Captain Jack Sparrow Jason Vines up there jumped up on stage, we caught him enjoying what appears to be the Detroit automaker holiday party treat of choice — the Bob Lutz tenderloin "hamburger" — or as we've come to call it, the "loin-burger." When not downing steaming hot loin-meat last night at the Chrysler Auto Press holiday party, we were busy listening intently to Chrysler Group chief exec Tom LaSorda coming up with explanations for the "order bank" of over 100,000 cars awaiting dealers to adopt them and denying his job's in jeopardy. When not doing that — which frankly was the majority of the evening — we were taking pictures and drinking copious amounts of refreshments to go along with the loin-meat from earlier. And although we may not have enjoyed the french fries as much as AutoWeek's Bob Gritzinger, we did enjoy watching Bob enjoy them. And plus, hey, there were dessert shots and cupcakes, and that's just simply adorable. Full commentary-laden gallery below.
