Bigger question is there's any real meat in their burgers.
I believe Horse is considered meat.

Kol Isha, count all Shulchan Aruch observing Jews out.
Point well taken. Last night we got lucky and there was only one act (the final one) which featured a woman singing. I stepped out for that as I would have for any other act that required so.
That being said, if you go to any sporting event there is kol isha/ dancers/ cheerleaders... Doesn't mean you shouldn't go - just step out or turn away when necessary.
And for the record - Shulchan aruch observing Jews are dan l'kaf zechus.

I wasn't talking directly to you. Don't take it personal.

I promise you, if you'd ask Rav Yosef Karo if you should go to an AGT event, he would tell you no.

Would he let you go to the watch the knicks city dancers? 

Or listen to fill in the blank sing the national anthem?

As I wrote point well taken - one must be cognizant of these issues.  Doesn't mean you can't entertain yourself with what IS permitted.

And that is the deeper question... not whether it is permitted or not, but whether it is entertaining or not. Yiras shamayim doesn't mean depriving myself of fun, it means changing my definition of fun. Or better yet, growing up and realizing that the stuff I used to think was fun is actually kind of lame compared to real fun.

Unfortunately we see a lot now days that there is one camp that says, "Have your Judaism and have your fun, just remember to daven mincha at the 7th inning stretch," and another camp that says, "We don't need no fun! We have Judaism!"

Very few truly strive for the true ideal which is that my Yiddishkeit is my fun.

You're saying that things that are Assur aren't fun? Do you have a source for that?
