10/3/11 The prequel to this weeks Pounder of the week

This is my blog dedicated to my favorite serving size of my guilty pleasure. Each week I will detail the treats that I enjoy while partaking in my favorite past time, trivia. Last week I had the pleasure of sampling Dorko's famous kitchen sauce wings. They are basically hot wings with what ever the cook decides to cook them in so every night its a surprize but it is always delicious. The pounder that I decided to focus my efforts on the Busch pounder. A Pounder for all of you who don't know is another name for a 16 oz beer. The Busch pounder paired very nicely with the wings. It had a nice cooling effect and rolled effortlessly down my throat and into my anxiously awaiting belly. It had a smooth flavor, good color and a very pleasing taste. Overall I would rate it a B+ mainly for it being my first pounder of the week rating and I never start out with a perfect rating for fear that something better would come along. All in all the night was a huge success with delicious food, great beer and a win for the RZA (our trivia team name). I will be writing an update sooner after each visit to Dorko's hopefully sometime tomorrow. Thanks for reading and always drink responsibly.
