IIRC, me, charder, and munson all thought it was pretty terrible, AGame wouldn't back down from his position one inch despite 3 other people basically telling him that it's far from optimal.

I tried the never ending pasta bowl once and when you combine it with the standard salad/breadsticks there is only so much pasta you can eat. Yeah, the portion was smaller on the second bowl but I couldn't even finish that.

I'm impressed you were able to put down 4 or 5 bowls or whatever you had.

I think pure math can disprove this or something

Some high level math expert chime in and/or explain.

True story...

I went to applebees several years ago with some friends. We sat in the bar, drinking some beers, waiting for our food to show up. I had ordered the sizzling fajitas, seriously that was the name. So they bring the food, and I sarcasticly joke they aren't sizzling. I guess the guy who brought them over was a manager or something, so he says "sorry about that, let me give you a beer for free then."

Pretty ELIte imo.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

i am a former abstract algebra major, "2" "plus" "2" should obviously equal something in our group/ring/field, so we just call it "4". if you are non-conformist, you may technically choose to call it "5", but then you will be laughed at and held out of publishing any of your crap in any peer-reviewed journal.

i think that sums AGame up pretty well.

Seriously. It's not like you can use the excuse that they're cheaper, either. If you live in a halfway decent metropolitan area you can find local fare that's better and probably cheaper too.

lol AGame.

On another note, a bunch of us went from TS to Dinosaur for my birthday in '07. They have some kooky special that involves a full rack of ribs and a bottle of champagne... I think we were the first people to order it in a significant amount of time.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

Nobody goes to the Olive Garden because they think it's good (I mean people do, but they are poor and thus inconsequential). I go to Olive Garden because I specifically want the type of crap Olive Garden serves (although mostly I went to Olive Garden because Kyle wanted to go and haven't been on my own since I moved out nearly 2 years ago).

(but again, salad and breadsticks legit good)

Calling anything composed principally of iceberg lettuce a salad is a bit of a stretch.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

I can't speak for Olive Garden since I can't remember ever going there, but it's an insult to Taco Bell to be lumped in with Pizza Hut. Pizza Hit makes one thing that is edible, Taco Bell is completely delicious.

Taco Bell had always been my go to drunk food (specifically the cheesy gordita crunch, which is delicious), but I've gotten sick twice in the last few years, and both times were after a bad episode of Taco Bell. No mas.

only thing that beats AK is AA and you have an A so it's unlikely he has AA

plus ak has way more of a chance for a straight. Don't even get me started if it's suited.

Red Lobster fits into this category of restaurants perfectly as well.
