Flavorful World’s Friday Fourplay offers up a bite-sized tidbit of info on each of the four food- and drink-related things we found most interesting each week.
Flavor infusion never looked so good. The Porthole is here and it’s your table centerpiece. It’s your dinner conversation starter. It’s your window into comforting culinary realms where your only limitation is how imaginative are your flavor combinations, the looking-glass returning to you reflections of all that your infused teas and oils can be. And it’s available now for pre-order.

Sunset Cajun Cruise + Cocktail in D.C.
For the next nine days through LivingSocial, you can book a private charter sailboat out of D.C.’s Southwest waterfront and enjoy a twilight sail around the harbor. Serving snacks courtesy of D.C.’s Cantina Marina (salsa and chips, mini po’ boy sandwiches, and muffalettas, ahoy!) and offering a “Bring Your Own Beverage” option, the schooner American Spirit will take passengers out for 2 hours, and as part of this $49 package, deposit you back on land with a drink ticket in hand for a free margarita or Corona at Cantina Marina. Go get your sea legs, then eat and drink until they feel like rubber.
Chicago Culinary Insiders Weekend 30th Anniversary celebration
Classes on French Artisan Breads at The French Pastry School. Ten culinary experience tours. Breakfast at Ina’s followed by immersion in delightfully alliterative foodie outings (the cupcake crawl, the dim sum dash). If there’s a better way for a food lover to spend a weekend, be it in Chicago or anywhere else, I have yet to hear of it. Les Dames d’Escoffier Chicago really know how to party, and they’re sharing that knowledge in the best way from September 7th through September 9th: through copious amounts of food and drink. Get in on the good times here.

80’s Horror Film Villains “Ice-Scream” Pops
October is coming, which means Halloween is too. Give Chuckie, Freddy, Jason, and other big screen baddies the licking their victims never could. Russian ad agency STOYN has created miniature busts of the iconic characters and in true horror movie fashion, impaled them on wooden sticks for your refreshment. Flavors include Tomato Hot Pepper, Celery Melon, Mint Blue Curacao (and the relatively innocuous by comparison “Cheesecake” flavor). Get your ‘scream on.
