Trickle over...

Illinois people make fun of Iowa people.
Iowa people make fun of Nebraska people.
I just make fun of people that dress goofy.
It's not trickle down but trickle over syndrome, well except the dress goofy part, that's just mean. I am currently in Des Moines. a few days ago I was in Omaha and we found a great foodery called Upstream Brewery The beer was great and the food was very tasty...hmmm, Nebraska may not be so bad. Here in Des Moines we got a tip on El Bait Shop, an amazing bar with over 100 beers on tap. Now this place also happens to sling BBQ and the sweet smell of smoke lured us right in. After trying a local Iowa IPA (very good) Dan and myself both ordered the Barbacoa Chimi. A chimichanga made with smoked meat. I have declared this the best chimi I have ever eaten. Joe our truck driver is a large man. He ordered the all you can eat tacos not realizing there was a record on the wall. Scott Kauffman 25 tacos. "I can beat that" well sorry Scotty, he did...

Long Live Joe! # 26! (Photo courtesy of Dan's phone)

He has a determined look on his face - determined and full.

I hope you didn't let him drive after that.

Yeah, but he's no Jeff Shive and the buffalo wings at some place in Ohio, right???

Or, am I remembering that wrong?

Doug said...

oh man I forgot about the fire wings
The lace where you had to sign a waiver just to be able to try the hottest wings. What goofs.

Steve said...

Fricker's. And I don't think he made the list. Very close, but a couple shy.

Doug said...

Frickers the chain???

I went to one in Northern Ohio...
man that place was not good.

I thought it was a mom and pop kind of place.

As usual...I am wrong

Steve said...

Yeah, that Frickers. I think this was the original one, south of Dayton. Good place, but haven't been there (to any of them) for years. Don't know how good their franchising is. Obviously not great. Sorry.
