I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).
My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."
Overall: big fan.

I seem to see a strong correlation between people that:
1. Pillory Mandela and African nationalists for employing force against one of the most oppressive systems of government in the latter 20th century and
2. Brag of their "2nd Amendment solutions" to political issues like Obamacare and gun control, of the "coming revolution" and whatnot.
Since Cid95 sees ENDA as a bad idea, yet another layer of grease on an already slippery slope, I have to ask him: is federal protection against employment discrimination based on ethnicity or gender also a fundamental wrong? How so?
One argument I've heard against extending employment protection to include matters of sexual orientation is that there will be a flood of bias lawsuits. However, states that have these protections in place see them as a small percentage of overall employment discrimination claims. Can that data be used to sway opinion? Or is the "think of the businesses" defense just a cover for "gays are yucky and I don't want to hear Marc from accounting dish about his life partner?"
@Ima: you mean Brien or Tara could be the next illustrious troll to become an albatross around a GOP pol's neck? They should be so lucky!
But all the same, y'all might want to get fitted for Luchadore masks.
In a strange way, there is some agreement between MatCat and Artrogue here. No question that there was a slaughter of natives, no question that colonials were taking over others' land, and no apparent question that we're fed a Hallmark version of history with this. I guess it just comes down to how much effort one wants to put into figuring out which historians' accounts are accurate and which are merely "truthiness."
So I don't feel bad about celebrating Thanksgiving, as I have no tie to early settlers whether they were good or awful neighbors, and I don't view it as a commemoration of the Pilgrim's feast. After all, they didn't have football back then nor did they have canned cranberry sauce, much less complaints regarding air travel, Democrats, Republicans, or gas prices which are centerpieces of the American Thanksgiving table.
I can just be thankful that we have a non-partisan, all-inclusive holiday that always kicks off a 4-day weekend for me. And I freaking love Thanksgiving leftovers.
Groups like the "Family Research Council" make the word family seem so awful that it embarrasses me to have a family, much less a "Christian" one. They're disgusting and espouse brutal, soulless ideas on those they deem inequal. Yeah, the group that recommended a concentration camp for homosexuals isn't a hate group at all, Bryan. Get real.
Here's a fun example of the propagandizing against homosexuals that FRC does: http://pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com/2013…
