Pound Sign

New York City, pop culture, art and nightlife. Because nobody else is blogging about those things.

We, as a nation, can only hope to top it in 2011

Well, I didn't quite get to my New Year's post ON 1/1/11, mostly the result of recovering from running the New Year's Eve After-Party at Joe's Pub until 5 in the morning...but anyway, now's the time when bloggers are required to post some kind of wrap-up list for the year just passed! And like every year I struggled to think of my own spin on that tradition, and again this year I frankly found a list compiled elsewhere that really got to the core of the whole transition thing better than I ever could. So, for your reading pleasure, condensed to just the names because frankly, read off in a straight list they have a rather amazing cumulative effect, is Advertising Age magazine's list of 2010's Most Over-the-top Menu Offerings:

10. Denny's Fried Cheese Melt
9. Friendly's Ultimate Grilled Cheese Burger Melt
8. KFC's Double Down
7. Friendly's Mac and Cheese Quesadilla
6. Hardee's Loaded Biscuits 'n' Gravy
5. Burger King's Ultimate Breakfast Platter
4. Sonic's Tex Mex Footlong Quarter Pound Coney
3. Carl's Jr. Foot-Long Cheeseburger
2. Sonic's Holiday Sugar Spiced Cookie Blast
1. Hardee's Double Sausage Egg 'n' Cheese Biscuit

Enjoy your New Year's diet resolution, everyone!
