Walking Off Hill Country, the Restaurant
Calories Consumed and Enjoyed at Hill Country, the newish BBQ emporium, on Saturday night:
3 oz. sliced brisket = 327
1 big beef rib = 275
1 side order green bean casserole = 80
1 large slice white bread = 80
1 bottle lite beer = 99
Total = 861 calories
Let's calculate how far I need to walk in order to walk off all of this. See the map of the Walk of the Confused Flâneuse, and come back. Never mind about the story right now. She walked far, yes? 3.8 miles! That is how far I need to walk today to burn off HALF the calories consumed and enjoyed at Hill Country.
As I have pointed out time and time again, walking off dinner sometimes requires much more than a happy little lalalalala stroll. I'm sorry to be such the bearer of bad news, but I'm the one who ate all this.
My new motto: Walk Free or Die
Quick restaurant review: We all loved the meat but weren't crazy for the sides.
Hill Country. 30 W. 26th St. New York, Texas
