Re: “The waitress anxiety dream: Will it never end?

Omg, glad to find this thread. I was a waiter for 12 years and have not waited tables since 1989!
The last week I have had two very detailed in the weeds dreams. Like other people said I could draw the layout and what was happening. These dreams are draining and when I wake up I am left with that horrible feeling when you cannot get the task you needed accomplished.

Re: “Behind the scenes of the Ultimate Doughnut Smackdown

You should try a glazed donut from the original Sarah donuts (Sara donuts) on Satallite in Suwanee. If you think a glazed donut is good at Norcross, you will be blown away with the original glaze there.

Re: “The Ultimate Atlanta Doughnut Smackdown

One doughnut from each shop is definitely a weird way to do this Smackdown. It made some sense when you were looking at pizzas, but I'm not sure this format makes much sense for something as cheap and easily shared as donuts.

This is an affront to the esteemed field of doughnut science, and it will not go unchallenged. Be forewarned, I will be submitting a scathing editorial to Circular & Fried: The Journal of the Southeastern American Doughnut Society.

Doughnuts are the new cupcakes are the new popcorn are the new popsicles.

Re: “The Ultimate Atlanta Doughnut Smackdown

I agree with both posters - they're frickin donuts! And as far as the low score for Revolution, tell that to the donut-junkie throngs that line up each morning to get a taste...maybe there's something else in them donuts, eh? Nope, just vegan goodness !

Re: “The Ultimate Atlanta Doughnut Smackdown

You guys have some major sticks up your butt. They're donuts. You're reviewing donuts. These aren't 5 star restaurants...

Re: “The Ultimate Atlanta Doughnut Smackdown

How can you do this to me first thing in the morning?!!! That sunflower looks bangin'!

I like the "idea" of asking for the best seller or the most popular, but that doesn't always work. I can think of 10 better donuts at Revolution that are better than their sliders. I'm sure that can be said for most of the donuts shops number 2-12. That being said, i'm really just jealous of the research you did!

The "meal" in the photo is a steal at $64.50.

The "Cokentrice" just rolls off the tongue.

Re: “Trade commercial bird for freedom-loving, pasture-raised meat

It's not just about the welfare of the animal prior to it's demise - but about the healthfulness of the environment it's been raised in. Feedlots and chicken houses are often woefully overcrowded, which can lead to a multitude of health issues. Due to these health conditions, antibiotics are often heavily administered (in fact most feeds automatically include them, how handy) - but that's a whole other issue. I worked in the food industry and soundly believe that commercially raised animals are not nearly as healthy as animals raised in less crowded environments and I will no longer purchase meat that was commercially raised. I've known people that raised chicken for a living, and would not eat their commercial chickens. It does take more commitment and money, but the options are there if someone is inclined to find them.

Yet another unique neighborhood being raped and pillaged by big business. The saddest thing, Paces doesn't give a rat's ass.

Re: “Stone Soup to close on Aug. 23, blames landlord increasing rent

Oh they are absolutely running Mi Barrio off.
People are acting as if they thought Paces was going to act with some level of neighborhood integrity. Why? They are not your friends. All of the T-town/GP/Reynoldstown area has been bought up to exploit the area, run up rents, and generally homogenize the Memorial corridor. The infrastructure can't handle thousands more people in there area, but hey, there will be Sprouts! Why the Paces monopoly was ever allowed to happen is beyond me (not really). But you can ask your district reps...

Re: “The future of Irwin Street Market

The signs on the roof held up by timber make it look like an old western movie set.
