South Troy Burger

If you were ever impossibly stoned in Charlottesville in the early 70s you'd like as not find your way to the University Diner to eat a grills-with.  This pre-supposes that you've already eaten your Gusburger with a side of mac salad and a glass of milk.

A grills-with was a glazed donut that had been warmed on the same grill, presumably, where they cooked the hamburgers and the fried eggs and the bacon and the hash brown, then topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Think about that for a moment.

Now imagine yourself impossibly stoned in Troy, NY.  Here, in the present day.  You'd like as not find your way to the Brown Bag to eat a South Troy Burger.

Hamburger, with bacon, with peanut butter, served on a glazed donut.

Dog, can that possibly be right?
As right as rain my friend.
Peanut butter?
The mind reels.

Me?  I don't sing the blues all night long, like I used to do.  But wow.

The mind reels.
