ALBANY -- The Assembly is getting ready to come back to the chamber in a bit to finish the final handful of 2013 state budget bills.
They broke about an hour ago, officially, so that some members could go to a nearby Holy Thursday mass.
Let's just say there was not a stampede to church. "How about the Rodeo Burger at Elda's?'' one Assembly member said to a half-dozen others heading to an elevator. Absolutely was the consensus.
For the record, the Rodeo Burger ($11) at the nearby Lark Street hangout for many lawmakers has for toppings: onion rings, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce. The perfect food choice for a long night of budget debate.
