Chang was talking about regional food asked Simmons about New England and Simmons said lobster roll. Chang said what it’s got to be clam chowder. I’m not a huge lobster guy anyhow but mixed with mayo on a hot dog bun? You’ve got to be shitting me.
For LA Bill said fast food burgers Chang said you lunatic it’s tacos. Bill kind of came around to that but the guy clearly still eats like he’s in collegeMarch 12, 2020 at 8:25 am #146157Laszlo PanaflexParticipantMarch 12, 2020 at 10:06 am #146158BrianInLAParticipant
The taco thing is definitely it here. Before moving to the west coast my taco experience was usually Taco Bell. I’ve learned so much about the different regions and flavors of different areas and how the taco’s of those establishments reflect that and its been both eye opening and quite satisfying as far as food goes. Especially in the valley. You can eat taco’s every day of the week and never have the same type/taste twice. Simmons is a dope.
There is a really popular food truck out here that sells the Boston lobster roll. Folks at work love it. $22 for a hot dog bun, mayo and some chunks of what may or may not be real Maine lobster (I’ve read its real but who knows).
The burgers here suck. In-N-Out is the most overrated thing on the planet.March 12, 2020 at 11:11 am #146159jforbParticipant
Are the fans with NCAA tickets actually staying home or are they all going to go to the cities and hit the bars? And same with spring training?March 12, 2020 at 11:22 am #146160
I’ll never understand the love of In-N-Out. I think it’s garbage. Opening in Colorado soon, everyone is dying for it. Hard pass. Problem with fast casual burger joints especially chains is they either overcook or oversalt. Smashburger jesus I half expect to be surrounded by deer or rabbits as I feel like a human salt lick. The boutique or local burger places tend to be better. There’s one here called Lark Burger that’s pretty damn good and a handful of locations.
We have some place called the Maine Shack, started by guys from there. They have multiple lobster rolls including the type with no mayo so its just lobster and drawn butter. 4 oz lobster roll is 24 bucks. A clam roll is friggin’ 18 bucks. Pass.
The chicken parm thing killed me. Reminds me of Michael Kay who according to stories is like the worlds worst food person. One of the main items in his diet is chicken parm. Was on his honeymoon in Italy and was pissed that chicken parm wasn’t readily available. Steak and chicken parm is all he eats. I’m guessing Simmons diet isn’t that bad but it’s probably close.March 12, 2020 at 11:25 am #146161

Guessing they just stay home. Like anything else the second a player or ref or coach or staff member comes down with it they’re bagging the whole thing. Why bother going? Only people who will keep doing what they’re doing are the degenerates heading to Vegas.March 12, 2020 at 11:42 am #146162jforbParticipant
Think I ate at Larkburger 3 times in the week I was in Fort Collins a few years ago, would love one out here.March 12, 2020 at 12:04 pm #146163Nashua DadParticipant
I like In-N-Out, fries are great, put at the top of my list in the fast burger category.March 12, 2020 at 12:30 pm #146164
Unfortunately LarkBurger is on its last legs. I think there’s only 2 locations anymore.
Everyone cancelling tournaments. Except for the Big East. Hey guys, it’s not 1985 anymore, nobody cares.March 12, 2020 at 12:31 pm #146165March 12, 2020 at 12:38 pm #146166ComaParticipantMarch 12, 2020 at 12:51 pm #146167BrianInLAParticipant
In-N-Out does pay their employees a ridiculous salary so that’s good for them on that.
One of our older IT guys is self quarantining as his nurse wife may been been exposed. If he has it we all have it. We already have 2 IT folks home with sore throats. They’re sending home anyone over 55. Its just a matter of hours before everything is shut down here. They banned groups over 250 I think statewide until April 1.
Tower Penthouse Suites at the Aria (normally $3000) going for $450 a night this weekend for the daring. Granted there will be no sports to bet on nor food to eat.March 12, 2020 at 12:53 pm #146168
Right? Foodstuffs are all fine, but everyone is worried they’ll be left with bare hands when they take a shit? As usual I blame the wives.March 12, 2020 at 1:19 pm #14616902062ParticipantMarch 12, 2020 at 1:27 pm #146170ComaParticipantMarch 12, 2020 at 1:43 pm #146173Canadian SoldierParticipant

All Major League Baseball operations suspended immediately. All players being sent home, no word on if or when regular season will start.
NHL says it will “pause” its season beginning with tonight’s games due to coronavirus.March 12, 2020 at 1:46 pm #146175

The Hockey Guy reporting that the NHL asked its clubs to check out building availability to the end of July. Imagine the Garden ice in mid-July!March 12, 2020 at 2:04 pm #146177Laszlo PanaflexParticipant

This will be a real test for the zealots and true-believers that run things like that. I know my kid is still scheduled to take place in a Figure Skating Competition this weekend.March 12, 2020 at 2:16 pm #146178
Oh yeah, my kids are still on for soccer this weekend. Nothing like kids touching and breathing on each other.March 12, 2020 at 2:26 pm #146179
Duke suspending all athletics, including if there is an NCAA tournament. They’ll have that thing shut down within the hour.March 12, 2020 at 2:47 pm #14618002062Participant
According to the Globe, it’s business as usual on Hanover Street.March 12, 2020 at 2:49 pm #146181chicowalkerParticipant
I decided maybe three/four weeks ago to skip big east this year because my son isn’t sleeping right and it would be too much for my wife. My buddy was still going. Despite them announcing last night no more crowds, he was in the car at 6am, hoping another friend w/some contacts w/the conference that he might be able to get one of the rare passes to be in the building. He was on the road back to dartmouth by 1pm
