COLUMBUS, Ohio - The White Castle hamburger chain is sipping on the idea of selling alcoholic beverages at its restaurants. The 90-year-old company is testing beer and wine sales at a location in Lafayette, Ind., that combines a traditional White Castle burger joint with a Blaze Modern BBQ, a new restaurant concept also being tried out. In other cities, Columbus, Ohio-based White Castle is testing an Asian food concept and a restaurant that serves grilled sandwiches.

White Castle burgers were good after a night of drinking to sop up the excess.

You're not just whistlin' Dixie! Unfortunately, we don't have any WC down here in my current neck of the woods. I was in Evansville, IN for a meeting a couple of years ago. After a night of adult beverages, several of us called a cab to take us through the WC drive-through. We ended up devouring two suitcases of burgers. Darn fine intoxicated eating they are. I don't know what made me feel worst the next morning: overindulging on alcohol or WC?

Probably mini sampler sizes to go with their miniburgers.

(How many White Castle Hamburgers does it take to fil up a normal American Man?)

White Castle Blues - The Smithereens

Saturday night and it’s gettin’ late
I’m gettin’ hungry, I just can’t wait
Not just any kind of burger will do
I’m being hit by those
White Castle blues
White Castle blues

I think I’ll get some crisp onion rings
To compliment 10 of those little square things
An orange soda or a milkshake will do
I’m being hit by those
White Castle blues
White Castle blues

I was first introduced to those bastards by Duke
On a hot summer night when we went out to cruise
But memories such as Bobbo and puke
Are just part of the saga of
White Castle blues
White Castle blues
Hey!

Oh when I worked midnights for the campus police, Harold’s satisfied many late-night cravings. Reminded me of Henderson’s Chicken in Dallas (also closed now).

As a former culinary professional that has worked in fine dining establishments (and for Uncle Sam, as well)... I heartily approve of this. Beer and sliders.

I would do that for supper if one was a few states closer, and I hadn't started making chicken, roasted corn and tortilla soup from scratch.

Ah geez! Why not! White Castle's main business is catering to the late night drunk! (Been there! Done that!) Can't say I've ever eaten White Castle's sober...or, in the daylight. ;)

I don’t. I like the cheese sticks and they never seem to make them right (I don’t reject them. they just make um over and over again)

Oh yeah. Just what we need. We don't have enough videos of young kids getting into late-night fights in fast food restaurants yet.

I’ve been to that one! only it was weed that was offered.

I do last mile expedited freight. Basically pickup at the air port or terminal and run it out to it’s destination. I visit a lot of white castles and other food joints.

Blaine (65 and 10) is closest to home. They are extremely slow.

Considering where I’ve seen most White Castles located... they might consider selling ammo rather than booz.

My late night burger of choice was at the Waffle House, along with the shoestring fries.”

George Webb’s for me!

I have to wonder.. how will this affect their work force? I’d bet many are way to young to sell beer and wine.

I thought White Castle was where people went AFTER they were intoxicated. Not to get intoxicated.

We always used to end up there at 4 AM after a night of drinking anyways, so why not?
