SHOCKING news out of Fox Mill, as first reported by one of our commenters earlier this week: The Fox Mill Five Guys, where one can purchase french fries by the sack, is closing later this month -- on June 16, to be precise.

That leaves us with just one
guy location, the one in Plaza America. Are we approaching a state of burger singularity? Will we someday face the true existential dilemma of the early 21st century -- whether to slum it at McTacoHut or go upscale at one of the fake downtown gritty urban core's artisanal burgeries? The mind boggles (and the stomach jiggles).
