Some people think I am a picky eater. The way I see it, I know what I like and I don’t want any funny business. Happily I have discovered The Burger Place on University Way. They have a fill-it-in-yourself ordering form that gets you a burger just the way you want it. They serve burgers and fries—that’s it (oh, and onion rings). They have a good amount of condiment/extras choices without overwhelming you. There are several patties to choose from, including veggie and salmon, pleasing both carnivores and vegetarians alike.

The people that work there are all very chipper and happy to see you. The space has a pleasing clean modern design and hip trays and a giant flat-screen TV you can watch while you eat.

Last night they were showing Larry King Live, while King interviewed Hugh Hefner and his three live-in girlfriends—absolutely fascinating. Watching these bimbo-rific women gush about how fabulous Hefner is, how great it is to all be together, and no, him being 60 years older than them doesn’t matter AT ALL. There was some unintentional hilarity with the computer-generated subtitles on the screen. Hugh claimed their relationship was totally open “without liceā€¯ and that his ancestor was one of the first “pure tansā€¯ to come over on the Mayflower. Glad to hear it.
