Triple Atomic Wings Now Available to the Lehigh Valley

Quaker Steak and Lube’s Triple Atomic Challenge has always been one of our favorite challenges, as the wings are both hot and tasty. Unfortunately, they also are available only in more remote areas of Pennsylvania, Ohio, NJ, and other states, so travel was always required. We’re glad to announce that Quaker Steak has opened in Philipsburg, NJ. So, if you haven’t checked it out, get out there and get on their “Wall of Flame.”

This Valentine’s Day, Enjoying the Heat Together

Steven King once commented in one of his novels, “every couple needs a differing amount of time to reach marital telepathy.  Once that is accomplished, the power of the duo becomes the power of one.” Russ and I frequently blog about how pepper competitions contribute to the success of our relationship.  Working together as a team and healthy competition are essential for a powerful romantic relationship.  After all, what could be hotter than partnering with your spouse or partner to kick butt?…And what is better than besting your significant other every once in a while and showing your dominance?  All told, being the Queen or the King of your domain, and viewing your significant other as your complementary Queen or King is a total rush;  success is always sexy. Routinely engaging this way, moreover, couples develop positive habits together.  This leads to so-called marital “telepathy,” that is, joint growth which leads couples to think and respond alike.  (We often see this with parents who answer their children similarly.  All too often, however, their telepathy ends with the graduation of children out of the household.  These parents have maintained no other parallel bond between them, and they find themselves eventually as empty-nesters with little in common.)

So, I expound this way to tell a funny story. This Valentine’s Day, I too hotfound the perfect card for RapidFire Russ — it even plays music! I was so proud.

Russ and I exchanged Valentine’s Day cards and presents; he couldn’t wait to give me his card….too hot

The moral of the story is whether it’s spicy food, racquetball, stamp-collecting, or raising baby alligators…whatever your interests are…make sure you maintain common pleasurable ground with your spouse or partner.  It makes buying cards much easier. ;-D Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!  

Wingbowl 2015 — Freak….’n Awesome!

Wingbowl 2015 was a wicked good time.  Much like Mardi Gras in NO or St. Paddy’s in Ireland, it is a party to be reckoned with!wingbowl 6  In the true fashion of the Fire-Eaters, moreover, we ate wings (of  course), watched Mick Foley, WWE star, cheat (it was meant to be funny) and get kicked out (he tried… props for that!), drank a full bottle of hot sauce on a dare, met some of the Wingettes, got flashed,  made money, got to watch Sloth puke on slo-mo over and over repeatedly (maybe you shouldn’t have been such a snot, dude,  at Green Lane!)  and generally had an insanely good time.  Props to Molly Schuyler (that is one bad-a#$ 013114_Schuyler-Eating_600beotch!) and, of course, to the winner, Patrick Bertolletti, at 444 wings in 30 minutes, edging out Schulyer with 440.  Also, a big shout out to our new friends, Nekesia and her husband, Missy, Kelly (the baddest Wingette of the bunch) and all the other awesome people we met!  #Foodporn @fire-eaters1 #fireeaters

A Farewell to A-Treat, Fire-Eaters’ Style

Dear A-Treat,

We’ll miss you a lot.  You made everything great — from cooling down our Jolokia Habanero Chips, to being an integral part of our Rootbeer float, to mixing and mingling to make an awesome grapefruit Pavlova. Although we tossed you aside at times, we did recycle where available.  We hope you’ll come back to visit us soon, like Twinkies.

With love and straws,

The Fire-Eaters

Kempton Pepper Jam is ROLLIN’ and We’re Gonna Be Part of It!

If you missed the Kempton Pepper Jam last year, you missed a GREAT event. Tons of vendors, pepper eating contests, in a word, AWESOME!  The Bowers Festival is great, but this is the newest and coolest Pepper Jam in Pennsylvania!

Craving Smokehouse BBQ? We Got a Place for You

If you’re looking for an excellent smokehouse meal, you have to visit Point Phillips Hotel (north of Bath, PA).  Our  favorites were the ribs, the BBQ burned brisket ends, smoked wings (not spicy, but hot, fresh and tasty..and try all of the sides) and coleslaw. Plus, amazing service.  Now, we also tried the brisket, the brat, the pulled pork, and the desserts, which we wouldn’t go back for.

All in all, a full-on solid eating experience….the good stuff will make you eat until you hate yourself (a nod to any Louie #foodporn #fireeaters
