n the TLC channel, you can watch a woman drinking her own urine and a man making love to his car. On A&E, you can watch hoarders living in feces-ridden, roach-infested homes while their children plead for them to get help. On truTV, you can watch people desperate for cash selling their possessions on “Hardcore Pawn” – and watch the owners of the pawn shop call each other a string of obscenities when they’re not doing it to customers. After Sept. 11, 2001, experts in the entertainment industry were predicting the death of reality TV in favor of more uplifting, positive programming. The events of that day were so horrific, it was assumed that viewers would eschew the backstabbing, name-calling, masochistic themes that had proliferated television in favor of more thought-provoking subject matter. Yeah, right. Reality shows are not only more plentiful than they were in 2001, they’re more sensationalistic, appealing to the lowest common denominator. It was one thing to watch criminals being busted on “Cops” or contestants on “Fear Factor” and “Survivor” eat bugs and cow brains – one could at least argue in both instances that the subjects brought it on themselves by committing crimes in the former or by competing for a massive payout in the latter. Now we’re watching everyday people dealing with deeply personal issues, from teen pregnancy and drug addiction to mental disorders and divorce, all on camera for others’ amusement. As we become inured to a certain type of reality TV – as the shocking becomes commonplace, even boring – the envelope is pushed ever further to drive ratings up. Is this what we’ve been reduced to? A society of voyeurs that revel in the misery of others? Does it make us feel better about ourselves – thank God we don’t live like that, we’re not that stupid, we have more self-control? It could never happen to us. Right? One could argue that these shows help people deal with their disorders by giving them professional help. One could also argue that, hey, they agreed to be on camera, and they likely received payment to boot. But at what cost? Now that they’ve aired their dirty laundry in the most public of forums, how will that affect the rest of their lives, their relationships, their careers? What about their children, who as minors have no say in the matter? What do they think when they watch the show and hear people talking behind their backs in one-on-one interviews? This isn’t “Candid Camera” or “Real People” or even “The Real World.” This is a freak show. The only difference is that instead of paying to watch a sideshow attraction at a carnival, we’re paying a cable company to have it broadcast into our homes. But because reality shows are cheap to make, it’s unlikely that they’re going to go away soon. At least, unless we’re willing to avert our eyes and say, “Enough.” I’d like to know what you think. Do you think reality TV has gone too far? Or do you think I’m over-reacting? Email me at the address below, and I’ll feature your reactions in a future column.

Lucky y u There’s a great variety of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for Mainers to enjoy this year. By RAY ROUTHIER Staff Writer


hey say everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Some folks more than others. Take, for example, the parade- and festival-happy residents of Bath, who started a weeklong St. Patrick’s Day-themed celebration four years ago called Bath Blarney Days. The week starts with smaller events around town, such as pub sing-alongs and Irish trivia nights. But the real pot o’ gold comes on St. Patrick’s Day, with a schedule of events that includes a road race, a parade, a tug of war, an Irish soda bread baking contest, live music and the Blarney Ball dance at night. So Bath must be a city with a rich Irish heritage, right? Like Portland? “Not so much,” said Jennifer Geiger, director of Main Street Bath, an organizer of the Blarney Days events. “It started when Byrnes Irish Pub opened up, and they came to us and wanted to start a St. Patrick’s Day Parade. “It’s grown, and now the thought behind it is, ‘Hooray, it’s finally the end of winter and we can get outside and get the community together to have fun.’ ”

Hard to argue with that philosophy. Whether you want to be part of a spring festival, watch a parade, hear Irish music, eat corned beef or see Irish dancing, there’s plenty of St. Patrick’s Day options for you this year around southern Maine. Below is a list of some of the St. Patrick’s Day events. Check with your favorite bar, restaurant or pub to see what they might have planned, as well. All events listed below are for Saturday. n BRIAN BORU LOCAL IRISH FESTIVAL: 6 a.m. to closing, Brian Boru, 57 Center St., Portland. Free. This venerable Irish pub in Portland, in the bright-red brick building, has events all day long, beginning with a traditional Irish breakfast at 6 a.m. Guinness and whiskey will be available. Other events include: Traditional Irish music at 7:30 a.m.; poetry by Ireland natives at 9:30 a.m.; roaming bag pipers at 11 a.m.; Stillson School Irish Dancers from noon to 1 p.m.; a variety of pop and rock music beginning at 1:30 p.m.; and Irish food on the menu all day.

