Riordan's $20 Burger

New, 2 comments

A blogger goes head to head, or mouth to bun, with a one-pound burger from Riordan's downtown and feels conflicted. "The image of L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan that is stamped in my memory comes from the 1998 hunger strike by gardeners protesting a proposed ban on gas fueled leaf blowers. At a meeting five days after the strike began, Riordan showed up eating, in full view of the hungry gardeners, a burger from Bob's Big Boy. What a dick." The blogger still ate the burger, and it was delicious. [Metroblogging LA]
