Trentonian TV Production Notes: Edelstein eats a bacon sundae at BK


Me: Bacon Dr Pepper? Bacon Coca-Cola?
JW: I don't think you can go wrong with bacon in it.

Me: Bacon Kool-Aid?
JW: I think you just went wrong with bacon in it.

LAWRENCE -- Bacon Kool-Aid? Not so much. Bacon sundae? Oh, yeahhhh!

So yeah, our boy Edelstein called me yesterday to see if I wanted to broadcast another foodie special live on location. Any time, any place, bubba. Last month we went to Killarney's Publick House (1644 Whitehorse Mercerville Road) in Hamilton to have a Pickleback Party with 5 of the hottest women in Mercer County. Today we drove to the Burger King in Lawrence so he could try the new bacon sundae. He Facebooked and Twittered the world to join him. Only Jack Werts of the Lawrenceville School bit on the invitation. Jack isn't one of the hottest women in Mercer County. But we loved that he showed up. Indeed, one is better than none. Also sitting at the table was BK Manager Bob Rose.

I was pleased with the 11-minute production because broadcasting live on location is always a gamble. Some days it works, some days it doesn't. We had perfect streaming soon as I hit the GO LIVE button.

Here are stills and the episode. You'll be surprised at the verdict by Edelstein and Werts.
