About 7,000 Apple iPads are being installed at La Guardia Airport in New York, Toronto Pearson International in Ontario and Minneapolis-St. Paul International in the Twin Cities in a collaboration between airport food and beverage provider OTG Management and Delta Air Lines.

What drink pairs best with an entrée of fake bloody brains? “Brain Belt Cranium” beer. Duh.

The beer was a limited edition replacement for “Grain Belt Premium,” created by August Schell Brewing Company, specifically for a night when the living dead come out to feast on flesh and, more importantly, to drink.

It’s the eighth annual Twin Cities Zombie Pub Crawl. What started as a gathering of 80-100 zombie-philes in 2005 has grown to an event that brings in about 30,000 people.

“My religion is very important to me," Abdullah said after practice. "I mean, it’s the basis of my life.”
