A brat and soda at Cub Foods — a grocery store chain in the Midwest with a “no fills, sack your own groceries” attitude — is only $1.75. Take that, Costco!

FUUD: Where to eat tonight

By September 2, 2011 Food

It’s Friday — and you’ve been counting down to the three-day weekend.

Me, too, actually, and right now I could use a drink. (Or a massage. Right now it’s a toss-up.)

I figure many of you — whether you’ve just completed your second week in college or survived a marathon meeting where nothing got done — you probably deserve a bit of unwinding.

So here are some of my favorite spots to hang out after work, with some of my favorite nosh items.

Get out there and eat, folks. Have a great weekend!

Great Debate: McGarrett vs. Danno

By September 1, 2011 Musings, The Daily Dish

It’s almost like choosing between Team Edward or Team Jacob.

(Thanks to all the “Twilight” fans who got that reference.)

Turns out, there are clearly distinct camps when it comes to the two leading men in CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0”, its second season set to premiere on Monday, Sept. 19.

You’re either with the cool, collected Det. Steve McGarrett (played by Alex O’Loughlin) or the fast-talking, high-strung Danny “Danno” Williams (played by Scott Caan).

I mean, you can’t find more contrasting characters, down to their hair color. One is single, the other divorced. One is stoic, the other emotional. One is by-the-book, the other is by-his-own-book. It’s the Odd Couple recast.

Personally, I’m all about Danno. He’s witty, biting, brutally honest and delivers such gems as this: “You’re like a devourer of dreams. You eat them. You’re like a little Pac-Man in cargo pants.” I vote for him.

So what about you? Are you on Team McGarrett or Team Danno?

The University of Wisconsin at Madison knows how to throw an orientation: have a picnic in a place like this. Helps that this lovely lawn is actually on campus.
