Dude food Tuesday: Spicy pita

Dude food spicy pita |

Once again I welcome all the dudes of this world to our weekly get together; that talking session for those men who suffer from an extreme form of dudaism, those who go through life as the unappreciated dude… Welcome to another episode of Dude Food Tuesday.

This time I want to cover a subject that raises the hairs on many a ‘missus’ at the homefront; the fact that men need a dude night every now and than and that these dudes (imagine sounds of horror movies gathering strength in the background) drink beer!!!

Yes, sorry ladies, men like to drink beer. Mostly because it enhances the dude image in general and has an added advantage too: the more you drink, the tougher and more masculine you become on the ‘dude-o-meter’. Or at least that is what the dude in question is thinking, of course. And recently the missus said to me: “Why are you going out for drinking beer again with your friends? It makes you snore and all. Can’t you try a night of alcohol free beer instead?”
