Eating It Episode 54 - It's A Lot More Purple Than I Expected

We're back! Took a little break for the holidays but David ad Andy are back and this week David talks about his road trip to New Mexico where apparently he barely ate. He did enjoy a sandwich at Oak Tree Café in Albuquerque, NM that sounds awesome. Andy takes us to one of his favorite places to eat, Meadow Village Family Restaurant, in Benson, NC where you can always get some fatback and chocolate cake. Then David heads down the street to Güero's Taco Bar in Austin, TX. His decision was tough as to what to order, but in the end he chose wisely, and so did his wife (off the menu that is). In the end, despite the googling, we still don't know what escobeche is, we just know David ate it, and hasn't died yet. Enjoy!

Eating It Episode 53 - Where's The Bread Lady?

David and Andy are off on another adventure this week as they talk about performing comedy and great places to eat while on the road. This week Andy talks about THE BEST CHEESESTEAK in NC (in his opinion). He takes us to Wilmington, NC to J. Michael's Philly Deli where the Cheesesteaks come swimming in cheese with a fork stabbed in them. Then David takes us back to Sequim, WA at the Oak Table Cafe where there is something different about their pancakes. They won't tell you what it is even though it's printed right there on the menu. Then we discuss splitting meals with your significant other and the issues that arise from doing that. We learn that when David's wife says she wants some sausage, SHE MEANS IT! Enjoy!

Eating it Episode 52 - That's How My Mommy Makes It

This week is a special episode because not only do we have a guest, but it is David's sister and long time listener, EMILY TOBEY! (YEAH!) This week we talk to David and Emily about the great places they ate while on David's comedy run in the Northwest. First it was Aunt Becky's Deli in SeaTac, WA where Emily found out that not everybody serves egg salad hot. Then they DROVE PAST Voodoo Doughnuts and didn't have any. (FOR SHAME!) Next it was Sweetwaters On The River in Eugene, OR where David dined in elegance and Emily dined like it was Chuck E Cheese's. They enjoyed a fabulous breakfast at Studio 1 Cafe also in Eugene where the pancakes were thick and the Huevos were runny. David then took Emily to an old favorite, Jasper's Cafe in Medford, OR. There, David tried the Elk Burger and Emily tried the Black Bean burger. They stopped at Richard's Donuts in Medford which has a creepy website. And Finally they ended their food & comedy trek at Kaleidoscope Pizzeria and Pub where we learned that if you get the Cheese Sticks for an appetizer, they might just be enough to feed an army. There is some slight sound issues but worth it for the laughs. Don't miss our discussion on the pronunciation of Jalapeño. This is a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Then Andy takes us back to Augusta, GA where he found a great place for breakfast where it's so good you'll suck it right out of your teeth at the Sunrise Grill. David then heads down the street from his house to the Galaxy Cafe, (where all the attractive ladies apparently eat), to try a free range chipotle chicken wrap. No one is more shocked than us as to how prepared David is for this episode. It is yet another great time, so give it a listen. Enjoy!
