    Finally, some good news in my life. My city is getting its Bad Daddy's Burger Bar location opened on Monday. My dad doesn't want to go there on the first week, but if all goes well, on August 8th I will be eating a 1200 calorie burger with 1000 calorie tater tots and a 900 calorie milkshake. God bless America, land of the freaking 3100 calorie meals.

    ...I feel some of you judging right now, but there's only one opinion I care about: My cardiologist's. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go set up an appointment for August 9th. >_>

    Calling a fast food chain a "restaurant" just sounds wrong to me. A restaurant is a (stylish) place where you dine for two to three hours.

    It does sound pretty tasty though. I can imagine worse ways to go than having a burger induced heart-attack.

    Maybe its fast food because it sends you swiftly shuffling off your mortal coil.
    I paid 5 euros for a latte in Charles De Gaulle airport in Star-mucks.. The latte came out in 30 seconds tops... for five euros they could have finessed it a bit more... I mean I was in France right?

    It sounds like your dad is already getting into the spirit of things.

    Well, in Amsterdam, we have The Butcher... the burger is ok, the atmosphere is meh.. but the prices... are restaurant prices... with milkshakes at 9 euro... kinda like the too-expensive-coffee people pay in the sky lounge bar near Amsterdam Central Station at € 6,25 for an expresso.

    ^ Sounds like a place where people go to prove that they have money to waste.

    I feel like reviving this thread. I might be going to a slightly more respectable establishment than Bad Daddy's tomorrow.

    Presenting Growler USA: http://www.growlerusa.com/craft-beer-pubs/nc-charlotte-gastonia/

    Only problem: I can't drink with my medication. :( But at least I can get a beer flavored Reuben. Brewben, anyone?

    Any vegetarian or vegan choices?

    Oh, so you're "that guy"...

    A quick glance at the online menu for my location is telling me "no".

    Edit: I mean, I guess you could do the Caesar Salad or Skillet Mac without meat, but the first has eggs, and the second has cheese.

    Shoot, it turns out that my Growler USA location is having live music tomorrow night. If it's too crowded we might not go. I mean, we'll probably be there early enough to beat the wait, but there's still a chance that we'll have to go elsewhere.

    I suggested a pizzeria in Cherryville as an alternate, but my stepmother said it was too far. You have no idea what it's like for me to be denied pizza.

    Well, we went, and the food and music were pretty good. Neither I nor my parents tried the beer. Surprisingly, the place wasn't full, probably due to it being located in the back of the historic Loray Mill. We parked in the wrong area, and it was like fifteen minutes between when we got out of the car and when we actually found the place. Good times.
