Cleveland milkshake sex

If a good milkshake is like good sex, than a vanilla bean apple pie bacon shake with a shot of bourbon is like great sex with a guy who's got good breath and a really big dick.

I know what I'm talking about, I had that very shake the other day at Michael Symon's newest joint here in Cleveland, B Spot Burgers, and I got the pix to prove it (sorry, no pix of good breath/great sex/big dick--you'll just have to trust me on that part).


Hey man, you're good-lookin' and you're bringing me a burger? Down.


I'll have the "Thin Lizzy" thank you very much, after all, if the boys wanna fight you better let 'em.


Vintage beer cans and it's cool.


Give your Goat some 'nilla pie bacon bourbon shake.


Hell yeah, celeb chef Michael Symon's a Clevelander! Just dig the bottle of Stadium Mustard on every table.


Big boob mural chick with a tat.


Antlers and the big B beer can wall.


Relish bar from heaven with pickled everything and gimme some of those peppers.


Self portrait in weird mirror in unisex bathroom. Hi, Self.


Love you too, baby.


Nah, you go on ahead and have the last one.


B Spot is righteous and see you again real soon!

That milkshake was GENIUS. It had tiny crispy bits of bacon in it, just the right amount of sweet and that hint of bourbon.

GAWWWD!

The hamburgers were dead-on as well. Juicy, high-quality beef and just the right size. Great buns, great toppings. HELL YEAH!

Gimme a meal at the B and good lay, baby, and I am so down.

Erin O'Brien said...

Hey chic, thanks for droppin' in, but that thar ain't no donut, it's an onion ring, babygirl!

That looks like my kinda joint. I'd be so into that Red Hot burger with the pulled pork, pickled tomatoes and hot peppers. And that bacon/bourbon milkshake. As Mary Poppins says, these are a few of my favorite things.

Checked with my cardiologist and he declared the joint off limits.

B.E. Earl said...

All that and $1 PBR drafts? I may have to make a road trip.

Seems to me that I saw something else somewhere about a wicked good place in Cleveland... you are making me want a burger and a shake.

I think unisex bathrooms are sensible. I like places with unisex bathrooms. They just seem so... sensible. A place down the street has a big room surrounded by smaller rooms with full doors, so that people of whatever sex can have complete privacy and not have to worry about men seeing their frilly undies around their ankles peeking out from under the stall. The big middle room has one of those huge round handwash stations with warm water, and it means you smile in a friendly way at the people across the giant stainless steel sink from you.

Obviously, unisex bathrooms mean a lot to me. Maybe I should write more about this.

I found it. Apparently Lucky's Cafe is fab and wonderful and all that good O'Brien-liking shit.

That sounds and looks a whole lot better than a Cleveland Steamer!

LimesNow said...

Get ready, I'm comin' to Cleveland now. This puts the deep-fried Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes stand in Las Vegas' Fremont Street Experience to shame. And, no, I've never actually eaten those things, but I sure like to watch the human theater in front of the stand.

WV - cooful. You sure are, Erin!

Erin O'Brien said...

You hear that, Forbes? Limes is coming to CLE from Las Vegas!

LimesNow said...

Oh, I thank you for shouting out Forbes! The office is closed, the homes settled. I've booked LAS to CLE, Flight #1234 ~ the redeye. Got my room booked, my rental car arranged. I'm little and I don't eat much at one sitting, but - by god - I know the art of the doggie bag. That meal could last me a month! I've not tasted a milkshake (not once) since 9-11-2001 (seriously). I may grab me some Badger as he has Cleveland experience (though decades ago) and I'll be on my way! Great post, Erin!

OMG....I'm having a heart attack just reading this. This would definitely be on the top of my list of "What would you want your last meal to be if you were on death row."

Mmmmm...bacon....

First try at posting a link--Owner of Owner's Manual O.O.S., but Cleve. is all over death row.

Maybe it's because I'm knocked up, but this place looks AMAZING. Do you think they'd ship one of those vanilla bacon shakes (sans Bourbon, unfortunately) to NYC?
