I wish. Being on disabilities would fucking rock. I could stream EQ, get my hand stuck in a Pringle cans and pop oxycotins all day because my back hurts.

5 days of the week I keep my calories below 1600 so I can eat 4,000 calories on the other days.
Tell me more about the free. Where does one sign up for this streaming video games and free food and drugs?

I would say yes...conditionally.

There's places around KC (and pretty much every city) where I wouldn't bat an eye at "failed art school waitress with tats and piercings everywhere" or "dude in skinny jeans and enough product in his hair to deflect a meteor". Grinders is one of them. Grinders West - Greater Downtown - Kansas City, MO

Asian places usually aren't.

Lulu's is one of those places positioned to cater to the young, white metropolitan crowd that lives in downtown KC. Authenticity isn't critical because...frankly...those young white metros wouldn't know good fucking Thai food if you fed it to them. In their minds "Thai food = Noodles!" and that's the bulk of their sales. Seriously, look at their Yelp reviews. At least 75% or their reviews are white chicks. I'm literally going through them right now, and it's bizarre how the reviews oscillate between "OMFG Great! Authentic!" and reviewers noting that it really isn't authentic, or making the same complaints I have over the years.

Lulu’s Thai Noodle Shop - Crossroads - Kansas City, MO

I legit want to take actual Thai folks there, just to see them pick that shit apart. And to be honest, I barely trust myself when it comes to Asian food, because I'm a white Midwesterner through and through, and the Chinese food I grew up on...wasn't actually Chinese food.
Aight I hear you on that. Thankfully most of those places don't last long around here. But there are a couple that survive by East Bay weekend people. Places that are more popular for their margarita menu than anything else.

yea, ethnic places on yelp i always ignore the white people reviews, usually they're worthless, half the time they complain about the service or the decor.
the best ethnic places are the ones that the ethnic group it caters to actually eats there. you dont see mexicans eating at taco bell.

You gotta be careful, a lot.of the portugeuse places around here cater only to that group. My sister in law is portugeuse and always talks up these places so we go with her and are served shittier food of the same dishes than her. The one thing that stood out was our fries were clearly microwaved and soggy. Hers were ultra crisp and she got more. We noticed other tables having the same thing.

Just ensured I never went back

Not exactly fast food, but I just had the Texas BBQ Smoked wings from Hooters, and they were amazing.

are you sure thats Portuguese and not Brazilian? the true Portuguese places by me make their taters chopped up into chunks and roasted in wine and hot sauce. its the most fucking delicious thing ever.

my high school was in a majority portugeuse section of town. their bacalhau will turn you white, but the picadinho is awesome.

I think mentioned it a while ago in this thread, but I can't recommend BurgerFi enough for good burgers. They don't have a huge selection, but I prefer that because it means the little they do, they do damn well.

I went last night and tried their new limited-time burger, the Steakhouse Bleu:

This thing was LOADED with blue cheese, and the sauce was delightful. It also had a nice amount of bacon. My usual choice at BurgerFi is the breakfast all day burger, which is basically a burger that has a McGriddle and McDonald's hashbrown inside. It's amazing.

thats just the NJ way of saying it, "Taylor Ham"is the more delicious version of a "pork roll".

this was the old packaging
Nah, everywhere I go out for breakfast here they say "Canadian bacon." I get excited, and it turns out to be ham. Every. Damned. Time. I haven't had good Canadian bacon for years.
