Restaurants, thou shalt heed these tips

by the way, i have never received a response from phil vettel. i've emailed him somewhere between 2 and 6 times over the years. i'm not really sure how many. i've never had a response. after this article i emailed him again. i wonder how responsive he'll be. pot, kettle  (Mar 5, 2009 | post #17)

oh, i do so wish "Whadya Expect" had left. i know you had reasons. but i have had the privilege of not giving my business to people who don't want it, and i assume that they are just as pleased as i am. i google streetviewed the corner of lincoln & schubert, so everyone could know what you were talking about. luckily for them, their edifice is blocked by a convenient CTA bus. http://maps.google .com/maps?oe=utf-8 &rls=org.mozil la:en-US:official &client=firefo x-a&um=1&i e=UTF-8&q=linc oln+%26+shubert,+c hicago&fb=1 &split=1&g l=us&cid=0,0,1 107065087973200253 2&ei=V8-wSafCJ YKyNM_l7cYE&sa =X&oi=local_re sult&resnum=1 &ct=image  (Mar 5, 2009 | post #16)

i know a famously grouchy hostess who's made a career of losing business for restaurants. but at least there's always a table available.  (Mar 5, 2009 | post #12)

i thought this was a great column. and i agree about the fine line re: water glass filling. there's also the lost art of Which Arm To Use when serving and clearing. the elbows in face plague is epidemic.  (Mar 5, 2009 | post #11)

and also because these opinions you disagree with will only hurt you if you read them. therefore, your going away would work just as well (for you) as this board not existing.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #108)

because you asked for everyone else's opinion to be silenced. it worked well for stalin, mao and goebbles.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #107)

i think this board is not affiliated with the trib, only linked by it. it seems to me that sometimes the trib has a comments board independent of topix.net, and sometimes it doesn't.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #95)

how very christian of you. as an advocate of free speech (and not shutting down message boards for fear of leaking subversive opinions) i support your right to make public statements, and encourage you to make better ones.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #90)

posting from my warm house, i would like to make the judgment that this mom has, in fact, received a lot of aid in the form of direct cash payments and free, world class medical care. i'd then like to point out that she's been offered lots of other free services, and for whatever reason(s), chooses to reject them.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #27)

i'm guessing mom has some emotional or psychological problems. she prefers the freedom of the streets to any kind of government assistance -- or as she sees it, intrusion.  (Dec 22, 2008 | post #15)

not so long ago, coupling and sexuality happened during the teen years. not so long ago, life expectancy was 35. these points refute much of the nonsense thrown at us by the traditionalists and religion weirdos.  (Nov 29, 2008 | post #150)
