Such bad timing!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the Dyson Air Blade! This is a state of the art hand dryer for public restrooms! Now you might say to yourself “what makes this s0 much better than a regular air hand dryer?” Well I’m going to tell you why this is a million times better then any other air hand dryer out there! The Dyson Air Blade is also the most sanitizing hand dryer also because it is automatic and you don’t have to push that metal button! So here’s how it works. You put your hands into this dryer and the hot air begins flying out through the vents in a straight motion much like how a fan blows air. When you’re done using it, I guarantee you that there will not be one single drop of water left on your hands! It really is amazing lol! I was using a public restroom earlier today and I wash my hands and then go to use the regular air hand dryer and when it was finished my hands we’re still wet! This will never happen when using the Dyson Air Blade! The Air Blade is also very fun to use! It’s starting to become popular, slowly but surely. They have them in Shake Shack in South Beach as well as at Ghirardelli stores & at the Universal Orlando Theme Park! Have you used the Dyson Air Blade yet? If so, leave a comment saying if you liked it or not!
So it’s 12:30am and my friends and I are driving down Miramar Parkway. We get to the corner of Miramar Parkway and University Drive and we stop at the red light. All of the sudden we see this Miramar Police car drive right through the red light with no lights on. We’re like “Ahhh what the fuck, cops always do that!” But then the cop stopped right in front of ihop. Next thing we know one more cop does the same thing and they both get out of the car with their guns drawn. Then out of no where 8 more cops show up! So naturally curiosity caught up with me and we decided to make a u-turn to check it out. That’s when we started filming it. We saw one guy on the ground and all of the cops had their guns drawn. So later on in the night we went back to that ihop for breakfast! Right away we asked the guy that worked there what had happened and he told us everything! Apparently this guy came into ihop with his gun drawn and told them to call the police! I thought this was incredibly weird, why would you walk into a place to rob it and tell them to call the cops? I mean, I’m not a robber or anything here but I don’t think you’re supposed to do that lol! Some people are just dumb! Anyways, somehow the cook and a customer got outside while the robber was still inside. The cops ran inside and got the guy, obviously!
So here’s my message to all of these criminals out there that think they can go commit crimes and not get away with it …. You’re stupid!!!! Cops these days are on their A-game! If you rob a store, you’re gonna get caught! If you murder someone, you’re gonna get caught! If it doesn’t happen when you do it, it will happen eventually! So stop committing crimes and just enjoy your life!
Nothing says American food like burgers and fries! It is estimated that Americans eat 14 billion burgers every year! Sorry cows! It is also estimated that the average american consumes about 29 pounds of french fries each year. The question always arises, where’s the best burger joint? Sure there’s tons of fast food burger places like McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys, & White Castle, but I’m talking about real burgers here. I’m sure you’ve heard of the huge burger chain “Five Guys.” They are everywhere these days and always get great reviews for having a great burger and freshly cut fries with the skins still on them that actually tastes like potatoes. If you live in New York or Miami you may have heard of another great burger joint that gets great reviews also called Shake Shack. I love to compare places to see which tastes better. So the question always rises between my friends and I, Five Guys or Shake Shack?
My friends and I got into a conversation one day about burgers and Five Guys came up. I said that I’ve had Five Guys in the past and thought it was okay, nothing too special to have me wanting to go back. So my friend told me about a brand new place on Lincoln Road in South Beach that opened up called “Shake Shack” and he said that it was amazing. So after hearing all of the hype, we decided to make a Sunday trip to South Beach to give Shake Shack a try. I was hooked right away! I thought the food tasted amazing and the atmosphere was very cool. I went back to Shake Shack several times because it was so good. However, after awhile the question came up again, Five Guys or Shake Shack? So I decided to revisit Five Guys after awhile of going to Shake Shack. So I’m going to give you my opinion! Let’s break it down!
Atmosphere: I think its cool that Five Guys has that neighborhood burger place feel where they scream out your order number, and how they keep it simple with the red and white checkered design. However, I think I’m going to have to give this one to Shake Shack. I think Shake Shacks atmosphere is cooler. The design of Shake Shack is very modern looking. I also like how they have rock music playing through the speakers and the design of the tables are cool too.
Price: When it comes down to price, I believe they are both about equal. Both places will run you between $9.00 – $12.00 for a burger, fries, and a drink.
Location: I love that Shake Shack is in South Beach on Lincoln Road. I think that’s a great location and makes for an amazing Shake Shack Sunday adventure. They also have them all across New York City including in CitiField. However, I have to give this one to Five Guys for right now because they are everywhere. Five Guys has 670 locations currently. Shake Shack has 7 locations currently. I don’t doubt that Shake Shack will one day be as big as Five Guys but they are still new.
Food: Five Guys is known for their huge greasy burgers with tons of toppings to choose from and their brown paper bag of fries. To be honest though, I wasn’t that impressed. Everyone likes a greasy burger but in my opinion Five Guys is a greasy sloppy burnt burger that falls apart. I do think that there fries taste like real potatoes and I like that they are freshly cut with the skins still on them but the last two times I had them they were kinda soft. I like crispy fries. Shake Shacks burgers on the other hand taste amazing. I don’t know what it is about their burgers but they taste so good. My guess is, it’s a combo of the quality of meat they use and the right amount of seasoning. They never taste burnt. I think the bun tastes way better at Shake Shack too. They may not have as much toppings as Five Guys but they still have a decent amount. I also think that the fries are awesome at Shake Shack. They are crinkle cut and always fried golden brown to perfection. I have never had a bad fry there. To top it off Shake Shack also has amazing shakes and custards which they call “concretes.” The “Key Lime Pie Oh My” is incredible and so is the “Black & White” shake.
Conclusion: In my opinion, Shake Shack is the winner here! I’m not saying Five Guys is horrible, but I am saying that I think overall Shake Shack is much better. Five Guys is good if you got that burger craving because they are usually close by. However, if you have time to go to Shake Shack, it’s well worth it! If you haven’t tried it, give it a try, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
I’d love to hear your feedback on this topic also! What do you think, Five Guys or Shake Shack?
Hello world! Welcome to my blog! I am an Independent Filmmaker & Music Video Director. I will be using this blog to keep everyone up to date with my projects and give everyone a nice little behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making a movie! I will also post articles on things I find to be interesting!
2011 is right around the corner!!! Time seems to go by a lot faster as you get older, at least for me anyways. 2010 feels like it went by so quickly. The new year means a lot of things. It’s a new year to hustle harder, make more money, accomplish more goals, travel to new places, try new things, learn as much as you can, and meet new people! I’m very excited for 2011. Make sure you have your game plan in place already! I already have 3 movies (“There Goes The Neighborhood” – “Sibling Robbery” – & “:Prefer Not To Say”) and 1 possible documentary (Hip-Hop Industry) lined up for 2011. I also plan to put out many more titles, write new material, add to my IMDb credits, and launch a brand new blog where people can comment! Make 2011 yours & don’t let it slip away!!!
“:Prefer Not To Say” is a short comedic film about the trials and tribulations of online dating and how three roommates use it to their advantage. Tonight we have finally completed the first draft of the screenplay! My co-writer Jordan Wapner and I came up with the idea to write a film about online dating in June of 2010. We immediately began writing the script in July once we had perfected our basic idea. I must say so far I’m really happy with what we have written. I truly believe that this is genius comedy here. I’m super excited for this project and I really believe that this is going to be a hilarious film when it’s finished! It has taken us 6 months to write this script but I enjoyed every minute of it! It will only be more fun from here on! As always, I’ll keep everyone posted with the progress of this film!
