So I have the website just about fixed.  I actually had to write this from another computer!  Anyhow, might not see a new strip until Friday, we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

In the meantime, a quick restaurant review.  The Missus and I hit Bareburger as part of my little tour of Montclair.  It’s designed as a super organic eatery, but with fun burgers in fries.  But the appeal is, you get any meat you want:  Beef, chicken, elk, bison, boar, duck—  They pretty much had it all.

I got a boar burger with duck bacon on it.  Gotta say, it was pretty outrageous and tasty.  Unfortunately, it was also kinda small.  Everything is sold ala carte, so getting fries and onion rings was extra.  Our waiter was fairly attentive, but it was hard to get an iced tea refill.  And even the glasses were kind of small.

Still, it was tasty enough that we split a sundae.  I liked it, but it’s the sort of place I wouldn’t go unless I was rolling in cash and didn’t mind dropping $50 on burgers and fries for two.  Maybe if I’m dying to try elk, I’ll be back.  Otherwise, Manny’s Diner is just across the street.

Bareburger gets  7.5 out of 10 keggers.
