I recently read an article from USA Today that was too quirky not to share with you. Entitled “Grilled cheese set to parachute into New York City” the article discussed how an Australian restaurant called Jafflechutes has elaborate plans to take their grilled cheeses on an oceanic voyage to the Northern Hemisphere. But these aren’t your ordinary grilled cheese sandwiches. In fact, these sandwiches are uniquely delivered to customers via a PARACHUTE. Crazy right? Anyway, the Melbourne Group has raised sufficient funds to transfer the parachute-launching grilled cheese bonanza straight to New York City. Apparently, to be the lucky recipient of a jaffle (this word is Australian for grilled cheese sandwich), customers must submit their order requests into PayPal, and exactly 24 hours prior to the parachute launching, customers and other supporters will be notified of the grilled cheese sandwich drop on Twitter and Facebook. On the day of the grilled cheese sandwich/parachute launching, the notified customer is directed to stand at a specific location in their town/city (conveniently marked with a white letter ‘X,’ look up to the sky, and do their best to catch their grilled cheese sandwich via parachute (Grisham).
I know this sounds crazy, but it’s totally legitimate (and super creative). I think that I’m going to put catching a grilled-cheese sandwich parachute from the skies of the Big Apple on my bucket list… New York here I come! 🙂
Until Next Week… Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,
