Title: The Wild Tales of Nirvana's Tour in Belgium and the World of Champagne

Nirvana's Unforgettable Food Fight in Belgium

During Nirvana's tour in Belgium, the band took part in one of the most chaotic and memorable food fights in rock history.

Frontman Kurt Cobain shared details of the epic food fight with journalist Everett True.

It all began when the band members swapped name-tags for a backstage dinner at a festival.

This seemingly harmless prank left Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan on his own, being spoon-fed baby food because he couldn't chew.

The mischievous members of Nirvana decided to give MacGowan a plate of apples, which he obviously couldn't eat.

The Food Fight Escalates

What started as a simple prank escalated quickly into a full-blown food fight.

Someone threw a carrot stick and a grape, triggering a massive food battle that ultimately destroyed the food tent.

Kurt Cobain mentioned that if televisions had been present in the tent, they would have been wrecked as well.

As the madness continued, Nirvana snuck into Ride's trailer and stole their champagne, peed in their champagne bucket, and swiped all their flowers and candy.

When asked about the outrageous behavior, Kurt Cobain showed no remorse.

He argued that no one indulges in such antics anymore because they're too scared.

Nirvana did it all simply because they were bored and wanted to have "real sincere fun."

Bunny's Buckets & Bubbles: A New Southern-Style Experience

A new restaurant called Bunny's Buckets & Bubbles is coming soon to Fells Point.

The unique concept specializes in fried chicken and champagne, offering classic southern-style cuisine with a modern twist.

The eatery is expected to open on Ann Street, at the location where the Wharf Rat used to be.

A Menu to Delight Food Lovers

Founder and chef Jesse Sandlin, who is also part owner of Sally O's and The Dive, describes the menu as having fried chicken as its backbone.

Patrons can expect a delicious mix of comfort food favorites, all prepared with exceptional attention to detail.

Bunny's Buckets & Bubbles also plans to offer a comfortable, inviting dining experience, with a mix of booths and tables on two levels.

The eye-catching, 20-seat horseshoe bar will allow customers to enjoy the open kitchen design, making it a perfect spot for casual dining.
