Amateur Boxing Show At Compton

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Jul 23, 2008

...Century, Lennox, and of course Compton.

The facility was at 700 N. Alameda St. Compton, Ca. 90221. General Admission was only $5.00 at the door. There was fifteen fights on the card and it was a great day for boxin'. It was a warm sunny day and the food was catered by Vick's Restaurant. It couldn't get any better than that. I didn't eat any of it because I got to watch my weight, but it smelled good.

Let's get ready to rumble...

I watched every fight on the card but I was waiting especially for Elizabeth Sanchez who was in the red corner weighing in at ... (more)

Off The Menu Fast Food Specials

By Steven Lane, published on Jul 17, 2008

...breaded, fried baby's foot in their meal. It was later discovered to be a piece of dough shaped like a baby's foot inserted by someone at the plant. No one was found or charged There's a Mouse in My Soup............Also in 2004, a woman eating a bowl of vegetable soup at a Cracker Barrel restaurant and found a dead mouse floating in the broth. Cracker Barrel stopped serving soup at all 497 eateries. Turned out the lady put the mouse in the soup in an effort to extort the company. An autopsy proved the mouse died of a head fracture, not from drowning, Ahh, thank god for forensic science. ... (more)

Freedom Of Religion - How Far Should It Extend?

By ddrapayo, published on Jul 12, 2008

...having sex? Could I display that symbol outside my house? Surely not. So, we could say that it only includes "real" religions. But then what do we define as real? If Scientology considered real? Returning to the prison example, what if I found a religion that requires me to go to a five-star restaurant every day. This should not be allowed. Now suppose I get prisoners across the state to "convert" and I have several thousand followers. Should this be considered a real religion due to the large amount of followers? Probably not. This raises another interesting question- should religions with ... (more)

...fused the ensemble guided us through a passage soulfully to the brink of just a quality cut of revelation. It was an authentic embodiment of Bebop.

These are just a few choice selections. The night was spread out into 3 glorious sets of music.

Fancy? No! Fabulous? Yes To Singapore's Banana Leaf

By pleasurepalate, published on Jun 12, 2008

When it comes to dining out, fancy white tablecloths and a trendy ambiance doesn't always mean that there's a great meal to be had. In fact, as many of you may already know about me, I'd rather have exquisitely prepared food and zero ambiance versus a mediocre meal at the swankiest restaurant in town.Well, swanky is definitely not the word to describe Singapore's Banana Leaf. In fact, it's a pretty simple set up. It's basically a food stand at the Farmer's Market where you place your order at the counter and if there's room, sit down at the benches right in front of their space and... (more)

I Like My Drinks To Taste Like Desserts

By Chef Phatatouille, published on May 26, 2008

...remember much from that night, but when I woke up with a bedful of sand, I had to call a few people to get the full story.

Where was I?

Oh, I had to move on from the White Russians while still maintaining a healthy dose of Girl Drink Drunk. So, every time I hit a restaurant with a colorful drink menu I have to try one of those wonderfully colorfully expensive creations. It was on a night of one of these splurges, with a hefty hundred dollars plus bill at restaurant famous for what the women wear more than the food they serve, that I discovered the Key Lime Pie... (more)

Grease Is The Word

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 21, 2008

... thinking.

The guy opens the can and reveals its contents. A brownish gold liquid.

“What is it?”

“Grease, man. Cooking grease. It’s biofuel, man. Totally clean.”

It could happen.

Grease is the word in the Bay Area right now. Restaurant owners used to pay to get rid of the stuff, but now it’s worth a ton.

Grease thefts are being reported more frequently than motor vehicle break-ins right now in San Francisco. This means that the people who used to steal your car stereo are now absconding with cooking grease... (more)

Slimtones, Meet The Slimtones

By Gary Schwind, published on May 9, 2008

...a band to profile here. Other times, like this one, features just fall into the lap of this fortunate writer. Even though I am a blues devotee, I wasn't seeking out The Slimtones. I met guitarist/singer Steven Webber purely by chance one night. My wife and I were eating at a local Italian restaurant and Steven and his wife were seated at the table next to us. We got to talking, swapped business cards, and then I arranged to come and check out the band. Due to some technical difficulties, my interview did not quite come out. However, that is not going to stop me from featuring the... (more)

By Shannon Law, published on May 2, 2008

Even better than treating your mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, or whomever else you call “Mom” to a fancy meal at her favorite restaurant is preparing it yourself. In place of or in addition to your favorite Mother’s Day traditions, a home-cooked, organic meal is a sentiment that she surely won’t forget this year.

Maybe your mom is not the detox pro that you are, or maybe she’s a health nut too. Either way, pampering her with a meal that is healthy and tastes delicious will surely impress any mom. After all, wasn’t she the one who always told you to eat your vegetables?
