‘round Northside

When the work whistle blew I took a walk to find food and entertainment.

A stop at Bughouse and I scored The 40 year Old Virgin and some other stuff. I’m just a few dozen minutes into the flick and I had to look up what a “Cincinnati Bowtie” was. And when I found out the answer, I laughed long, and heartily.

Back to the day, I stopped by a new joint called Melt (can’t find a link, but here’s a bigger shot of the menu board) which touts eclectic cuisine.

UPDATE: MELT Official website

I got the tuna

The potato soup was weird, so much I thought it wasn’t potato soup. But the sandwich was excellent and the house slaw made with ginger and red cabbage was fantastic.

Another high point was the cupcake for dessert. Chocolate caramel with heavenly frosting. Essentially it was rich chocolate cupcake, with a good hint of caramel. I ate every last moist crumb. It was shipped in from Take the Cake.

Okay, now that’s outta my system. Back to the movie, it was hilarious.

    It’s great you found a definition for Cincinnati Bowtie, but I’ve yet to find an explanation for “Alligator Fuckhouse.” Please advise.

    I work for a guy who wears bowties. I would love to send him that definition but…NO!
    I completely love Melt. Their Tuscan Chicken sandwich is fab. Had that last night.
    Bughouse is also awesome.
    And I love that artist, too!
    My god, it’s a lovefest!

    Thank you SO much for pointing us in the direction of the definition of the Cincinnati Bowtie. I’m not sure which def I prefer. And I can’t figure out how I missed the ref in the movie. I just laughed so hard I sneezed.
