An Ode To Mellow Mushroom

An Ode To Mellow Mushroom

Happiness is pizza.

True pizza lovers know where to get the perfect pizza pie.

If they told you there was a better pizza joint than here, it would most definitely be a lie.

From the atmosphere to the service to the exotic pizza recipes,

Mellow Mushroom is the place to go, and make sure you arrive hungry.

When you walk through the front doors of the restaurant, you are greeted with crazy wall art.

The ambience has almost a “hippie” vibe; the use of tie-dye is off the charts!

The light fixtures are wavy and add to the groovy feel.

These along with other free spirit decorations magnify the customers’ zeal.

You sit down, order your drink, crack open the large menu

and are overwhelmed with the number of options, you're not sure what to do!

You decide to start with an appetizer, but which one will you choose?

How about settle on the pretzels, what have you got to lose?

The pretzels are cooked to perfection and can be served in three different styles.

Whether you choose garlic butter and parmesan, butter and kosher salt, or cinnamon sugar and honey, you will be eating those pretzels with a smile.

The dipping sauces include mustard or red sauce, either one is a good selection.

While eating your pretzels, you might as well glance over the entrée section.

Yes, Mellow Mushroom offers salads, hoagies, and calzones,

But you’re at a joint known for their mouthwatering pizzas, you can even confirm this truth by checking Yelp on your phone.

With pizza names such as “Thai Dye” and “Kosmic Karma,” you wonder if you should stick with the hippie theme,

But if you’re a potato lover like me, the “Red Skin Potato Pie” is the ultimate pizza dream.

The delicious pie has an olive oil and garlic base and is coated with toppings that will please:

Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, cheddar, and mozzarella cheese.

The pizza is then garnished with chives and drizzled with spicy ranch dressing and sour cream.

Your first bite will have you running to hug the entire Mellow Mushroom team.

And then there’s the crust, many customers’ favorite part of the pie.

You will not want to leave the restaurant without giving the crust a try.

The doughy crust is brushed with garlic butter and covered with cornmeal and parmesan right before serving.

It may not be the healthiest of crusts, but I’m sure you are deserving.

Oh, Mellow Mushroom, don’t ever change.

The slightest alteration in your perfection would just be too strange.

If you hold onto your groovy vibes, you will always attract many guests.

Well, thank you, Mellow Mushroom, for being the best.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air

Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors

Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB

Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead

Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes

And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
