for the love of burgers

Well, after twelve long years of abstinence, and a level of what some could even have called 'self control' (my least exhibited quality in cases ranging from most to all), I have begun eating hamburgers again. And HOW I have begun eating hamburgers again! I am in carnivorous heaven. I forgot all about them--the chin-dripping juice, the sumptuous flavor, the complete satisfaction--it's been a whirlwind tour of Burger NYC ever since. Thankfully, many of my friends have been very accommodating of my mission to reconquer the humble beef patty. They have allowed me to haul them around to each and every last den of city-based, meaty fame without complaint or question. I am keenly aware that the trade-off for these outings would be much more satisfying for them if I spent less time cramming my face with oozy, juicy burger and more time talking to them and/or even looking at them. But I can't help it! I'm rolling with king Burger now.

Pictured above is the notorious West Village burger joint Corner Bistro, shown in accompaniment is Nani (as tiger).

Expect more burger reports to follow. Huzzah huzzah!
