what do you eat when you are......not sober?? - Sun, 09/28/03 9:09 PM

as one who has been lurking in the e-shadows for a while, let me begin by saluting all the regulars, [i feel as if i have come to know an unseen cadre of friends], also the many new posters who with their assertiveness have given me the verve to come forthwith.
as i have from the start, i will frequent these pages after a night spent wastefully on the "town", and satiate my hunger for both intelliget diatrabe and , well, hunger.
plainly asked, is there a faviorite snack or easy chow down whilst imbibed?
my preference is eggs any style, butter[lots] and toast.easy and filling.
god bless,
p.

When I was 21, and after an evening of drinking Rum and Coke I decided to stumble down the block to the 7-11. I bought a bag of Chips Ahoy and a Gallon of Milk. I stumbled back to my house flopped down in the recliner, poured me a big glass of milk and tore open the cookies. I woke up the next afternoon still in the recliner. Gallon of milk was gone as were the Chips Ahoy. By the way, I lived alone at the time. Aliens???????

Umm, a "friend" once woke up sitting up with a peanut butter sandwich in her lap...one bite missing.

When I lived in Albuquerque, gig nights were always ended with a visit to the Frontier at about 2:30 a.m. for huevos rancheros, a sweet roll and coffee.

If the Frontier was too much of a madhouse, Whataburger would do in a pinch.

WHITE CASTLES......Lots of them stacked up in my lap...and a pile of empty little boxes growing on the floor as I dive deeper and deeper into the pile!

And then if you pass out, you have a nice soft cushion of empty boxes to fall into! Genius!

It seems my body craves grease for some reason. Perhaps it is because the alcohol has created a very tender raw stomach.

We do not have White Castles in Knoxvile but have Krystal's which are similar. A few of those does the trick and generally makes me very sleepy after ingestion.

Even a good hot Krispy Kreme does the trick.

Nowadays I don't get to the point when I'm not sober. Back in my college and High School days it was always one of the following places. 7/11 for a 7/11 microwaved burrito, white castle, taco bell (you can see how my taste has changed over the last 20 years) or "the diner" which back on Long Island was your typical lavish 24 hour Greek, Meditteranean style diner with the 15 page menu. You can find these diners literally every 1/2 mile. I really miss them. The closest long island style diners are in the Hartford CT area, an 80 mile drive.

Like wanderingjew, a trip to the Greek diner was always the last stop after an evening of not soberness. It's the perfect place to go with a group because they truly have something for everyone. Eggs and omelettes, burgers (fries with brown gravy, please!), a club sandwich, greek platters, and, of course, that delicious but incongruous Greek diner classic: Chinese roast pork on garlic bread, etc., etc. Finish that off with a huge piece of cake or pie which caught your eye as it was revolving around in the lit bakery case next to the cash register.

Jack-in-the-box tacos. Accept no substitute. Except maybe a chili size at the Waffle House.

We have place in Columbus, OH called TeeJay's Country Place that is the late night destination of those who have had a few too many. I think the best thing to get after a night out is the Barnyard Buster. It is basically a plate of eggs, potatoes and biscuits with the whole plate completely covered with a thick layer of sausage gravy. It is also one of the few places in town I have seen that serves creamed chipped beef.

I think this will cover alot of the world, but if you want to find really drunk people or really sober people and almost no one in between you will need to head for Waffle House. It seems to be the gathering point in my part of the South for drunks looking to sober up and people chatting after various 12 step meetings. I always enjoy the mix.

Well ! first I must say that a proper Southern Gentleman is never not sober !!

But .... when one needs a repast from an evening of tasting fine Southern spirits ... one often hankers for a Bacon and Egg sandwich ... with thick slices of market sliced hickory smoked bacon and fresh brown country eggs gently caressed by freshly made sourdough bread toasted to perfection with an application of mayo ... Dukes, of course !!!

Or so I have heard !!!

