For $400 (the cost of four "unlimited pasta passes") I could buy enough ingredients to feed my family "Sunday dinner" for at least that long.

It is a gimmick, don't question it.

Who knew there was a black market for horrible food and that people were willing to pay more for it than regular
prices?

Olive Garden ... meh. They're having their day in the sun but will decline eventually. Even now, the parent company is ripping them for being too generous with the salad and breadsticks.

My favorite chain is having tough times. Friendly's is closing a whole bunch of restaurants, including all of the ones in the greater Uncensoredland area.
It wasn't fancy food, but it was our favorite place to go for an inexpensive but decent meal out with the family. And they didn't pretend to be something they weren't, the way Olive Garden pretends to be Italian food.

All the Friendly's but one closed in this area. You can still get their ice cream in the store but the stores
have closed.

People I know have gone to the local I'll Live Garden and they said it was horrible. More horrible than other
I'll Live Gardens they have been to. No one thought an Olive Garden would make it in this area but it seems to
be holding for now.

ugh... clarification:

You can still get their ice cream in the GROCERY store but the FRIENDLY'S stores have closed.

The Friendly's "restaurants" deserve to close. I left NJ in 2001, and even before that it was over five years before that when I was last dragged into a Friendly's.

Terrible service - terrible food - no atmosphere.

The ice cream stuff was good, though.

IG - Is the one in Mahopac remaining open?

We drove past it yesterday and it appeared open, but it appears to be listed as permanently closed.

They close one Friendly's years ago here and it became a local Restaurant. One Friendly's near my sister's
house and one local Friendly's were torn down and became Moe's Somewhat grills.

We are fantasizing about Friendly's locations being redeployed as Chick-Fil-A.
Yummers.

We are currently fantasizing about the possibilities for our local Friendlyses being redeployed as other types of restaurants. Yummers.

Five Guys, Perkins, Chick-Fil-A, Sonic, or a local diner that doesn't make my wife sick every time we go there.

You've got two localish diners. They both get Boo-Boo sick?

Chick-Fil-A is fairly established here on the Left Coast. Been to those a few times and always liked the food.

Sonic is out here, but I've not tried it.

Never heard of Five Guys. Is that the old Two Guys department store with three more partners?

Why go to Perkins when there's IHOP?!?!

We've already got an IHOP nearby; Perkins is well established as a family favorite here but there aren't any nearby. Chick-Fil-A has the absolute hyperyummiest chicken sandwiches anywhere, bar none, but we have to go to Pennsylvania or New Jersey to find one. They're building two in Danbury, CT which is good...

Sonic isn't anywhere in southern NY; that requires a trip to NJ.

"Five Guys Burgers and Fries" is fairly new. It's one of those burger places that's a couple of notches higher in quality than what the Big Three sell; they serve big burgers with customizable toppings, and fresh-cut fries. They seem to have expanded fast here in the northeast.

Next time you get to a Chick-Fil-A try the chicken strips and get a cole-slaw side. Absolutely wonderful - and you're not getting the excessive carbs from the sandwich bun!!

That's what I like to get at KFC, but KFC is to Chick-Fil-A (to paraphrase Blackadder) as excrement is to cream.
