Eat, Drink, or Die!

That is the name of a new (to me, at least) website about food and drink. The site features videos, recipes, blogs, forums, etc. Eat, Drink, or Die allows users to create profiles and interact with each and have personalized homepages. This is how they describe the goals of their site: BRITT LOVETT + TALIA LESAK (hello) believe that FOOD and DRINK keep us alive – spiritually as well as physically. We started this website […]

Bennigan’s Closing – Who Gives a $#@&?

That was my initial reaction to the news that Bennigan’s was closing 300 of its eponymous dumps along with some Steak and Ales, as well. If I could close all of the mediocre crap chain restaurants in this country, I would do it in a heartbeat. Then I started to think about all of the poor folks who will be losing their job. This led to a contemplation of the sorry state of this country […]

Due to a miscommunication we ended up at a place called Sushi Coast for the light dinner. This place was disgusting, and if I don’t end up with some sort of intestinal parasite, I will be amazed. There are some quite decent sushi restaurants in the Bay Area […]

Where you at?

I would like to apologize to any of my readers who have visited in the hopes of reading my latest babble, only to find out that there was none. Hurricane Dolly sent a little bit of the outer edges of her fury up to the Houston area the other night and I have been without Internet or television ever since. I am now Com****ingcastic again. Let the wild babble begin!

Objectivity vs. Subjectivity

Over at Vinography, there is a fantastic discussion about the places of objectivity and subjectivity in wine critiques. There are a lot of great points made in both the article and the comments. Writing like this combined with the great reader comments is what makes Vinography one of the best wine blogs around. The appreciation of beauty is ultimately an emotional, subjective act, but the detailed and complete apprehension of beauty, especially in its complex […]
