|Four Cheese Vera's Burger|
This year, it has been a very very hot and dry summer so D was keen on seeing a show again. The selections this year where Singing in the Rain and Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat. We saw Joseph. On the way, we ordered takeout at Vera's as we did last year. We thought about doing something different but it is difficult to choose something in the West End that is conducive to a picnic in the area that we were in the mood for. Vera's is fast and portable. Well, it is, at least, when we don't get the double patties as I have done in the past. Mistake in the park!
I ordered the Four Cheese and D ordered the Classic BBQ. It is my annual burger out night. That is, we do not normally get true burger shack burgers very often. I might, if forced, order a veggie burger when all other options on the menu are carnivorous. Otherwise, we burger at home except about once a year at Vera's. Their Veggie burger is the 'fake meat' variety if you remember my post on Classifications of Vegetarian Burgers. But the patties they use are not overly simulated and do not included the gelatinous fake grissle.
Vera's Burgers' offer over 2 dozen standard and extra toppings. Visit their website to check them out.

The staff were all part-timers and rather indifferent about being there. Though it was virtually empty when I walked in, though full by the time I left, it took 20 minutes for a take out burger.
There is not alot to say about the show. It was not good. It was very amateur and the singing was either inaudible or off key. The only highlight were the children. There were quite a few talented children. The sound was horrible though so you could not even fully enjoy their singing. That is okay for the most part for a venue like this but their prices have gone up and this was not a 40$ show. Given the choice I would have paid 20-25$. I do not think I will go next year. We're going to have to find someother entertainment to have with our burgers next summer.
