We went to Spicy Basil during their grand opening and were seated right near the busy kitchen area - Our waitress was amazing, kept checking in and was polite and fun with our young daughter. The food (Pad Thai, the Beef and Brocoli, and the Fried Rice) was delicious and came out piping hot. The house side that came with the Gyoza was great, though the soy that also came was just soy. Overall we had a great dinner, and really enjoyed all of it from service to food. I am surprised to see you had such a different experience.
I understand that this is incredibly frustrating for everyone involved. The Mayors office already sent out a press release (Quoted in the Gazette) condemning the attack for being a hate action. So they have already done what they can - What more will a proclamation do? Other than, be a proclamation so that there is a place to go with the Pride Fest Proclamation? I hope the attackers mentioned are prosecuted fully, and the people who egged them on, and that the victims are ok physically and mentally.
We need our community to change, to be accepting. And to be open. But this shouldn't be a top-down thing, the elected officials CAN'T be the ones to make a real difference. You, me, Johnny-on-the-corner - We can make the difference. Why be angry instead of effective?
~best wishes everyone
