Do you have this list handy? I'd like to read the other 1,277 things that make your job great.
That kind of reminds me of when I was a counselor for summer camp kids and we took them to the life development center and the people told them to take how much toilet paper from the role that they used in the bathroom, then a few minutes later they said alright now count each ply that you have and for each one that you have tell me something about yourself. Some of those kids were pissed lol
Ever been to Raiford's in Memphis?
And even this has errors. Go with the stuffed chicken marsala. Trade the mashed potatoes for angel hair.
That is hilarious. At least you knew who either ate horribly or had a decent amount of fiber in their diet.
You want my real advice? Don't go to Olive Garden. But if you have to go there, the lasagna is among the better things I've had there.

Big fan of Curb as well, I thought last season was the best by far, hopefully theres a season 9, but I would have thought it would be out by now

There's always a long break between seasons of Curb. Season 8 just came out last year. It will probably be at least another nine months before another season comes out - that is, assuming there is one.
I've always felt that Olive Garden is just OK. There's actually much better Italian restaurants than OG. There's two small Italian restaurants in Chatt called Provinos and Tony's. Both of them have much, much better food, bread, and wine selections than Olive Garden, IMO.
Frank the Tank and his wife think the Olive Garder is "lovely."

They finally opened an Olive Garden up here in February. There were literally two hour waits for a seat for the first three months starting when the place opened. They're currently building a second one in the mall on the side of town I live in, and it will be packed as well once it opens.
I should point out that this happens every time a new restaurant opens here. Golden Corral, Chilis, Applebee's, TGI Fridays, Carl's Jr (they own Hardee's now), and DQ all set company records for first day/week/month sales when they opened here.
I went to Tony's in February - great food and atmosphere! It was kinda odd being downtown at night, because when I was a kid, you didn't go to downtown Chattanooga at night or on the weekends. Now it's much like going to the Mission District in San Diego or downtown Portland - great atmosphere, and the place is really hopping.
You know, I've always heard that back in the 70s and 80s, nobody ever went downtown, ever. The air quality was terrible, and it just wasn't very clean. You definitely can't say that now. Downtown Chatt is definitely hopping now. There's always something going on. We've got Brewfest coming up next month, which is very fun!
Sometimes I like to embrace my inner old lady, OKAY?? STOP JUDGING ME.
That was no urban legend, either. The police would even ask you why you were downtown. Back then, Riverbend and the Armed Forces Day parade were the two biggest events in terms of bringing people downtown. The vast majority of downtown (between the Choo Choo and the Aquarium) has been revamped since 1992, and from the perspective of someone coming back after 15+ years, it's a completely different place now, and I love it!
When I was a reporter, I covered race riots in downtown Chattanooga in the early '80s. It was like a war zone down there.
Back to the present, I love the Southern Brewers Festival. I'll be attending my second straight in August. Downtown Chattanooga is an extremely fun place.
It's two days BEFORE I fly down...
