I will be announcing my choice for lunch today at 1:00 (EST). Will it be Indian buffett, Pizza, Wendys, or the maybe even the dark horse Au Bon Pain? Tune in to this thread to find out. All MGoPoints will be donated to charity
OT: Special Announcement at 1:00 (EST)
I think Wendys makes the most sense for you. The $1 menu provides a strong supporting cast for any of the featured menu items.
You can't beat the $2.99 value meals either. Wendy's, it's a slam dunk.
I donated a buck to the Dave Thomas Foundation on my last trip to Wendy's and they gave me this little keychain thing that scores me a free Jr Frosty on every visit for the rest of the year. Go Wendys!
yeah but keep in mind that I grew up next to an Au Bon Pain
I say the wild card, Blimby Burgers.
What's Blimby Burgers?
Independent sources close to the situation have been telling me that Wendy's is the most likely choice all morning, specifically a spicy chicken combo, as the fries and soft drink will pair well with the choice.
As of writing this, it has been learned that Pizza has mad a strong late morning push and now appears to be the frontrunner at the moment. Although, going with this pick would leave him with less options to compliment the meal.
Does this decision depend on where other diners go? You wouldn't want to be overshadowed by another superstar eater.
My sources tell me that Wendy's somehow has found enough meat to get the two guys in the drive through lane and MAgoBLUE in without going over the meat cap.
You said "meat cap". +1.
30 mins of unadulterated speculations... GO!
My sources tell me that two coworkers MAgoBlue wanted to have lunch with have decided on Au Bon Pain.
But I saw MAgoBlue wearing a Wendy's hat after his last visit...
To the untrained eye, this could seem like a Wendy's lean. However, through the eyes of a dining guru this is obvious posturing. MAgoBlue is simply trying to convince Au Bon Pain to put the French Onion Breadbowl on special this afternoon.
However, there is also talk of a dine-and-trade in which Wendy's would serve MAgoBlue a Jr Frosty (thus maximizing his financial dessert situation -- an option that Au Bon Pain cannot offer) and then deal him to Au Bon Pain in exchange for two prospects rumored to be loitering outside of Au Bon Pain while looking hungry this afternoon.
Why was the thread locked for the past two hours?
for drama buildup!
Au Bon Pain would be best, even though Wendy's sure does sound good and cheap!
Wendy's is only good for one meal, but pizza is the meal that keeps on giving. If you're looking for multiple meals (later for dinner, cold in the morning for breakfast, lunch again tomorrow), the choice has to be pizza. Just too many possibilities for future success to pass on pizza.
Unless it's all about the money...then it's Wendy's.
One - Dave Thomas was in the same fraternity I was in. Frat on.
Two - The best joke I know to tell (clean joke, at least) is this:
Q: Why does Wendy's have square patties?
A: Because Dave Thomas does NOT CUT CORNERS!
Well, Wendy's has to be considered the favorite at this point in time. If he goes to Wendy's for the spicy chicken combo, GM MAgoBLUE will still have the cap room to attract two other big time FAs: Cup 'O Chili & Chocolate Frosty. That's a helluva contender for the Eastern Conference, should that happen.
Unfortunately, that leaves little spending room for bench players. He may have to settle for the small fries.
I'm hearing that large fries are a must with the proposed Wendy's deal, and also that a frosty is willing to take a midlevel exception in the deal.
Actually Beavis I'm copying a bit I heard on a local radio show. I don't Twitter and haven't read Simmons' new article yet
Butt out, Beavis.
I'm just sayin'.
I have an inside source telling me that you will be delaying your decision to a later date...
I want to thank MGoBlog for agreeing to broadcast this announcement. As you all know the past few hours have been a very crazy time for my family and I. I wanted to make sure I found a restaurant who could satisfy my hunger and quench my thirst. A lot of really great restaurants made their candidacy known to me but in the end I decided to go where I would feel most comfortable and have the best chance for a successful lunch. That's why I have decided to eat at Indian Castle. (puts on an Indian Castle bib amid a flurry of photograph flashes). Their lunch time buffett gives me the best opportunity to stuff my face, their air conditioning is top notch, and it's a short walk from my office. I am confident that I have made the right decision and I can't wait to get started on that buffett!
All the Wendy's employees cry in their frosties and head for the tallest buildings...
I hope the Indian Castle buffett is out of everything you like.
Wow, this was an unexpected upset. I didn't really even think Indian Castle was a contender. From all of my outside sources I thought Wendy's was almost a certaintly. With this choice I think Indian Castle will be a restaurant to keep an eye on the rest of the year.
To be completely honest, go with the Indian Buffet. For my money, there's nothing better than some chicken tikka masala, with a little garlic naan and rice. I'm as serious as I've ever been right now. If I were dying, that would be my request.
Just go to the Golden Corral. Between morbid obesity and disgusting habits, you'd be a superstar in the making. Plus, you'd natually get NASCAR sponsorships.
No wonder we Americans have an obesity problem.
But what will you do regarding the upcoming FDA imposed sanctions against Indian Castle? If major sanctions are imposed and you are released from your dining intent, where will you go next?
I demand that the MGoBlog Commissioner open an investigation.
This is B.S. MAagoBlue is completely over-shadowing my big lunch news with this "Desperate need for attention" MGoConference.
I signed a one-day lunch contract with California Pizza Kitchen prior to his over-hyped media blitz. Anyone intersted in the details? Didn't think so.
As soon as I read this post I thought 'This is going to be a very divisive lunch announcement.'
I was right...
MAgoblue was never a true Wendy's man anyway. Have fun at Indian Castle jerk, Wendy's is a traditional tasty powerhouse and you'll regret not being a part of our rise to fast food domination!!!1!
