You also have to love how all three of his restaurant selections are high-end spots. Although, if you have the wherewithal to afford tickets to the game, maybe their menu prices aren't such a big deal. I've been to Sullivan's all of twice - once with my then-girlfriend (now-wife) for Valentine's Day and once with my office for Christmas. It is a good steak, but for my money I think Firebirds is just as good. I've never been to the Angus Barn or Saint-Jacques, but eek...taking a look at Saint-Jacques' menu, all of their dinner entrees are in the $25-$40 price range. A little pricey on a paralegal's salary!
Lastly, even though I don't really have a dog in the UNC-NC State-Duke rivalry since I'm an SEC guy, you have to love the snub to Duke when Amber asks which school Weekes backed - NC State, UNC, or Wake Forest? WTF? I think somebody needs to let Amber know that Wake's in Winston-Salem, not the Triangle.
