Is the $96 for a party of two? If so, then it's not that bad. It's more than I would spend, but not outrageous.

To me it just seems like this is a "Oh my god, the sky is falling! Whatever will we do?" situation that's being overblown. It's everywhere, but maybe I'm just exposed to it more now that I'm on the (very, very) outskirts of the industry.

What the hell do I know, though? I'm just a guy that would rather spend his hard earned money on something that lasts longer than a fine-dining experience.

Like beer.

Yeah, I think my point to this entry (of course, who knows exactly what the point might be to an entry written at 3:30 in the morning) was kind of a final word on the matter, because I am sick of talking about it, and so is everyone else. Basically, as long as you're talking the talk, you gotta walk the walk and actually be out there supporting all types of local restaurants. Whether you want to spend $96.00 on dinner for two at Fugaise or $9.60 for a couple of sandwiches at Manny's Tortas.

$96 may be a "bargain" to somebody who is happy about buying $300 jeans, but the concierge business must be doing well, because I thought I was making pretty good bank, and I feel I can only afford to spend that kind of money on a meal maybe once or twice a month, tops.

For everyday dining, I fret over the 8 bucks it costs to get an eggplant wedge from Brianno's.

(Yeah, the jeans thing was a cheap shot. I'm only kidding. I'm sure your new jeans look hawt.)

By the way, regarding your column:

It never ceases to amaze me to discover that there are people out there who actually enjoy taking it back there. I dread a simple proctology exam more than dental surgery, and a typical doctor's finger is a much smaller offender than what we are talking about here.

I guess it just goes to show that different people enjoy VERY different things.

By the way, I just looked at the Temple link, and was relieved to see that you can order Kobe beef as a proper grilled steak.

The very thought of a "Kobe Beef Hamburger" makes about as much sense to me as using a $600 Mouton Rothschild wine as cooking sherry.

But for a nice stone-grilled slab of marbleized Kobe Beef, they just might get be to drive into town once in a while.

fINALLY A TOPIC i FEEL i CAN CONTRIBUUTE TO.
if YOU HAVE TO ASK HOW TO TRAIN F0R 50 MINUTES OF REVERSE COWGIRL, FLOURISHING AT THE END WIHT A DEFT PENETRATION OF THE BACKSIDE, YES VERY VERY VERY SLOWLY, THEN YOU HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT HOW TO UNFULR THE CLNCEHD FINGERS FROM AROUND THE EDGESOF THE PILLOWS EITHER. nO ONE IN MN qppreciates greta food or ubnderstands its place in our scoiety, and now i KNOW WHY. bECAUSE NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO FUCK EITHER. gOOOD LORD, THATS SAD.

LOL.

Ya know, somehow I doubt that comment came from the real AZ, since everyone knows that I'm "Big A" and he's "Lil' A". Besides, Lil' A doesn't drink and only a rather intoxicated individual could create a mess like that.

Right on Girl Friday...and let me officially state for the record that the most interesting aspect of your VITAMN piece was the idea that those who beg to give back there should be open to the concept of receiving! and notice how all the men out there eschew any reference to that part of the column!

I thought I was making pretty good bank, and I feel I can only afford to spend that kind of money on a meal maybe once or twice a week

hell, i feel like i'm doing pretty well myself and that spendy of a meal is a once a year thing at best for my wife and I...

Not really an option unless you're gay. A female partner could "give" with the use of special tools, but what could she get out of that beyond the catharsis of seeing her boyfriend impaled?

Perhaps I'm just too Lutheran or something, but I'm not terribly interested in being on either side of the transaction. For the right girl, I'm willing to do it at her request, but I don't think I would ever suggest it myself.

Andrew

Right on Dave! Stand up and be heard straight men of the Twin Cities.

Alexis

Oh sit down, you're Jewish and from the East Coast.

geoff

Did he really just say, "For the right girl, I'm willing to do it at her request, but I don't think I would ever suggest it myself." Who said chivalry is dead?

FWIW, whenever I bring it up, my wife invokes the cucumber test...says if she's willing to take it then so should I. Let's just say that if I ever have you over for dinner, you're perfectly safe eating the cukes.
