where are the whopperettes?
On a recent quick trip up to Charlottesville with ed riley to watch UVA beat VA Tech in basketball, our plans to eat in a favorite local diner were dashed by snowfall and a "closed "sign on the door. On a snowy night, there were not many culinary options that worked in our limited timeframe. So we punted and pulled through the Burger King drivethrough, perhaps enticed by images of the "Mad King" or more likely visions of ladies in lettuce and tomatoe costumes falling from the sky. Let's call in snowflake induced hallucinations. On the 10 minute walk I wolfed down fries and 2 cheeseburgers as I looked around to make sure no one was watching me.
