    Thanks for the mention! We had a great time researching the infographic and were pretty surprised at some of the facts we dug up. Like Tony Bourdain - we think he's worth a heck of a lot more than some of the other food personalities! Just sayin'.

    Thank you for the chart, Fast Food V. Wine. Now I know that that I should give up on the food, and just go for the wine. I'd actually much rather drink four and half glasses of wine than eat a large fry. On that same note, Friendly's french toast is over 2,000 calories. Wow. I haven't been to a Friendly's since I was, like, 5, but I feel like I should make the trip back just to try that. It must be really sweet.

    Oh, and the restaurant/hotel thing. Foodies was bad enough, but roomies? Really? Hotels already have included eateries that charge an arm and a leg. Replace those with a pricey steakhouse or really well prepared food from a well-known chef, and you might actually get more people to eat there. I don't see how that's a big story, though.
