|Get thee to a kitchen! A geek mandate.

Geek birthday parties rock! I’m pretty jazzed about hosting a geek theme birthday party for my friend next month. I started looking around online for some awesome geeky foods beyond the standard Star Wars cookbook and I found a few challenging options.
As much as I’d love some coffee roasted by Stormtroopers, I don’t want to limit the geekiness to one fandom.
Star Trek is also full of awesome when it comes to beverages. People also drink synthehol on The Next Generation, which makes parties with non-drinkers and underage guests feel more inclusive. Now, who can figure out how to make that Samarian sunset?
Another classic is mudder’s milk, a substance featured on Firefly. It’s alcoholic, inexpensive, and nourishing–and it’s really not supposed to taste good. If you’re not sure about tasting it, just remember: it contains Guinness, so it’s gotta be worth a go.

I’ve always liked unicorns, but started finding them exceptionally awesome after Brittany adopted them as a mascot on Glee. After all, unicorns are pretty and special, but sometimes the other horses aren’t interested in them because they’re different. Talk about a geek / gleek mascot!
