PORKTOBERFEST DAY 6: Asparagus Under the Guise

I grew up in a fairly strict household.
No arms on the table.
No saying "what?"
We weren't even allowed to refer to my mother as "She" in the 3rd person even if it was grammatically correct.
"Mother is going to Hennings. Mother wanted to pick up some corn on the cob for dinner."

I was also never allowed to say "I hate..."  I was instructed to say "I don't care for that."
Well, my I don't care for that list was pretty long and involved many of the usual childhood dislikes.

Like asparagus.  The award for eating asparagus at Grandmom Pryors house was Sara Lee cupcakes, so I managed to get it down.

I now appreciate the branched green a bit more than I did back then, but I still don't love it.  I actually have a fondness for white asparagus, but you don't see that around as much.

So now that the prelude's over- I had serrano ham wrapped asparagus at the Bistro on Bridge in Phoenixville last night.  It's a bit of an extension on the  "Everything is better with bacon" philosophy.
Appetizers are half price from 5 till 7. So 6 pieces were $3.50.

They have some craft on tap including Ommegang Hennepin and Founders Centennial IPA.
You can get a few big bottles as well- like Sly Fox Christmas Ale vintage 09 and Sly Fox Black Raspberry Reserve.

I have a firkin at Standard Tap tonight. I am sure there will be some good eats. Come by if you can.
