Hell Nights - Smiddys 31st Bday

So last night we decided to go to the East Coast Grill for Hell Night/Smiddys 31st bday. We started off the night with a round of Russian Roulette Style Deviled Egg (2 – 8 Bombs). Smiddy was the unlucky bastard to get the super hot egg.

Chrissy ordered the Wings of Ass Destruction (7 Bombs) plus the Pasta from Hell (9 Bombs)(Please Take Us Seriously When We Say DO NOT Order This Dish). Welchie ordered up the Masala Rubbed & Spit Roasted ½ Chicken (3 Bombs). Smiddy ordered the Pampas Style Grilled 16 oz Sirloin with Cherio Chimichurri (5 Bombs). Jeffrey and I both ordered the Chipotle Braised Pork Shank with Salsa Fuego (4 Bombs).

I sampled everything but Welchie’s chicken. The best thing was the steak. It was so good that Jeffrey started chatting up the grill guy and scored us a free steak. The pork was alright but I wouldn’t order it again. Then there were the wings. At first you take a few bites, and think “After them hot deviled eggs this is pussy shit (at least that’s what I thought)”, THEN IT HITS YOU! Your lips get numb and then the burn starts. Needless to say I only had one wing. Lastly, Chrissy’s Pasta from Hell came out. I think calling it Pasta from Hell is being nice actually. It could be called “This Shit Will Burn Your Lips, Your Mouth, Your Soul, and Lastly Your Ass Hole” because that is exactly what it did. Chrissy took a first bite, then a quick second bite and everyone at the table started nodding that maybe it isn’t so hot. But when he took that third bite it was all over! The sweat started and the waters couldn’t come fast enough. After eating some of Jeffrey’s steak, I decided I had to try the Pasta from Hell. BAD IDEA… If you can imagine the hottest thing you have ever ate then multiply it by 100 then all of a sudden someone sticks a red hot poker in your mouth - that is probably half as hot as that pasta was.

The only thing that comes to mind when talking about this Pasta From Hell is this scene in Armageddon(instead of an asteroid its a plate of pasta):

Oscar: Ok, Mr. Truman, let's say that we actually do land on this. What's it gonna be like up there?

Truman: 200 degrees in the sunlight, minus 200 in the shade, canyons of razor-sharp rock, unpredictable gravitational conditions, unexpected eruptions, things like that.

Oscar: Okay, so the scariest environment imaginable. Thanks. That's all you gotta say, scariest environment imaginable

That little quote sums up my whole feeling on the Pasta From Hell.
