Erev game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals is upon us and here at FFB, we’re all pretty pumped up. There’s a reason we have the names that we have… Our sefira beards may be gone, but our the countup for the cup is far from over…
Now I had this idea come to me just before game 7 of last year’s finals. But by then it was too late to write and post about it. (I was hosting a game 7 party… take that Super Bowl parties).

You know that starving feeling after shachris on Shabbos? It’s especially severe if you are a guest somewhere. I’ve been so hungry during davening so many times that sometimes I think about food during my davening; I fantasize about the kiddush. I also plan on how I am going to beat about the rest of the chazerim at all the different tables. When you’re a kid, you can take a plate and stuff it before or during kiddush.

Either way, I’ve prepared a post which outlines my PERFECT kiddush.

It’s called the The Great Canadian Cholent Cook-Off. As for what the event will be all about, the title is very much self-explanatory: Several people make cholent, which is subsequently eaten by those who attend, and meanwhile some of those eaters will be judging which of the cholents are above the rest.
And as a person who has a strong distaste for PR, I really have to say that this event seems like a pretty cool thing worth publicizing. Read the rest of this entry
