Curt's Place

I was first introduced to the fried fare at Curt's Place many years ago when a friend informed me that they had something called fried mashed potatoes.  They were factory made mashed potato balls with a breading that were deep fried.  They were awesome.  Curt's doesn't have them any more, but I found myself passing the place recently and decided to check it out.

The decor/ambiance is...well....gas station-like.

After seeing a preview of an order of fries on some tables, I knew $1.92 was kinda steep regardless of how good they may be.

Standard, factory-made 1/2 Ore-Ida style fries.  Meh.

A decent amount, but not for almost 2 bucks.  5 out of 10.  Their burgers are good, tho.

Grunion and Z vs. Mardi Gras/Parents

Meanwhile, on a balcony overlooking the Mardi Gras parade...

Z:  I don't know, dude.  It looks REALLY dangerous over there.

GRUNION:  What are you talking about?  There's no way we could fit through these bars!  Believe me, I've tried.

Z:  Is he lying to me, giant fat man?
GIBBY:  No, he's not lying to-wait, what did you call me?

GRUNION:  Come on, man.  Who are you gonna trust, the fun killers or me?

Z:  You have a point.  Okay, let me check it out. Whoa!  This is cool!

Z:  Hey Grunion, wanna start going nuts to make the fun killers nervous?
GRUNION:  Good idea! Start running around and screaming.

Victory: Grunion and Z

Snow Day/A Beautiful Winter Wonderland

GRUNION:  Dad!  Look at all that snow!

GRUNION:  Hey, there's a dog out there squatting!

GRUNION:  Whoa!  He's doing his potty time in the snow.

GRUNION:'s steaming...

GRUNION:  So.......can I do my potty time in the snow?
