Apr 9th 2010 12:48PM What does shad taste like? As long as we are on the subject, what does mule taste like?
Maybe they should try eating mules at the mule festival; if nothing else they'll get more press coverage, and possibly a larger turnout.
Dec 25th 2009 5:55PM And here we were all complaining about how bad the airplane food was so awful, at least until they took it away, when all along we should have been worrying about the airport food court instead!
Almost makes me glad my employer won't let me expense meals purchased at the airport!
Dec 14th 2009 12:18PM While I am sure The Dalmore is good, I can't envision Scotch being ￡10K good.
Aug 23rd 2009 10:36PM Anybody remember MyCereal.com from General Mills, circa 2001 or so?
You could mix and match most of the base ingredients of popular cereals (crisped rice, corn flakes, etc), and order it with your name, in single-serving bowls or pouches.
Not sure why they shut it down.
Aug 17th 2009 12:45AM I picked up a bottle of Hibiki 17 in Tokyo last fall, maybe once I find a retailer nearby selling Suntory whisky I can finish the bottle with fewer regrets.
Aug 15th 2009 7:34PM "ill honor the rate for guests with a valid confirmation."
That's extremely generous of them. I wonder if Crowne Plaza expects to make up the loss in fees and room service?
Jun 2nd 2009 1:09AM Good news, it appears Wine.Woot (http://wine.woot.com) uses "Wine Country Connect", and is not affected by the New Vine Logistics shutdown.
The article states that "The company was one of the biggest in the wine shipping business", is there any information on what other firms are big in wine shipping, and how they are faring in the current economy?
Mar 7th 2009 4:43PM There's also "Old Chicago Smoke Shop" (10 S LaSalle), they also close early.
Politicians may set the rules on *where* you can smoke, but the hours of these shops are set by the owners, and they close early because there aren't customers in the loop after 5PM.
Jan 10th 2009 2:42AM As far as "There's not an arch in sight", that isn't exactly true of the Quarter Pounder store in Tokyo on Omotesando.
Maybe not the giant lighted golden arches you're used to, but several small ones on the signs in front of the store, including a 2-foot high logo on the righthand side, as shown here: http://img1.picturewizard.com/1328CFE/0/quarter-pounder.jpg
Jan 2nd 2009 12:55PM Does "hostel" and "110 euros" belong in the same sentence? Maybe we need a new term for extreme boutique hotels, like this and the one built into a tower crane, etc.
I'd love to see pictures of the 4 rooms built into the shells of the engines.
