Burgers and Dogs

What else would be appropriate just days before all the Independence Day festivities but burgers and dogs.

Looks like Jake is a fan not only of the 'Burgh but BRGR.  The BRGR food truck has been called to the set to provide burgers and fries.  Pittsburgh Magazine had a tipster  spill the word that the BRGR truck was called out to an undisclosed location where Southpaw was filming to help with late night cravings of the cast and crew.

Yes Jake went for the "junk" food, but you know with Jake that's really not junk.

BRGR was named one of the Best Restaurants in Pittsburgh has 3 locations (including PNC Park) as well as their food truck. Burger choices include dry-aged prime grass fed beef, turkey, salmon or black bean-corn falafel.  The Button Buster, a beef burger topped with braised beef short ribs, white cheddar cheese, bĂ©arnaise sauce and crispy onions. Also a favorite their spiked handcrafted shakes — the salty caramel is combination of vanilla ice cream, bourbon, caramel sauce, sea salt and vanilla bean. Add some truffle fries and that's how junk goes gourmet.

But man does not live by burgers alone this week - what's the 4th without some dogs, and  it's all going down in the 'burgh.

It was the 10th Annual "Weiner 100"  at Kennywood Park Amusement Park

And the winner of the heavyweights? Oscar Mayer von Wienerschnitzel the First

It's the summer of Pittsburgh.

There's a food truck in Wichita that my brother loves and it's called The Flying Stove. They serve truffle fries too, but I haven't tried them. Not even sure what they are. Boy, their burger looks excellent.

lol. I always liked that picture of Jake in the car taking a big ol' honkin' bite out of his food. But I have found someone who tops that. Jensen Ackles. LOL! Jensen has more pictures taken from SN where he is taking the biggest bite of food, oh my dog. And both of his cheeks will be filled just like a squirrel's. LOLLLLL!! I think it must be a running joke on the show.

Man oh man. It'll be a miracle if I make it to the end of this work day. This is insanity here sometimes. So much going on it is not funny. My days are just filled to the last second. And the day just flies by like nobody's business, but that is not always a good thing.

Happy Canada Day to our Mr. Seaweed!!! I hope you had a very nice day, Seaweed.

Alright well I have to go take a quick sweep of what's going on out there, can't even take a full lunch hour anymore. *sigh* But Hickory Smoked Tuna it is!!!! That stuff is THE best, you should try it sometime. Comes in a pouch and is ready to eat. Starkist makes it and don't tell me some horror story about something awful they do to the tuna. I hope not, anyway.

Have a great 2nd half. It's a race to the finish and that 5 o'clock whistle!!!!!!

Food trucks are awesome. In Philly they are amazing. If anyone has not seen the "The Chef" yet you should. It was really good movie:-) The food truck reminded of the movie.

Special K said...

There are a lot of great food trucks here in Boston. Including one that's all about lobster.

Tom, I wanted to see The Chef. I might have to wait until it comes out on DVD.

Oh.My.God. I may die of cuteness. Special, you really outdo yourself at times!

Happy 4th, everyone!

If you want to see how Boston celebrates (a little early this year) the 4th of July, here is the live stream:

What a wonderful moment to share Seaweed. Thanks!

Back in Chicago for the 4th of July. Thanks @ChloeBennet4

Generic picture of Chicago that could have been taken on any other times Austin was in Chicago.

The picture of them "appearing" to kiss undoubtedly wasn't taken today either.

Why? Because Chloe's been pimping this trip for a couple of days, both pictures come out today, his picture has nothing to do with her, and it's a long holiday weekend.

Wanna bet he's with his real firecracker? BRGR up Austy.

Same Shit Different Holiday

I loved this comment on FauxChlo's instagram.

joyjoyjoyce216 Who's the guy?

I'm not sure what that means when Austin fakes his fauxmance in front of JFK.

And Ronald Reagan was a much loved man who held the office of the American presidency.

So for those two to carry out their lying spectacle in front of both of these presidents' picture is a very poor act of judgement and what on earth was Austin thinking.

prairiegirl said...

Interesting that the Faux hash tagged #tbt isn't it?

LOL! So not only is Grey Goose not there, she probably isn't either.

Ok, enough time spent on that Melba toast. Their 15 minutes is up.

Maybe he thought some of JFK's love of women would rub off on him? #PropinquityFail
