No Burger Too Big, Too Dear

Keeping track of Burgh Boomerang tales, a prodigal son is soon to return as "Burger King":

“As my career comes to a close, I’m happy to say that this is one of the best accomplishments of my life,” [Geoff Dobson] told his dining companions Saturday at the restaurant in Destin. The 29-year-old Air Force lieutenant was sitting in front of the restaurant’s Grand Burger, a $100 custom-ground filet mignon served with caviar, beefsteak tomatoes and a grand magnum of imported champagne.

“He needs goals in life,” quipped his friend, Tom Grant.

Dobson was at the pub for his going-away party as well as his and another friend’s promotion. Soon, Dobson will head back to his hometown of Pittsburgh to work as a software developer. He’ll also serve in the Army Active Reserves and expects to deploy to the Middle East in about six months.
