Long Overdue Food Porn

Hot Doug’s GAME OF THE WEEK – top left
(Apple, Pear and Port Elk Sausage with Cherry-Fig Mustard and Caramelized Onion Marmalade Cheddar Cheese) ,
French fries (non-duckfat version),

and a Char-grilled Thuringer
(aka The Norm Crosby – formerly the Marty Allen and the Don Rickles)
with mustard and sport peppers – bottom right.
 Kuma’s Corner Green Flash Double Stout Black Ale, above;
below, an insanely good, brief revival of the Dark Throne burger
(
Chipotle Peppers, Goat Cheese, Fresh Pico de Gallo) and a very welcome pile of fresh hand-cut french fries!
The Dark Throne was a weekend special, which I truly hope they bring back to the menu full-time.

If you’re familiar with the burgers at Kuma’s, in heat level, it falls somewhere below Plague Bringer, but at the same level or above the Pantera Burger (Roasted Poblano Pepper, Bacon, Chedder and Monterey Jack, House made Ranchero Sauce, Tortilla Strips, not pictured).

Speaking of the Plague Bringer...
(Roasted Garlic Mayo, Tortilla Strips, House Made Hot Sauce, Fresh Garlic, Pepper Jack, Sliced Jalapenos
)


Square Bar in Chicago has a respectable burger and some tasty beer-battered onion rings.

The Big Square burger with fries (sweet potato fries are also an option)
(grilled onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and chili garlic sauce)

Most of my deep dish pizza food porn will be published at my new site, RealDeepDish.com,
but I figured, as long as I’m posting food porn…


Spinach and Garlic with Italian Sausage.


Sorpressata, Pepperoni, and Italian Sausage.





Happy National Cheeseburger Day!

Every September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day!

(Did you really think we were gonna miss this one?)

I’m not going to waste my time searching for the mysterious origins of this holiday,

as many attempted googlings* in the past have brought up little results.

Besides, that’s taking up way too much precious CHEESEBURGER-EATIN’-TIME!GO EAT A CHEESEBURGER!

IT’S YOUR NATIONAL HERITAGE!

*googlings – the attempt to acquire information via a popular internet-based search tool.



The oddest things pop into your head while eating a cheeseburger.

While eating a cheeseburger today, the oddest thought entered my brain.
Cheeseburgers do that a lot.

Math nerds might want to pay attention to this.
The rest of you can go back to looking at pictures of food porn on the other posts

Pi:
chocolate banana pie

You know Pi, right? Not the dessert. The thing that starts with 3.1415926… etc.

Well, many have been trying to calculate how many digits they can count Pi out to, and some have been trying to determine if Pi, in fact, is a non-repeating, non-terminating decimal. I don’t have the answers, and I’m not going to ‘Beck’ up some figures for or against what scientists currently hold as true, so I’ll just say it:

I found the last digit of Pi.

The last digit of Pi is ZERO.

Even if Pi repeats, doesn’t repeat, ends, or doesn’t end, and even if you never know the numbers preceding it, the last digit will ALWAYS be zero.

i.e. –

1.10 = 1.1
3.14159265 = 3.14152650
3.14159265????? = 3.14159265?????0

Math nerds, please confirm.
