Quinn From Ypsilanti

Ypsilanti. That's in Michigan, near Ann Arbor. None of us have ever been there, but we had Quinn and his family including mom, dad, and the "grand-cat" in for dinner the other night. Apparently the road from Ypsilanti leads directly to Schnack. The grand-cat had to stay in the car, but everyone else came in and had an all-you-can-eat-and-drink Schnack FEST!

Whenever we do these "all you can" events, we open up the menu vaults and more or less cook anything in our "catalog" of good eats. A lot of our regulars use this method to get some of their favorite specials cooked to order. Sometimes we are known for even giving out a few of our secrets.

With Quinn and his family it seems the secrets flowed both ways. Let's be clear -- Brooklyn, without a doubt, got the better half of the deal. What did we get? YAM Fries with a special sauce. Horseradish and something like Schnack Sauce. That was easy to whip up, and it was very tasty. We also got leads on some good milkshake ideas for the fall and spring. We already do chocolate and banana. How about vanilla ice cream, peanut butter and banana? Or strawberry and peanut butter. We have yet to make these but we will keep you posted.

Thanks Quinn, and please send a big Meow to the Grand-Cat.
