Burger King is replacing its 40-year-old "Have it Your Way" slogan for "Be Your Way." A Burger King exec says it's more personal and emphasizes individuality. BLOOMBERG

Or they could just try the truth: "So the line at Chipotle was too long?"

Burger King also delivers now.

I like it:  "If you are even too lazy for drive thru we now have delivery".

James will not approve of this wildly extravagant display of wastefulness, time,  and money, but I had my first dining experience at Komi last night (supplemented by a $300 baby gift to the us!).

With expectations set very high, I admit that I was expected to be let down. I was wrong... Literally every single bite was perfect and the wine/beer pairing complimented every morsel.

With a price tag like Komi, I doubt I'll ever dine there again, however it was a top three dining experience of my life.

So I went to the store the other day and wanted just a can of tuna fish.  However all the Tuna Fish can's in "water" were actually in "vegetable broth and salt" and contained soy products.  I checked Bumble Bee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea and all of them had these questionable ingredients.  If I buy tuna fish in water that is what I want.  Why does our government allow this.

So I looked it up today and it seems these broths have cancer causing ingredients and even MSG.   

Why is our government doing nothing about this.

Hey Seth, how was Al Crostino last night? I was going to send a bottle of champagne to your table but didn't know if that was appropriate.

I had the lobster tortellini that was quite delicious and my wife had the Bolognese. I haven't been there since probably 2008 or so at the old location, but was pleasantly surprised. It's also much much better than Dinos which is next door.

If you were following the proper rules of tribute, this was totally appropriate. Sometimes I think about distributing my phone number to the regulars so you can text me in a situation like this and I can assist you with these issues that are directly in my wheelhouse.

EDIT:

Wouldn't this be a great service, honestly? You dial a number, then hit an extension related to your issue.
Dial 1 for luxury and pedantic etiquette questions (Julian)
Dial 2 for strip club listings, cell phones troubleshooting, and baseball scores (Vansmack)
Dial 3 for beer recommendations and general Canadian ephemera (Sweetcell)
Dial 4 for budgeting advice and reviews of unattended concerts (Rhett)
Dial 5 for the gay agenda and cat grooming (Walkie)
Dial 6 for Baltimore noise rock listings and a general lack of perspective (killsaly)
Dial 7 for a list of songs someone else just listened to (Kosmo)

I would pay 9.99/month for this.

8, 9, and 0 are still unbooked. Make your case for why you should get one of the last three spots.
