Our April ride will not technically be in April, but it will be awesome nonetheless. We’ll be riding out to the Sly Fox Goat Race and Bock Fest. This event is one of a kind, and not to be missed. It will be a longer rider, about 30 miles each way. But there will be very few hills, and lots of off road paths. There is a train station nearby, in case you want to hitch a ride home. The fest starts at 11am, so to get there in a timely manner, we’ll be leaving the Art Museum at 9am. Get ready for an awesome ride and an awesome day!! See you then!
I haven’t been posting much about Honey’s lately. We still go frequently, but I’ve been sticking with the standards, as I’ve eaten through most of the menu. Or at least the parts of the menu that sound good to me. However this morning I noticed something that I hadn’t noticed before: eggs and pastrami. So I decided to give it a try.
It was basically 3 scrambled eggs with pastrami, not a fancy omelet. Which was fine by me. Along with a latke, this made a deliciously greasy and filling meal. I love any kind of Jewish deli meats and sandwiches, and this was like a breakfast version. The price, 7.50, was a bit high, otherwise this would enter into my normal rotation.
And in case you’re wondering, Jane always gets a pancake, and Madeline always gets grits. And both require heaps of butter.
I thought I may have mentioned this place before, but it appears as though I haven’t. Johnny’s Hots is a little sausage stand on Columbus Blvd across from Penn Treaty Park. Lately, I’ve been stopping by for lunch on the way to pick Madeline up from school in Fishtown.
For $3.50, you get a perfectly lunch sized sausage sandwich, and the quickest service you could possibly imagine. Seriously, your food will come out before you’ve even finished paying. It’s somewhere between a hot dog and a hoagie in size, which is a perfect lunch size. You won’t be stuffed, but you won’t be hungry. I’m a sucker for sausage, and anything hot*, so there is really no way I couldn’t love this place. But their hot sausage is really great, and so are the rolls.
And this morning I discovered their breakfast sandwich(s). Give me a couple more before I close the book, but after just one, I’m ready to declare it the best breakfast sandwich in the city. Fried egg, American cheese, and a hot sausage. Its mind-blowing. Honestly.
