Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout

Food and Drink

Philly Beer Week 2014 is upon us and although I don’t typically plan to take full advantage of it each year, I do keep my eye out for an event or 2 to check out. Yesterday I found and caught my white whale despite thinking the ship had sailed long ago so to speak. In […]

Prevent A Hangover

Food and Drink

Well not quite. This may not prevent a hangover but for the craft beer drinker, this may be the best news I’ve ever seen. Sure, maybe when I was in college pounding crappy beer for the end result, this would defeat the point. However for those of us getting up there in age, with possibly […]

Federal Donuts Figured It Out

Food and Drink

Just had an excellent 4 day weekend “spring break” that, as usual, went way too fast. I was moving non stop every day and one of those stops just so happened to be Federal Donuts which I’ve had on my food wish list for quite some time now. I heard nothing but good things regarding […]

6th Annual Lee’s Beer Experience

Food and Drink

So yesterday was the 6th Annual Lee’s Beer AND Tequila Experience and I’m actually upset to say that unless things change with the direction of this festival, I won’t be too upset that this was probably my last beer festival. It just seems to have gotten completely out of hand. I’m not sure if Lee’s […]

Fogo de Chao

Food and Drink

I went to Fogo de Chao (Chão) last night. I was waiting for so long to get back there. Today I feel terrible that I didn’t eat more. I ate a lot but I’m still pissed I didn’t eat more. The place is so good that no matter how much you eat and how disgusting […]

5th Annual Lee’s Beer Experience

Food and Drink

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The 5th Annual Lee’s Beer Experience has arrived. Tomorrow at 3PM. Be there or don’t be there. Either way, when it’s all over you’ll probably have some major regrets. What I’m watching: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I Like To Eat

Food and Drink

It may not be a new world record but it’s at least a new Brett record. Probably. 10 pounds in less than 10 days. Boy did I do a lot of eating while in Philadelphia last week almost cracking 5000 calories on 2 different days highlighted by a not terribly caloric day but by a […]

Monte Carlo Breakfast Buffet… Dominated

Food and Drink

I went to the Monte Carlo breakfast buffet this morning which is now a much more expensive Champagne brunch. Here’s how it went down: Plate 1: 5/6th of a cheese omelet with mushrooms, peppers, olives, tomatoes, spinach and shrimp; 2 pieces of bacon; 3/4th piece of breakfast sausage; scoop of hashbrowns; 1 hash brown patty; […]
