Culture on the Cheap
The Boneshakers Makeout Party Experience

…I cannot wait to try these folks out for lunch. I mean, how can you NOT try a sandwich called â€œMakeout Partyâ€ (spicy tofu, garlic, hummus, sauerkraut, tomato, red onions on a hoagie)?
Well, today dear readers, was that day. I awoke with a strange hankering for foodstuffs that would render my kisser completely unfit for human habitation. What’s more, I am married. I have no need to impress anyone anymore. If it gives me gas so much the better. It’ll give me yet another thing with which to torment the Mister (can you say “dutch oven”?). Our marriage is— for better or worse— one long Beavis and Butthead marathon. But I digress.
I bundled up, tossed on my sneakers and headed over to Boneshakers. I first ordered a couple of their chocolate mint cupcakes. Then I got right down to business:
I’d like one Makeout Party sandwich please.
It took them a little while to whip it up but it was totally worth the wait.
Behold, eight full inches of social suicide for a mere $7.00! That’s less than a buck per inch. Try one of these bad boys for yourself; not only is it a tasty concoction (especially on a cold day like today), but you get the added value of having garlic/sauerkraut breath for at least a full two hours after consumption.
Culinary tip: be sure to wash your Makeout Party sandwich down with a can of Budweiser. Trust me on this one.
