    food tastes late night after you have been out at a party, drinking or smoking some buds?

    doesn't matter whether you are in high school, college, a young adult or older.

    whether you stop at a diner, pizza place, order in, etc...yummmmmmmmmmmmm

    Yuppers.

    Do intoxicants actually stimulate the taste/smell senses or is it just all in the bud/Bud?

    i don't know, but i guess since drugs and alcohol heighten the senses in a certain way it has something to do with it.

    obviously, everyone talk about "the munchies"...but it is even more pronounced late night, after a party etc.

    it is also interesting the kinds of food that tend to be eaten...pizza, omelettes, burgers, fries...pancakes...it would be interesting to do some kind of study...:biggrin1:

    I informally conducted that study during college on weekends. :biggrin1:

    I concluded simple pepperoni and cheese pizza went down best. Combo pies were too heavy for me. Other favs included those massive omlettes available at late pm/early am breakfast eateries.

    Something about cheese, I reckon.

    agreed...cheese is always awesome...a couple of slices of pizza, or a big omelette always hit the spot...even a toasted bagel with cream cheese as well...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    ah the good old days... i still do it once in awhile, but now that me and my friends are older, we jsut don't have the occasions as much anymore

    :smile:

    That and the fact that it now takes me three days of concerted effort to jog off the aftereffects of a late night cheese binge rather than one day when I was age 20.

    i think that is the LA type of thing...east coast was always "steak and eggs"

    though i do love waffles! yum

    IHOP used to be a good late night stop.

    It always seems to be comfort food that goes down well on those nights. In high school we'd always stop for a patty-melt at Denny's. The thought of one of those turns my stomach now.

    These days here in Turkey, everyone goes to these little soup kitchens at the end of a party night. Delicious lentil soup and warm bread and sweet tea. Yum..

    Have to disagree, Randy.
    Several restaurants offer Chicken and Waffles in NYC. Most are just OK, but I do recommend Cafe Shane in BK off Washington, and would be willing to take you sometime post smoke. :09: :05:

    I wish I smoked :(

    i think alcohol generally deadens the tongues taste buds and food re-awakens them. i have no scientific proof and am probably wrong, but when i drink a fair bit of beer my tongue generally goes very numb and i have to eat something.

    Pot doesn't make me want to eat unless I'm already hungry. I'm not usually a "snacker", won't munch between meals, but if it's mealtime, I'll do it up.

    When I drink, it's usually at night, and I need to eat when I drink or I get indigestion.
