  1. Thanks very much Don and I'm sorry for that younger guy. Is anyone else getting errors when trying to go to this website? https://www.arlingtonva.us/covid-19/vaccines/registration/
  2. Why do you think it's so bad? The burgers taste good and the fries are plentiful and also real nice.
  3. Agreed - seems like the problem is in the prejudices carried by expense account-type people, rather than the folks dining at Ray's.
  4. Quick question about those cheddar bay biscuits. Is there crack in those things?
  5. The statement of one's preference that there is no quality of dining experience that justifies waiting two hours provides no information about Rose's and should be reserved for a different conversation about waits in general. This is distinguishable from a statement that Rose's is not good enough to wait in line for two hours.
  6. It's funny you mention this, Bourdain mentioned this just yesterday on Reddit(!): I would like people really to pay more for top-quality Mexican food. I think it's the most undervalued, underappreciated world cuisine with tremendous, tremendous potential. These are in many cases really complex, wonderful sauces; particularly from Oaxaca, for instance, that date back from before Europe. I'm very excited about the possibilities for that cuisine, and I think we should pay more attention to it, learn more about it, and value it more. This is frankly a racist assumption that Mexican food or Indian food should be cheap. That's not right.
  7. Can you just lay your point(s) in a few sentences? I can't for the life of me figure out what bothers you about Momofuku. It's overpriced? You don't like the chef's attitude? Neither? Both?
  8. it's probably a chinese restaurant. Lamian is just the Chinese pronunciation of ramen - "pulled noodles" as you know.
  9. I go to the one at 123 Front Street in Toronto. If you ever come, it's where the free airport shuttle drops you off. I used to go 3-4 times a week and the staff got to know me pretty well. We'd always joke around and they'd often comp at least my chips and guac and sometimes the entire meal.
  10. Did you see that a-hole's yelp reviews? He's a jerk! A JERK! I know the type of people who write and say things like this - fucking know-it-all privileged a-holes. This is not an isolated incident or misunderstanding. These guys are JERKS!
  11. I'm sort of torn here. I truly believe those a-holes needed to be taken down a notch. And it really bothers me that those a-holes now get the pleasure of knowing the servers were fired - and I do think these are the type of a-holes that get pleasure out of others' pain. But they did get caught red-handed.
  12. You should read this and explore the links: "Kobe Haters are Stuck in 2008" by Neil Paine on fivethirtyeight.com TL;DR version: sabermetricians used to disregard guys who could score and do little else (for a lot of the same points you make, e.g., it's selfish, anyone can do it if they take the shots, etc), but it turns out the ability to score is rare and valuable.