n BULL FEENEY’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY 2012: 6 a.m. to 1 a.m., Bull Feeney’s, 375 Fore St., Portland. 773-7210;

"Bonanza" by Foam Castles is a gori#POBO[BwCZ'PBN$BTUMFTJTBHPS geous indie-pop record, a big, beautiHFPVTJOEJFQPQSFDPSE BCJH CFBVUJ ful slice of reverb-drenched hooks and GVMTMJDFPGSFWFSCESFODIFEIPPLTBOE dreams. Everything echoes on this album, ESFBNT&WFSZUIJOHFDIPFTPOUIJTBMCVN  from the double-tracked vocals and the GSPNUIFEPVCMFUSBDLFEWPDBMTBOEUIF crashing cymbals to the guitars that buzz, DSBTIJOHDZNCBMTUPUIFHVJUBSTUIBUCV[[  ring and soar - sometimes within the SJOHBOETPBSoTPNFUJNFTXJUIJOUIF confines of one song. The reverb gives DPOmOFTPGPOFTPOH5IFSFWFSCHJWFT the record a late-'60s psychedelic vibe, UIFSFDPSEBMBUFTQTZDIFEFMJDWJCF  but without sacrificing traditional song CVUXJUIPVUTBDSJmDJOHUSBEJUJPOBMTPOH structure or catchiness. TUSVDUVSFPSDBUDIJOFTT Foam Castles has managed to produce 'PBN$BTUMFTIBTNBOBHFEUPQSPEVDF the rarest of albums: one to listen to on UIFSBSFTUPGBMCVNTPOFUPMJTUFOUPPO headphones and get completely lost in, IFBEQIPOFTBOEHFUDPNQMFUFMZMPTUJO  but also one that will have you tapping CVUBMTPPOFUIBUXJMMIBWFZPVUBQQJOH your foot and singing along. ZPVSGPPUBOETJOHJOHBMPOH The hints of psychedelia are not so 5IFIJOUTPGQTZDIFEFMJBBSFOPUTP much of the late-'60s-San Francisco NVDIPGUIFMBUFT4BO'SBODJTDP variety (there are no freak-out jams or WBSJFUZ UIFSFBSFOPGSFBLPVUKBNTPS overly long instrumental passages). Even PWFSMZMPOHJOTUSVNFOUBMQBTTBHFT &WFO though Foam Castles hails from Portland, UIPVHI'PBN$BTUMFTIBJMTGSPN1PSUMBOE  the band mostly conjures up images of UIFCBOENPTUMZDPOKVSFTVQJNBHFTPG swinging London circa 1967. That sense TXJOHJOH-POEPODJSDB5IBUTFOTF of joy and whimsy, with a hint of melanPGKPZBOEXIJNTZ XJUIBIJOUPGNFMBO choly that the British bands of that period DIPMZUIBUUIF#SJUJTICBOETPGUIBUQFSJPE pioneered, is nearly perfected here. QJPOFFSFE JTOFBSMZQFSGFDUFEIFSF The opening track, "Basement Dot," 5IFPQFOJOHUSBDL i#BTFNFOU%PU w starts things off in fine fashion, with chimTUBSUTUIJOHTPGGJOmOFGBTIJPO XJUIDIJN ing guitars, a soaring chorus and a bit of JOHHVJUBST BTPBSJOHDIPSVTBOEBCJUPG New Wave-esque synthesizer. /FX8BWFFTRVFTZOUIFTJ[FS "Passin' " will make a terrific driving i1BTTJOwXJMMNBLFBUFSSJmDESJWJOH song for your summer road trips, and the TPOHGPSZPVSTVNNFSSPBEUSJQT BOEUIF almost pastoral "As Far as I Go," with its BMNPTUQBTUPSBMi"T'BSBT*(P wXJUIJUT acoustic strumming and keyboards that BDPVTUJDTUSVNNJOHBOELFZCPBSETUIBU sound like a string section, is the quintesTPVOEMJLFBTUSJOHTFDUJPO JTUIFRVJOUFT sential Sunday-afternoon soundtrack. TFOUJBM4VOEBZBGUFSOPPOTPVOEUSBDL "My Merona" is as close to a straight-up i.Z.FSPOBwJTBTDMPTFUPBTUSBJHIUVQ rocker as Foam Castles gets on this alSPDLFSBT'PBN$BTUMFTHFUTPOUIJTBM bum, with guitars and vocals mixed right CVN XJUIHVJUBSTBOEWPDBMTNJYFESJHIU up front and barely a hint of reverb until VQGSPOUBOECBSFMZBIJOUPGSFWFSCVOUJM the scorching guitar solo.

