After binging hours of Netflix’s House of Cards, we all have the urge to turn to a nearby camera and deadpan an insult — however, eating ribs will do. Tap into your inner Frank Underwood and sink your teeth into Mighty Quinn’s  juicy ribs. Although these ribs aren’t from Freddy’s BBQ Joint, they’ll make us feel just like Mr. Underwood.

Whether we’re calling a friend a “poetic and noble land mermaid” or sinking our teeth into some delicious waffles, we all have a little Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec in us. So why not dine like the boss lady herself at New York’s Wafels and Dinges Cafe. Stick with the classics or go savory with their famous BBQ Pulled Pork Waffle.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to visit the infamous Banana Stand, but we can offer the next best thing. Although Magnolia Bakery lacks the presence of George Michael and his boyish charm, their Banana Pudding makes up for it. And if you’re not in New York, don’t worry, they ship nationwide.

Gather your closest friends and head to Russ and Daughters to dine like Larry David. Pull a Larry and get annoyed with your waiter, your food or your friend.

And don’t fret, season nine is coming soon, so order in some bagels and binge the last eight seasons in preparation.
