Headbanging all night would give anyone a hangover. Just ask the hard-partying guys behind Grill 'Em All Burgers, the long running heavy metal-themed burger truck that set up a brick and mortar base earlier this year in Alhambra. Now, for those not intimately familiar with the landscape of Los Angeles, Alhambra is part of the rolling procession of suburbia that moves west from downtown and doesn't stop until it burns up somewhere near the Salton Sea. "Valhalla", as Grill 'Em All's burger base is known, sits next to a Menchie's frozen yogurt and within thrashing distance of an Applebee's. Still, these dudes know how to rock.

Last Friday, while biking to Brooklyn from Manhattan, my dad called me. I was on Broadway in SoHo, so I stopped at a corner and chatted with him for a few minutes until this purple Dodge Challenger approached me at the turn. It was one of the cooler Challys I had seen in recent memory, so it caught my eye like others haven't in the past. Despite the tinted windows, I managed to catch a glimpse of the driver's face and thought, "Hmm . . . is that . . ?" Then I looked to the rear as it turned from Broadway and saw the license plate that said WIDOWMAKER. That's when I knew it was Dee Snider, former singer of Twisted Sister, free speech advocate, House of Hair deejay and, apparently, Celebrity Apprentice. I told Dad, "Hey, I gotta go . . . [click]" and gave chase. Two blocks later I was able to catch up to him but he wouldn't step out.
Can you blame him?
