How I Met Your Mother And Other Shows

If you don’t watch it yet, you should. It’s hilarious. The last episode was all about how some girls have “crazy eyes,” which my buddy Dave and I used to talk about all the time in law school. As in, “stay away from her shes got the CRRRRRRRRAZY EYES!” (while shaking your jowls back and forth). Also, they had this thing about how nicknames for guys start. Brilliant. Go put it on your DVR, since you will never ordinarily find it (being as it is on CBS, which normally only geezers watch). Also, the Unit is great, and Friday Night Lights is awesome. I am in love with Layla! Screw Lost and their 3 month hiatus!

Boqueria

We went there last week. The food was great, and the wine was excellent – they have a couple of wines that are long poured out of a spout. It was impressive. The service was excellent too. I recommend it highly.

Virginia Is For Douchebags

….because the Allen/Webb race is even close! This should have been a landslide. That it is a close race is a testament to the fact that Virginia must be a state full of slack-jawed, back-ass-wards hicks. Allen is a man who yells racial epithets at his rallies. A man who is obsessed with the Confederate flag (don’t give me that bullshit about it being part of your “heritage”). A man who put the severed head of a deer in the mailbox of the nearest black family he could find. A man who is not afraid to use the N-word. How could you vote for this guy? Virginia’s shame is all of our shame.

BLT Burger

Fan-fucking-tastic. Expensive, but one of the most tender, juicy burgers I have ever had. WAY better than Shake Shack, which I can no longer go to because of all the health violations which make me cringe. We had the “BLT” Burger. Two patties of sweet, red meat, with smokehouse bacon and lettuce and tomato on a simple bun. We also got the onion rings (don’t bother) and the chili cheese fries, which were pretty good. Finally they had a great Belgian wheat beer – Ommegang Witte. Our total bill for two beers, two burgers, onion rings, cheese fries, and one dessert was $64, or $32 a person. Not cheap at all. But a DAMN good burger. I like their rule that says they don’t cook the burgers any more than Medium. Why even buy a burger if you’re gonna go above medium! you might as well chew on a charcoal briquet.