Diner food is the best way to cap off an evening of drinking. The more grease the better, especially if it is food that you would think twice about eating while sober. My favorite stops:
Stumbling up the hill to UVM in Burlington VT : Gravy Fries from Nectars. Or a delivery of wings.
Stumbling anywhere in Britain : A huge serving of chips and cheese.
Stumbling around Providence : New York System! 3 or 4 up the arm.
Stumbling around Boston : used to be Kappy's over by Northeastern for chicken fingers. Now South St. Diner has been doing the trick. A supah roast beef with cheese and sauce from Mike's on Rt. 99 is good, if you have a friendly non-hammered driver.
Nothing like waking up to discover an ENORMOUS empty bag of take-out food in the morning and thinking...'I was THAT hungry?'

When I was living in Missoula, there were generally two places to head at the end of the "bar run." One was the Missoula Club, which served handmade burgers any size you want with anything you wanted on them. I seem to remember a lot of Pepper Jack cheese. The other was the Oxford Cafe, affectionately known as "the Ox" which had calves brains and eggs on the menu. Now, there's something very few Missoulians ate sober.

PS. Just visited Missoula after a ten-year absense and both establishments are still going strong.

A chili size at the Waffle House? I've been eating at Waffle Houses for years and I've never seen that on the menu.

I'm not a fan of the TeeJay's offerings that are covered with the gravy, but I do like their chipped beef on biscuits.

When with a group after a night of drinking, it was always eggs, home fries, sausage and toast plus coffee naturally in a diner. When alone it was White Castle:4 hamburgers and 4 cheeseburgers, all eaten by the time I arrived home

Chili relleno, kimchi, pistachios.......but if I am in the mood to venture out (with someone else driving of course!) the Jack Tacos really fit the bill! Somehow that's the only time they actually taste good------but they are superb at that point!

This goes back aways, but for many years the place to go in Boston late at night hammered or sober, was Mondo's. The original Mondo's was in Haymarket Sq. before it was yuppified, opened around 11:00 PM and stayed open until about 6:00 AM. Later it moved to, I think, Sleeper St in what is now the Seaport area. Their big item was the farmer's special breakfast, which cost $1.00. This consisted of 3 eggs over easy, home fries, ham, bacon or sausage and a couple of pieces of toast, coffee and juice; should have been a money loser for them even then, except for the volume with which the cooks slung the stuff out. There was no time or need for heat lamps because of the turnover and everything they served came from the haymarket, so was very fresh. I'm not exactly sure how many times I went there during the 70's and early 80's (heh heh), but it was a lot. I remember the guy cooking the eggs had two 3 x 4 ft. griddles going and they were full constanly; he cracked 4 eggs at a time, using both hands, and filled up 2 trash cans at the same time with the shells. Oddly enough, the only other thing anyone ever ordered was strawberry shortcake, and they sold alot of that also. Haven't thought about Mondo's in years; a truly classic dive with good cheap food and a hilarious cast of characters.

Well, for me last night (I'm unemployed, so no reason to stay sober on Sunday nights, LOL) it was homemade clam dip and chips, and I think at some point I ate some green olives stuffed with blue cheese. No cooking while not-sober, or else the smoke alarm goes off.

And I'm jealous that we don't have Jack In the Box or Steak N Shake here for those late-night snacks. JITBs tacos are weird, but they RULE!

Well, as for me, "Lips that touch wine will never touch Mine."

Or, wait a minute, maybe that was "lips that touch headcheese will never touch mine".

Shoot, I don't know. I get all that stuff mixed up...

I will Add the Jack in the Box Taco to the White Castle choices. Even without booze !

We used to (4 years ago) get a bag of 9 at 3 for a $1..$3 and another buck for a large Dr Pepper/ Mr Pibb and my 30 minute duty-free lunch period was braced enough to let me educate your kids for another couple of hours!

You probably would have fared better with the booze depending on the age group you were exposed to. Bring back the paddles!

I had a friend that woke up to an empty box of Livah Snaps and an empty container of Alouette cheese. For me it's usually a nice greasy burger and curley fries.

