Re: Explain the craze about this restaurant review.

I hadn't seen the review before, or heard any of the "craze" surrounding it, but having read it just now I can see why people would think it's a satire. It made me chuckle a few times, especially the raspberry lemonade comments. It's just so damn sincere, and takes Olive Garden so seriously! It's certainly well written and a good review overall, but it's just hard to imagine anyone writing these words and not intending them as a parody. They are certainly from a different time; it's very much a sweet old lady thing to do, in a "oh, bless her heart, she takes Olive Garden so seriously, how cute is that?" kind of way.
Time present and time past
are both perhaps present in time future.
And time future contained in time past.
