Burger

blog_burgersOver the summer I've visited the restaurant Burger on Mission Street three times.  Every time I'm there I always end up loving the place a little bit more. The two big burger places I've been told about recently are Betty Burger, which is located in many places throughout Santa Cruz, and Burger.

For me, what places Burger aside from Betty's or any other place I know of is its environment. Once you walk in, you're confronted with one of the most creative menus around. All their entrees are named after popular celebrities or characters. I've ordered "The Dude," a burger with jack cheese, avocado, and bacon, the  "Johnny Marzetti" which is a burger with macaroni piled on, and the "Phatty" a burger with grilled cheese sandwiches for buns.

The walls of Burger are colorful and reflect the burgers they sell. One wall contains gold painted frames with no pictures inside of them, probably gathered from yard sales. The men's bathroom has a mural on one of the walls depicting zombie's craving burgers. A bar is located in the restaurant selling from mostly Santa Cruz brewers.

What's most important about Burger is that its food is delicious. Their website says, "Burgers. Ingredients Matter." You can tell they mean that by the food they serve you. The ground beef they use comes from grass-fed cows and you can choose from either shoestring or sweet potatoes fries.

But you forgot to mention how the burgers come out so fast (and not hot) that it arouses the suspicion that these are pre-cooked. Also, even if you ask for your burger to be MR, it still comes out cool and MW, the default mode. If they could cook to order, this place would be the best burger joint in the known universe. Right now, it's just ok.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
