So Shrimpfest this Friday at RL in Oakhurts for lunch would be out?

(Junior) #386

It would be out regardless how fat or semi-fat I am! lol


You can do it!!

(David) #388

Are we at all surprised that a group of food loving people all have a few extra pounds on us?

So maybe no big Hodown this month?


Haha. Some of us have to wear the badge of honor.

(Junior) #390

Go for it, please do NOT sacrifice for me. I’m just being honest I’ve been on a good roll of over indulging and have to cut back but that is NO reason not to continue the momentum of the Ho’downs. Depending on where it is I might still join, if nothing else top by afterward to say hello. Maybe with my absence @VikingKaj will come out of his shell.

Or, in my case, the walk of shame.

(Junior) #392

Or more accurately, “the waddle of shame”

We could also go somewhere with healthier choices (Greek or other Mediterranean options come to mind)…like…dinner at Bayroot, which I’ve been meaning to do?

(Junior) #395

I am flattered at the willingness of everyone to accommodate me, truth is there are healthy options anywhere. I can’t think of one place we have gone to that you can’t find a reasonable dish at. So please make whatever plans you want or have previously discussed. Thank you for being as conscientious as you are being.

(Retired !) #396

The garlic shrimp are a not as bad option.

(Retired !) #397

So now we know why you look so grim here

It’s not just Eli…

You’re starving.


Hey…that’s MY line about being able to find healthy food on any menu!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


I hear you jr. I’ve been doing it for like a year. It sucks but after a while it pays off.

So folks, where should I get my next steak (somewhere new)

I’m thinking grand tavern, blu gratto, or the ribeye at woodys. I thought the strip at woodys was decent so I’d be willing to give the ribeye at whirl.

(Junior) #400

Give woodys a try you won’t be disappointed.


Yeah one of these days I will get there for that ribeye. That’s on my list. Maybe my next steak outting will find me there. Has anyone had the Tramas dry aged ribeye?

@joonjoon any badass ribeyes in AP lately? When the hell is AP going to get a Korean joint? We need one before we get into this nuclear war :smile:

Grilled Loin Lamb Chops with fresh herbs.

They are like a little porterhouse.


Daaaayum that looks good!


I love those things. What kind of herbs? I always wonder why they aren’t more popular on menus.
