Somebody thinks that it is: Burgers I have also heard that Rosamundes Tuesday Hamburger day is the best in the city.

I have a pretty big suprise for anyone brave enough to meet me over the course of the next week.

It will be exciting! I promise you!

I'm looking forward to meeting you guys, I've PM'ed the three of you who seemed interested in getting together with my phone number.

Make sure it's black.

Oh and since you're a movie buff, you might consider the Foreign Cinema as a potential restaurant.

Decided against taking any formalwear or pimp suits. I'm travelling light and nasty. Mobile Agile Hostile. One carry-on bag and one chip on my shoulder too big to be carry-on.

Now, I need someone in SF to leave me a briefcase under a dumpster which contains, 50k in mixed nonsequential bills - nothing larger than $100, A Cold Steel "Recon Scout" fixed blade, Two H&K USP Compacts in 40S&W, full clips with a loaded extra for each (speer gold dot please), and Forbus HK1RP paddle holsters.

Any volunteers?

Two H&K's? What, in case you spill your decaf mocha latte on one? Give me a Glock 23 any day.

I'm a John Woo "two gun" type of guy. And I'm not fond of the glocks, they are too light when you get close to empty, I don't like to think about compensating.

I don't know what to say. SF to Santa Cruz is only an hour without ever exceeding 100. Passengers do need to hold tight on 17.

That's a pretty good clip, Will. How do you average better than seventy miles per hour? I must drive like a little old lady!

From downtown to Hwy 280 to Hwy 17 into Santa Cruz takes me at least Manton's 1:15 and sometimes 1:20. It always seems we find a CHP or two and I hit a traffic bottleneck when I merge onto Hwy 17 southbound. Mrs. FC is a great white-knuckle trooper if and when a gap in traffic allows me to drive Hwy 17 like it should be driven.

That is why we frequently take Hwy 1 along the coast and just surrender another half-hour or so to the clock in payment for relative lack of traffic stress.

Pussy. Have a fun trip, bro. Be sure to document well.

The trick is to average 90 all the way down 280.

I also enjoy Route 1 if it's not rush hour.

...with the seasoning skills of any of the cheaper places. Original Joes was like a pound of hamburger, but it was JUST a pound of hamburger on some french bread with a piece of swiss cheese on it. I cut my gums open on it too. They serve it on super-hard french bread, the top of which is pretty damn sharp. Everyone else be forwarned.

Tommy's Joynt - Also a dire lack of seasoning. But it was cheap and if you applied salt and pepper liberally, it wasn't half bad.

Does San Francisco hate salt/pepper?

I'm going to try In N Out today and maybe some mexican food to see whether there are any discernable flavors in this town.

Yeah first time, basically its a better version of Dick's. But it's no Red Mill. I'm not really that fond of the fries, and I didn't have a shake yet... next time.
