WORLD SERIES 2010 - Yesterday Giants infielder Pablo “The Panda” Sandoval chilled out with his family and this "Colossal Brownie Sundae" at Buca di Beppo on Howard Street after the Giants parade. The sundae contains 12 brownies, six scoops of vanilla bean and chocolate gelato, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and a few cans of whipped cream. The Panda also ordered his favorite, shrimp fra diavolo, for dinner. [EaterWire]

THANKSGIVING - This year 4505 Meats will make you a turducken for Thanksgiving if you so desire. For the uninitiated, this is a deboned chicken inside a deboned duck inside a deboned turkey. There is also cornbread and sausage stuffed inside of all of the above and the whole deal will set you back a mere $275, which will serve upwards of 25 Thanksgiving friends. [SFoodie]
