Neighborhood dive Billy Goat Tavern has decided to get in on all the kinda-sorta-filibuster fun by dishing out a green eggs and ham special commemorating Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s recent dramatic reading of Dr. Seuss.
The politically inspired repast includes mint-colored eggs, hash browns, grilled ham and your choice of toast (white or wheat) for $4.75.
Billy Goat (500 New Jersey Ave. NW) is serving the hearty-har-har breakfast until noon Thursday.
When we strode into the Capitol Hill watering hole, the place was mostly empty, save for a few office drones nursing their late morning coffees. “Our first order!” cooed the grill cook when we placed our order for the fabled foodstuffs.
The meal was good; the generous plate featured fluffy eggs scrambled with bits of savory ham, onion-laced hash browns and a bonus piece of salty, griddle-seared swine.
One suggestion: maybe next time cap the whole thing off with a slice of creamy American (or queso fresco?) to commemorate the cheesiness of Cruz using public access television to snooker little ones into hearing his favorite bedtime book.
