Re: “Restaurants That Are Reshaping How We Eat Out

Very interesting article but your title is wrong . We the consumer, are reshaping how restaurants operate . And as you point out, restaurants , certainly the one's that wish to stick around , are looking with steely eyes at the economics of running a small business with severe challenges . They MUST accommodate us . Restaurants can't be a vanity project . They must serve the needs and desires of prospective eaters .That doesn't mean low low prices . It means offering what the consumer values .This goes for all places , not just foodie havens . Otherwise someone else will serve people on dishes which were purchased at a bankruptcy auction .

Re: “Raymond James Firm to Pay $145.5 Million to Settle Vermont EB-5 Suit

Is there an implicit wink-wink and nod-nod that all involved won't be criminally prosecuted ? YES YES YES ! In this case I'm fine with it . As long as Ariel Quiros doesn't walk away from financial and criminal charges , this is all fine with me . Good job Mr. Goldberg . I am also pleased that the duped investors will get to keep their green cards . In these loony Trump days, that is good news . You shouldn't have to sleep with the Donald in order to get into America .

Re: “Vermont Delegation Says Trump Must Seek Approval for Future Syrian Strikes

Still waiting for Obama's "consequences" towards Assad for gassing his own people . Trump to his credit (and I don't usually credit him) doesn't wait for polls , focus groups and studies before he acts . Obama was always warning but never acting . In truth keeping the USA out of wars was an accomplishment but people like a decisive President .

Re: “World Cup Ski Race Set to Return to Killington

Thanksgiving ? The race is scheduled for Thanksgiving ? I know Killington has early snow but seriously . Is this a belated April fools joke ?

Re: “Vermont LG Becomes Part of Shen Yun's Massive Marketing Blitz

Who would have guessed that reviewing a Chinese acrobatic show would result in so much impassioned commentary . Who guessed there would be so many new SevenDays commentators hurling abuse at the writer . Good job Mr Picard in revealing the behind the curtain elements here .

Re: “Why Does Seven Days Allow Anonymous Commenting?

Very interesting reading . I understand that hiding behind an alias is not ideal but the alternative might be worse . Would it be better to have a stilted conversations where only the boldest would comment or those who have spent the time to construct a fake identity . I don't think so even with the risk of shielding extreme commentators.
BTW this is my real name and photo .

Re: “Pints and Bites at Hired Hand Brewing Co.

And I remember The Chicken Bone Cafe on King Street where pitchers , PITCHERS of cocktails were available for less then 5 . I don't remember then so well . BTW - We are dating ourselves .
