I find New Year’s Eve wildly overhyped and a consistent letdown, but that doesn’t stop me from dressing up, popping champagne, and pretending otherwise year in and year out. Whether you’re participating in the chaos or planning to spend December 31 from the couch (respect!), you might need some last-minute provisions-a sparkly dress, perhaps a bottle of Veuve, or enough junk food to feed a small army.

Is Starbucks Open on New Year’s Eve?

If you’re planning to succumb to the societal pressure of staying up until midnight, you might need a boost of caffeine to do it. Luckily, most Starbucks stores will be open on December 31, but hours may vary based on location so it’s not a bad idea to give your local shop a quick call before pulling up for a latte or two.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
