New seasonal beers are on their way as well. * Even though Halloween’s over, the scares keep coming. Andrew Cuomo was elected governor of New York last week, making his eerie, can-opening, broom-riding girlfriend Sandra Lee of Food Network fame New York’s First Lady.

Mickey D’s isn’t offering much in the way of history when it comes to the sandwich’s creation, but they’re asking McRib-lovers to offer theirs. The winning author of the Legend of the McRib story will get $10,000 and a trip to Germany, where they can’t get enough of the sandwich. All you have to do is submit a video before Monday, Nov. 22. Entries will be posted online and the most popular will win. For more info on the contest and the logistics of entries, go to mcdonalds.com.