When I was younger, I would end up at Pat's King of Steaks in South Philadelphia. After the bars closed (2am), the line at Pat's would be filled with people of the same condition.
Nowadays, I'll eat whatever's closeby. If I'm home, it will include almonds.

On occasion, my other "food of choice" is Original Tommy's-----gotta be near one, but a 3am chiliburger or chili tamale works. Just watch out in the morning when you sober up!

I have to confess to never eating a Jack In The Box taco, though I have heard plenty about the chain. Here in the northeast, we are not exposed to nearly as many chains. For instance, we don't have Hardee's, Sonic, or Carl's Jr. I would like to try one just once though. They have to beat Taco Bell!!!

Jack in the Box's were all over the northeast when I was growing up in the late 60's-70's. My favorite and first fast food joint to have a drive-up window was the Jack in the Box in Edison (Menlo Park), NJ right across from the Menlo Park Mall.

OOers, the husband is well aware of what TeeJay's Country can do for a liquor binge. Across the river from us in Ironton OH, we have something similar called the ChickenCoop at a place called Peddler's that stays open all night.

In highschool was in Bethesda, MD and we went after parties to Tastee Diner (still there!). Our usual poison after a long party night was homefries with creamed chipped beef and fried eggs on top with ketchup. It was bad, but it was good!

So...ever been thrown out of an establishment whilst intoxicated?

Once (in my early 20s), around 3 am, I went to JOHNNY'S FRENCH DIP PASTRAMI for the first time. I ordered a French Dip. They gave me a pastrami sandwich with jus. I said,
"No, I wanted a FRENCH DIP"
"That IS a FRENCH DIP".
"This is pastrami!"
"It's a pastrami french dip"
"Pastrami is pastrami and french dip is french dip!"
After much argument they took me outside to show me the sign:

JOHNNY'S
FRENCH DIP
PASTRAMI

I said, "Those are 2 seperate sandwiches; they are on 2 seperate lines!"
Needless to say, they took advantage of the fact that we were already outside to encourage my date to usher me into the car.

The best de-tox is to always take the aspirin before you go to bed, but the eggs, bacon, cheeseburgers, fries, Liva-Snaps, whatever, helps, too.

A long time ago, my wife had been out to see The Neville Brothers (when they were funky and before Aarron started crooning full time) and after the show headed for the much heralded Camellia Grill on Carrollton Ave in New Orleans. I ordered a spanish omelette and orange juice. She ordered a waffle and a coke.

The waiter in whites and a bow tie delivered our drinks and performed the ritual of "the removal of paper from the straw". My wife took a sip of her drink and....that is where the trouble began.

My wife immediatly informed me and everyone around me that she had not been delivered a coke. There was something wrong with her order and she wanted it filled again. The waiter tasted the drink in the machine and pronounced it o.k. He poured her another and this time her reaction was even worse. I finally tasted her drink, just to see what the hub bub was about and it immediatly occured to me what the problem was. Even though the machine said Coke, with the familiar red and white wavelike label, it was actually dispensing "new coke". As soon as I verbalized my theory, my wife lost it.

"What kind of place is this? I've been coming here all my life and I thought ya'll were traditionalist. You big suck ups to corporate marketing strategy, etc., etc., ad infinitum.

I finally had to physically remove her from the place and escort her back to her padded cell. I have only seen her behave like that one other time in twenty years, and that involved an incident with me, a checkbook, and a 1972 convertible Volkswagen and the subsequent undiscussed purchase thereof.

Normally she is a nice, friendly, hippie mom type.

Just don't bring her a "New Coke" or buy any cool used cars without asking her about it first

Waffle House. When you absolutely must be sober, a double order of hash browns, covered and diced, will do it. But I don't play the Waffle House songs over and over, as some do. I'm not that cruel.

