It’s 7pm on a Friday night in New York City.

Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, but let's be honest, who actually wants to relax when there's football to watch? It may be pre-Monday, but it is still technically the weekend and there is much more fun to be had. This is where our new weekly party at Slate comes in. Allow us to introduce you to Sunday F.U.ndays, the only place where you can raise a glass with a room full of dire hard football fans with one hand, and raise a finger to all the things you hate about Mondays with the other.

You read that correctly. Rice burgers. There's also going to be a lot more amazing American, Icelandic and other kinds of amazing street food.
