Yeah. You read that right. Applebee’s has launched something new… and I know what you were thinking. Because I was thinking it too. “Food, right? Perhaps a new dinner deal? New entrée?” Nope. Wrong. Very wrong. But it is food flavored.

It seems that Applebee’s is trying their hand in the cosmetics game. The restaurant chain has teamed up with Winky Lux to release a line of chicken wing flavored lip glosses called “Saucy Gloss.” There are four lip glosses total in the collection, and the glosses are all based on Applebee’s chicken wing flavors. They are all available for $18 a piece, or you can purchase them as a combo for $65. Not gonna lie, this took me back a bit. These must be some high-end chicken wing lip glosses. I can’t decide how I feel about any of this.

First we have “Get Me Hot Buffalo,” and this gloss is based off of Applebee’s Classic Buffalo wing sauce. Its a shimmery coral shade, and it actually looks like the perfect gloss to top off a look on a ‘saucy’ night. “Sweet Chile Kiss” is a deep red gloss enriched with a shimmer of gold, truly representative of Applebee’s Sweet Asian Chile sauce. “Be My Honey Pepper” is has a golden honey glow inspired by the Applebee’s Honey Pepper wing sauce. But I think my personal favorite, based off both looks and name, is “Honey BBQ-T.” Get it? Q-T? Cutie? I think it’s clever. This vivacious gloss is inspired by Applebee’s Honey BBQ sauce, and it looks like the perfect shade for both a casual work day or a night out on the town. Just enough color, but not too overpowering. I might just have to try it…

Their website proudly states “Swipe these on and everyone will want to taste your face.” That’s a bold statement. But for anyone that loves a chicken wing as much as I do, it might just be a true statement. Super odd release, Applebee’s. But I think I might just have to give the “Honey BBQ-T” a shot.

A Flying Car Has Been Approved For Take Off

Well folks… I think we’ve officially entered the future. There have been many incredible technological advances in the twenty-first century thus far. This one might just take the cake.

Several different companies have been trying to create a flying car for a good while. One of these companies is Samson Sky, and one of those aircraft/car combos is the Switchblade. The Switchblade is a project that has been in the making for 14 years. According to The Hill, The Switchblade “could be just weeks away from getting its wheels off the ground after a Federal Aviation Administration inspection on July 15 determined it’s safe to fly.” The Samson Sky team wasted no time following their greenlight from the FAA. The Switchblade was out on the runway starting high-speed taxi tests the very next day.

From the sound of it, we could all be living our Back to the Future fantasy not to far down the road. Which would be EPIC. People have already started lining up for Switchblades, with 1,670 individuals making their no-cost reservation. However, those that make a reservation will have to make a $2,000 deposit within 45 days of the first public flight. So if you’re one of those 1,670, get ready to cough it up.

I can’t imagine these things being affordable anytime in the near future. I also have so many unanswered questions. Are more airports going to have to be built once aircraft automobiles hit the market? How do you ensure one of these? I’m sure I’ll get my answers in due time, because I think the Switchblade, as well as the many other flying cars in the works, are here to stay. Hello future!

Living Single In Las Vegas Might Not Be For You

If you’re single and living in Las Vegas, it might not be the best city to live in…especially if you’re looking to hook-up with other singles! You would think with the night life, pool parties during the summer and all that there is to do on a weekend, Las Vegas would be a great place to live if you were single!

You also might want to consider if you’re on a budget, there are things to do for everyone depending on your current financial situation. From dining out, concerts, shows up and down the strip to taking in the great outdoors…hiking, spending the day on the lake and so much more!

Not to mention, Las Vegas now has major league sports in the Vegas Golden Knights of the NHL and the Las Vegas Raiders of the NFL. Talks of a Major League Baseball team are in the works and that’s only a matter of time.

Well, if you did research and considered all those elements, you would think Las Vegas would come in at least in the Top 5! Nope!

Actually, Zillow recently did some research on 100 of the biggest cities in America to find which ones were the best to live in if you were single.

It was based on three simple factors: How many other single people there are, how expensive the rent is and how many apartments are available for single people.
Considering just those three factors, it’s no wonder Las Vegas didn’t make the Top 10! If you look at just the Top 5, I guess they have their own “single” appeal, however, given the choice, I’ll take Las Vegas over any of these cities.

Scroll down below to see what cities made the Top 5 on this list and if you have any doubt about our great city of Las Vegas…you might want to start packing the bags!

  • #5 SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

With everything considered, it comes in at #3 on the best cities to live in if your single!

Beyoncé Releases Seventh Studio Album, 'Renaissance': Fans React

The Renaissance has begun. Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, Renaissance, arrived today (July 29) and it is unsurprisingly the top trending topic on Twitter.

The 28-time Grammy winner made Renaissance her first dance project. The 16-track LP which is the first installment of a three act project and led by her record-breaking single “Break My Soul,” has contributions from Jay-Z, Drake, Tems, The-Dream, 070 Shake, Skrillex, and more. Only two of the 16 songs on the project have guest vocalists: reggae artist Beam appears on “Energy,” while Grace Jones and Tems lend their voices to “Move.”

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Beyoncé wrote. “It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving,” she expressed. “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”

The official release of Renaissance comes two days after the album was leaked prematurely. Beyoncé addressed the release in a new statement: “So, the album leaked, and you all actually waited until the proper release time so you call can enjoy it together. I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t think y’all enough for your love and protection. I appreciate you calling out anyone that was trying to sneak it in the club early. Thank you for your unwavering support. Thank you for being patient. We are going to take our time and enjoy the music. I will continue to give my all and do my best to bring you joy. I love you deep.”

Take a look at how fans on Twitter are reacting to Beyoncé’s Renaissance:

    Best Spots For All-You-Can-Eat Korean Barbecue In Las Vegas

    If you haven’t had Korean barbecue, we’re here to change your life.

    What exactly is Korean barbecue you may ask? Let us tell you.

    It’s decadent, filling and packed with delicious side dishes called banchan.

    Korean barbecue is essentially a collective experience, according to SeriousEats.com. It requires teamwork among the table, and the portions are usually large.

    The main event of this feast is, of course, the meat. Many Korean barbecue eateries have menus with different cuts of beef, pork, chicken and grilled vegetables. You can choose from brisket, marinated pork belly, ribeye and so much more!

    The server will usually take your order, flick on your tabletop grill and come back pushing a cart of your selected meat. Depending on the restaurant you eat it (and your skill level of cooking), you will be doing the majority of the cooking! But if you’re a newbie to the world of Kbbq then have no fear. The servers and workers at Korean barbecue establishments are always happy to help and to teach.

    As the meat caramelizes, chars and cooks on the grill, you can use lettuce wraps and rice to eat along the meat. And you simply can’t forget the dipping sauces that include sesame seed oil seasoned with salt and pepper, spicy soybean paste and other savory, umami-like sauces.

    The side dishes, called banchan, are the perfect accompaniment to the hearty meat. Kimchi, pickled cucumbers, marinated soybeans, spinach salad, eggplants are just a few out of the many side dishes that are included in the meal. These side dishes vary depending on which restaurant you choose. However, banchan should always be served with a warm bowl of rice.

    In Las Vegas, there are no shortages of great Korean barbecue spots you can eat at. And another great highlight of the Kbbq scene in Vegas, many places are “all you can eat!”

    All-you-can-eat Korean barbecue places usually have a set price per person. This price allows you to order anything on the menu. However, there are usually time limits at these places and a fee if you leave a good amount of leftovers — so don’t over order!

    Here are some of the best places in Las Vegas for Korean barbecue! Check out the list below.
