The Northwest has hatched a pretty amazing microcosm of foodie-ism … in Seattle, we have microbrews, locally sourced cupcakes and ice cream, fair trade chocolate made from the bean, vegan donuts … well you get the picture.
So, last night I had a brainstorm to try making a “root beer” float with my favorite “ice cream”, Oregon’s own Coconut Bliss (from Eugene) and Deschutes Obsidian Stout (from Bend).
It was f***ing awful. Just don’t do this. It was an extremely poorly thought out idea. Some things in the Northwest just need to be enjoyed separately.
