A Side Of Route 66 With My Omelet

By pleasurepalate, published on May 2, 2008

...expecting much from Flappy Jack's Pancake House in Glendora. All I was hoping for was a good breakfast from a place I have never set foot in before. Imagine my surprise when I got a little or actually a lot of Route 66 along with my omelet and pancakes that morning. Granted, the shape of the restaurant sign should have given me a hint of what was to come, especially since Flappy Jack's is on historic Route 66, but I remained completely clueless until I stepped through the doors of the restaurant.Once inside, my eyes were immediately drawn right in front of me to the now recognizable shape... (more)

I Scream. You Scream. We All Scream...for Cheese?

By pleasurepalate, published on Apr 24, 2008

...hat and someone in a gorilla outfit wearing an apron, quirky may still be too tame a description. Into the mix were also professional chefs. In fact, Cecilia shared her bench with the Artisan Cheese Gallery and the winner of the Kama Sutra category was Eric Greenspan, chef of The Foundry Restaurant.

Finally, after the heat of the competition was over, the awards ceremony were held that evening. As mentioned, Chef Greenspan took honors in the Kama Sutra category. My friend, Cecilia, first-time competitor, took first place in the Missionary Category. To see all the winners, click... (more)

Taiwanese-veggie Goodness At Bean Sprout Cafe

By pleasurepalate, published on Apr 15, 2008

...The smell of grilling meat is like the best French perfume to me; however, I also love my veggies and after my less than successful foray into Raw Cuisine last year, I can definitely say that cooked veggies is the way to go. I've been driving past Bean Sprout Cafe, a vegetarian/vegan restaurant, for a couple of years now and although I've been curious about it, I was never really motivated to check it out. One day, after a heavily-meat based dinner the night before, I was in the mood for something different and like a siren's song, Bean Sprouts Cafe pulled me into its... (more)

March's Featured Contributor - Ed Attanasio

By Digidave, published on Apr 2, 2008

... you live influence who/what you write about and how you go about doing it?

I like writing about San Francisco. There is so much going on here when it comes to art, theater, music and politics. I am not a very political person, so I write about things that interest me, like doing restaurant reviews, sports stories and articles about dogs, which is another one of my interests.

Your Broowaha logo, is there a story behind it?

No, I have changed my Broowaha logo several times. The photo I have now is one that I found online. It’s a little dog dressed... (more)

Broo Deathmatch - Second Half First Round Results...

By Glenn T, published on Mar 24, 2008

...Britney. But, alas, we’ve certainly not heard from him as often as the queen of Reno-Tahoe-Truckee-Carson City-Sparks. There’s something both disturbing and enjoyable about a writer who can tackle philosophy, the northern Nevada nightlife, and (I’m not making this up) a restaurant review of Little Ceasar’s. Yeah, I know, totally awesome. Morgana hasn’t been with Broo long – but has certainly made a big splash… and in the end – you don’t mess with a girl from Truckee. Morgana off to the sweet, sweet sixteen.

Okay folks ... (more)

A Delectable Trio

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 19, 2008

These are three restaurants I recently reviewed for www.chowbaby.com. What a great gig! I get to eat incredible food in amazing settings and best of all--they pay me!

There is a spot on the Mendocino Coast called Stevenswood Spa Resort (or the Restaurant at Stevenswood; 8211 North Highway One; (707) 937-2810; www.Stevenswood.com) that serves some incredible contemporary American cuisine that is both inspired and creative, using the best fresh and local ingredients you'll find anywhere in Northern California.

The Invasive Cell Phone

By Ladymaggic, published on Mar 7, 2008

...

This is one of the reasons that video phones have not become popular. Addicts will have to be dressed to answer the phone, and make sure they are in appropriate places. Imagine telling the wife or girlfriend that one is in an important meeting when in the arms of a girlfriend, at a restaurant or in a public service, whilst on a video phone. Remote viewing psychics would have some fun watching some people answer the mobile, which has today taken over far too many lives. Video phones would be very useful for parents using mobiles to check on their young children and teenagers,... (more)
