  1. As of Sunday, still has a Rays to the Third sign...I've been meaning to go in, but I'm worried about running into DaveO, knocking him over when he can't see me to due to fogged up glasses, and getting sued! :-) :-)
  2. I drink a lot of Jameson, almost always in the presence of someone born in Galway (or because of him). I love Derek, but he's too harsh on Jameson because of the "douches drink it" factor. I'm right there with Tom on this one.
  3. Whatevs. The difference between a fried chicken sandwich with mayo, and one with pickles instead, was amazing! Though it might just be my ever-evolving taste.
  4. When I used to order from Chick-fil-a regularly I always took the pickles off and added mayo. That was clearly wrong, bad, and stupid. Today I had my first sandwich from there in years. I did nothing but pull it out of the bag and eat it and OH MY GOD IT WAS SO GOOD. Now to wait another few years before having one again.
  5. Kapao is located off Waxpool Road, in the same complex as Five Guys, V Restaurant & Bar, and a few other places. I've been meaning to write about them for a while, and I'm kind of glad I waited, as they just changed their menu. They do both take-out and sit-down and it's kind of set up like many take-out joints - you order right at the front, and then there's an aisle to walk down by the side of the open kitchen, and you pick up your own silverware and fill your own drink if you eat in. I tend to go in a bit late, so there's never really been a line. They're very big on being "fresh" and "natural". Whatever their marketing pitch is, I've become a huge fan of their food. It tastes much lighter than almost any other Asian food I've had in the area, even when it's something like their version of General Tso's chicken (General Kapao). You can pick a 1-5 rating of spiciness when you order. The last time I picked 3 it about killed me, but I think I'm ready to try it again. It's a bit pricier than my other usual Asian sit-down place (I average under $10 before tip at Chin Chin Cafe down the street, and here it's usually just under $14) but to be honest, I feel better after eating here. It's good stuff.
  6. I've lived behind Ravi for over 2 years now, and I swear it's been busier since Ramadan this year then any other time I've ever seen it. Obviously, this is completely anecdotal, but it's *insane* over there.

    I guess I can re-plug my blog: http://scofflawsden.com/blog/2014/09/03/birthday-punch-and-other-things/

    To Whom Are You Drinking Right Now?

    Pertinent to previous discussions, I'm hoisting a long delayed drink to Mr. Robin Williams. I haven't been able to write for a while, but hopefully this breaks that trend. https://unfoundedbabbling.wordpress.com/2014/09/03/robin-williams-depression/ (That's my personal blog, and I'm hoping to update it more. If you want to remember the URL, you can also get to it via bigblackdildoesinc.com. No, I am not kidding.)
  9. I'd never claim those as good wines. I don't know wines. On a night like this, when I need some booze: a $5.99 bottle of Rex Goliath Chardonnay followed by a $13.99 18-pack (no, I didn't drink the whole thing) of High Life. With about a pound of Harris Teeter sushi. Can that price be beaten for someone just tired, hot, and looking for a glass of wine?
  10. For various reasons I haven't been able to update this. The GWAR-B-Q is on Saturday, so hopefully that'll inspire me more. Now that I can go to bed without being horribly depressed about our world, you'll see something different soon though in another thread...hopefully...:-)

    Fernet Branca

    An Arlington restaurant's bartenders told me they only stock it because the owner of the place likes it. They didn't think anybody else did, and were surprised at how much of it I drank.
  13. "Secrets Of DC Food Chains: What Makes Them So Successful" by Rita Rapuano on zagat.com I found this to be interesting. It's not the most in-depth of articles, but gave some good food for thought (pardon the pun).
  14. It was painfully slow a couple of days ago, on two different machines/ISPs, but before I could get around to posting about it, it seems to have cleared up.
