It does help that you're right next to an ocean, too. I did go to a sushi place when I was in Vancouver over the summer, and it was pretty decent. Not amazing, but decent. I was sad I didn't have more time to explore Vancouver, it's an amazing city.

Well, you have about 9,000 sushi joints there, it takes time to find the best. A friend of ours (last name Lui ;) ) takes us out to the best restaraunts while we're there. Oh me yarm, I never thought bamboo could taste that good!!!

Are you a panda?

I never knew bamboo was served as a dish. That must mean that the entire House of Flying Daggers scene in the forest was actually one big food fight.

Bamboo sprouts are a very common vegetable in Asian cooking. You don't eat grown bamboo--it'd be like eating hardwood. Bamboo sprouts are generally harvested within a few hours of sprouting, while they're still soft. They still have a sort of woody texture to them, but they're absolutely delicious.

Oh, so long as we're comparing ages, I was 20, she was 17.

I probably could have done it four or five years earlier were I not completely socially inept until I graduated high school and realized a couple of key facts about social interaction.. mostly, no matter how bad it goes, you can just move on and forget about it.

Ooh Phenriz, something food-related we can agree on! Yes, water chestnuts are delicious. Whenever I am able, I really load up on these. The last chance I had to do this was at FiRE + iCE. For any of you Boston-area folk who have not yet been, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

1/2 of a man point, a whole man point would have been awarded if you just said eating water chestnuts, because being a man implies eating everything with bacon.

it's so ingrained in out manliness that (X) = man food. where X is (a+bacon) a= anything that is not bacon.

bacon is thus implied in everything we eat.

eating some chocolate? it'd better have bacon on, or in it. otherwise no man-points are awarded.

Bacon Exotic Candy Bar - New

Applewood smoked bacon + Alder smoked salt + deep milk chocolate


Deep milk chocolate coats your mouth and leads to the crunch of smoked bacon pieces. Surprise your mouth with the smoked salt and sweet milk chocolate combination.

Crisp, buttery, compulsively irresistible bacon and milk chocolate combination has long been a favorite of mine. I started playing with this combination at the tender age of six while eating chocolate chip pancakes drenched in maple syrup. Beside my chocolate-laden cakes laid three strips of fried bacon, just barely touching a sweet pool of maple syrup. Just a bite of the bacon was too salty and yearned for the sweet kiss of chocolate syrup. In retrospect, perhaps this was a turning point, for on that plate something magical happened: the beginnings of a combination so ethereal and delicious that it would haunt my thoughts until I found the medium to express it--chocolate.

I so no reason to not have bacon-wrapped bacon. Say, some hickory smoked bacon strips wrapped around a nice slice of canadian bacon. Or vice versa. Sounds savory good to me.

It sounds like the best tasting heart attack imagineable. The only way to make it better would be to surround the outer shell with some overly crispy bacon to give the entire thing some crunch while still maintaining the soft and tender texture.

That Fire and Ice place looks pretty good.

There was a new bar and grill that just opened up near my place. A friend of mine was in from out of town and we decided to check it out. They had a great selection of beer on tap as well they had burgers on special since it was Monday night.

I order one called a Black and Blue, it had hickory bacon, cajun mustard and blue cheese. It was one of the best burgers I had ever had. Plus they served Rickards White Ale and they actually brought orange slices out. I was very impressed. For a pitcher of beer and 2 burgers it was like $25. Anyone every come by Regina, SK I suggest checking out Rock Creek.

i'd love to, however i live in houston, and don't have the funds to splurge for a solo-man roadtrip of that magnitude atm.

i'd love to go.

too bad there isn't a contingent of texas XKCDers roadtripping to the september meetup. :/

I think there's like 3-5 active people I've noticed. That's enough to warrant a drunken proxy fest of doom at a local bar.

Not that I support drunken proxy fests of doom.

Not that I don't.

Oy. I am currently debating with myself about going to F&I tonight... an hour-ish (plus traffic) drive to Alewife, then the T in to Harvard Square (assuming that location is the chosen one). Meaning the earliest I could probably get there is 7, assuming traffic is not too bad. This is also assuming I overcome my reservations about going to dinner with internet people who know each other far better than I know any of them.

Why don't we just save it for meetup weekend? Or is that already going to be too busy?

We could do a pre-meetup dinner for area people at Fire and Ice some time next week. And PLAN. Muhahaha! Or not; this whole thing is getting incredibly complex. Anyway I talked a bit with Cat and I dunno if Fire and Ice will happen tonight, specially with the rain. Spontaneity is all well and good, but this place is worth a bit of advance notice. I am such a fanboy. I'm totally going to raise everyone's expectations and they will be disappointed with the reality. :(

Austin = Pretty decent sushi, along with pretty subpar sushi. I love that there is such a variety of food here, and most of it is pretty good quality if you know where to go. I could eat Thai food every day....

Dude, swords are SO manly. However one thing is for sure, Man drinks are for drinking. Girl drinks are looking good drinking. If it is decorated at all, you either need to be a woman, or filthy rich.

No, man drinks are for getting drunk and torturing yourself. Girly drinks are for actually tasting good.

At least in my experience.

Except the rum and coke. That's just delicious.

Tonight I openly rejected girly drinks and regretted it. Go with what tastes good to you.

I usually try to be manly and order whatever is super awesome, like a straight shot of whiskey or a dirty straight martini, or just beer.

But what I really wanted was a fizzy sweet grapefruit flavored something with alcohol in it that I couldn't taste.

Sigh.
