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.
The phrase “Cereal Killer” may be a groan-inducing pun, but it’s also the name of a new cereal café that opened this week in London’s Brick Lane. Serving up small or large bowls of over 60 cereal with about 30 milk options, the establishment will open for business from 7am to 10pm, offering cereals from around the world. At last, a place to satisfy your all-consuming craving for Urkel-O’s without having to justify it to a living soul.

A new pop-up bar is open in Ann Arbor, Michigan. it’s called Brillig Dry Bar, and it’s making ethanol-free waves for being a 100% dry bar. Serving not a drop of alcohol, its menu features a variety of mocktails, as well as coffee beverages courtesy of the coffeehouse that houses it. Attracting patrons in droves on its December 5th event, the teetotalers’ haven pulled in strong numbers among non-drinking demographics such as former drinkers, pregnant women, Muslims, teenagers, and college kids. Brillig will pop up again on 12/26, so if you’re in Michigan the day after Christmas and are seeking a friendly place to converse and make friends, perhaps you’ll stop in. Don’t worry; I won’t tell the Mome Raths.

A promotion that began in the UK has made its way to our shores in the form of remote-controlled, mistletoe-bearing drones that move throughout TGIFriday’s restaurants. When the device comes to hover over suspected romantic couples, they receive a special gift card from the restaurant if they share a customary kiss. And while this seemingly playful practice has been observed to backfire in at least one instance, it sounds harmless overall. Fun, even. Just beware of making sudden moves around the things.

Tom Rosenthal‘s apparent affection for watermelon approaches a degree that few people, including myself, are likely to ever grasp fully. But it doesn’t matter whether we get it. He gets it. So go on; watch his video and just try to force this song out of your head. [Video courtesy of Tom Rosenthal’s YouTube channel]
