Fantastic. Now I know who to blame for torpedoing the Awesome Blossom at Chilis. A-hole!
What I find most distasteful is the level of ignorance he places on the reader. Look at what he’s describing:
Grand Fajita Nachos
Friday’s Jack Daniels Sampler
So this guy is out trying to get restaurants to ditch all this food because it’s unhealthy. No kidding? Am I going to go order 1 pound of fried food because I’m on a health kick? Of course not. Not to mention, if I sit down and eat the whole plate myself, that’s my meal. But I don’t. I share the plate. That’s why it’s an appetizer, doofus! You split an appetizer (notice the word appetizer does not mean meal) between 6 people, it’s 200-300 calories each. But this moron wants it banned because he’s under the assumption you’re eating it yourself.
And, to make matters worse, we go to these restaurants exactly for this comfort food. So your cardiologist won’t eat it? Fine. You can go graze the salad bar with him. Me? I’m going out, maybe once a month, to enjoy some fried food with friends. Will that send me into a cardiac tailspin? Only if I do this on a regular basis, and quite frankly, the prices at these places preclude me from doing that.
To be fair, this schmuck does address this, but only at the end of the article (kind of like what I’m doing here). I don’t go out to eat to eat helthy– I go out to eat to socialize and enjoy my one night out. Evidently, this guy doesn’t understand you can cook healthy meals at home and then enjoy an indulgence outside. Instead, he pats himself on the back for getting something he never eats tossed off a menu.
Thanks, Dave. How about I go tear up your favorite jogging track? I mean, I’m not using it, but it really would work better as a homeless shelter…
