    I wish that someone would make bottled or canned coffee drinks that
    didn't have added sugar, but just coffee and cream. The Starbuck's
    Frappucinos are like syrup.

    Well, at least we both agree that Blue Bottle is really, really good
    coffee.

    I think you know how much I like my burgers, however that place is a
    charcuterie (which you probably knew before you posted)
    http://fattedcalf.com/

    Oh, this is a good time to tell you that I went to Denny's last night
    after a party and ordered a patty melt. OMG, it was really good! I
    have good things to say about the service too.

    I've always found Denny's to have decent food, at least what I've ordered.

    I have never understood the aura of a Frappuchino. I dunno. Maybe
    it's like coffee (with cream) flavored soda without the fizz.

    You can safely assume that... but I really was surprised! We shared
    the burger, so I asked for another plate when we ordered, we ordered
    an add-on salad in addition to the burger and fries. He immediately
    volunteered to split the salad, so I figured the salad plate would be
    the extra one I asked for. We got what looked to me like two regular
    salads when they arrived and the burger came to the table with two
    plates. All that for $10. Needless to say, the server was tipped
    generously.

    I've even taken espresso and refrigerated it. Add water to reconsitute
    to chilled Americano strength. Rather like whiskey and water diluting
    the concentrated stuff down to beer strength; %^) Not nearly as good
    as fresh Americano that still warm but it works in a pinch.

    Dennys is reliable road food and I've generally had good experiences as
    well. And it's about the only choice around here after 11 PM on a week
    night.
