I can't describe how tempting that looks- would somebody like to mail me one?
Wow, that looks so good... I just sent my husband out to get mcds and I'm so disappointed that it's not Angelos.
Someone has to go there and shoot a pic of some fries and gravy!
I'm way ahead of you, Gillian.http://www.flintexpats.com/2007/11/angelos.html
Damn, Gordie, sorry! But now that I see the pic, I'm thinking now what I used to get was hash browns with gravy ... does that sound familiar? And I don't mean the hash browns you get out here with chunks of potato, I'm talking shredded potato. Or am I experiencing a faulty memory?
move over pavlov, your dogs ain't got NUTHIN' on angelo's! how can anything that tastes that great be bad for you? do not buy into all that tofu, roughage garbage, just don't. look, Willy Nelson is what? something like 800yrs old, right? he starts off every morning having 4 eggs fried in butter, fried minute steak, and hashbrowns, fried in butter also, and probably a blunt that would lay low the most diehard Rasta in Kingston. cholesterol? fergitaboutit. I'm packing my River Rats t-shirt, my leathers and dingos and headin' to the Old Man's house this weekend for a coney island orgy...and the Tums stays here,'cause I want every bubble to be relished,(no pun intended).
These days, I'd have to swallow a fistful of ZANTAC before even coming near the place! I miss the "gut of my youth" that allowed for me to enjoy coney islands and greasy soft shell Tacos at 2AM from the place that was on Detroit St in the early '70s.
Out of all the jocks who worked WTAC Av had the greatest set of pipes! He was a great program director too. Van also had the great honor of playing"Th-th-that'sall folks!" Just before turning off the transmitter. We were doing great with our oldies format and acquired a large audience when the owners decided to sell out to some religious outfit in "89" and using the call letters WTAC for their new (praise the lord) format; WE TEACH ABOUT CHRIST (yall). I wish Van was back on the air again, even if it's only part time. Tom Crown
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
