Chelada II: The Reckoning

Over Labor Day Weekend, we attended a BBQ at the humble abode of the illustrious Larry Clow. We brought along one leftover can of Chelada to pass around to the unsuspecting masses. Tucker was even brave enough to submit herself to the ordeal of Chelada for a second time. Here are some reaction shots from people tasting Chelada.

Then Larry made us these heart-attack inducing burgers, which consisted of a burger, three strips of bacon, and a fried egg all sandwiched between two glazed donuts.

We decided to split one.

And Tucker, quite literally, had egg on her face.

    First, gotta plug The Alchemist as perhaps VT’s best example of NOT bad booze.

    Second, Paul and I were going to go there on Labor Day but it was closed, so we shuffled into a neighboring restaurant which advertised up to 30 beers on tap. It’s called The Resevoir (no relation to Montreal’s Resevoir microbrew) and did indeed have a hefty tap list.

    But it also had Chelada. In the can.

    Despite your effervesent review, I did not try it. Maybe I’ll take you fine folks there and you can show me how it’s done. And then we’ll run screaming like little girls into the waiting arms of The Alchemist.

    “T&T Bad Booze Review does VT”? I like the sounds of that!

  2. Paula Deen calls refers to the burger recipe as “The Lady’s Brunch Burger” and insists that people should limit themselves to a single serving per lifetime.

    Subtract the egg and you get a Luther Burger, supposedly named for (and possibly invented by) Luther Vandross. As far as I know, there is no limit to the number of these one should consume and I challenge a cardiologist to correct me.
