Kuma's Tattoo Bingo

So you think you're a fan of Kuma's -- who isn't? Sure, you love the loud metal, the whiskey on tap, and the outrageous burgers. You may even nod approvingly at the tatted-up staff. But only true fans could pick out whose body art is whose, and only the most hard core aficionados could match the chefs to their respective burger philosophies. 

And with that, we throw down a challenge. Match the tattoo to the right Kuma's staff member and you're a legit fan... we'll call you a "medium rare" fan. But correctly match the staff member to the tattoo and what burger topping they would be in an ideal world...well, then you're a pork belly and tortilla chip-topped, Siracha-slathered, mint-garnished, rare and messy mother of a Kuma's burger fan. You require a pile of napkins and a hearty IPA to wash down. You're the kind of fan they might name a burger after -- if you were named after a Def Leppard song.

b) "Pickles, because clearly they preserve themselves!"
c) "A fried oyster-- briny, crunchy, creamy, delicious... and possibly dangerous."
d) "Blood sausage. Salty and mouthwatering."
e) "Bruised kale, because I've been eating kale on everything lately. Plus, I bruise easily."

The State of Food Writing

By Brandy Gonsoulin

In 2009, food blogging, social media and Yelp were gaining popularity, and America's revered gastronomic magazine Gourmet shuttered after 68 years in business. Former Cook's Illustrated editor-in-chief Chris Kimball followed with an editorial, stating that "The shuttering of Gourmet reminds...
