occupied by Bubble House will be taken over by Baby Blues, a BBQ restaurant. The menu (from a California branch) looks excellent. The restaurant hopes to open by the end of the year (ha, yeah right).

UTB investigation/salivation forthcoming.

Find This Man, Befriend Him, Eat Free BBQ For A Year

Attention broke-ass fools and barbecue enthusiasts: according to Citypaper’s Meal Ticket blog, Doug Paletta, a Penn PhD candidate, has won free lunch at the incomparably delicious Percy Street BBQ for a whole year. As we see it, you’ve got only one choice: find a course he TAs for, enroll immediately, finagle your way into his recitation, and get as flirtatious and forthright as possible. Your stomach and tastebuds will thank you later (although your burnt out post-Kant brain might not).
