Re: “Spacious New Digs for Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea

Well reasoned post Paco but what does Act 250 have to do with reason ? This statute has become a huge work project for the environment crowd giving employment to a horde of lawyers and "professionals" in this industry . It also allows those that don't wish competition to stifle new growth by engaging in obstructionist tactics. The overall protection of Vermont has been sacrificed to a patchwork process where project success depends on your financial ability to wait out roadblocks .

Getting back to Stowe and Rt 100 , this is a problem that sadly never gets better . Combined with the Mountain Road (Rt 108) , these roads are never improved except for a little tinkering . Traffic has grown ,especially large trucks and there has been no action to improve the situation . In fact things have gotten worse .

Re: “Spacious New Digs for Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea

How did this place possibly get an Act 250 permit? Traffic on Rt 100 between Stowe and Waterbury is already horrendous.

The legislature needs to audit Washington County's Act 250 commission. Growth should occur closer to the interstate where there's less impact on traffic and environment. Vail buying the ski operations, businesses like this expanding on Rt 100, and the continued growth of Stowe as a 4-season tourist destination will only provide fuel to further environmental and traffic problems plaguing the corridor.

Growth is great. But growth's gotta occur closer to the interstate and our village centers where there's existing infrastructure to accommodate additional traffic. Expanding Rt 100 to four lanes is too expensive.

Re: “Namuna Asian Kitchen Opens in Winooski

Used to LOVE Dharshan Namaste Asian Deli was so said when they switched owners. Never really cared for Spice Traders' Kitchen. It just wasn't nearly as good ss Namaste. Hopefully this new place will be just as good as Namaste.

Re: “Nepali Market Expands to Burlington's New North End

Welcome to the NNE. Please consider selling fresh bulk spices and other natural foods as well. Our only choices short of going to City Market are the very lame Price Chopper and Hannifords. You should do well at that location but also consider expanding your scope a bit

Meh. They can't compare to Red Hen and dealing with Hunt is often not worth the trouble.

Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Rebrands, Offers Dinners

It wasn't that good before. Of they didn't reopen it wouldn't be a great loss to the Burlington restaurant scene.

Their website does not include a menu or phone number. Any clues?

Re: “Mad Taco Spruces Up, Expands Catering

I love the seitan burrito in Waitsfield and the yam burrito in MontP. Now if only Mad Taco would come to Brattleboro! We have lots of open storefronts and no taquerias. Please!

Wow, I never knew that the Mad Taco owner farms his restaurants' food! That's great to know, thanks for the info, SD food reporters. I'm excited to check out the updated Montpelier location now!

Re: “Remembering Karen Freudenberger, Founder of Pine Island Farm

I am stunned and overwhelmed with sorrow at this news- her presence was a source of inspiration from the time I first met her at Bryn Mawr College to rediscovering her nearby in VT at a recent gathering of Bryn Mawr alums at Pine Island Farm. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to the many who have been touched by her presence through visionary work here and abroad.

Re: “Remembering Karen Freudenberger, Founder of Pine Island Farm

Oh no! Karen was an absolutely amazing human being on so many levels. What a tremendous loss. My deepest condolences to her family.
