nike tiempo 94 mid metallic gold pack Nike Tiempo 94 Mid Metallic Gold Pack

The World Cup inches closer with each day and the Nike Tiempo ’94 Mid continues to fill the road to Qatar with dope new releases.  Here are two Tiempo 94 Mid NFC pairs, black or ivory leather with metallic gold accents, translucent midsoles and a more opaque gum on the bottom.  We might never see football footwear do a bizarro Kobe and embrace midtop silhouettes on the pitch but it works very well for streetwear purposes and you can see both pairs in greater detail below before copping at shops like Bows & Arrows.

BRONX NEWS: Bronx’s Baron Ambrosia writing small game cookbook




FANCY schnapps flavored with beaver glands? Or how about Touareg-style muskrat from Mali?


Bronx TV host Baron Ambrosia is penning a cookbook on how to catch, prepare and cook road kill, small game and other unusual meats found in the borough and upstate New York.


“When the zombie apocalypse goes down, this’ll help you survive,” said Ambrosia, host of podcast Underbally NYC.


The book has a working title, “Recipes from the Dig,” and will feature recipes like raccoon Wellington, Tuscan bobcat tortellini and old-school dishes like coyote enchipotlado — coyote with chipotle sauce, cactus leaves and potatoes.



“Small game is not an elitist cuisine,” Ambrosia told the News. “It’s the cuisine of your backyard.”


Ambrosia, a host on the Cooking Channel and a well-known fixture on the borough’s food scene, got the idea after fans kept asking for recipes. He also wanted to counter the sense of intimidation some classically trained chefs feel when preparing unusual game like skunks or porcupine.


The book will help preserve traditional ethnic meals that are dying out while putting a new spin on haute cuisine.





“It’s ecological, it’s delicious, and it’s traditional,” he said. “It’s showing you how to capture, clean and prepare these animals, in a modern and delicious way.”


“This isn’t hillbilly food,” he added.


Callita Diego, 51, of Hunts Point, said she’s elated Ambrosia will include a family recipe for her possum hudutu — opossum in a coconut milk broth, served with mashed sweet plantains — native to the Garifuna people of Honduras.





“I learned how to make it with my mother in my country,” Diego said. “I’m happy that Baron will do that. It’s so important for me to let the people know about my culture.”


The Bronx’s culinary ambassador hosted his fourth annual “Big Game Dinner” over the weekend, a private affair where cooks dished up thinly-sliced rare porcupine with lime, mint chillies, cilantro and rice powder, and ice cream made from Georgian white clay.


Ambrosia sources his meat from a group of mountain men who spend months trapping in the Adirondacks. The men hunt the animals for their pelts, but don’t use the meat.





He said he’s in the midst of selecting a publisher for the tome, which he hopes to have out by Christmas.


He said he hopes the book will inspire foodies to move away from meats that have higher carbon footprints and back to meat sources people have consumed for thousands of years.


“The book will be a great way to reconnect people with food and nature,” he said. “It is easy to go to a supermarket or restaurant and pretend a stork delivers your filet.”

Air Jordan III (3) “Ninja Turtles” Customs by Kickstradomis

air-jordan-iii-3-ninja-turtles-customs-kickstradomis

Any throwback Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans around? Kickstradomis is back at it again this week with a new custom shoe project to give those who can remember the animated series a little bit of nostalgia with this TMNT themed AJ3. The Air Jordan III (3) “Ninja Turtles” customs by Kickstradomis are decked out in a bright lime green leather upper, with yellow and red accents throughout. The OGs know that the face on the tongues are of Raphael (hint: the red bandana), which provide for more red accenting on the midsole, eyelets, and lacing. A yellow toe cap and tongue also play a part in accenting these bad boys! Kickstradomis has completely owned the month of March, knocking out custom after custom, including the Air Jordan VII (7) “Aloha” customs he made last week. Check out more pictures of these new Kickstradomis customs below, plus a work in progress picture! Would you cop a pair of these?
