Re: “Smoke BBQ

It is criminally overpriced and mediocre. They charged $18 for pulled pork or $21 for brisket with two sides. The pork was okay but nothing special and no taste of smoke at all. The brisket was a study in bad barbecue technique, starting with too much fat and ending with being overcooked. The sides sounded great but were bland and flavorless.

Re: “Chick's Fry House closes just under a year after opening

Had you been recently, harry2803? They made a lot of adjustments over the last few months. I went last week and it was $11 for three pieces of chicken with two sides and a drink. I didn't think that was outrageous for the quality.

Nina has moved to Merida, Mexico. I don't know about the gallery.

Re: “Edmund's Oast

My review was about my experience. I found the food is overpriced, the portions small, it was so loud we practically had to scream at each other over the table, and the clientele was extruded from the same vintage cookie cutter. Maybe I hit it on the night of a scenester convention. Regardless, that was my experience. Yours may vary, which is why I think it's good for a wide variety of people to offer different points of view. What works for some may not work for others so it doesn't make either of us wrong.

As for "hating on top restaurants," I'm guilty as charged. I don't like being ripped off, end of story. That's how I feel about virtually everything on Upper King with the notable exception of Prohibition. Also, "top" and "popular" are not synonyms. Top is subjective and, as I said above, people have different opinions.

Re: “It's time to scrap the Affordable Care Act and start over

No, Chris, clearly you're being pedantic and find great joy in misrepresenting what people say. Continue on with your uncouth ways, I'm done trying to combat your trolling.

Re: “It's time to scrap the Affordable Care Act and start over

Chris Haire - The fact you can't even comprehend the myriad ways you expressed bigotry leaves me wondering who thought it was a good idea to hire you to express your opinions.

The change you made does not make it any better, either. Since you seem incapable of empathy, let me break it down for you. First, as others have already mentioned, "tranny" is a derogatory word. I don't care where else you have seen it. It is wrong. The only proper place to use that term is when referring to car parts.

Second, by correlating gay sex to HIV transmission you further the stereotype that it is a gay disease. You correlate the two in an unnecessary and inaccurate way made all the more hurtful because you think it is funny.

And finally, by making light of an incurable life-threatening illness you pay massive disrespect to the more than 25 million people who have died from it.

Perhaps instead of denigrating a group of people and pretending it's humor you could, you know, say something meaningful.
