Unbeatable Food Combinations (aka, UFC)

burger and shake

Cheeseburgers and shakes. Vanilla preferred. Chocolate also works. Strawberry is not my fave. Oreo shakes are too sugary. Other flavors are too complicated. Bacon burgers are great. Spicy-honey-mustard bacon burgers from Dotty’s Dumpling Dowry in Madison, WI are particularly great. Note that Fuddrucker’s Shakes are particularly bad.

Waffles and bacon. Real 100% Maple Syrup preferred due to its killer sugar density. Scrambled eggs can be substituted bacon (or complement…). Sausage is also a substitute good, but not a complementary good. Unfortunately I eat sausage too fast, hence my marginal preference for bacon. I have not found a good generic brand of bacon–Hormel is quite consistent. “Belgian” style waffles are preferred due to excellent deep-pit-maximal syrup absorption. Pancakes just don’t do it for me unless the cake exterior is cooked as a syrup-sponge vs. a syrup-repellent.

I’ll continue Unbeatable Food Combinations as the summer progresses.

Haven’t updated in awhile… Here are some events I’m hittin’ up in the next two months

After an extended weekend in Madison and Chicago, I’m back to the ATL. The weather is warm, so that rocks, and so do these events I’m checking out in the next couple of months–

Girl Talk in Athens, GA at the Georgia Theatre

Radiohead in Atlanta at Lakewood Amphitheatre

Avenue Q on Thursday (March 27) at the Fox Theatre here in Midtown, Atlanta.

All should be awesome. I’ll update with more events as the summer progresses.
