Bigass Burgers & Beer at Old Town Pub

When the weather is nice, we gravitate toward beer gardens. Old Town is a good area for them, though they get quite crowded and it can be hard to find a good place. By the time we found this one, I had become very hungry and a bigass burger was in order. Oh and beer.

black bean & chorizo burritos

In home cooking on May 3, 2010 at 11:19 pm

my newfound habit of poring over food blogs sometimes leads me astray. for one thing, i eat a LOT more than i used to. there are just so many good things i want to try and cuisines to explore! (sometimes my inner voice thinks its narrating for anthony bourdain instead of little ole me, who is growing a not so little belly)

more recently, its gotten me to buy about 5 big packages of mexican chorizo! which may not be such a bad thing, except that all of the recipes that led me to that purchase have actually requested spanish chorizo. which is apparently a totally different thing?!  good thing i found this recipe…
