I don’t know what possessed me to try the new McDonald’s McGriddle breakfast sandwich, but I wish I hadn’t. I had no idea that the “griddle” part is basically pancakes with artificial maple syrup, built in.

So, a sausage, egg & cheese McGriddle really is like eating a brick of crap- and it sits in your stomach for hours. Here is the break down:

Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles™:
7.0 oz (199 g),550 calories (300 from fat), & 33 grams of fat

Holy Jesus!

If You’re Going to San Francisco…

Presley and I are trying to plan a little 5-day trip to San Francisco this month– mostly because I’m being forced to take some time off, and I have a free ticket on United for anywhere in the lower-48.

We need to do this on the cheap, but neither of us have ever been west of Chicago.

I’ve heard that there are deals to be had on B&Bs, though I don’t even know what neighborhood in which to look– Soma? Union Square? Fisherman’s Wharf?

And where to eat? Where to go see a good Rock show? What museums to go to/avoid? Which wineries to hit? Anything to see in Silicon Valley?

Someone help!
