If you live in the northeast you have probably heard of Quaker Steak & Lube. If not Quaker Steak is a restaurant that is mainly known for their wings. They have a bunch of different wing sauce flavors and you can even buy their wing sauce in grocery stores. The first time I went to Quaker Steak was when I was in high school. Everyone talked about their wing night, where you get unlimited wings in any flavor you want. After that first time my friends and I went there A LOT! Their wings are awesome!
As most of you know I lifecast on Justin.tv. It is a great way to network and meet new people. Through Justin.tv I met a guy named Chris and his brother. They both also lifecast. Chris goes to Virginia Tech, but is originally from Akron, Ohio. He is home for the holiday so last Friday Ashley, her sister amber, and I met up with him. We decided to meet half way and that was in Sharon, PA. We of course decided on Quaker Steak & Lube as the place to meet up.
We left on a Friday afternoon and it had to be one of the worst days to go! It was frigid cold and snowing! I rarely drive, so an hour driving is kind of annoying to me, but we got there alright. The original Quaker Steak is sort of in the middle of nowhere! Like you drive into Sharon, which is like an old run down town and it is just there.
Anyways meeting Chris was really cool. It is weird meeting people you have met online because it does not really feel like you are just meeting them. It feels like you have known them for a long time. I felt the same way when I met John Chow, you can just go into conversation, and there is no weird silence or insecurity. For lunch I had some Louisiana Licker flavored wings, which have to be one of my favorites. Chris also got wings, Ashley got chicken fingers, and Amber got a salad. We all had a great time and hopefully Chris can stop down on his way back to school.
