Best.Date.Ever.

Last night Taylor and I got to be part of a focus group for Red Robin. What does that mean, you ask? Well, my friends, it means we got to taste test seven (count them - SEVEN) Red Robin burgers/sandwiches and tell this nice lady sitting at our table what we think about them. And it appears they're looking for a new bacon burger, because 6 of the 7 had bacon on them. Delicious applewood-smoked bacon. IT WAS AWESOME!

My love for the Robin is no secret. I love that place. So I was pumped when the lady called and told us we'd been selected. And the best part - we each got $25 gift cards. Although after eating almost 2 full burgers, and like 10 pieces of bacon, I think It'll be a little while before we go back. I could have thrown up on the way home (and it probably would have benefited me to do so) because I was so full.

So if the Cobb Chicken Burger or the Big Bold Bacon Burger end up on a RR menu - you're welcome. And if you're one of those people who supposedly hates this place, I question whether or not to talk to you anymore. Because you're crazy. (T&J!!)

Slim Fast all day for me. Totally worth it.


Behold the Whisky River BBQ Burger. The only one we tried that's already on the menu.

Wow! I have to admit that sounds like a great activity and a delicious burger! What a fun time!

hey, now! I always think it'll be a good idea to go, but I always regret it after. Is it really my fault? I can't help that my stomach rejects what should be a joy: hamburgers, fries and the best chocolate shakes I've ever had. I'm sorry to knock you're beloved. I really am. Let's go the next time we're in the same state.

So it takes you 2 whole burgers from Red Robin before you want to throw up. It only takes me 2 bites. :)

That is so cool! How did you get on that list to be selected? I'm so jealous. That sounds so fun.

And, $25 gift card? Sweet! Free future date nights. Gotta love that. :)

Mary Ann said...

Wow, how do you sign up for something like that?

That is Lauren's all time favorite place! We have one about a mile from our house and she is always asking to go. She thought the free sundae they gave me for my birthday was just the best thing ever and she can't wait to go for her birthday! Dave likes it too though cuz he likes the endless baskets of fries!
