    They don't have everything available all of the time. Only maybe four or five cuts on any given night.

    That mark up doesn't sound outrageous for New York.

    I'm now forced to contemplate the brisket and sausage from the County Line and Salt Lick in Austin. I'd like to thank you bastards for ruining my afternoon, pining for that which I cannot have.

    Dinosaur is overrated IMO. I think the original one in Syracuse is the best (as do most peeps), but even there the food is not great. One of their expansion locations is in my city and it's a little too polished.

    Salt lick isn't as good as it once was

    Yeah, that $6 per for NYC vs. Texas is probably the single reason I'd never move to NYC.

    :rolleyes:

    a good friend from the south (and a restauranteur) disagrees, even though their "style" of ribs is not what he's used to.

    You Great Northwesterners are worse than the southerners as far as making comparisons.

    You're not frugal at all, you just have very specific priorities when it comes to money. *ahem* M5 *ahem*

    It's funny. Growing up, I used to resent my father so much for being so frugal and goddamn stingy, and now I'm the exact same way.

    West Coast is back for all you suckas
    So I'm fresh out of college, no UG debt, some savings (around 5k), a car I could sell for 15k and have a year, maybe two to kill before grad school. I've lived in California all my life and want a change of scenery. Can I live okay on 40k (pre-taxes)? I hardly buy clothes anymore, eat fairly frugally and don't spend much when I go out.
