LockeOak: At least Jimmy Buffet doesn't pretend to be a chef.
Grither: HotWingConspiracy: Why anyone would travel to a food haven and plop their asses down at a TGI Fridays is more than I can comprehend.Guess what the highest grossing restaurant in Manhattan is!
The Third Man: AngryPanda: fireclown: WTF Indeed: Anyone that walks into that place thinking it's not a money trap for middle-aged couples who DVR his show, then they are dumber than the Guy Fieri's persona.Great. Now can we do something about the various Jimmy Buffet restaurants?Or Buffalo Wild Wings?It is a source of bewilderment to me that Buffalo Wild Wings has locations in Buffalo. It can't be for the tourist trade, because Buffalo has no tourists. And every local knows that even the local sub shop will have wings twice as good for less than half the price. How the hell do they stay in business?
Paris1127: Is it just me or was every sentence in that article a question? Oh god, am I ending my sentences with question marks now? Jesus H. Christ, WTF do I do now?
Yanks_RSJ: damageddude: Rule 1 when eating in the TImes Square area: avoid theme/chain/celebrity restaurants at all costs.Rule 2: See Rule 1Seriously, walk just a block or two on any side street and you will find plenty of moderately priced, good restaurants.Guy Fieri may be an enormous douche, but he's not an idiot. Open a restaurant in Times Square and wait for all the fat flyover tourist humps to flock through the doors and pile generic food into their mouths. The fact that people travel to this city and willingly restrict themselves to Times Square's overpriced garbage is amazing.Christ, walk out past 8th avenue and even Restaurant Row has better options. It's only two blocks, it won't kill ya.
skullkrusher: I used to work in TS and would get tourists almost every day asking for directions to the Olive Garden. You are in the middle of NYC. You are in Times Square... restaurant row is a 2 block walk from where you are. You want Italian food? We have that here. There are literally dozens of little, awesome bistros and cafes and restaurants lining both sides of the street and you are asking for directions to the all you can eat breadsticks?
WarszawaScream: Writing an article in all questions seems like a great idea, this totally won't make anyone want to slap me and disregard everything I'm saying.
topcon: Who do you love to hate more:Guy Fieri or Nancy Grace?It's a tough question.
Mart Laar's beard shaver: I, for one, would like to know how to make my drinks glow like they're radioactive.Any Fark tutorials?
pute kisses like a man: / as a general rule, if the place says home of the best _____, it is not the home of the best _____.
thomps: Staffist: What the fark is going on here?i'm sorry, did you come in here expecting engaging conversation? is that more or less dumb than going to time square and expecting a quality dining experience?
Englebert Slaptyback: The watermelon margarita? Any idea why it tastes like some combination of radiator fluid and formaldehyde?"We add just a little for-mal-dee-hyde for flavor."Home of shiny green suit!
fireclown: Joe Peanut: Actually, as New Yorker I would say "Rule 1: Avoid Times Square".I disagree. It's something that you should see at least once.
Langdon Alger: and the rules of 20 questions flew right out the door for this author.
tricycleracer: I think that fictional character Nadia G could take fictional character Guy Fieri in a fight.
WHO WANTS DONKEY SAUCE?
joaquin closet: What if there were no rhetorical questions?
Cythraul: Paris1127: Cythraul: xanadian: Paris1127: Is it just me or was every sentence in that article a question? Oh god, am I ending my sentences with question marks now? Jesus H. Christ, WTF do I do now?How do you feel about playing a game of "Questions Only" on Whose Line?Is this a difficult game?Do you have a basic idea of the rules based solely off the title?/of course, perhaps "Questionable Impressions" on Whose Line? is harder?Wouldn't the nature of playing this game through the internet make the game less challenging? Wouldn't having ample time to think of a response in the form of question, removed from the spontaneity of in-person participation reduce the skill required?
busy chillin': skullkrusher:I used to work in TS and would get tourists almost every day asking for directions to the Olive Garden. You are in the middle of NYC. You are in Times Square... restaurant row is a 2 block walk from where you are. You want Italian food? We have that here. There are literally dozens of little, awesome bistros and cafes and restaurants lining both sides of the street and you are asking for directions to the all you can eat breadsticks?I agree that sucks...but lots of people aren't cool and don't want to be cool. They aren't adventurous and don't want to go into a place they don't know where snobby foodies are going to look down their noses as they mispronounce menu items.I hate Olive Garden, but as I get older I get it. Sometimes you just want to eat...not be the lame kid sitting at the cool kid table sticking out like a soar thumb.
KatjaMouse: Am I the only one who thinks improv games are the lowest form of comedy?
