Last week, when we were in Raleigh, I received an email from Hardee's PR asking if I'd be available for an interview with Yes! Weekly about being the Burger Slayer. Of course I'd be available! So, the next day (last Friday), I received a phone call from Brian Clarey, who chatted with me for about 10 minutes. I didn't have a chance to mention that my coronation as Burger Slayer makes me the 2nd champion eater in the family now -- yarbiedoll won a jalapeño-eating contest a few years ago. I also failed to push my anti-DST platform. Even so, I'm really happy with the fun profile Brian put together and I had a great time being the subject of a newspaper interview.
We did either use or give away all of the free burger coupons. We depleted the stack on December 30, somewhere in South Carolina, on our way to Atlanta. I got to try the Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger, which I haven't seen around these parts in a while. It was pretty good, but the Jalapeño Thickburger is still my favorite.
Once again, thanks to all of you for voting for me to be the Burger Slayer and helping to make this all possible!
