I just forgot. the one I used to take the photo has a broken stand-in of itself in the photo. ok, here's one last version of it. this one might actually be my fave of the series.

bonus weekend post

burger, fries n shake
from: lucy's eastside diner
price: $10
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: usually, I won't post lunches from weekends. but this place, I've been wanting to try since it recently opened. this little diner is on main street between 11th and 12th. and here's the best part... it's open 24 hours. nice. it's a pretty tiny place, but they managed to have lots of seats. mostly at the bar, or facing the wall, but they did well. it's also got a great 1950s diner feel to it. from the arborite and chrome tables, to the tiled floor.

and erin had:

the pulled pork sandwich
comments: she liked this sandwich. not as good as Re-Ups, she said, but still very good. we also both really liked the peanut butter and chocolate shake. yum. or yeah, this lunch was actually dinner. ha!
