From now on it's Oscar Sauce on top of everything

I'm back from a short hiatus, where I was helping KPMD and Shamrock move into a spacious row house in Philadelphia's historic Trash District.

My muscles are aching, but my belly's full, thanks to the couple's payment of moving services in food. In addition to the Dunkin' Donuts, cheesesteak, and pizza, I had my Smith & Wollensky cherry popped, where our waiter (Ewan McGregor's slightly effeminate American twin brother) served me a fine big-ass medium-rare sirloin topped with Oscar Sauce* (bernaise with crab meat and asparagus) with hash browns and grilled vegetables. Scrumtrulescent.

There's a S&W in Columbus and when it comes time for me to move in a few months, I'll be sure to drive my helpers by it on the way to Wendy's. It's the least I could do.

*Not to be confused with Rocket Sauce.

wendy's eh? you're a generous and kind man.

don't they have a little caesar's in your area. i mean, c'mon, 'pizza (and) pizza.'

spydrz said...

But it's the original Wendy's.

Micah said...

Unlike Mr. Drummond, I am not a man of means. And Wendy's ain't so bad...

The Law Fairy said...

Is this waiter single? Can you introduce me?

Micah said...

Purely speculation, but I don't think you are, uh, his type.

Captain Backfire said...

I second that assessment of Ewan's brother. But if you order your steak medium rare and Oscar style, he'll absolutely LOOOOOVE you and take you to a 1/2 price matinee of "Brokeback". Then he'll make you a Radiohead mix tape.

Micah said...

Ha! I forgot about his love of Radiohead.

He said he was going to mess with my steak for requesting extra bacon on Bridget the Veggie's salad, but it tasted fine to me. Granted, I've never tasted Oscar Sauce before, so I don't know if it was "off" or not.

Did anybody get a good look at all of the pins on his vest? Just wondering what his commendations were for.

spydrz said...

Those "pins" are actually flair.

Captain Backfire said...

It's just S&W's version of flair. Instead of "We're not in Kansas anymore" you get "Ask me to name all the varietals of the Loire Valley". And instead of Jennifer Aniston, you get Ewan McGregor's slightly effeminate American brother. Worth the trade? You decide...

Captain Backfire said...

See? I get too wordy and I get beaten to the joke! Serves me right.

Micah said...

Less is more.

The Dubin said...

Hmmmm...original Wendy's, huh?

jasdye said...

i hate it when i have to explain my lame jokes.

wendy's is kind of upscale for fast-food burgers, right? kind of like a Targets to McDonald's KMart. pizza's the cheap alternative, isn't it, for paying movers? or is that just a chicago thing?

enuff explaining bad jokes.

and... don't you think the waiter would like a little fairy to go w/ his flair?

spydrz said...

You can be wordy, you just have to type faster...

OK, no more posting until after 24. Then we can discuss on my blog...

Micah said...

dubin - Oh, yes, that one. So I can count you in?

The Law Fairy said...

I always thought something like Steak N Shake would be the Target of fast foods -- they even have waitstaff in their restaurants.

jasdye - if he looks like Ewan, I will *be* his flair. Sigh...

And, Micah, I'm not above trying to pull a more-successful Elaine and get him to switch teams.

Micah said...

You can try all you want, but I don't think it'll do any good.
