CNN International sports correspondent Patrick Snell samples the classic pimento cheese sandwich at The Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia - for "work purposes," you understand.

Read more on the storm-based pimento cheese shortage earlier this week and the other, bizarrely economical items on the menu at The Masters.

Sweet tea, pimento cheese & BBQ – munching at The Masters

John Kim covers golf for PGA.com

Every year, tens of thousands of golf fans, and millions worldwide, look towards Augusta National Golf Club with visions of Amen Corner, the world’s best players and - pimento cheese?

It’s true. The culinary offerings of The Masters may not rival your five star listings in terms of presentation, seasoning nor taste for that matter, but the fame of the Masters branded sandwiches, sweet tea, lemonade and even their own potato chips make it one of the hottest menu items in town and the price - $1.50 for drinks, $1.50-2.50 for sandwiches, $1 for chips - is always right.

Though pimento cheese and egg salad sandwiches draw the most demand by tradition alone, their barbecue and chicken sandwiches are starting to build quite the following as well. A $10 bill will feed two easily, grab a spot under one of the stately pines near Amen Corner and you’ll have one of the best lunches you could ever hope to have – anywhere in the world.

Office Space: Getting crunk with co-workers

At about 5:30 on a Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, I was running out the door to get home when I ran into several colleagues sitting in a circle and drinking some Scotch. They invited me to celebrate the end of the week with them, and after hesitating a bit, I joined the little group. Yes, I enjoyed the single malt they gave me, but I enjoyed the conversation much more. These are people I see all the time, but nearly all of our interactions are rushed and task-oriented.

We talked about an array of topics - a sick friend, kids, a cool wireless speaker the IT guy had set up and our preferences for different brands of Scotch. Then we went our separate ways. I was struck by how much the brief interaction affected me. I felt closer to my colleagues, more relaxed from the great conversation and the Scotch, and I felt good about working at a place that allows employees to take a prudent drink now and then.
