Spotted On Kingsland Avenue: Ingenuity

When I saw this parked in front of Boneshakers today I simply had to pass it along here. Genius. Sheer genius.

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 “Makeout Party” (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.

attached is a pic i snapped of a banner over a soon to be laundromat. over 80 new manchines!  pretty funny!  it’s over at the corner of kingsland and nassau (244 Nassau Avenue to be precise —Ed. Note).  all joking aside i’m excited for a new laundromat in our neck of the woods, all the ones close by are super shitty.  also, do you have any word on when wardak is supposed to open?  i either trek to key food, or i deal with met food since it’s close but man, it is so bad.

Wardak looked pretty close to completion back in November but with this economy who knows? If anyone out there knows if/when this grocery store is set to open by all means please share.

And oh yeah, the Met Food on Nassau Avenue is disgusting. However, it makes a rather nice appearance in the movie Street Trash. Watch this trailer and see for yourself!

UPDATE, 4:15 p.m.: I swung by Wardak on my way to Boneshakers (to purchase some cupcake and sauerkraut love). They were busy at work!


I’ll expound upon on my Boneshakers experience in a bit. Stay tuned!
