Mike’s ‘Merica

6 Jul

When several people send you the same link with the words ‘For Mike’ as the subject line, you’ve got to wonder.  So it was with little shock that the link was to an article about one of the most monumental inventions since Burger King’s Bacon Sundae: the all-new ‘Merica Burger!

Mike’s first course followed up by a coronary bypass.

What is Slater’s 50/50 ‘Merica Burger?  Well, it’s 100% ground bacon, plus thick-cut bacon, bacon island dressing, bacon cheddar cheese, and a fried egg for safe measure.  

Happy Birthday, Mike Rey… and AMERICA.


Happy Birthday, Mike Rey!

Hi-Larry-ous Insults

“Hey, schmuck-face, you can’t just say you’re giving up red meat, there has to be some motivation behind it.”

Happy Birthday, Larry David!

Take Me to the River

2 Jul

The St. Lawrence River that is.  Mike Rey’s “I’m on vacation” meat-out continued as he trekked to the North Country, NY for the second wedding of the season.  And he was not shy about hiding his happiness.

Wetting his appetite with UBU.

 Mike enjoyed an everything bagel with cream cheese before consuming a nice little plate of cheese and crackers.  The wedding buffet was nothing short of glorious: prime rib, chicken cordon blue, tortellini with alfredo sauce.  Nom noms! The morning following the nuptials, Mike hit up an Ogdensburg  landmark, Phillips Diner.  While overwhelmed with the plentiful meat options, he settled on Sausage Biscuits & Gravy (or Shit on a Shingle for you regulars), and the best poutine this side of the Canadian border. 

Life has been very good for Mike Rey this past week.  All rightness has been restored.
