Brown's Waffle Week 2012

browns waffle week 2012 obamaWaffle week is back at Brown's in Troy. Monday through Friday this week they'll be featuring a different waffle special in honor of the waffle iron being patented in Troy on August 24, 1869. The waffles are available at lunch and dinner.

This year's lineup is post jump. And, as in past years, it includes some interesting combinations -- while poking fun at both sides of the partisan divide. The week starts off with "The Obamafare."

Yep, Brown's was a sponsor of the Troy > Albany Tour.


Those sound really tasty, and creative!

The Romney one looks a little to rich for me

Waffle Week sounds good in writing but...

The Mitt Romney waffle was an epic fail at 16.99. Hardly any lobster or sausage (they used bacon shavings), lots of regular potato hash, only a little dollop of cranberry butter, the syrup was maple not bacon molasses and the waffle itself was a regular waffle not corn.

Can't say it tasted bad but it was not what I was expecting, especially for the price.

On the bright side, the evening was perfect for sitting on the deck and the Oatmeal Stouts (beef of the day) were great as always.
