I'm entirely too excited for this Simpsons x Family Guy crossover episode that is going to air this season. I couldn't contain myself and watched the 5 minute preview that they showed at ComicCon, but if you can hold out, more power to you.

Forget having friends with Nike Fuel points to burn, this is the ticket! Nike strategically placed some vending machines throughout New York, stocked with goods such as socks, shirts, and hats, and you can only 'purchase' the goods by using your FuelPoints from the last 24 hours. LA - get up on this! More dope design news here.

The Smithsonian put up a pretty dope pictorial to showcase the surfers that are taking part in California/Surfer Magazine's own Chris Burkard's upcoming documentary, Arctic Swell: Surfing the Ends of the Earth. Check out some of the photos after the jump, and a 8 minute preview of the documentary here.

I had an opportunity to hit up Societe Brewing Company after work last night. It's been about a year and half years since I had last visited, and I can't tell you why it's been so long. From what I remembered - they had some great IPA's and Belgian's on tap, and that hasn't changed (they are now featured under the Out West (IPA) and Old World (Belgians) distinctions).
Something new they had on tap was The Bachelor, a series of single hop ales each using the same malt, yeast, and hopping schedule, but featuring a different single hop (all coming in at 6.5%). This is a great way to really taste the different hop profiles on an even playing field since all factors of the beer remain constant aside from the hop used. I had the Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic versions of the Bachelor, and for me at least, the Mosaic Bachelor took the cake. It's something about those Mosaic hops that get me every time! Next time you are in San Diego, be sure to give Societe a whirl.
