    This probably isn't contest-worthy, but it was taken yesterday and I had to share it. A bacon-wrapped, cheese-injected Bratwurst - In Austria! Now I've seen it all. If this were served in Germany, someone would beat the cook to death with their nordic walking sticks. I applaud Austria, and especially the Wildschonau region of Tyrol, and their willingness to cook outside of the bland-as-all-shit Germanic gastronomy box.

    Unfortunately, I ordered the f'ing schnitzel, but did steal a few bites from my Frau.

    This contest got me tossed out of Rancho Liborio today. I was driving down East Colfax looking for some environmental-type shots when I remembered this contest. Since I never enter these things, I thought I would walk around inside Rancho Liborio and see if anything caught my interest, because with the 35L I thought I might do something interesting with a razor-thin DoF. I took a test picture of some snacks, then wandered around. I immediately noticed 3 guys following me around but they would look away whenever I glanced at them. I decided to be as enigmatic as possible, just for laughs, and walked around in circles while they tailed me.

    Anyway, after I got bored with that I headed over to the produce department to look for a shot and when I got ready to take a photo of some radishes the manager and the other dudes surrounded me and told me I couldn't take photos in their store.

    So, I got nothing. Well, except for this shot of cheese doodles I used to set my manual settings. . . .

    As an aside, I'm a little surprised that "nudes" hasn't come up as a MPC topic yet.

    #1: Anyone who knows Boston's North End is probably salivating just seeing the street sign. If you like Italian food and come to Boston, you have to visit this street. So a little play on the food topic but all I can think of is food when someone says Hanover St.

    Thanks for this. I love Boston and particularly wandering the North End looking for good food... There's a pizza joint, Ernesto's Pizza, on Salem St where the Italian owner will sit outside and gawk/flirt with all the girls and generally just be a crude old man - fairly entertaining to watch and eat some good pizza. The traditional Italian food is stellar, but there also used to be a sweet raw vegan place called Grezzo that made some amazingly tasty food (and although I am veggie, I don't usually dig the raw scene; it really was ridiculously good). The pastry shops are killer too, Mike's, Modern, etc. So good.

    Totally forgot about this contest when I took these earlier today. Was just playing around with my new lens. Not exactly great pics, maybe I'll get something else tomorrow.

    The above is a pastrami and cheese. The below photo is a kielbasa and cheese, pic taken by Kidwoo, sandwich made (and held) by me.

    The farts started around midnight and just stopped about two hours ago.


    I can order "pastrami or keilbasa with cheese" anywhere and it doesn't come with fries, coleslaw and tater salad. There's gotta be a better name for that.

    I ended up making this MPC shorter than normal. Not sure what I was thinking. I was however hoping to get a new one up by this weekend. Let's go one more day and start voting Wed-Fri. That sound good?
