me too! finished off a long week with another long day - 6th day in a row at the gym, 50ks of riding, and an afternoon of lectures. only one thing is gonna get this scowl off my face - swapping out of these ridiculous gym clothes and into some ih. (photo credit to my long-suffering girlfriend)
oh, and going out for burgers! i used to play in a band called whalehammer
with rich and scott (dave, the fourth member, eloped to SF and now plays in rank xerox, amongst other bands
) and we remain good friends, and all appreciate a good burger. anyway, we head out to a hole-in-the-wall burger joint called novembar and rock up just as they're turning off the burners. thankfully they heat up the hotplates for us to get the last burgers of the night...
the dude who runs the place, minh, is a self-confessed burger tragic and burger enthusiast. he's all about pushing the extremes of the burger, and one look at the menu confirms this ( 1 2 3
he also runs a couple of contests - finish the spiciest burger in ten minutes and get it free; take longer and pay double - or the man vs fat-boy burger, where you pay by the minute taken to complete it. we opt for safer choices, although scott decides to get two burgers (just after telling us that extreme hunger often causes him to make irrational menu choices. oh well).
note the scale model of the "to the roof" burger. and yes, it has been made before!

burgers come out...
note the signature star-shaped bun. i opted for the triple cheese...
... and demolished it with ease
afterwards, we head down to the foreshore and sink a couple beers. starts out like this
and soon the worries of the week have faded away. until next time...
