Linda was talking to a friend after Body Pump class last night about the new burger joint that opened just a few steps away from the gym. It's really handy to be able to grab lunch or dinner after a workout without having to move your car. The guys that work there are always nice to Linda. She has 30 minutes between her classes today, and they give her a free soda while she sits and studies. She's only actually eaten there a few times though. It's not because its a burger joint and she's a vegetarian. It's because the black bean/veggie burger (with toppings and fries) she wants costs $17. That's outrageous, or so she thought. Yesterday there was an article on the local radio webpage that rated the top burgers in the country. It seems $17 is on the low end of the menu price with some burgers in the $20's-up to $50 range. Maybe she is just old-school and out of touch with restaurant eating. Who pays that kind of money for a burger? Someone must be, because all the places listed were very popular.
