“Easy to see why @bgrburgerjoint is empty. Blaring x-mas music and $15 for dinner is extreme, including $2.29 fountain soda.”

—Local tweeter @BrianKal documents last night’s visit to Mark Bucher’s BGR The Burger Joint.

Bucher’s rejoinder: “@BrianKal thx for the note. If you hurry mcdonalds [sic] has a dollar menu. I think you can get dinner for under 5.”

And later: “@BrianKal tx. Please don’t come back …”
