But then what if I don't like the color of the new place?

Fiance and I got into a stupid stress fight last night. That's fine, I mean it happens. She's moving her business, I'm dealing with law schools, and we are planning a wedding and honeymoon. But the real tragedy is that I lost my appetite. We were eating burgers from this place that she likes but that I've always been unimpressed by, and they finally nailed the seasonings. I mean nailed them, it was perfect. And I was too annoyed to finish it frown.gif

so i was looking up something online the other day and the info was quickly about how food spoils (or doesn't) and it really bothered me to see some people's complete fear at food and the absolute destruction it will cause. One person said they don't keep raw meat for more than a day and a coworker who is like "mayo can't stay on a sandwich in the fridge for more htan a few hours" and I dunno why but it really bothers me to hear that. Like, people are of the mindset food should be feared rather than just be smart, realize its kind of important to human survival, you'll be ok blah blah blah.

I only have myself to blame, really, but I somehow decided to check a place out during restaurant week. What a shit show. Sorority girls pretending to eat while checking facebook and hacking up phlegm. Couples holding hands across the tables. Our server seemed shocked when we ordered a bottle of wine--which made sense since 90% of the room was sipping water. It was all deeply uncomfortable.

Ironically, I'll be driving 250 miles tomorrow and will most likely end up at another restaurant week dinner in Philly (work-related, not my fault this time).

i think restaurant weeks have replaced valentines day as the most-loathed event for restaurateurs.

people who restaurant week might be lower on the diner totem pole than people who brunch

People that eat brunch aren't loathed because they're eating brunch. They're loathsome solely because i can't get drunk on Saturday night.

actually, i think if you talk to most restaurateurs (responsible restaurateurs, sit down ksilk), you'll find a deep affection for brunch, if not for brunch-goers. That's an extra turn that they don't usually get, and given the ingredients used, usually a very profitable one.

Hey, I'm no restaurateur, i'm just the lowly shlub that has to turn leftovers into frittata. And with any luck, I won't even be that much longer.

I loathe them because of the awful vibe one gets when they sit next to a group of 8 "doing brunch" in their sweatpants

You don't get to drink on Saturdays because you don't know the difference between "who" and "that."

Like sweatpant sweatpants or fancy designer sweatpants with droopy crotches? I've been lurking on SW trying to master the distinction.

Whew, just managed to get my work-related dinner switched to a non-restaurant-week place. Will wear my fancy sweatpants.