Mayhaw Man, there isn't anything wrong with Aaron's crooning. He can still get funky when funk is called for. Have you heard his cover of "Ain't No Sunshine When You're Gone"? I do wish he and his brothers would tour more. Upstate SC could use the Neville Brothers to put some funk in their trunks.

in detroit, after a night of boozin', i eat at one of the following places:

lafayette coney island for a coney and cheese fries (real shredded cheddar, not that metled goo) and a coke.

josephs coney island for a grilled cheese that is good both drunk or hung over...a rare thing. and a coke, of course...

geneva burger for sliders with onion rings and coke.

AND both geneva and lafayette have interesting crowds that go well with late nite public drunkeness

Actually after giving this thought, I do usually eat.....crow.

For dessert it'd have to be Waffle House, or Krystal burgers.

I completely agree that there is NOTHING wrong with Aarron Neville's voice. With the very notable exceptions of the late Mahalia Jackson and the late Tan Canary, Johnny Adams, there has never been a finer voice to come out of Orleans Parish (with the possible exception of Irma Thomas, but I think she has made some very bad material choices over the years).

That being said........if you had had the pleasure to witness the Neville Brothers in their earliest inception as the"Neville Brothers" you would know what I mean. This would be the period when Tipitina's had just opened and the Funky Meters and the Wild Magnolias (both of whom were wonderful on their own) had disbanded and joined forces (kind of) to become the Neville Brothers. The Nevilles with Darrell Johnson on bass and Brian Stoltz on guitar (he was only about 19 or 20 at that point) were awesome. Huge repetoire, great chops, cheap cover charge, I never had a complaint. The now out of print album "Neville Brothers 1982, Live at Tipitina's" perfectly captures the feeling of this act. I was at the shows and they nailed it. THe record is still available on ebay from a bunch of sources. Get it. It is one funky piece of work.

Some of the best nights of my entire life were spent watching these guys. I have rarely achieved since the feeling of stumbling out into the light after 5 hours of the funk. I always left feeling grateful to be alive. I guess that is what great music is all about. Los Lobos can still do it to me, occasionally. Lots of jazz can.

After Aarron's album of standards with Linda Ronstadt the focus of the band changed to accomodate fans of the crooning thing. While their shows in New Orleans have remained substantially different than what they play in Casino's and Festivals, there is still a twenty or thiry minute break with nothing bu Aarron on stage doing Ave Maria, etc. It can be wonderful, but I generally find myself looking for Art and Cyril playing keyboard vocal tag until the roof blows off of the place.

Just my humble opinion, but if you think I feel strongly about good food, I feel ten times stronger about music. They are both food for the soul

I gotta agree with you on that one, improvisor..Waffle House wins by default around here, because it's the only place that's open when the parties are all ending. Hubby and I are too old to party, and we're not big drinkers. But we have had the pleasure many times of looking for something to eat after 11pm here, and always end up at Waffle House, simply because it's the only place to go.

Mayhaw:

I'm with you on numerous counts. About the only thing that turns me on more than food (and my wife, of course) is music.

The funky early Nevilles stuff, such as "Fiyo on the Bayou" and "Hey Pocky Way", is incredible and way outshines the more recent AOR Nevilles recordings. By the way, I think that the Live at Tipitina's CD is still available at Amazon.com.

For pure spine-tingling vocalizing, Johnny Adams "The Real Me" gives me shivers. Almost all of Johnny's Rounder recordings, whether Jazz, Standards or Blues, were truly remarkable.The untimely passing of The Tan Canary was certainly a great loss for music lovers everywhere. It's a shame he never reached a larger commercial audience.

I'm in an accounting office & we are going through a complete system change (software et al) & at the same time we are ending one fiscal year & starting another Yesterday I was playing a CD I had made up of AAron's songs, since they have been driving us pretty hard in the office we decided that "Angola Bound" was our new theme song, but we all nearly fell off our chairs when they delivered new computer monitors to us & sat the boxes in the doorways of our cubicles, pretty much blocking us in! We said, now the jailhouse effect was complete!
