I went to Bleeker St Burger’s new residence at Spitalfields Market on Saturday and had a serious contender for one of London’s best burgers. The very next day I went back and brought along my mother.

Introducing a new love to your parents on a second date is usually a bit too soon, but it just felt so right. High-res

YAY!

We found an authentic drive-in movie theater for our one night in San Luis Obispo!

BOO!

Playing that evening was Dolphin Tale 2 - a tediously harmless movie which has been described as a love story between a young boy and a high-maintenance fish.

PLOT!

A disabled dolphin called Winter gets depressed when his friend dies so needs to find another dolphin to bond with. Humans acquire a dolphin pal for him, naming her Hope. But then it turns out that Hope will only accept Winter when Winter wears his prosthetic tail.

SUMMATION!

Dolphins might be clever but they’re quite prejudiced.

RANDOM FACT!

It was directed by the same guy who directed Air Bud. He also acts and has a line early in the movie where he (as an Aquarium Inspector) cautions that peeling paint might fall into the aquarium (this plotline goes nowhere).

Attempting to visit all of the branches of burger chain Byron, I’ve kept a careful record of which restaurants I’ve been to, but which food I’ve tried from the menu is left largely up to my imperfect (Swiss-cheesed, if you will) memory.

With this in mind, I chose to cover my bases and order a cheeseburger with all of the six available cheese options.

What a beautiful behemoth of a burger! The slices of yellow-white cheese markedly thicker than the pink medium-rare patty.

Note that I had a Diet Coke as I’m trying to watch the calories.
