Let’s just get right to the meat of it…THEY CHARGE FOR WATER!  Dubbleyooteeeff mate?  See for yourself:

Is it a collector cup?  No.  Is the ice infused with herbal extract?  No.

Is it a collector cup? No. Is the ice infused with herbal extract? No.

I don’t have to garbl about paying for water because I’m sure everyone reading this is like “WHAT?  BUMP THAT.”  So I’ll just keep telling you about my stupid lunch.  I paid $9.95 for a regular “Hanky Panky” sandwich and soda.  Yes, you heard correctly.  $9.95.  But guess what?  If I wanted it heated, it would have cost $.50 more.  HORSESHIT.  Here’s my sandwich:

Whoa!  Calm down sandwich.  You're so big I don't know if I can finish you!

The “Hanky Panky” consists of turkey, cheese, lettuce, bacon, avocado and mayo.  I said no bacon but don’t for one second think they gave me a discount.  That would be whack.  The sandwich was aight.  I think it was smoked turkey because it had a sweet smoked funk to it but I could definitely tell all the ingredients were fresh like Dougie.  You can choose from four different kinds of bread: white (figures), wheat (farmer Dan), sourdough (we’re not in San Fran stop fronting) and jalapeno cheddar (ay ay ay!).  NOTHING warranted paying that much though.  My friend even said they looked at her funny when she went to get a napkin.  Like, “you gonna pay for that?”  The people that work there seem to have an attitude like “this is Uptown, I do what I want.”  The clientele is most def Uptowners – a mix of those that have jobs and wear cuff links and those that don’t have jobs because that would get in the way of them working out and shopping (thank you Daddy!)  I really don’t even want to go into more detail about this joint because I’d rather eat a Kashi granola bar and do bikram yoga.  This has nothing to do with the food blog but this chick is wearing yellow capri pants:

Why are you yellow, pants?

They call her Mellow Yellow

Any damn way, would I go back here?  No.  Because for the same price I can get a kickass pizza at Grimaldi’s right down the street (blog post coming soon!)

PS – Miley Cyrus makes me want to smoke crack.
