Sometimes When You Need a Win, Bacon Will Do
The other night, I ordered a grilled chicken cobb salad to go from Tender Greens, one of my favorite L.A. eateries. After a day of serial disappointment, I just wanted to be comforted by some smoky, salty bacon. But when I got home, I couldn't find the bacon. I tossed the lettuce around. I flipped the chicken over. I even held the plastic, see-through, carry out container up to the light just in case I had somehow missed the bacon. Alas, there was none. This probably wouldn't be devastating on any normal day. But this was a particularly shitty day. And I needed a win. So I tweeted:
And Tender Greens tweeted back:
Why thank you.
No hard feelings. People make mistakes. And bad things happen to good people (me). But seriously though...

Thanks, Tender Greens.
I reverse bacon-shamed a restaurant and won. I'm both proud and ashamed.
