Re: “Best Bets: Brisket

Good brisket is at Elwood's Shack and Loflin Yard, they say.

Re: “Beer With Me

Steel Reserve 211 is 8%, highest ABV available by law.

Your logic is invalid.

Re: “Beer With Me

Busch Light was my CDB of choice in college. I dated a girl who's dad would always share one of his Hamm's. So I tried to keep a Busch Light six pack in his fridge at all times. Today, PBR is my choice brand and I am neither young nor a hipster. Still, you can beat the clean, refreshing taste of a Miller High Life pony.

Re: “Beer With Me

Lumping Budweiser in with the Nasty Lights, Milwaukee's Best, Schaeffer's and Keystones of the world is insulting. While Budweiser is not a craft level, it's still tiers above those you mentioned and is probably far and away the best mass produced beer in the US. America!

Re: “Bluefin's New Korean Menu

I'm glad you had a good experience. My recent experience there was the complete opposite. We went for dinner before the Tom Petty concert. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant and patio. The bartender walked out while we were there. The food was mediocre at best. The Korean beef tacos were terrible with absolutely no Korean seasoning or sauce. Tables all around us were just getting up and walking out. Food kept coming out wrong to other people around us. It got to be almost comical.

Was thinking about hitting this pub up, but that pic of T Webb kinda scared me.

Re: “Majestic Owners Plan New Concept for Beale Street Landing

The entire space needs a taste makeover. From the trashy gift shop to the prior restaurant that used to hand print signs and tape them around the space their is a lack of presentation. Of course the ugly orange box sitting on top of the building was a RDC add on and not in the original design. Translation: RDC has no taste.

Re: “Upsetting the Food Cart

You're right, it's just too hard to regulate disadvantaged small business entrepreneurs out of the food service industry if they aren't locked inside a building first.

Best to ban the whole mobile food industry. Last thing we need is some pleb bootstrapping himself up to a brick and mortar store and getting ideas above their station.


Keep that wingtipped boot down hard on those scrofulous peasants, that's the best plan. Lord knows if they ever get on they'll be the ones doing the neck stepping, so it's best to get those kicks in while they're down.

/\the above post contains satire.

Re: “Upsetting the Food Cart

Plus inspecting a fixed location is easier since you know where it is and where it will be tomorrow. A food truck or cart is .... MOBILE ! And can be hard to catch when its time for an inspection. And forget about surprise inspections since the HD doesn't know where you will be that day. Maybe food trucks/carts should register with HD and state where they will be operating each day and if they are operating elsewhere there should be a fine?

Re: “Liquor Before Beer …

I always heard the adage as "liquor before beer, never fear; beer before whiskey, mighty risky". And doesn't it sound more pithy? More alliterative? Or even more southern?

I agree it's good advice not to drink on an empty stomach, especially with hard liquor. I find bread is usually available at a bar, so it's a good idea to eat a little to provide a buffer against rapid alcohol absorption (sure recipe for a hangover). And watch the alcohol content in your beer -- there's much more variation these days among brands, especially with craft beers. It started with those "ice" beers, that were about 5 percent alcohol (stronger than the normal 3.5 percent mainstream beers), but now you might order a craft beer that pushes 7 or even 9 percent. I drink beer mostly for the taste, but unfortunately my drinking arm only has one speed setting, so I must avoid the high-alcohol beers!

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

I look forward to trying it. The cult of veganism is blind to its own shortcomings.

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

It sounds like he was going to close unless he made the change, so your option is no restaurant like Zaka Bowl or one that serves two non-vegan items.