As a teenager, Jenko (Channing Tatum) "TBUFFOBHFS +FOLP $IBOOJOH5BUVN  was a popular jock prone to slamming XBTBQPQVMBSKPDLQSPOFUPTMBNNJOH kids into lockers and doling out nippleLJETJOUPMPDLFSTBOEEPMJOHPVUOJQQMF twisters. Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a hapUXJTUFST4DINJEU +POBI)JMM XBTBIBQ less nerd with a bleached-blond Eminem MFTTOFSEXJUIBCMFBDIFECMPOE&NJOFN bowl haircut and braces large enough for CPXMIBJSDVUBOECSBDFTMBSHFFOPVHIGPS Iron Man to envy. *SPO.BOUPFOWZ Seven years later, the two men are now 4FWFOZFBSTMBUFS UIFUXPNFOBSFOPX police officers, relegated to bike patrol QPMJDFPGmDFST SFMFHBUFEUPCJLFQBUSPM in public parks, until they bust a group JOQVCMJDQBSLT VOUJMUIFZCVTUBHSPVQ of shady dopers and are promoted to the PGTIBEZEPQFSTBOEBSFQSPNPUFEUPUIF Jump Street unit, assigned to go undercov+VNQ4USFFUVOJU BTTJHOFEUPHPVOEFSDPW er as high schoolers and bust a drug ring. FSBTIJHITDIPPMFSTBOECVTUBESVHSJOH Their barking-mad captain (Ice Cube) 5IFJSCBSLJOHNBEDBQUBJO *DF$VCF  - the sort of boss who will never be oUIFTPSUPGCPTTXIPXJMMOFWFSCF pleased no matter how well you do your QMFBTFEOPNBUUFSIPXXFMMZPVEPZPVS job - warns them there are two condiKPCoXBSOTUIFNUIFSFBSFUXPDPOEJ tions they must adhere to, always: One, do UJPOTUIFZNVTUBEIFSFUP BMXBZT0OF EP not get expelled. Two, do not have sexual OPUHFUFYQFMMFE5XP EPOPUIBWFTFYVBM relationships with students or faculty SFMBUJPOTIJQTXJUITUVEFOUTPSGBDVMUZ members. NFNCFST Of course, in about two minutes the 0GDPVSTF JOBCPVUUXPNJOVUFTUIF bumbling cops have broken both rules. But CVNCMJOHDPQTIBWFCSPLFOCPUISVMFT#VU what makes "21 Jump Street" so funny XIBUNBLFTi+VNQ4USFFUwTPGVOOZ and exciting and lovable is all the stuff you BOEFYDJUJOHBOEMPWBCMFJTBMMUIFTUVGGZPV don't see coming. The best comedies - the EPOUTFFDPNJOH5IFCFTUDPNFEJFToUIF ones that endure, the ones you can't help POFTUIBUFOEVSF UIFPOFTZPVDBOUIFMQ but stop and watch again when you come CVUTUPQBOEXBUDIBHBJOXIFOZPVDPNF across them on TV the ones with jokes that BDSPTTUIFNPO57 UIFPOFTXJUIKPLFTUIBU still make you laugh the 40th time around TUJMMNBLFZPVMBVHIUIFUIUJNFBSPVOE - are extremely difficult to pull off. "21 oBSFFYUSFNFMZEJGmDVMUUPQVMMPGGi Jump Street" makes it all seem easy. +VNQ4USFFUwNBLFTJUBMMTFFNFBTZ This is the rare breed of Hollywood stu5IJTJTUIFSBSFCSFFEPG)PMMZXPPETUV dio production that has the brash spirit of EJPQSPEVDUJPOUIBUIBTUIFCSBTITQJSJUPG an independent picture and the sharp wit BOJOEFQFOEFOUQJDUVSFBOEUIFTIBSQXJU of a stand-up comic. The movie's budget PGBTUBOEVQDPNJD5IFNPWJFTCVEHFU is big, but so are its ideas and smarts. It JTCJH CVUTPBSFJUTJEFBTBOETNBSUT*U is also absolutely, consistently hilarious JTBMTPBCTPMVUFMZ DPOTJTUFOUMZIJMBSJPVT and decidedly R-rated, but never crude or BOEEFDJEFEMZ3SBUFE CVUOFWFSDSVEFPS mean-spirited or dumb. NFBOTQJSJUFEPSEVNC "21 Jump Street" is also the latest entry