Ben's Chili Bowl
Before the Pogues show at 9:30, my cousin and I went to DC institution, Ben's Chili Bowl. Opened in 1958, it's your classic chili hot dog and burger joint. Supposedly, Bill Cosby proposed to his wife there. Sue and I ordered their specialty, the Chili Half-Smoke, a half smoke dog with onions, mustard, and chili - delicious!
We also got a heaping order of chesse fries- yum. The jukebox played great old school joints by Run D.M.C., James Brown, and Jackson 5, and the guys behind the counter clearly have been enjoying their own food. I need to get back to try their milkshakes sometime.
