2. Will Chrissy survive no edibles for at least 2 weeks now with this lock down?
3. The Popeyes chicken Sammy is fucking delicious.

8. Are there bets on when this is all going to be over? I don't see April 7th as a viable option.

7. I heard rumors that packies are gonna close starting tomorrow.

You are shocked that I'm posting , while on vacation and in a totally different time zone.

This is what I learned on the west coast:
1. I'll take 82 degrees in February any time.
2. Hey San Diego Zoo why is half your shit down for renovations?
3. Without fail, I get hit on by men more often than not.
4. Have you guys seen Joes new scar?
5. Did Rob invite you guys to Mexico? Me either.
6. It appears that everyone is going to Florida, vacation week in April.
7. Congrats to Matt and Meg, if anyone needs a place to stay in Hotlanta...hit them up. They just bought a place in college Park.

9. I have been to a Lazy Hippo, a Blind Burro and a Tipsy Crow all within a few days.
10. I went to 5 different breweries and I'd rank as:
          1. Kairoa Brewery - see my man Drew and chill out on the roof deck.
          2. The Resident Brewery at Local - great food and music, tons of beers not all good.
         3. Ballast Point - they have it down. Like an old pair of sneakers. Just fits right.
         4. The Half Door - converted old house that makes their own brew. Beer was better than most just a grandma's vibe

Wendy's breakfast

Well I gotta admit I was a little hesitant about this review. Not because I was nervous about trying something. No it's because the doors were closed and only the drive thru was open. I don't like to eat it my car. So I was just gonna say fuck it but then I saw the picture for the breakfast baconator and I was sucked right back in! And let me just say I'm glad I was. Holy shit, this was hands down the best fast food breakfast sandwich I ever had. Wendy's definitely learned from the trash they tried to roll out a few years back in their first attempt at breakfast. The menu looked like it had quite a few options. Couldn't really take it all in since I was in a rush with people behind me. But they had a chicken sandwich on a biscuit. A few egg sandwich choices with different bread options. I knew what I was ordering once I saw the picture but I still wanted to see what else they had. 6 strips of bacon, a sausage patty, and a fresh cracked egg, need I say more? Not sure of what type of roll it was on but it was decent. Didn't add anything to it but didn't take away either. Even the frozen potato wedges had good seasoning flavor. If you follow @Wendy's you know they went private last week and they have been bashing the competition ever since. If the other items on their breakfast menu are half as good as the baconator, we could see McDonald's being pushed to up there game!




KFC review

Gotta give credit where credit is due. When every other place is going keto friendly or trying to make meat out of plants. KFC says fuck that. Let's give the people what they want. And the fat kid in me loves that! They come out with a chicken sandwich where there are donuts for the bread. The donuts themselves are just ok. Nothing great but not horrible. They are a Krispy Kreme knockoff. But being warmed up helps and being drenched in a glaze sauce is key. This matched with the classic KFC breast just pairs well. People rave about chicken and waffles, and I can't say I blame them. The way the syrup just goes so well with the chicken. Well I gotta say the glaze goes even better. I give it a solid 7.1.


Chrissy coming through with the blazing food review.

3. If you get a chance check out Table Boston.
4. Always a good time to see Mike G and his wife.
5. Jeffreys planning a huge trip to Saratoga in August. Clear your schedules.

7. Hope everyone grabbed their St. Paddy's day attire. Look good feel good.
8. How young is too young to retire?
9. People who tell me they can't wait for baseball season...are you lieing to me or yourselves?
10. You didn't hear this from me but Leaden still moon lights at the Charlie Horse from time to time. I just can't quit you!!
11. If you could only drink one type of alcohol from now until the end of time what would it be. I'm going straight vodka.
12. Is there anything more annoying than ordering food and it comes out wrong?
