Top 10 Resolutions We'd Like To See Fulfilled
Maybe in 2010, they'll just let us eat rabbits.
A new year, another chance to set things right.
It's why some people announce personal goals this time of year, right? Few carry them through for the entire 12 months, however. In fact, only the easiest resolutions--add more flab, drink cheaper booze, exercise the credit cards--manage to hold our attention more than a couple weeks.
Still, there are some resolutions that deserve full force commitment. We want to see them played out to the end, however difficult.
Of course we're talking about resolutions made by other people.
So to kick off the new year, we offer our list of resolutions we'd like to see other people make--and keep.
10. Food Nazis: "We resolve to get a life...and let other people live theirs"
We wanted to say this a little differently, but then we've resolved not to use those words quite as often. Instead, we'd like to hear crusaders for low fats, raw foods, pro-bee, ethical or whatever foods give us a 'what the hell--nothing wrong with people eating thick steaks or processed foods if they want.'
9. Marc Cassel: "I'm going to go the distance"
That's right, he has the iconic white goatee. Now beef up the torso, buy a white suit and do the Colonel Sanders bit properly.
8. The owners of Tre Amici: "We will settle once and for all on a concept"
OK, it's still an Italian (kinda) steakhouse. But in one year this space has gone from Fruia's Tre Amici to Tre Amici Roadside Grill (or something) to...um, who the hell knows just what they call it now. Give it a rest.
7. The new owners of Bob's: "We will re-focus on the kitchen"
As owner Bob Sambol's problems spiraled out of control, he allowed an average steakhouse to slip below the Outback line. Now, we know big spenders don't know any better--and we're all for a restaurant taking their cash. But we'd also like to see a place prosper because their kitchen turns out buttery red meat and beautifully prepared sides. Get after it.
