A night of gluttony at 5 Guys AND 16 Handles

I got home from work the other night pretty late and was faced with two dinner choices: chicken and spinach, or take-out. After approximately five seconds of hemming and hawing, the idea of take-out won. I ended up at 5 Guys Burgers and Fries in Clifton Park. I wasn't feeling very social, so I took mine and Joe Dog's meals to-go (and for the record: “Joe Dog”, is Average Joe’s furry companion, not a human companion). On the menu for the evening? A big, fat, juicy-greasy burger with melty cheese and toppings galore, an overabundance of addicting spicy Cajun fries (and plain ones for Joe Dog), sweatpants and American Idol on the tube (don’t judge me). This is the stuff that dreams are made of, my friends. But I didn't stop the dream at 5 Guys. I was also in the mood for a frozen treat and luckily for me, 16 Handles is like, right next-door. I couldn't NOT get take out fro-yo to add to my night of gluttony, right? If you aren't familiar with 16 Handles, it's a frozen yogurt spot with 16 different flavors and a plethora of toppings that you put on yourself (ah-ma-zing). For myself, I got coffee with chocolate chips, caramel cups, and chocolate sprinkles with caramel sauce and Joe Dog got a vanilla fro-yo with kiwi, mango, strawberry, peanuts and peanut butter, and LOVED it! We were both full with delicious food and glorious gluttony.