i+VNQ4USFFUwJTBMTPUIFMBUFTUFOUSZ in the dreaded genre of movies that turn JOUIFESFBEFEHFOSFPGNPWJFTUIBUUVSO TV shows into comedies, which usu57TIPXTJOUPDPNFEJFT XIJDIVTV ally results in duds ("Starsky & Hutch" BMMZSFTVMUTJOEVET i4UBSTLZ)VUDIw or "The Dukes of Hazzard.") This one, PSi5IF%VLFTPG)B[[BSEw 5IJTPOF  though, works like gangbusters because UIPVHI XPSLTMJLFHBOHCVTUFSTCFDBVTF it embraces its source material instead of JUFNCSBDFTJUTTPVSDFNBUFSJBMJOTUFBEPG spoofing it. TQPPmOHJU The premise of the late-1980s series, 5IFQSFNJTFPGUIFMBUFTTFSJFT  which starred Johnny Depp as a memXIJDITUBSSFE+PIOOZ%FQQBTBNFN ber of a police unit posing undercover as CFSPGBQPMJDFVOJUQPTJOHVOEFSDPWFSBT high school students, was always a little IJHITDIPPMTUVEFOUT XBTBMXBZTBMJUUMF ridiculous.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("Cloudy with 1IJM-PSEBOE$ISJT.JMMFS i$MPVEZXJUI B$IBODFPG.FBUCBMMTw TJNQMZUBLFTUIF a Chance of Meatballs"), simply takes the silliness inherent in the show and amps it TJMMJOFTTJOIFSFOUJOUIFTIPXBOEBNQTJU up to delirious, affectionate heights (there VQUPEFMJSJPVT BGGFDUJPOBUFIFJHIUT UIFSF are also lots of ingenious cameos that will BSFBMTPMPUTPGJOHFOJPVTDBNFPTUIBUXJMM delight the hard-core "Jump Street" fans). EFMJHIUUIFIBSEDPSFi+VNQ4USFFUwGBOT  Coming from the field of animation, $PNJOHGSPNUIFmFMEPGBOJNBUJPO  Lord and Miller love visual humor and -PSEBOE.JMMFSMPWFWJTVBMIVNPSBOE gags, and they inject several jokes into the HBHT BOEUIFZJOKFDUTFWFSBMKPLFTJOUPUIF movie (such as an illustration of the four NPWJF TVDIBTBOJMMVTUSBUJPOPGUIFGPVS stages of drug intoxication, or a long, risky TUBHFTPGESVHJOUPYJDBUJPO PSBMPOH SJTLZ car chase that pays off in spectacular DBSDIBTFUIBUQBZTPGGJOTQFDUBDVMBS fashion) that give the movie its breakneck GBTIJPO UIBUHJWFUIFNPWJFJUTCSFBLOFDL pace. But the film's secret weapon is the QBDF#VUUIFmMNTTFDSFUXFBQPOJTUIF chemistry between Hill and Tatum, two DIFNJTUSZCFUXFFO)JMMBOE5BUVN UXP actors who share an instant, easy rapport: BDUPSTXIPTIBSFBOJOTUBOU FBTZSBQQPSU You totally believe these guys have been :PVUPUBMMZCFMJFWFUIFTFHVZTIBWFCFFO friends for years. GSJFOETGPSZFBST One of the cleverest conceits in the 0OFPGUIFDMFWFSFTUDPODFJUTJOUIF movie is that once they're back in school, NPWJFJTUIBUPODFUIFZSFCBDLJOTDIPPM  the two guys swap their former teenUIFUXPHVZTTXBQUIFJSGPSNFSUFFO age personas. Tatum is baffled that he's BHFQFSTPOBT5BUVNJTCBGnFEUIBUIFT become a geek who hangs out with the CFDPNFBHFFLXIPIBOHTPVUXJUIUIF chemistry club, while Hill loves being the DIFNJTUSZDMVC XIJMF)JMMMPWFTCFJOHUIF popular kid with the best house parties QPQVMBSLJEXJUIUIFCFTUIPVTFQBSUJFT and the prettiest girls. By the time the BOEUIFQSFUUJFTUHJSMT#ZUIFUJNFUIF prom rolls around, their adolescent angst QSPNSPMMTBSPVOE UIFJSBEPMFTDFOUBOHTU and insecurities have returned with a BOEJOTFDVSJUJFTIBWFSFUVSOFEXJUIB vengeance.

“THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST,” starring “HAPPY FEET TWO,” animated with the voices Willem Dafoe and Barbara Hershey. Ever the button-pusher, Martin Scorsese’s controversial of Elijah Wood and Pink. Tonally inconsistent 1988 take on the crucifixion puts more emphasis but plenty fun all the same, this inevitable on Christ’s mortality than any film before or sequel to the 2006 dancing penguin megahit since, reminding the viewer that as a man he was finds Mumble (Wood) risking life and flipper not without sin – a notion that proved to be too to track down his runaway son. In his absence, meanwhile, a glacier crashes into his community, much for many viewers at the time. This Criterion release features a commentary from Scorsese, cutting its adorable citizens off from food and Dafoe and writers Paul Schrader (“Taxi Driver”) family. The tragic subplots don’t always mesh with the cutesy feel of the enterprise, but there’s and Jay Cocks (“Gangs of New York”).

From early creepfests like “The Kingdom” to the gory grief of “Anti“MY WEEK WITH MARILYN,” starring Michelle christ,” director Lars von Trier refuses to play it Williams and Eddie Redmayne. Sometimes a safe. And in this near-unclassifiable drama/sci-fi single performance renders a film well worth seeing. That’s absolutely the case with this slight stunner, he plops already nerve-wracked new but amusing biopic-of-sorts in which we witness bride Justine (Dunst) into a particularly dire situation, wherein not only is her wedding night Williams (“Blue Valentine”) becoming Marilyn turning out to put undue strain on her already Monroe before our very eyes, bewitching the audience and wide-eyed assistant director Clark tenuous relationship with her sister, but a recently discovered planet named Melancholia is (Redmayne) utterly – when not enraging poor Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh), with whom reportedly hurtling its way toward Earth, likely spelling doom for its understandably concerned she is attempting to co-star in the notoriously troubled 1957 production of “The Prince and the inhabitants. Stylish craziness abounds. Rated R. Running time: 2:16 Showgirl.” Nothing groundbreaking storywise, Suggested retail price: $26.98; Blu-ray $29.98 but Williams somehow manages to top an already formidable string of performances with “YOUNG ADULT,” starring Charlize Theron and this masterful turn.

Dumas’ classic friend (Patrick Wilson), a now happily married employs perhaps more explosions than its husband and father. Providing a shoulder to cry original author had in mind (many, many more on is Oswalt, who fulfills the promise he showed explosions), but when you have “Resident Evil” in “Big Fan” with a terrific turn at Theron’s veteran Paul W.S. Anderson behind the camera, schlubby old pal, who quietly pines for her in the this is par for the course. In truth, “Musketeers” is a pretty darn enjoyable popcorn movie, never background.

“BAG OF BONES,” starring Pierce Brosnan and Melissa George. Solid adaptation of Stephen King’s popular novel concerns bereaved novelist Brosnan, whose attempt to hole up in his Maine summer home for some much needed alone time is infringed upon by a troubled young single mom (Annabeth Gish) and repeated encounters with what would appear to be ghosts. This TV miniseries offers a fair number of chills and a nicely grounded lead performance from Brosnan. Not rated; contains mild language and frightening imagery. Running time: 3:54 Suggested retail price: $26.99

“THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN,” animated with the voices of Jamie Bell and Andy Serkis. Based on the classic comics by Herge, this wonderful action/fantasy from director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson omits nary a detail nor character from the original sprawling adventures, yet keeps the story and action completely accessible. The motion-capture technology that disturbed so many viewers in “The Polar Express” has come a long way since then, and there Courtesy photo are several sequences here that are positively George Clooney and Shailene stunning. Rated PG. Running time: 1:47 Woodley in “The Descendants.” Suggested retail price: $29.99; Blu-ray $54.99 “THE DESCENDANTS,” starring George Clooney and Judy Greer. Arguably the most critically acclaimed movie of the year, this challenging dramedy from the always intriguing Alexander Payne (“Sideways”) provides Clooney with the best role of his career to date as Matt King, a well-to-do but shambling real estate attorney based in Hawaii who must contend with one upsetting realization after another when his wife is involved in a possibly fatal waterskiing accident. Adding invaluable support here are Shailene Woodley as Clooney’s teenage daughter and a surprisingly effective Matthew Lillard as a fellow real estate agent who reportedly slept with his wife. Rated R. Running time: 1:55 Suggested retail price: $29.98; Blu-ray $39.99

ORTLAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Before going 035-"/%Â&#x2030;#FGPSFHPJOH to Niagara Falls for the first UP/JBHBSB'BMMTGPSUIFmSTU time, I remember thinking, UJNF *SFNFNCFSUIJOLJOH  "This place can't possibly live up i5IJTQMBDFDBOUQPTTJCMZMJWFVQ UPUIFIZQFw to the hype." But it did. #VUJUEJE #FDLZT%JOFSPO1PSUMBOET Becky's Diner on Portland's waterfront may be in the same XBUFSGSPOUNBZCFJOUIFTBNF boat in some people's minds. It CPBUJOTPNFQFPQMFTNJOET*U seems like every TV food show, TFFNTMJLFFWFSZ57GPPETIPX  every visiting celebrity and every FWFSZWJTJUJOHDFMFCSJUZBOEFWFSZ travel writer who comes to town USBWFMXSJUFSXIPDPNFTUPUPXO finds their way to Becky's. mOETUIFJSXBZUP#FDLZT So the place gets a lot of hype. 4PUIFQMBDFHFUTBMPUPGIZQF But on a recent visit to Becky's, #VUPOBSFDFOUWJTJUUP#FDLZT  I was reminded why the hype *XBTSFNJOEFEXIZUIFIZQF started building in the first place TUBSUFECVJMEJOHJOUIFmSTUQMBDF - it's a genuine local institution, a oJUTBHFOVJOFMPDBMJOTUJUVUJPO B great diner with a very local vibe. HSFBUEJOFSXJUIBWFSZMPDBMWJCF My first reminder came when .ZmSTUSFNJOEFSDBNFXIFO I went in for breakfast on a Sat*XFOUJOGPSCSFBLGBTUPOB4BU urday, and was seated right next VSEBZ BOEXBTTFBUFESJHIUOFYU to the lobster tank. There can't UPUIFMPCTUFSUBOL5IFSFDBOU be that many places where you CFUIBUNBOZQMBDFTXIFSFZPV can eat hash and eggs and watch DBOFBUIBTIBOEFHHTBOEXBUDI lobsters that were probably in MPCTUFSTUIBUXFSFQSPCBCMZJO the ocean a day earlier. UIFPDFBOBEBZFBSMJFS The second big reminder came 5IFTFDPOECJHSFNJOEFSDBNF when my hash arrived. It was XIFONZIBTIBSSJWFE*UXBT the day's homemade corned beef UIFEBZTIPNFNBEFDPSOFECFFG hash special, which included the IBTITQFDJBM XIJDIJODMVEFEUIF hash, two eggs, home fries and IBTI UXPFHHT IPNFGSJFTBOE toast for $8.25. UPBTUGPS The hash had big shreds of ten5IFIBTIIBECJHTISFETPGUFO der corned beef, onions, potatoes EFSDPSOFECFFG POJPOT QPUBUPFT and tiny flecks of carrots. On BOEUJOZnFDLTPGDBSSPUT0O top was a wonderful dark-brown UPQXBTBXPOEFSGVMEBSLCSPXO crust, keeping all the hash's DSVTU LFFQJOHBMMUIFIBTIT moisture and flavor sealed in. NPJTUVSFBOEnBWPSTFBMFEJO One thing to remember about 0OFUIJOHUPSFNFNCFSBCPVU ordering the hash, though, is that PSEFSJOHUIFIBTI UIPVHI JTUIBU the homemade hash is a special UIFIPNFNBEFIBTIJTBTQFDJBM item. If you order hash off the JUFN*GZPVPSEFSIBTIPGGUIF regular menu as a side dish, it SFHVMBSNFOVBTBTJEFEJTI JU will likely be canned, a server XJMMMJLFMZCFDBOOFE BTFSWFS told me. UPMENF My sunny-side eggs were .ZTVOOZTJEFFHHTXFSF perfect - with whites that weren't QFSGFDUoXJUIXIJUFTUIBUXFSFOU runny and yokes that were still SVOOZBOEZPLFTUIBUXFSFTUJMM plenty fluid. This is a big deal QMFOUZnVJE5IJTJTBCJHEFBM with me. If I can't get my sunnyXJUINF*G*DBOUHFUNZTVOOZ side eggs perfect, I'd rather just TJEFFHHTQFSGFDU *ESBUIFSKVTU scramble them.
