Caloric cocktails

Nutritional disclosures could be on the way for menus at S.F.'s chain eateries

Boo! I feel like I should support listing caloric information on food and drink menus because that would encourage healthy eating and drinking, but I just don't. It's not like (most) people are unaware that the mocha-choco-latte has more fat and calories than the caffeine-enhanced water. Food and drinks are more than calorie-nutrient-caffeine-alcohol delivery systems.

Requiring chains to have the information available on request? I think I'm okay with that. But when hotel bars have to list cocktail calories on their drink menus I have a feeling I'll opt to imbibe in other locations where I can get a drink without a garnish of guilt.
