Expect a lot of shock-and-awe tactics on the part of the citys food-writing corps, as calorie info begins to go up in chain restaurants around town. First on the beat is the Voices new blogger, Sarah DiGregorio, who stops in at T.G.I. Friday's to find that the ribs there are a horrific 1,900 calories. From there its on to Starbucks, where the blended-cream green tea has 650. The other chains DiGregorio stopped by still hadnt gotten with the program: The Sbarro and McDonalds locations she visited hadnt even heard of the law, the Olive Garden presumably has its hands full dissuading waitresses from getting naked for Playboy, and as for Bubba Gump, a manager claimed that everybody is very excited about it. Something tells us that this excitement isnt misplaced. Theres a lot of comedy coming our way.
