A Simple Night

By Glenn T, published on Aug 15, 2007

...would have to, at some point, give way to the reality which, no doubt, lurked just beyond my sight. The music of footfalls and laughing sighs was trailing behind us - and it may very well have been, just for a second or two, the summer of 1992. Previously, I had sat in a sparsely attended restaurant bar, shared a stiff drink and a few rounds of surprisingly personal and comfortable conversation. I believe I smiled for the balance of my time there. I forced down my own prejudices and pre-conceived notions, and suspended my disbelief long enough to truly find out about someone - and for... (more)

il Postale in Sunnyvale is Bellissimo

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 31, 2007

When you go to some select restaurants, it’s immediately apparent that you’re in experienced, professional hands almost the minute you enter. You can instantly sense from the way they do things that they’ve been serving food and drink for a long time. Too many places are inconsistent and offer a hit-or-miss dining experience. That’s why I love Il Postale in Sunnyvale. The minute you walk through the doors at Il Postale, it’s a great experience. With its brick walls and oak floors, the place just feels warm and comfortable. Located in a building that once housed Sunnyvale’s original... (more)

Here Comes the Neighborhood

By Tina Dupuy, published on Jul 31, 2007

You used to be able to live in Los Angeles on the cheap. For struggling artists like me - it was ideal. You only needed one wardrobe (no winter coat necessary). Your heating costs were minimal. My horrible restaurant job provided health care. You could drive a crappy car. The under-two-dollar gas flowed like a river. And a listing for a squalid apartment that was affordable wouldn’t cost you $60 to find out about it. If this is any indicator, I knew people that were in there 30’s and didn’t have to have a roommate to be able to afford cable! It sounds amazing. But it happened. But times... (more)

Yes Virginia, Vietnam Vets were spit on

By sanity check, published on Jul 19, 2007

...very simple and undisputed. U.S. Servicemen in Vietnam were accused of committing war crimes and killing innocent men, women and children in Vietnam as early as 1964. This was ingrained in the pop culture of the time. Don't think so? Find a 1966 rendition of Arlo Guthrie's song Alice's Restaurant and listen to it. Pay special attention to the parts about burning woman and children. Lembcke's own organization, Vietnam Veterans Against the War conducted the "Winter Soldier" tribunals in which Vietnam Veterans confessed to war crimes. John Kerry testified to Congress that these war... (more)

Restaurants Around the World Sue Bad Taste Food Critics

By Steven Lane, published on Jul 9, 2007

Last February, a restaurant critic in Philadelphia found himself the "meat and potatoes" of a lawsuit filed against him for libel. The owner of the steakhouse, "Chops", Alex Plotkin, took great umbrage over the Philadelphia Inquirer's food critic, Craig LaBan's, critical review. In the review, Plotkin referred to his $15 cut of beef as a "miserably tough and fatty strip steak." Owner, Plotkin, responded in his lawsuit, that he didn't even order a strip steak but instead ordered a "steak sandwich without bread." He continued, "No legitimate food critic would ever mistake, or compare a steak sandwich... (more)
