I smell something, and it's not steak
AP recently bowed to his fear of "weird" food and reviewed the new lunch offerings at Ruth's Chris steak house in the Bee. I started to get deja vu as my eyes skimmed over the snoreworthy sentences. Didn't Mike Dunne already review Ruth's Chris? Why yes he did! And his review (from way back in '05) is so similar to a press release that Ruth's Chris have it posted on their website! Wow, and an article on friday about suburban richies who drop 100 bucks on steak to eat in front of their flatscreen ALSO mentions the new lunch hours at Ruth's Chris. And a somewhat recent blog post from Mike Dunne mentions the new lunch hours as well. Doesn't it seem a bit unusual that a chain's restaurants decision to open for lunch would be so newsworthy that the Sacbee would mention it three times? Hmm...I wonder if Ruth's Chris spends much money advertising with the Bee? Nah, probably not.
