DRINKING GAME: Top Chef Restaurant Wars, Part 2


Restaurant Wars is a two-parter this season on Top Chef, so tensions are higher than ever. But you need to calm down because screaming at Phillip for the entire hour isn’t going to get your landlord to renew your apartment lease, and it’s also not going to affect the outcome of this episode or any other. That was a pep talk to myself, but you’re probably doing something similar. And what better way to relax than with alcohol? We present to you:
