Once upon a time we held a contest. If you liked us on Facebook you were entered in the drawing, and if we drew your name from the hat you would win the opportunity to eat with us. “The Contest”, as it came to be known, was one of the first ideas we came up with to help popularize 88 Nights. People liked us. We held the drawing. Tristan Loughlin won. That was on Halloween 2011.
Fast forward many months later, and we finally worked out the logistics of having Tristan eat with us. There were only a couple of problems. In the time since Tristan won, we had already been joined by guests Eric, Stefanie, and Keith (twice). Also, Tristan showed up on the night we had to eat burrito chicharron which was fatty and foul. It really makes you wonder what he really won. In fact, the only clear winner is Cinco de Mayo who sold five disgusting burritos instead of just four.
Tonight’s menu: the number 67 – burrito chicharron.
Those of you who pay attention to every little detail of 88 Nights will find a seeming inconsistency in tonight’s episode. During the intro segment, Dave shows a green tamale on his plate and then a red tamale on the plate of the person to his right. I, Chaz, was the person on his right, and yet during the episode I am clearly shown eating a green tamale.
Not busted! I was extra hungry and went back for a second tamale. In fact, it is your anal-retentive quest to find flaws in tonight’s episode that has been busted!
Tonight’s menu: the number 52 – tamale beef, pork or chicken.
