Woah.

Woah????

Are you practicing to be a cow-girl? Roping calves, branding them, etc. Fits right in with the Burger Club theme, though. Perhaps members of the BC would be sent to cities to taste and evaluate burgers there.

Or, even to foreign shores like Korea (don't they eat dogs there?), Japan, Costa Rica and other places where US beef has been restricted.

Apparently it's easier still to dictate the conversation and in effect, kill the conversation.

I am practicing to be Nero W. :biggrin:

I was almost called Cowboy, as a baby. If only I had been 'in-between.'

Interesting idea, Paul.

I've been there a zillion times over the years - it's the restaurant above the Comedy Cellar - but I can't remember ever trying the burger. I usually go for the falafel, hummus or beef borscht (wasn't as good on my last visit) and turkish coffee. I think they sometimes give free admission to the comedy shows on weeknights if you buy dinner, and it's not unusual to see Dave Attell, Colin Quinn or the other comics having a beer at the bar. It's hardly changed at all in the 15 or more years that I've been going, and still packs them in on weekends.

Blovie just reminded me that I have a bris to attend at 7 am (where's the sleepy emoticon?). This means I won't be home to hear the interview. Any possibility we'll be able to get a transcript?

I just registered www.elyseanfoods.com as a domain name. Host comes next?

hope that's just a typo there, and not when you registered it.

you did want "www.elyseandfoods.com", right?

although w/o the d, it's still sorta okay b/c people do say it that way.

just not as easy to remember.

Yay, Elyse! :biggrin: I didn't catch the beginning of the interview, but the part I heard was most excellent. Congratulations!

I taped it. I remembered nothing after it was over, so good thing I did. I'll let you listen to it sometime.

Staten Island? As ever, we vote. Cool by all?

Definitely a below average burger at the "Olive Tree". The Parker Meridian Hotel alone has THREE restaurants serving better burgers than the "Olive Tree's", IMHO.
