Wurstküche @ 04:46 pm

It was a success. The place was busy, but not packed. Given that dark_of_night and I were the only Yeses on the poll by the time the day rolled around, I was pleased by the turnout. A&K&P&J&LB&B&I&J&T&us

After we parked, we met a Japanese cat-spirit. If his spirit-ness doesn't come through well there, check out the close-up. His fat little body sat there, perfectly upright, with his paws delicately placed on the planter, watching the world go by. Dispensing with chronology, we also saw some not-so-little birdies in their nest on our way out.

I had the green chile, cilantro, chicken/turkey sausage, which was very good, but mild, so that it didn't live up to the onion and hot peppers I topped it with. Dark_of_night had the duck/bacon/jalepeno sausage [which was actually my first choice, but we gotta have different sausages in order to effectively share] and it was magnificent. Magnificent. Mustard was there, but it seemed superfluous.
The Belgian-style double-dipped fries were good, but not as good as I remember Benita's Frites being. Alas! Alackaday! That Benite's Frites are no more. The chipotle ketchup was pretty awesome.
To drink, I had the Aventinus doppelbock, and it did not disappoint. Spicy, fruity and (as all the reviews indicate) surprisingly light tasting for a doppelbock.

Buffalo, beef, & pork sausage with chipotle peppers went well with fires in chipotle sauce.

Schneider Edel Weisse was recommended by the bartender, and it was worth it. It arrived in it's own branded pint glass, and I drew "oohs" of envy as I carried to to the table.

Thanks for organizing!

I'll need to go back at some point about a month from now when they start serving classic cocktails.
