Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

I can almost hear the doors closing now. It's gonna flop.

Now who is going to eat there when you have many better options in the downtown area. Just more wasted taxpayer dollars.

Why won't the city get rid of the Lenderman Gang and let existing city staff take care of the riverfront???

Re: “How to Drink a Beer

Don't get foam in your fabulous beard, but it's quite trendy if it frosts the tips your moustachios.

Foam in your back hair is boorish.

According to Faulkner, distillation is the true marker of the beginning of civilization, not beer.

Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

I swam up from the bottom of the river and met two tourists from Belgium on the deck. Dinner was delicious. Tasted like chocolatte. I'll be coming back often to troll the rails. Watch for bubbles.

Just to be clear, you're saying you had a pleasant dining experience?

Re: “New Craft Beer Coming to Memphis Soon

I've been saying for months that what Memphis is truly lacking is one more craft beer. After this, everything should be awright.

Re: “Now Open: Riverfront Bar & Grill

HORRIBLE! Husband and I went in, no signs about seating , stood forever, nobody acknowledeged us, we saw a table and sat down, waiter came over, proceeded to scold us for seating ourselves, said he
would wait on us,......we sat and sat ......no waiter, no menu, no anything husband goes to the bar to order us drinks (we walked from the parking garage at the other end of Beale st. ..very thirsty) waiter comes over and chews us out for getting our own drinks... I had all I could stand (I'm 58, not about to let a gay black guy chew me out twice!!!!!) I told him signs would be nice, since it was our first time there we had no clue what the progrAm was! Food was terrible!!! Atmosphere terrible! Great potential very poor management ! Never go back !!!!!!!

Re: “Sneak Peek at Lafayette's Music Room

In fairness to Bianca, I asked her to do this post after her visit. I'm sure she would have taken plenty of meaty images had she known.

Re: “Sneak Peek at Lafayette's Music Room

A place in midtown catering to the music scene without vegan/veggie options? You'd think they'd have spent some of that redevelopment money to research the demographics of the neighborhood they reside in. /badbusinessdecisions

"I'm so vegan I won't even PHOTOGRAPH non-vegan food!" Now THAT is commitment.

Re: “Sneak Peek at Lafayette's Music Room

They absolutely do have a website. It's been up for at least a week with upcoming music acts listed. The menu was not up before. But I just checked and it is up now.
Completely awesome!

Re: “Paleo Vegan Cookbook Review

Oh I get it. The paleo diet is paleo because you spend 90% of your resources just obtaining food.

CL, you take my question far too literally. We all know Fresh Market is run by aliens. It was a rhetorical question.

Re: “Paleo Vegan Cookbook Review

The history of grain cultivation, is the history of civilization. How mezoamericans took the indigenous precursor of maize, and turned it into the corn we now recognize, is a really fascination story of selective breeding. Wheat and rice, oats, barley, rye and sorghum, all were similarly bred. When people talk about a paleo diet, they are really talking about changes that occurred both in diet and behavior patterns. But you don't hear about too many of them walking 20 miles a day, or going on regular 3-5 day fasts, which also were common in that prehistoric era. It's all well and good to want to eliminate excess carbohydrate from the modern diet, which is pathological in that regard. I doubt though, that modern humans, after the selective pressures of the neolithic, bronze, and iron ages, really need to worry too much about using grains as a staple. They just need to be balanced with other nutrient sources.

And those who think we need to avoid milk, obviously know nothing about the Nuer tribe, and their milk/meat/blood diet... which IS paleo.
