Hi, all!

The Canadian Premier League bought a Cameo from Fabrizio Romano to preview the announcement of a new expansion team.

Ramble of the Day

A Hoddler once made a comment that this space turns into a food blog during the international break. I don’t know if it was ever a conscious choice before, but it officially is now. Here’s a fun question from Twitter that I think is worth sharing:

I’m stealing this answer from my younger sister, because it’s a good one: The Cheesecake Factory.

The Cheesecake Factory serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks. Their breakfast is slightly limited, but expands for weekend brunches, and I’m sure their coffee is acceptable. As for the rest of the day, the menu is stupidly large. I will have as much variety as one restaurant chain could possibly offer, so I won’t get bored. (Side note: I’ve watched a lot of episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and this menu probably should not be this big.)

I haven’t eaten at a Cheesecake Factory in a while, but it was an acceptable meal the last time I was there. (Note: It has been a very long time since I’ve eaten at a Cheesecake Factory.) There aren’t a ton of top quality restaurant chains to choose from, so I always felt I’d be sacrificing a little bit of quality here. Variety is key for me, and The Cheesecake Factory has it.

tl;dr: Pick a chain restaurant you’d eat at for every meal if you had to.
