While I've met Joe, he's not a friend (not that he's NOT a friend..but I don't know him well enough, having only met him once and said "hi" to him one other time), nor is he a relative. I've been to AJ Bombers twice, exactly the same amount of times I've been to Sobleman's.
Joe is a social media maven. If his restaurants (he has more than AJ Bombers) are mentioned, in print or on the net, he knows about it. He might have googled and this thread showed up, or whatever. I didn't tell him to come here. I'm not even sure he's ever heard of Roadfood.com before coming to this thread. He'd have to come back and answer those questions himself, though.
I don't rant, nor tirade; I respond. And as far as your "simple comment", you took my original explanation
and interpreted it as a war or whatever, when it was simply an explanation. After that, you just got nastier, and I responded in kind, as it's what you seem to understand best.
I'm at a loss as to why you remain in this thread, if you find the whole "duped" business, as well as Milwaukee, hamburgers and whatever else you have a problem with, so appalling. There are a thousand other threads where you can spout your opinions to the approval you crave.
I originally posted this thread because I was excited for Milwaukee, for AJ Bombers and for Sobleman's, that Travel Channel was coming here. Milwaukee needs the good publicity; the boost. And it's all in fun.
You, however, could not let that fun happen. I'm sorry for you.
