hmm interesting.. theres a place here in NYC called Pete's Burger.. or Petey.. whatever.. but I was surprised to see that their burger is 4.49 and their fries are about the same price.. I would never again buy from that place.. not only because of the price but it just seems like their fries and burger are something I can make myself at home.. their fries especially.. not worth the price.

I can think of a few places where a burger and fries can total above $11. Now McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys, etc. are usually less than $8 with a ~32oz drink.

I agree that people should decide what they do, but apart from that, whatever happened to drinking plain water? Its the best to kill your thirst in my opinion.

Re: Large Soft Drinks To Be Illegal In New York

While personally I'm with you, most people I know find water to be insufferably bland
