  1. Frank is quietly (and happily) working with Ashok.
  2. Oh, I don't think there's any doubt that Google is something of a monopoly, but for *that* guy to be calling the kettle black after his little fiefdom got handed back to him? You never heard him bitching when Yelp was the only (national) game in town, and they were consistently showing #1 on all Google searches.
  3. Yes, when did that become a "thing?" I've noticed it also, but only fairly recently.
  4. And you know what? None of these Old Town closures are being rented to other restaurants, including Restaurant Eve. Restaurant openings and closings are a leading economic indicator. I see the bad moon rising.
  5. What does this mean, the only NOVA location? You know what sucks? Every 10 years, you have to get a new license - the first 10 years, you can renew it online, but after 20 years, you must go in. Mine expires in a few weeks, and it has been 20 years.
  6. There are probably 50-100 restaurants missing from the Dining Guide(s) - it takes me 5-10 minutes per entry to add a restaurant - the good news is I have tabs on them all, I think. (Some of these are in the Multiple Locations Guide, and I haven't gotten around to distributing them). I'd say Springfield is probably the single biggest culprit (after Baltimore), mainly because Kibbee has started so many threads on places that I just can't get to. (You are aware that the Dining Guides *only* contain entries for which we have threads?) Thanks, Kibbee!
  7. Great article about Sonny Liston: "Sonny Liston: The Mysterious Death that Haunts Boxing" on bbc.com
  8. If you have fifteen minutes to waste spare, this is a *great* video about human speed cubers.
  9. This is incredible - watch the video in the article. Mar 8, 2018 - "Rubik's Robot Solves Puzzle in 0.38 Seconds" on bbc.com Here's the video without the article, but the article is worth reading, and can be read in two minutes.
  10. I'm not sure what to title this thread; I am sure it doesn't belong in the Gom Ba Woo thread. Yesterday was "Double Carryout Day" in DR Land, and I went 0-2 in order errors due to language barriers - both were drawn-out phone calls, with my having taken extreme caution to repeat the order several times, and speak slowly and clearly, to no avail. District Dumplings, South Arlington I ordered 16 Pork and Celery Dumplings, 8 steamed, and 8 fried. I got 15 dumplings - 8 Pork and Celery steamed, and 7 Pork and Shrimp, fried. Wiseguy Pizza, Rosslyn I ordered a Large Pizza with Extra Cheese and Sausage. I got a large pizza with extra cheese and extra sauce. I'm not sure I've ever had two phone orders in a single day, at two different restaurants, with both orders wrong. Oh, well!
  11. Has anyone tried the one at Big Buns lately? I had it many years ago, and it was the best I'd yet found. Josh liked the version at Cuban Corner; Daniel likes the version at Mi Cuba. I haven't had either of these.
