What Could Have Made Cinco de Mayo Better?

Nacho_trayIt’s been 10 days since Cindo de Mayo and I can’t help but reflect on that days events.  The day was filled with laughter, beer, friends, and of course, nachos.  But what could I have done better?  What could have enhanced my overall Cinco de Mayo experience?

The answer rests in the Heated Nacho Tray.  Gizmodo.com tempted me to with this powered nacho accessory, yet I still didn’t buy one. 

I must have had a momentary lapse of intelligence.  What could be better than having beer after beer, all the while knowing the my nacho cheese would be kept at a perfectly delicious temperature?

So check it out, the Heated Nacho Tray is a winner in my book and is a must-have accessory for every nacho lover.

Who in the Hell Are These “Nacho Cheese” Guys?

AboutusWe introduced the nacho loving community to the inventor of the Microwaveable Nacho Box, we interviewed the creator of “Nacho Blasters,” and we’re preparing to have a one-on-one with the man behind the song It’s Nacho Love (That I Need).

But who are we?

Some may have learned a bit about us from the Mercury News article, some may have heard our interview on KGO Radio, others may have even met us at the Alice @ 97.3 Cinco de Mayo Broadcast. Now you can learn a little more about the three guys who created ILoveNachoCheese.com. You can even sign up for our Twitters where we write about more than just nacho cheese. What a concept!

So hop on over to our new About Us page and learn more… about… us… or something.

Nachos no Good in Nashville

InspectorSports fans in Nashville may want to think twice before purchasing nachos at the Nashville Arena concession stand. After four years of health inspections, unsafe food and a rodent problems were revealed that the Health Department called “critical violations.” In addition to 22 cases of mouse droppings in concession stands, since 2003, inspectors found out that 15 pounds of nacho cheese had to be thrown out because they were stored at the wrong temperature.

“Lack of good time-temperature controls is the leading cause of food-borne illnesses in this country,” said Jerry Rowland of the Metro Health Department.

There were also 21 cases of mold found growing inside ice machines and four sightings of fruit flies. Twice in four years, the Health Department suspended permits for two vendors and told them to cease operations immediately. Arena General Manager Hugh Lombardi said the violations shouldn’t keep fans from eating there.

“I don’t think that’s alarming,” he said.

We say, “Really, Hugh? … really?”

In Hugh’s defense, the Health Department returned to the arena on March 29 to reinspect nine vendors and some of those vendors had prior violations of rodents. Health inspectors said they found no signs of mice in those nine reinspections.

We Heart Taco Licking

TacosSarah and No Name from Alice @ 97.3 generously invited us to their Cinco de Mayo (Thizzo de Mayo) broadcast to judge their “Battle of the Bay Taco Licking Contest.” And although nacho cheese wasn’t involved, we graciously accepted the challenge.

The contest consisted of two teams of three: The North Bay vs. The East Bay. It was a hardfought battle, but after all the tongues were tired and all the tacos were licked, the North Bay team was crowned the victors.

Overall, the entire event was great to be part of. Hooman was sporting an ILoveNachoCheese.com shirt, we got to hang out with the morning crew again, and we were able to meet some interesting loyal listeners. Even recently engaged Andrew “The Bachelor” Firestone showed up to drink and be merry!

Phone Hack Using Nacho Cheese

Story suggestion by: Greg L. Email us a story.

CellhackA reader recently sent in a link to a video that demonstrates nacho cheese being used to hack a cell phone. The video offers step-by-step instructions on how to modify any cell phone to receive police transmissions.

We haven’t tested the procedure ourselves in our Nacho Cheese Test Lab, but we have a sneaking suspision that it would probably fail. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Justin.tv Loves Nachos

JustintvYesterday, thanks to Hooman of Hooman TV fame, we were invited back to the 97.3FM Studio in San Francisco to host another nacho party for the Sarah and No Name Morning Show. While we didn’t get much air time during the visit, it was nice to see the crew again, hang out, eat nachos, and drink beers…at 9 in the morning.

A nice bonus this time, was we were able to meet Justin.tv. Justin lives in San Francisco and has recently started documenting his life by wearing a camera on his head 24/7. Even in the bathroom. Even on a date. But that’s not why we like him or find him interesting. We like Justin because he loves nachos!

Click here if you’re interested in seeing some pictures from the nacho extravaganza?

Fight Over Nachos: Reloaded

GirlsumoWe recently wrote a post about a fight that broke out between two girls at Revere High School over nachos. While police never elaborated on the circumstances, only to disclose that they were both arrested for assault and battery, there have been a few stories written about the scuffle.

One in particular, written by Susie of “Everyone loves a Boston girl,” was particularly interesting since it was from the female perspective. Susie’s post titled, “I too would fight for nachos,” suggests:

“We should create a list of rules from now on? Everyone must agree on the toppings on nachos before entering the restaurant. Always order the larger size. Only take one spoonful of salsa, one spoonful of guacamole, and one spoonful of sour cream. Don’t eat all of the nachos that are smothered and cheese and leave the bare ones.”

Brilliant, Susie. We couldn’t agree with you more. If you think about it, your instruction should really be nacho common sense… but then again, so should mindful one-for-one car merging during traffic. But it only takes one halfwit to stir up roadrage, or in this case, a nacho brawl.
