Received the results from our annual blood tests the other day and I’m pleased to report that it all looks good.

I stopped again and picked up their other burger offering, the American, with ketchup, fresh diced onions, lettuce, American Cheese, and Drop Sauce served on a potato roll. I also added jalapeño relish. Overall, both great burgers but I found the addition of the lettuce made a world of different. As Akemi put it: “Very refreshing!”
Any other smash burger fans out there?
The highlight of my day was an unexpected star sighting! Akemi and I were walking downtown when we spotted a celebrity – and one of my very favorite actors Roger Cross – who was kind enough to stop for a photo op…
