Frittering Away Precious Time Staring At Ben Affleck.

I love a good happy hour. Especially when they are super cheap. The Gilt Club is not super cheap. All the food is $5 during happy hour. But it is really good food and I didn't even care that I ended up spending $20 on food and drinks. Also because our waiter looked like Ben Affleck. Don't get me wrong, I think Ben Affleck is a terrible actor and is probably pretty dumb, but I'm not ashamed to say that he is a beautiful specimen. As was the waiter.

But anyway. I ordered a mini-bacon cheeseburger, which was tiny, but seriously so flavorful, with a special sauce and crunchy thick bacon on top of a medium rare little burger, topped with vegetables and housed on a lovely little bun, that I wanted to just keep it in my mouth and not swallow ever. I'm sure everyone is glad that I moved on and swallowed before I dug into the fries and the manchego cheese fritters in a red pepper sauce. Yes.

The fritters rocked: tangy, a little sweet, crunchy and melty with the exotic Spanish cheese. In fact, if they were to have presented me with a basket of them (a la Chili's), instead of a plate of three, I would have eaten them all. Which I'm sure would have been attractive to Ben Affleck the waiter. Because, hello. I appreciate good food and it shows. In more ways than one.

Hey, this is "Ben". Thanks for the compliment and thanks for sharing a similar opinion about my look-alike. I guess he's friends with Matt Damon, though, so he can't be that bad, right? That's what I tell my self, anyway. It was good having you. Come on in again and I'll show you some of my favorites on the menu. Cheers, Joshua.
