Snap ART
Snapchat will be launching a new augmented reality platform tomorrow, revealed through a mysterious countdown site.

Not only is October 3rd Mean Girls Day, but the cast of the hit teen comedy have come together this year to raise money for victims of the shooting in Las Vegas today, with the tagline “We know fetch is never going to happen, but we can make this happen”.
Grool!

The Szechuan Sauce Saga Continues
After the time warp that allowed Rick & Morty fans to acquire McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce a few months ago, the famous 1998 sauce will become available again for one day only October 7th. We are already contemplating our time off to get a sample of this legendary condiment.
If only there was a new Mulan movie to come out the same day as the sauce this time.
