Foods We Love with Cokegoat

Up there in Northern Illinois, there's a suburb of Milwuakee that you might be a tad familiar with.

What's really strange about it is that it has pizza, hot dogs, and even breweries named after it. It's not like here in St. Louis that we talk about St. Charles pizza...
But we do talk about Norco Pie...go fig I guess.

So, up there in Chicago, there's this band called Cokegoat. At the end of the month, you can get their latest release, a split with Barren Heir.
Right now, preorder that stuff HERE.

While you're streaming that goodness, find out how they eat!
1. For me, lunch is usually the meal where I don't have to deal with the Napoleon of Food. So it's my favorite meal. What's your best meal of the day?

I'd have to say dinner. 5 out of 7 days I'm eating breakfast/lunch at work and that ain't no way to enjoy eating.

If I can take my time and savor it with friends or just on the couch with myself, now that's a good meal.

2. What's your most important meal of the day?

Every meal is important. The most important is the meal I'll be eating next. I don't operate very well if I'm hungry.

3. In St. Louis have a local delicacy called the slinger. What's your hometown's delicacy? We prefer this to be an expose...tell us what only the locals know.

I could pick a Chicago style dog or deep dish pizza place but I'm going with L'Patron tacos. 2 blocks from my house and oh so delicious.

4. Breakfast. When I'm not taking down a slinger, it's all about bacon and breakfast potatoes/hash browns in my house. What about you?

My go-to breakfast is onions, kale, eggs, and cheese cooked up in a skillet. Maybe add bacon if I have it. Cook and eat out of the same pan with a spork. Always eat with a spork. That's weekend style. During the week I generally just snack through the morning or get some shit from the cafeteria. I have to be at work at 7 and no way am I trying to cook at 5:30 in the morning.

5. I like my coffee cold and my tea with milk in it. What's your preferred caffeine delivery device?

Coffee is the best. Either black or with heavy cream. Hot in the winter, cold in the summer.

6. I've largely stopped drinking soda, because I could use those calories for beer. Where are you at here?

I'll have a Coke maybe once or twice a week. Goes great with pizza, burger, tacos, etc. I'm not much of a calorie counter, it's just too sweet to be drinking all the time. If I want sweet, I'll have a candy bar. And I'd rather drink pee than diet pop.

7. Best beer/spirit/whatever?
to me is a right place/right time thing. I had an ice cold bottle of High Life after hitting the skate park on a hot and humid day this week and that just hit the damn spot.

8. I'm a Philistine when it comes to pairings. I just drink what I want with my food. What about you?

I don't get too into pairings but I'm not going to have a milk stout with chicken nuggets. Oh wait that might be good...
