“I knew that delicious Texas bacon cheesesteak melt was just a few feet away, so I took spatula in hand and made it happen.”
Ever had the unfortunate experience of going to sleep drunk and hungry after wandering the streets, hopelessly craving a late-night sandwich and tugging at the locked doors of your favorite fast food joints and diners? It’s one of the saddest states a human can find themselves in; bewildered and nutritionally underprepared for the inevitable headache and dehydration that lay ahead.
But not everyone accepts defeat so easily in those crucial post-drinking hours. Some people, like Alex Bowen, are so determined to get their Fourthmeal proxy that they cook it themselves. After a night of boozing with buddies early Thursday morning, ABC News reported, Bowen stepped into a South Carolina looking for a Texas bacon cheesesteak melt and instead found an empty restaurant and sleeping staff.
“I had a few vodka and Sprites, headed to the Waffle House. When I got there, no one in sight, I waited about ten minutes, went outside to look around. Came back in to check to see if anyone came—no one,” Bowen told MUNCHIES via Messenger. Not discouraged and still craving a late-night sandwich, the former Army combat medic took matters into his own hands.
We’ve all been there….you want those late night lit eats but the staff at your late night spot has different plans for you. This hero simply decided he wouldn’t be stopped of his goal, and for that I salute him.
