How are things? Good, good. Yeah, here too. Uh-huh.
Anyhoo, we were wondering if you would be willing to send Lunchbox Laboratory over to Wallingford? I mean, given that we have Not A Number and we’re getting Archie McPhee’s from you, the whole kitschy-laboratory / 70’s lunchbox theme thing is just a much better fit for us than it is for you, especially the way you have it stashed way up 15th near the Sands strip club.
I know, I know, we have a lot of great places to eat already, like Joule, Sutra, Cantinetta, and Tilth, but we don’t have that many places to just grab a bite. Yeah, sure there’s Dick’s, but the Deluxe is no match for LL’s Dork (Duck-Pork) or Lawrence Velk (Venison-Elk) burgers, and the vegetarian options at Quizno’s just aren’t in the same league as LL’s amazing Red Quinoa-Falafel burger. Oh, and those sweet potato fries, we could eat a bucket of ’em.
We would be willing to make it worth your while. We have more Thai restaurants on 45th alone then you have in your entire neighborhood, and even more places that sell frozen desserts than that (Mooberry? Puh-leeze! It’s frozen yogurt.)
Please, Ballard, don’t make this harder than it needs to be. We have room on our streets and in our hearts for Lunchbox Laboratory. It’s time to let go.
