  1. GEEZ, that's crazy--not even a year later and b'bye? On the other hand, speaking of crazy, what's up with that wild boar with blonde pigtails on the Bilda Burger logo?! Oh, Hilda/Bilda--some sort of inside joke? I'm sticking with crazy. And gosh, yeah, there aren't enough burger joints around these days...thank goodness another one is opening there...

    ETA--more info here in case anyone is interested:

    1. Not surprising. Thought it was terrible.

      1. I think that's too bad. I drove by here on Sunday, saw the sign and immediately got a craving for a juicy lucy blue burger, my favorite there. It will be interesting to see how the new operation goes. I wonder what he means when he says that he wants it to be a "town kind of place".

          I thought you had liked it, so I'm sorry you missed out on one last of your favorite! I wasn't sure about that "town kind of place" comment, either--or about Carole herself saying, "But I have to think of my health and what I'm doing, too." The first made me think it would have less of a "destination" kind of appeal to that how you read it?

          P.S. to you, junescook--I hope you saw the alpaca segment on CBS Sunday Morning a few weeks back! :) Made me think of you.

            We did, thanks. Cute and soft about says it.

            Funny saying that you wouldn't want your restaurant to be the knd of place anyone would want to drive to. I think it is more of a political statement vis-a-vis the zoning boards and commissions. The town went through all sorts of legal maneuvers over a period of months to keep someone from opening a Dunkin Donuts (an outsider) in what has now become a huge, entirely empty brand new building, just down the street from a slightly older completely empty office type building.

              Ah, that makes much more sense--it's good to have the inside scoop. Out of context, it was definitely a puzzler. And glad you guys caught the cuteness--cool!
