Great article Austin. It sounds like the main takeaway is that we're getting closer.
Tying North Carolina's brewery boom to having a high unemployment rate is the biggest reach of an excuse I've ever heard, so it's good that pro-three-tier people are running out of things to blame.
The bottom line is that all these arguments in support of maintaining the current system have been disproved in almost all other major markets. When you hire a firm to support your cause and the best they can come up with "change is bad" you might want to reconsider your position.
""Yes, and I need to tell you we do not allow separate checks. We do not split bills." I didn't believe the voice on the phone and hung up."
"She had agreed, after we begged, to give us separate checks. When I asked the manager earlier why they couldn't divide checks..."
it seems a little weird that a professional restaurant reviewer can't grasp the concept of "we don't do separate checks".
I think it's telling that the anonymous source wants to make sure people with more money are treated fairly. I wouldn't reveal my identity either if my opinions were so icky.
Allowing on premise sales is tantamount to a rain drop in a large lake. I would take advantage of on premise sales, but I would still buy the majority of my beer from the package stores. Growlers are not the best deal when buying beer. I would only purchase if it was a once in awhile beer, or a favorite that I am unable to purchase in a store.
The slippery slope perspective is absurd and just exposes the greed of the wholesalers and distributors. If they honestly think places like Wrecking Bar and Max Lagers would rather do without a wholesaler distributing their product, they are clueless.
The gloom and doom from the wholesalers and distributors is a lot of hyperventilating over what will turn out to a minor speed bump for their bottom line, if any. In all those other states that allow breweries sell direct to the consumer I do not see any evidence that the above entities are hurting in any way. Just the typical situation of them trying to not lose even one dime, despite anyone else it might hurt.
Choice is better. Let the brewers decide if they do better with distributors or not.
Looks like Cliff finally found a place to eat that meets his standards of gayness.
I cant believe that Taqueria Los Hermanos isn't on this list. They have some of the best Tamales ever! The one in Tucker is consistently great...check them out : http://www.taquerialoshermanos.com/four-co…
Following up on the PG/FSB thread: First, I'm a native Atlantan, and I loved Chef Paul; I thank him for his time here, and I wish him well in Switzerland. Second, I am a small business owner with a (currently) terrible web site and would love for someone to help me build a good one at a reasonable price. I've had quotes from $3k to $30k and nobody can explain the difference and why there's such a range. I'm a lawyer (the irony is not lost on me), but for me it's like dealing with a car mechanic. I don't understand how the engine works and I have no idea what a fair price is. So, by all means, hit me if you have a recommendation.
I'm really disappointed at Mr. Bostock's less than fair review of Lips Atlanta. It sounds as if he went into this with a bad attitude, focusing on anything negative he could think of.
Lips Atlanta is a very fun place to go with friends for an evening of drinks, dining and drag...all in a clean & smoke free environment. Not a smoke filled dirty bar but a place where you'd be proud to take your friends whether they're gay, straight or whatever. It's a great environment for the drag queens to have a steady job doing what they love to do in a beautiful, glitzy little palace. They do a fine job taking your drink orders and serving your dinner. My pork chop was delicious and the Mac & cheese was very tasty. It's not Ruth Chris so if you want that, go there. I do like the Wednesday & Thursday evenings better because there's only one seating so it's not as rushed and the drag performance is longer than on Friday & Saturday nights with. 2 performances. I'm looking forward to going to Sunday's gospel brunch.
If you want to have a great time in a space that Liberace would be proud of then make your reservations & go to Lips. Don't let Cliff's review bias you!
Were there sliders?
Straight people be havin' kids and goin' to church. You seen this, you heard about this? (adjusts tie)
RIP Hollywood HOTS...Backstreet...etc...
This town used to swing...and strut...now it shuffles. A 24 hr. moveable feast became a polite mixer.
Thanks Ray Lewis, lazy cops, and know-it-all killjoy liberal Democrat (?) power broker politicians.
PG - you could offer to help them instead of critiquing them, since you seem to know so much more about websites... Running a small business is hard enough, and fancy websites are expensive. The new management at LBM is fantastic, running front and back of the house as a family and keeping Paul's vision in place. Why not put some positive energy into the universe instead of anonymously being mean?
Little's is now trying to raise money to fix the building they are in. Here is the fundraising link: http://igg.me/p/please-help-save-little-s-…
I just wish The General Muir, with all their wonderful food had Knishes. I can only imagine how awesome they would be!
I see some of these people do Poblano and Cheese tamales and I have had some of the above mentioned and they are very good. With that being said, do any of y'all know any people that make tamales that are "Refried Bean, Jalapeño, and Cheese" Poblano is fine for the pepper, too. We used to have a woman (years ago in Dallas, TX) that made the most incredible ones for us and since we've moved here we haven't found anyone that makes anything with the refried beans. Any help would be most appreciated! :)
Lorenzo, i'd put Smoke Ring's meat on par with anyone else in town, but i'd say their sides ('specially the mac and cheese) and extended menu are a couple notches above. their bar program is WAY better than any of the other BBQ spots in town and it's just so damn nice inside...so much more comfortable than Fox. great spot to catch a game.
i've been pretty underwhelmed by Fox Brothers every time i've been, though (i would say Daddy D's and Commnity Q are both better), so we might have different tastes.
Some of the BEST Tamales I have ever eaten are at Rico's on East Atlanta Road near Stockbridge. GREAT Mexican Food and Excellent Service.
How could Buford highway farmers market be left out? Their food court at males have the best masa I have found in Atlanta.
