BEST OVERALL: 5 Guys.  Taste like potato wedges – crispy but soft inside, good thickness, good seasoning and good amount of salt.  However, this amazing experience does come at a certain price…$5 for a large fry, to be exact. BEST NOVELTY: AJ’s funnel cake fries.  It’s like if a diner was owned by an ex-carnival person […]

Films emulate high school life

1. The Breakfast Club What do you get when you mix detention and a group of kids with nothing in common? A fantastic classic. This is probably John Hughes’s most famous film, and for good reason too. In this movie, the beauty queen, the nerd, the rebel, the jock and the basket case all come […]
