Porktoberfest Day 13: Wishing Well

The Wishing Well is a neighborhood bar/restaurant around the corner from my house.  Two age-old buddies own it and they're constantly rotating specials and interesting foodstuffs.  Chef Carmen Capello has put his name out there in the Philly dining scene for his notorious Shame Burger- with egg, scrapple and American cheese.

There is of course a Wall of Shame for those that completely finish 2 double SHAME Burgers each with 2 8oz all beef patties, 2 pieces of scrapple, 4 slices of American cheese, 2 fried eggs, 2 orders of hand cut fries & 2 pints of beer with no bathroom breaks in 45 minutes.  It's $30 but if you complete the task its paid for and you get a $25 Gift Certificate to Wishing Well.

So back my task- Porktoberfest. I stopped in yesterday to say hi to the guys and told chef about my P-fest mission.  He said he had just made some scrapple.  I had already featured scrapple on the Jose Pistolas Cheesesteak and I am not allowed to repeat. But this was too enticing.  I paired it with a Darkhorse Boffo Brown.  And that was my dinner. Hope mom's not readin'.

  1. I can do the Shame thingey, no problem. My question is can I only drink 2 pints?
