Saturday December 1, 3:22 p.m.

Yesterday,  I met up with The Wild Guy for the first time in a little over a month. I think the last time I caught him was back in Chinatown in October before he took off for Japan to pick up his family in Osaka. At his recommendation, we went over to Jetsun's Juicyburger, north of North York Centre.

When we got inside, we didn't see a soul. The Wild Guy had to ask me to make sure that we hadn't come in before opening time. Well, the sign said that it opened at 10:30, and it certainly was an hour later. We needn't have worried. Within a few minutes, the high school crowd literally flooded the zone. We were lucky to have placed the order as early as we did.

As hamburgers go, the Juicyburger was fine, nothing spectacular. It was your typical burger joint with homemade patties, and with your choice of toppings. Fries were OK too with the complementary jellied gravy. On a cold day like yesterday, I'm sure Jetsun's Juicyburger can make a pretty penny.

As usual, The Wild Guy was venting about his usual frustrations at work....we never even touched upon the trials and tribulations of Toronto's mayor.
