    You can work up a great big hunger when you're an action hero, especially if you're playing a guy who's half man, half god. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson gets really hungry in his latest movie, "Hercules." Our So-Flo homeboy had to stay pretty jacked for the role. That meant watching his diet, but when it was finally time to let loose, he knew just where to go.

    Singing in public can sometimes be very embarrassing, which is why tequila was invented. Or you could go a bit more private. At our new favorite karaoke place, invite your friends and family, grab a few tequila shots and a mic, and suddenly become a superstar.
