    … more char from the griddle. The novelty of serving cheese between them may be inspired. Or maybe I just don’t eat enough doubles. Cheese: American slice added on for 35 cents. The melt was nicely done, on the verge of drippy. Is that why y’all order doubles all the time? For cheese between the patties? Bun: Giant-sized sesame bun that was needed…

  • Mac and Cheese Night #6: Paragon

    … myself that plain-old boring pint glasses are just that. Plain, old, and boring. And least mason jars provide bevels to keep my fingers entertained. That’s an improvement, right? I’m trying to embrace the mason jar, I am. Enough about the glass. The sangria was made with white wine, apples, ginger, cinnamon, and Sobieski vodka. It’s an easy…

    … and a fat tie on. He looked like a rock star. A little later on at another table a young couple also ordered some of his wine and he raised a glass to them, their waiter let them know who he was and they were definitely interested.
