Grub Street: Remember how 2 Chainz has a new cookbook? Here are some of the best instructions from his work of art, as well as some food porn, and this quote: “2 CHAINZ DOESN’T WRITE DOWN HIS MUSIC, IT FLOWS NATURALLY FROM HIS MIND.” WE GET IT, 2 CHAINZ. COULD YOU PLEASE PASS THE GREEN BEANS?

Eater NOLA: The makers of quirky craft beer MechaHopzilla got slammed with a lawsuit by Toho, the production company that owns the copyright to MechaGodzilla. And to be fair, they have a point. Someone could easily confuse the two — after all, they both smash Japanese businessmen. (High five!)
