‘The Counter’ opens today at Ballard Blocks

It’s been in the works since spring, now The Counter opens today at Ballard Blocks (4609 14th Ave NW, Suite 108).

Although they do have a standard menu with six burger options, this gourmet burger joint prides itself in the hundreds of thousands of combinations you can come up with. They say that 80-percent of customers opt to build-their-own burger. The Counter boasts a total of 312,120 options, with three different patty sizes, 10 cheeses, 28 toppings, 18 unique sauces and three types of buns. You can also choose from angus beef, grilled chicken, turkey, veggie and specialty seafood burgers. Find out their burger and shakes of the month on Twitter. They have been known to also tweet a special deal. They open today at 11 a.m. Their hours will be Sunday-Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (This picture is of the Santa Monica restaurant.)

Hey, guys, I think we all need to just calm down the hate and the knee-jerk reactions, and just try the place out. If it's good, go back. If it's not good, don't go back. Simple!

So, you guys do that. Me, I'm not going near it because, honestly, another burger joint? Really? ;)

Nothing. Nothing will ever get me to associate myself with the horror that is twitter.

OMG! A multi-state chain!
So is Trader Joes. Get over it. Anywhere that let's me add favor to a veggie burger is okay with me.

I thought new businesses, chain or not, and new jobs were a good thing to get out of the economic situation we are in?

That's a common misconception. Not many people know that, in actuality, whenever a chain store opens in a neighborhood, five toddlers are required to be summarily executed. State law.

A fine place to be sure, but why does West Seattle get this:

Oh, crap, I thought it was six…. I let you call his mother and break the news. “Well the good news is we did not have to kill your son, the bad news is we already did.”

Wow – that place in West Seattle does look neat! Bacon … yuuuuum.

I don't know, I think this new burger places sounds kind of cool. I like the idea of getting to put tons of whatever on my burger – stuff I doubt I'd have on hand readily at my house. I like the whole “buffet” thing. Although anything with Twitter makes me cringe. But then Twitter is just an ugly reality of life now it seems like.

Don't forget the puppies. They sacrifice puppies, too.

the really cool thing about Twitter is that it's an opt in kind of thing.

don't like it? don't use it? But it would be silly of a business to not take advantage of every tool available to advertise. Especially the free ones.

but then again, it wouldn't be myballard if someone didn't find something to complain about.

No one shall. “Tweet” is the noun.

Didn't I use it as the noun, Professor Gurple? :-)

I think “Twat” is the past-participle.

Very funny. But I don't know any women who would put THAT word in writing.

Then again, it wouldn't be my ballard if someone didn't state the obvious. No. There is no way to put “the really cool thing” and “twitter” in the same sentence…unless you watch Oprah.

So is twatting a gerund?
