Or, if you prefer, what the fuck???
I just took a look at the French Laundry page and it appears that all tasting menus at both the French Laundry and Per Se are now $210 DOLLARS. PER PERSON. Jesus Christ!
I found this out while looking for Per Se info for a possible trip to NYC this summer. In other words, I'm considering spending more on the meal than on the plane ticket. I think I just got so disgusted with myself that I might actually vomit. Hungry, anyone?
Now, we all know that I think Thomas Keller is a genius. I mean, in my world he's practically a deity. But $210 fucking dollars? That's just flat out ass rape right there. Especially when you consider that it was still at $175 a person when I ate there in November.
You want to know the really sick thing? I'd probably WOULD still save all my pennies just so I could pay that much to eat there. It's jerkwads like me that allow shit like this to happen. Damn!
I keep telling you people that I have a problem. I need that intervention and I need it now.

P.S. I got a juicy scoop last night that I can't divulge yet...BUT it involves my friend Scott and some other really fucking cool people that get me all hot and bothered. I'll tell you as soon as he lets me, but when all the bitches start pretending like they knew first, just know that I knew so early that I can't even talk about it yet. So there!
