When #FatTuesday coincides with #NationalPizzaDay, you know you’re in for some tasty tweets! Here’s a look at what social media served up this week:
- Beads, please: This week marked the official start of #MardiGras, and while we’re 900 miles (and a good 50 degrees) away from New Orleans, @NBCChicago offered these ideas for celebrating in Chicago.
- Burrito Blitz: When Chipotle briefly closed its locations this week to discuss food safety, it offered disappointed lunchtime consumers a “raincheck” to come back another time for a free burrito. Great news for everyone – except this guy, whose phone number almost exactly matched the rebate code.
- Go Bayside: Relive your favorite “Saved by the Bell” moments at this new Max-themed pop-up diner opening in Chicago’s Wicker Park this summer. According to the establishment’s Facebook page, the restaurant will feature food items like "AC Sliders, Preppy BLT, Macaroni & Screech, Belding Fries, a Lisa Turtle Milkshake and more.”
- VanBnB: If all this food is making you sleepy, the Art Institute is offering the perfect respite for #Impressionism fans – a replica of artist Vincent Van Gough’s bedroom. To coincide with the museum’s new exhibition, the museum has created a replica of one of the most iconic bedrooms in art, and is offering lucky fans to spend the night in it by listing it on AirBnB.
