There was once a fine restaurant
on 39th between Chestnut
. It was called Troy's
. They sold beer to anyone
. One could get carded
, however this usually took a combination of a babyface and stupidity
Troy's had a wonderful after-heavy-drinking
menu, was always open, and even had the owner's relatives playing very high-quality greek music (no not *that* kind, sicko
) on occasion.
Well, they had a menu item called an eggel
. Yes, it was made of.....an egg
and a bagel
. Very good. This thing was the greasiest egg you ever saw. It blended with the booze
and made your stomach
feel much better.
I heard that they closed Troy's
due to liquor
law violations. That's a shame. I doubt if college students in the area have a similar venue
in latter-day times. Bummer.
