A small wager

There’s something about a playoff game that puts a man in a gambling mood. If I were the mayor of Chicago I might be putting some food on the line:

In addition to Da Coach’s pork chops, the Chicago smorgasbord includes: Gibsons’ steaks; Jays potato chips; Gino’s East pizza; Garrett’s popcorn; Italian beef from Buona Beef; Goose Island Brewing Co. pop and beer; La Preferida nachos; Vienna Beef hot dogs and sausages and stuffed pretzels from Kim and Scott’s.

Nickels wagered smoked salmon, cheese, Pike Place ale, Washington wine, chocolates and, what else, two pounds of Starbucks coffee.

As it is, I’ve wagered the Seattle Metroblog captain a liter of our fine Lake Michigan water against that brakish sea water they have to live with. Heck, if they win I’ll throw in an improv group (we’ve got plenty extra) and if we win I think I’d want one of those fish-throwing guys in return.

    Is Garretts really that good? It is only popcorn after all. I don’t understand the lines out the door for popcorn.

    I’d say, yes — yes, it is that good. I’ve eaten a lot of caramel popcorn in my day, and theirs is among the best. And I’ve never liked cheese popcorn until I tried Garrett’s. And put the two together… OMG the mix is such a sweet, greasy delicious treat. Great, now I’m hungry. Thanks a lot.
