Two more days down that road
Till Iím singiní with Willie in Peterborough

That's probably true Kodi! My last trip, I literally ate one veggie burger every day of the 18 day trip (except one day when I went to Chez Piggy in Kingston) and lost 5 lbs.

Well, I suppose in your honour, I'll have to try a Harvey's veggie burger. I'm not much into veggies, but I hear they are good.
Maybe you'll have to try a Lick's veggie burger too.

I bet you'll like it. It's not a "garden burger" where they mush up a bunch of vegetables into a patty shape. They're soy based and meant to be similar in taste and texture to a real hamburger patty. And if you doubt they really gave you a veggie burger, look at the shape of the patty. Their veggie burgers are shaped like a flower.

I haven't tried a Lick's. I'll check it out.

Unfortunately, I can't rhyme but looking forward to meeting you in two weeks time - say that sorta rhymes - at mini-GTG.

Re veggie burgers at Harvey's, a friend's friend, a vegetarian, ordered one and then took it back because she was convinced they'd given her meat in error - so try one whoever it is that hasn't.

I think you can rhyme!

I'm so looking forward to the mini-GTG and getting to meet you all in person.

I met a nice young woman in Kingston a couple years ago who told me about the shape of the patty - she was certain they were "duping" her also until they explained the difference.
