IT'S TRUE, MARY HAS MOVED TO TOWN...
I was a bit skeptical when I read my friend, Tom's post about a new Hamburger Mary's opening in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. All of the others are located in much larger cities or areas with much larger gay populations. You can find Hamburger Mary's in places like San Fransisco, Palm Springs and West Hollywood. But to my surprise, it's true! Mary has moved in to Iowa.
Andrew and I were heading to Home Depot last weekend and decided to check out the location that was advertised on the website to see if there actually was a building under construction. Much to our surprise, there was a building. It even had a "Hamburger Mary's" sign on it, AND it was open! Huh? The first I'd heard of it was on Tom's blog. We'd seen no advertising leading up to it's opening.
We'll definitely check it out and give it a try. Having never eaten at a Hamburger Mary's, I don't really know what the menu is like. If it's good I'll support it. But, I must say, if it's not, the fact that it's a gay owned and markets to the LGBT community probably won't be enough for me to go back. Although, for those reasons, I do hope it is good and does well.
If any of you have been there before, give me a heads-up on what you think about it.
