The second, maybe superior, burger in Newcastle was found at the Fat Hippo. Good name. The burger menu here was more extensive than ARLO, but the menu was almost entirely burgers. We had jalapeño poppers and something else (mustn’t have been as good) with bloody mary dipping sauce, and then “Stinky Pete” burgers. The waiter warned us they would come pink in the middle, which is as they should be, but it was odd that it was more of a notification than anything else.
There were also onion rings (because, um, onion rings!), and more chunky home fries made with the skin on (thank you, potato deities).
I had a Blue Moon and boy had a Jeremiah Weed sour mash, which was so good that I had to order one for myself.
Jeremiah Weed glasses make me want to drink out of a straw on my (nonexistent) porch. Good stuff.
And now, for the token cute animal picture…
Roger! My sister’s no-longer-a-kitten. He’s a good’un.
