The Home Page (and other) reviews Wed, 03/12/03 12:11 PM (permalink)
Would it be possible to add a comment section (other than a "re-review") to the the original review (either in a section on the review page or with a link to a comment in the forum section)?

For example: in Michael's review of Karen's (3/12/02), based on the notes and the pics, I want to make a day trip up Rt22 as soon as the weather clears a bit. That southern NYS upstate area is a favorite (I went to college not far from Pawling) and I often just drive there just to pass the time; Karen's gives me a destination.

I would have liked put up a note saying something along the lines of, "I headin' there just as soon as I get the car dug out of the snowpile," just to let you know I appreciate the review ad it made me want to go.

    That is a great idea, and it is something we have thought about. The problem is making it usuable so people don't have to click all over the place to find information. Thanks for the suggestion!

      What's with the title for members of JUNIOR BURGER ?? Are we being graded? or sterotyped? Perhaps there should be a series of 'ranks' Junior Burger, Hot Dog, Dagwood, and Pitmaster are suggested...hehehe

        There is a series of rankings. You actually made it to Hamburger by getting 50 Posts. Next level is cheeseburger, and it progresses 4 levels beyond that. I won't give away any more details, but the more you post, the tastier you become.

          Sheesch, Stephen, just as long as the more I post the larger the sandwich....ie- 1/4 pounder, 1/2 pounder etc etc .. doesn't become the criteria!!

                If we use some logic here
                Junior Burger ...
                Hambuger ...
                We're told the next level is
                Cheeseburger ...

                ... CheeseBurger Deluxe ...
                goes higher than that ?
                ...SpamBurger ...

                          Yumbo,
                          Let me tell ya, the responsibility of The Office of Hamburger is not something to be triffled (Truffled) with.
                          The whole world becomes your critic...and a simple slip (20 or 30 times)of the finger (no pun) can draw comments from around the country.
                          I hope you are ready for it, son, It does feel kinda good, but scary. Y'know what I mean?

                            In Ontario we have the banquetburger (cheese and overcooked bacon strips on top) is this a level or a specialist?
                            Cheers

                              The direction of this thread makes me think of the "breaded hamburger" at Snappy Lunch -- a leftover from Depression days when they stretched the supply of hamburger meat by mixing bread crumbs into it. If there were negative rankings, that would be it. Or maybe a soyburger ...

                                The ultimate combination would then become the "Breaded SoyaLoin" handmade by Illegal Aliens near Ft Huachuca,AZ, Fried in Mesquite Oil and served 'White-Castle Style' on tiny little tortillas.?????
                                The name of the foodstand escapes me now...but I know the title contained the words " Federal Detention Center..." somehow.

                                  But....what if you wanna be a hot dog? Personally I think the ultimate ranking would be a NT's Garbage Plate..but I guess it doesn't sound very..royal..

                                    What about Super Duper Weenie? or Superdawg? I think there used to be a place in Chicago that called itself The Wiener and Still Champion. But if we're looking for royal titles, I think we have to go to the South, where there is a host of pigs wearing crowns. And of course there is Forrest Yerby, pitmaster at R Place, who has dubbed himself The Big Butt King. Now, there's a title to aspire to!

                                      "The Big Butt King"??? WOW if that's why I am working my fingers to the Corpal Tunnel Syndrome Bone here, maybe I will slow down a bit and let one of you be the "King of the Posts" for awhile!

                                        Just so long as there's no Hillbilly Hamburger category. On the other hand, I haven't had one of those in years. Hmmm.

                                              I suggest we add "Arsonist" to The Mayor's nom de guerre, judging from all the flaming file icons that he's created.

                                                  I have been flamed now and then on-line, but never as a badge of honor.
                                                  We are headed for the TN flea markets for the weekend...and to check out a couple of places including the Ridgewood.
                                                  Try to keep the place calm without me, ok?

                                                      If it weren't for the damn golden arches and all they represent, I sure go for the "handle" of Big Mac.

                                                        You too??? I LOVE chicken feet in black bean sauce! The asian ladies always get a big kick out of it when I order that..they tell me I'm the only caucasian to ever order it there.
