One order fo BBQ hot for us, thanks! Unlike the last time I dragged Daniel B. there, our order didn’t sit on the counter cooling and getting soggy. I must have looked cute or something, because the guy working the line actually came out from behind the counter and searched for me around the bar.
Oh, I also had a tasty beer – I think it was Bombardier? I used my time-honored method of choosing a cool-looking tap. It works more often than you’d thing.
We headed to The Ale House for the next stop on our mini tour of Troy wings.$7.99 for 10. It’s been a while since I’ve been out at night, and the Ale House is a place I’ve been meaning to hang out. It’s pretty much everything I want in a bar. Low lighting but not too dark, $5 beers from the tap, and low/no music so you can actually talk with people next to you without shouting.
The exteriors were very crispy. Nom. There wasn’t much sauce on the wings, and not much buffalo flavor going on. But really, as long as the wings are crispy, that’s all I really care about.
And in yet another probably not-so-healthy lifestyle choice, we also ordered a large basket of fries ($3) with sides of gravy made in-house. Turkey and beef. The beef is AWESOME. The turkey is too, but the beef is so savory and tasty. $0.50 per cup. They were a lot bigger cups the last time I went. Sign of the inflated times. To be fair, prob shouldn’t be guzzling much more gravy than this with deep fried potatoes.
I also was a lush and had two whole pints of woodchuck cider – it was SO good and refreshing. These were some really clean taps.
