Re: “Uncle Buck's Fishbowl & Grill ranks as spectacle worth seeing, not eating in

Your disdain for Bass Pro is more than obvious. I'm sure as you sit at your desk in the city and munch on your organic tofu salad, you have no way to identify with the American hunter and fisherman. Although you may eat grass fed organic beef (I actually prefer it myself) you do so with never having to kill your own meat, it comes conveniently packaged for you at Whole Foods.
I'm sure the aura of conservative America might have been a bit much in that environ, and the "evil" of capitalism was just too much to take. But really, have you led that sheltered of life?
Non the less. Love your paper!

Re: “Pho 65, Canyon Coffee & Café, Stagecoach Inn

We really enjoyed the meal from Pho 65 last night - very tasty food and good portions. We had the steak and brisket pho and it was delicious. Also tried the springs rolls - kids love them, and the combination noodle bowl was excellent.

Re: “Potato Potato gets rolling and more

From Side Dish Jan, 22- Holding the tacos
La'au's Taco Shop (830 N. Tejon St., #110, laaustacoshop.com) is under construction, with both interior and patio remodeling in the works. Look for a re-opening this summer.

Re: “Wild Goose Meeting House lays a golden egg downtown

I enjoyed it last weekend but they need to work on the acoustics. The music was too loud for the space. It would also be nice if they toned down the lights. It would make a cozier, softer atmosphere in the evening. I will go again.

If it is Portland-esque, it has to be good!

Re: “Potato Potato gets rolling and more

There was nothing about La'au's going on hiatus. Is this really happening, and when?

Re: “Too often, new gastropub Alchemy treats food as a pseudoscience

This article really surprised me. I have been there many times and have enjoyed everything I've had so far. The Slaughter house was excellent both times I had it. Ive had all the appetizers and the have all been amazing. the bartenders have been some of the best in the biz!

Re: “15C, Rustlers and Joey's Pizza

I've been to Joey's; it's good and worth patronizing.

Crowne Plaza wasn't much; nouveau riche Texans now give it a gag-worthy name. Ella-gon-tay. Pretentious to the max. I'll never go, not with a 10 commandments plaque in the lobby; monied Texans are the acme of greed and hypocrisy. They need to choose, are they a hotel or a church; make up your mind. Better yet, go back to Texas.

Re: “Despite a few flaws, the Pepper Tree does wonderful things to a steak

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you call the power plant a blight... I call it a delight... virtually pollution free and keeping Colorado Springs Utility costs down....the clouds of steam that fill the sky provide a variety of shapes for those with imagination.... hurrah to the plant and BOO to those who consider it a blight... and this comment from an artist who realizes that there is more to beauty than what is on the surface.

We go to sushi ring and sushi ring II at least once a month and have developed a real love for both restaurants and it's people. Best sushi in town, bar none.

Where or why did Fine Asian Cuisine Close or move? I need their Vietnamese egg rolls.
