I'm kinda in love with the fried chicken at One Eared Stag but I'm happy to try it at the Shed :-)
I think that APD is doing the best they can with very limited resources. I don't know of a single city that is even close to this size that doesn't have officers partnered up and riding two to a vehicle but our officers must ride alone without backup. That speaks volumes about where we are at this point in time. The city has made huge strides since the days of Bill Campbell. Are we where we need to be? Not at all, and the Mayor and leadership of APD would be the first to admit that. Let's just hope that public safety continues to be a priority in the mayor's office and with Council, so that improvements continue.
I tried the Victory Sandwich Bar for lunch on Wednesday and loved the three sandwiches a friend and I sampled. A few simple sides would round out the menu. Looking forward to trying One Eared Stag for lunch this week. Hopefully they won't disappoint as I've heard good things from those who have found it open. And I LOVE the scorpion!
God forbid someone should open a successful business in that patch of run down empty storefronts. Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium (to give it it's full name) is a vast improvement over what is across the street - a storefront that has been empty for years and a vacant lot. I guess it's too bad the church ladies didn't give their business to Danneman's when that space was a coffee shop. Presumably there weren't enough teetotalers in the neighborhood to keep that concept afloat.
So glad someone is taking over that great space. I hated to see Shaun's go, but am looking forward to see what Robert Phalen does there. Spanish influence sounds good to me!
