Hunger Pains

It's about 5:30 in the morning and I've already been up for an hour.

I've got to kick this insomnia bit.

Lately, I've been hopping online to entertain myself while I struggle with sleeplessness, purusing around my favorite "corners" of the blogosphere.

This go around I've been checking out Julie and Polly and Drinking Liberally and a bunch of other blogs that everyone else is reading, and now I'm starving.

Lots of folks are buzzing about the venue that's expected to take up the space vacated by Oakley's Chili Company. Apparently Fatburger has a grand plan to bring their big, beefy burgers to the neighborhood (I've seen all the renovations and confirm it sure looks like the kind of place featured on the website - click here to read about the GM the job opening ), and now my 5:30-in-the-morning stomach is dying for a big 1/3 pound burger with bacon, cheese and all the trimmings.

Oooh. Cheesefries. Oooh. Hand scooped shakes.

Sounds similar to Steak n' Shake (which I must confess has inspired Yours Truly to make a late-night drive thru run or two), but I really don't know much about the reputation of their burgers.

This might call for a taste test.

Not really good for a gal trying to cut her calorie intake, but hey, that's what water's for.

We could go together and split a meal! :)

Better split it with three friends. I'm looking at the nutritional info, the Fatburger 590 calories 31 grams of fat. Kingburger 850 calories 41 grams of fat. The chocolate milkshake 910 calories and 45 grams of fat.
Chipotle is looking healthy to me now.
