Today’s cautionary tale of anger is likely as much about pride as the $170 that put the lives of five people at risk. The Kansas City Star has the tale of an alleged robbery yesterday that led to a car accident that led to a car theft. It’s the horrible adult version of the nursery rhyme about swallowing a spider.

Fat City caught up with Venus Van Horn, who owns and operates the MMT with her partner, Ceasar Reyes, to learn about the new collaboration with Czar.
So, when it comes to dishes that are a mishmash, rehash of the same basic ingredients (pick sauce, cheese and "soft" pasta), it's a diner or chef question. Are the fat and sugar cravings of Olive Garden's diners really driving the future of chain food? Or are the Friday night diners not being given enough credit because of the (potentially insulting but quite possibly true) assumption by corporate chefs and marketers that eaters aren't ready for dramatic changes?

What is your sidekick? Definitely my trusty, two-keys-missing, beaten-to-crap keyboard.
What career would you choose in an alternate reality? Definitely a teacher. A terrible, often-mocked, bearded teacher.
I was unhappy about all the restaurants that closed in Kansas City in 2011 but particularly the end of the beloved Peachtree Buffet — the original venue on Eastwood Trafficway — one of the finest examples of Southern cooking in the metro and a real bargain to boot. (The Willis family, who operated the buffet, has opened a new sit-down restaurant in the same complex serving, by most accounts, the same tasty cuisine.)
But the metro isn't without soul-food restaurants and buffets. There's the fabulous Papa Lew's Soul Delicious at 2128 East 12th Street. And a new discovery — to me, anyway — that frequent Fat City commenter Dillo suggested that I visit: DelHi's Southern Cuisine Buffet at 8055 State Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas.
The restaurant, owned by a quartet of friends, including Edna and Linton Donnell, has operated in a strip center on State Avenue for the last two years, serving lunch and dinner in a dining room painted the color of raspberry sherbet. It serves a slightly more elaborate array of soul-food specialties than Papa Lew's, and everything I tasted was delicious.
Dewey's Pizza (in Ohio and St. Louis), crust is doughy and light, toppings are amazing,…
Pappadeaux, Whataburger, Raising Cane's, Krystals
Portillos, Goodtimes burgers from Denver, Maggianos,
Chovy's Italian from Meadville, PA!
Is there going to be a parade?
