Investrman.....great insight on BOBE in your neck of the woods. I have always had wonderful experiences in each and every store Ive visited...from Chicago to Cleveland - and as far South as Columbus, OH. I state that only to illustrate that I travel often. I am not happy about price increases...but I promise you we are not the only biz doing so. I was at a quick biz dinner last night at Applebees (AWFUL) and paid about $11.00 for a burger! So there you are...a crap-hole place like Applebees...with below average food...zero atmosphere...$11.00+ for a burger. I dont think we are doing so bad with our increases.
