today. This Indianapolis institution is a very special place - tucked away of the main streets, old, seedy, and the provider of the best cheeseburger I have ever had. The photos may help you to better understand if you have never checked out this treasure spot.
It is located on the corner of shady and whathehell and is adorned with a few bullet holes. Workingman's Friend let's you know right up to adjust your expectations if you have any walking in the door.
WF is typically packed at lunch time, so we decided to go late. It was in fact not packed, perhaps also due to the snow that fell all day on Naptown. Good news was that we found a seat right away and were greeted by our kind server, Amy, in a timely fashion. The only decision I needed to make was Double with or without the middle bun. Amy suggested without the bun with a side of beer battered onion rings...and so it was.
Yep. It tasted as good as it looks. Move over Steak-n-Shake...move over! When I wasn't busy shoveling in this delight or wiping my face and hands with a napkin, there was time to enjoy a little Rod Stewart from the Jukebox, take in our surroundings, and admire the vintage fresh-air machine. Catching up with Joel was also of course a very nice part of this lunch. He then told me that he is "addicted" to my blog. Joel quickly topped the double cheeseburger that he so kindly bought for me.
Pretty awesome lunch for Tuesday, 1.11.11.
Super sleepy GOOD BOY! He went to daycare today and walked straight in the door and plopped on the couch. He got up just to eat his dinner and do his business outside. He is running in his sleep next to me right now. Erin has shut her door to minimize distractions due to her new, super-early mornings and so my boy is back in bed with me.
