It’s friday, it’s St. Patrick’s Day, I’m in Boston (the most Irish city in the USA), and I’m bored spitless.
I have no damn idea where to go, what’s going on, etc. I’m a total tourist with no clue.
So… here I sit in my hotel room.
I did go to Jacob Wirth’s for dinner. it’s been around since 1878 and I thought it might be a good place for St. Patrick’s day. Apparently I was either wrong or just too early.
I looked at the menu and couldn’t decide what to have for dinner, so I asked the bartender (a cute little thing with a total ‘jersy accent making her a little less attractive with every syllable) what her favorite thing was. She said it was the Sauerbraten.
Ok.. I have no idea WTF that is, but I’m game… I’ll have that.
According to the menu: Sauerbraten Melt-in-Your-Mouth Sweet N’ Sour Braised Beef Round with Spaetzle, Gingersnap Sauce and Red Cabbage.
According to my eyes: A large pile of… um… vomit… on meat…. on something that could be pasta, could be something else.
According to my taste buds: WTF IS THIS!! WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT NASTY ASS THING YOU JUST SHOVED IN YOUR MOUTH, YOU MORON!
Yet I ate it anyway. It was sweet, sour, um….. dill? with some meat on some stuff (nope… it wasn’t pasta), covered with pickled red cabage, smothered with some kind of gravy.
Mmmmm… my ass with thank me tomorrow (say “hello” to Mr. Explodo-Butt!)
While I have no damn idea what I’m doing tonight…. tomorrow is a very different story. I’m going on a brewery tour at the Boston Brewing Company. That should be fun (and I’ll take a few pictures).
Well… it’s only 7:19pm on a Friday night, so I believe I should get my ass back out there and find some sort of entertainment for myself.
