You put what on my burger??? Stones Pub Perfection

I was a bit skeptical about this one folks. I love me a proper burger, and nobody fire grills one in this town better than Stones Pub….but Dayum! May I introduce to you, The Peanut Butter Bacon Burger from heaven!!

At first glance, it appears to be a fine example of a perfect bacon-cheese burger. No silly stack of off-season tomatoes and tired lettuce here, just bun, bacon, cheese, and burger..Right?

But with closer observation, a powerful and mysterious ingredient melts it’s way around the pile of swine. What is that oozing down that perfectly grilled mound of meat? Is it mayo? Mustard? Special Sauce? That red stuff southerners put on dogs?? Nope, it’s peanut butter! And if you love your momma, and this country, you better get your ass down to Stones and show that you have a pair!

Once you start, it’s on! Your mouth, and your soul, cannot believe what’s happening at this moment!! You are now part of a love affair you swore you would never be a part of, ever. Soon you will realize it’s True Love.
Now, if you can’t find it on the menu, or specials menu, just ask! Stones Pub and Eatery, dear Geezuz, it’s a life changer! If you dare to dabble, please let me know what you think of your first peanut butter bacon burger experience!

Neighborhood Apothecary at a new address

Remember the Neighborhood Apothecary? I wrote about them not long ago when I discovered them at the block party. At the time, you sort of had to follow a map or a trail of bread crumbs to get to their store on the 4th floor of the Blackburn building.  I saw the owner Meg and her associate Clint the other day, moving into new retail space on Pleasant Street!

Their new location is 17 Pleasant Street:

I bought some chamomile while I was there.
Meg was out, so Clint was manning the counter:

Clint’s name was inspired by Clint Eastwood, but he’s much nicer than Dirty Harry.

Stop by and check out their wares! They will be having a grand opening soon for the new location. I’ll post the info when it is available.
