Late-nite breakfast

    Inspired by a conversation I was just having with another board member, whatever happened to place you could go, post-bar, and gets some eggs and bacon?
    Here in Cincinnati, your choices are Waffle House and... nothing. In Cleveland, where he is, there are no Waffle Houses, and Denny's/Perkins are few and far between.
    So, I guess that leaves the mom-and-pop-owned dives that remain open late, but they too are scarce.

    So, SportsJournalists.commers and purveyors of drunken late-nite breakfasts from coast to coast, where do you get your eggs on at 1 a.m.?

    If strictly eggs ... I go to Chez F_B, where I always have a dozen loaded. If I ever played Egg Roulette, count on a smooth 0-of-12 from moi.

    When I was younger and eating late-night breakfasts, it was Waffle House. Now I'm old, go home right after work and I live five hours from the closest Waffle House.

    Life isn't fair.

    There was one place in Alabama we went a few times, a local diner. Can't remember the name, but it was affectionately known as Choke and Puke. It was exactly what you'd expect from a local late-night diner in Alabama.

    Best thing about the place was the sightseeing. Food was horrible. Coffee was like motor oil.

    Red Arrow.

    Voted one of the top ten diners in the country.

    They serve it ALL around the clock. It's fucking great.

    It's always packed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights after the bars let out, so I try to leave the bars a little early so I can get a seat and eat and get out.

    I sometimes wondered, in my youth, who first thought it was a good idea to get a belly full of booze and then throw three eggs on top of it. A burger, I could understand. Pizza, sure ... although pizza is not so good coming back up. A beef and bean burrito, even. But eggs ... why eggs?

    I never got that either. I always used to go to Denny's and got sick off the Moons Over My Hammy a couple times.

    Topping a buzz with IHOP's version of Moons Over My Hammy right now. Eggs are a comforting food, and drunks gravitate to it. It's way less upsetting than burgers or burritos.

    Is the IHOP version of MOMH any good?

    Damn all of you IHOP bastards. I've never been to an IHOP or even SEEN one before, yet I still get all the commercials.

    It's OK. Kind of hard to fuck up a ham egg and cheese sandwich. A touch bigger than Denny's, ingredients are the same. Fries aren't bad. Normally I'd get pancackes, but they don't travel well and I didn't want to waste good buzz waiting for a blueberry tall stack.
