    Almost Killed The Meal

    Almost Killed The Meal

    I’ve been in Los Angeles for the past couple of days at a conference, and had the pleasure of having dinner at The Grill on the Alley in Beverly Hills.

    The Grill is a really good steak and seafood house, and the meal was excellent.  Fortunately, I was not paying because it ain’t cheap eats.

    Right near the entrance was a Warning sign, because the powers that be cannot rest until they try to ruin your dining pleasure::
    WARNING
    Chemicals Known To The State Of
    Califormia To Cause Cancer, Or Birth
    Defects Or Other Reproductive Harm
     May Be Present In Foods
     Or Beverages Sold Or Served Here

    Hey, Professor, my wife and I had dinner a couple of nights ago at a seafood place on the Cape where, in accordance with Massachusetts law requiring a warning wherever raw seafood and such is served (e.g., oysters), the menu proclaimed that "The State of Massachusetts requires us to tell you that eating raw or undercooked food can cause disease and be hazardous to health."

    Underneath this warning, the restaurant proprietors added the comment:

    "But we don't think so!"

    Welcome to Los Angeles! Yep, those signs are ubiquitous, thanks to one of the many nanny-state initiatives passed by voters over the years. You find them in the silliest places, like the door to my apartment building. (Makes you want to move right in, doesn't it?)

    And thanks for the recommendation of The Grill; I'll have to give it a try – after I take out a loan. 🙂

    "State requires mandated warnings that you not breathe the air or drink the water." –LL

    Laughing. Out. Loud. I just got a vision of Tom Lehrer singing "Pollution" (here is the first verse:
    If you visit American city
    You will find it very pretty
    Just two things of which you must beware:
    Don't drink the water
    and don't breathe the air!

    No doubt he was a environmental progressive, albeit a clever, satirical one….but I digress.)

    LA is "very pretty" after all….. 😀

    I apologize for our alarming welcome.

    I hope you spent lots of money while you were here. :>
