Should I Spend Donuts On the Swanky Fish?

With the new Premium items just added to our menu, it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy them or to pass on them. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Swanky Fish to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this restaurant to your Springfield.swankyfishflipped_transimage
Building: Swanky Fish
onut Price: 90 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Gluttony +10
Earns: $200 and 22XP every 8hrs

-A returning Limited-Time Item, but don’t be fooled.  Just because it came back once doesn’t mean it will again.
-A new task unlocks for Comic Book Guy, Skinner & Brockman to Eat at the Swanky Fish…so it will be used.
-Not a bad size, can easily fit in  Springfield.
-Characters earn at a premium rate when they’re using it.
-Protected building, so you can’t sell it by mistake.
-Will boost your Gluttony Rating on the Conform-O-Meter

-When it was originally released a little mini quest unlocked with it, this time around there is no mini quest.
-No new characters come with the building and only 3 characters interact with it.

Final Thought:

Personally I’ve had the Swanky Fish in my town since it was first released last April.  It’s one of my favorite restaurants in town because it’s pretty easy to decorate around.  It also earns a decent rate and characters DO interact with it (which is more than I can say about the Museum of Natural History)…plus it’s LIMITED TIME.  So if you’ve been coveting your neighboreenos Swanky Fish now’s your chance to get your very own!

WAWW Valentine’s Day Episode Edition Part 1

Valentine's Panorama

Hello to all my TSTO cupids, singles, swingers and monogamists!  Does that cover every one?  Let’s see… Ralph Wiggum as cupid, CBG the bachelor, Dr. Hibbert the swinger and Homer.  Yup… got ‘em all!

With the holiday event coming to a close on January 14th, a lot of us are just waiting for a return of the Valentine’s Day event and you know that means.  I get the chance to dish on some stuff I’d like to see with it.  Best part for me is reader pkkao actually asked me to do it.  For most of this post, I’ll be abbreviating Valentine’s Day as VD.  Covers two reasons, my laziness and how funny I think it is to use that particular abbreviation in conjunction with a “love” holiday.

WDTCF – Swanky Fish

Woo hoo!  I’m so stoked that EA gave us an episode tie-in.  Lots of cool Japanesey decorations and I couldn’t be more stoked.  If you didn’t know, I lived six years of my life in Okinawa, Japan so anything having to do with their culture make me smile so much.  Thanks EA!

For this WDTCF, I’d like to talk about the Swanky Fish.  I love sushi and probably eat it at least once a month.  When the Swanky Fish first became available for the “What Animated Women Want” promotional on April 8, 2013, I snatched it up right away.  90 donuts might be a bit but my town had to have a sushi restaurant.

I’m so thrilled it’s back!  It’s not very hard to figure out where it comes from as it came with an episode tie-in but I thought it’d be fun to discuss Season 24, Episode 17 and show some pics.  Go ahead and click if you agree. Continue reading
