On Thursday, I tweeted about my lunch at Burgerville. Technically, I guess it was a sub-sub-tweet, since I didn't mention the name of the restaurant or even the specific food items (pepper bacon cheeseburger, waffle cut fries, chocolate milkshake). Anyway. My fellow Portlandians Wink and Brian added their own remarks, and then Larry cascaded it into a very cheesy conversation.
Meanwhile, on Facebook—where my tweets get auto-cross-posted—others continued the ad hoc comedy workshopping. And because I have nothing better to do on a Friday night than answer Puzzled Pint e-mails and watch Downton Abbey, I decided to turn my hasty sketch into something more suitable for Thomas to post in his kitchen.
Here's the original:
And now (drum roll, please) the new hotness:
The pictured foodstuffs are (top to bottom, left to right):
- Hot Sauce: Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce
- Beer: Puzzled Pint (logo by Victor Asteinza; not actually food, but definitely a Portland institution!)
- Whiskey: Eastside Distilling Burnside Bourbon
- Butter: Tillamook Butter
- Caffeine: Stumptown Coffee Cold Brew "Stubby"
- Chocolate: Moonstruck Milk Chocolate Mayan Bar
- Fat: raw bacon (stock photo by Floortje)
- Salt: J&D's Bacon Salt (actually a Seattle company, but I'll allow it because BACON SALT)
- Starch: Kenny and Zuke's Pastrami Cheese Fries (photo by Robyn Lee for Serious Eats)
- Sugar: Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Bar

So that happened.
This concludes tonight's episode of How's Curtis Wasting His Goddamn Time Now? Come back next week for more frivolity. Or just follow me on Twitter if you simply cannot wait that long.
I had to check if you had any affiliation with the AARDVARK hot sauce.
Meg and I are sharing Valentine's Day delivery pizza and my gut reaction is "There's got to be a pizza that goes 11-for-11 here". On further reflection there probably isn't (at least, not one I'd want to eat except as a stunt) but you could quite easily make a pizza followed by a cheesecake, served with a beer or two on the side, which would get a full house.
ANONYMOUS: I am not an aardvark.
CHRIS: I would be simultaneously repulsed but irresistibly drawn to a "goes to eleven" pizza. It would, of course, be made with a cornmeal crust and served with a boilermaker. :)
