Re: “Cuts and Cocktails at the Barbershop in Burlington

Burlington has so many bars that offer amazing craft cocktails(deli 126/juniper/honey road/monarch and the milkweed/ , Im afraid its going to be extremely hard to compete for patrons if all you offer is cosmos and bloody Marrys.
Maybe think of expanding your cocktail menu and investing in a professional mixologist.
Good luck!

Re: “Cuts and Cocktails at the Barbershop in Burlington

You probably think you're being literary but your ludicrous alliteration is childish and embarrassing. "Burly barber's bitchin' beard"? Give me a break. Seven Days should hire an adult.

Re: “Cuts and Cocktails at the Barbershop in Burlington

It's called "the Barbershop"? Might be a bit confusing.

"Hey man, I'm going to the Barbershop to get one of those trendy hipster haircuts."
"Which barbershop?"
"the Barbershop."
"Yeah, which one?"
"it's called the Barbershop."
"Yikes, really?"
"Sadly, yes."

Re: “Cuts and Cocktails at the Barbershop in Burlington

I honestly wanted and needed this place to be great. It is a delightful space with all the ingredients for a modern meets classic shop but the cut was a letdown. At this price range the cut has to be tight, the lines sharp and the fade popping. The cut that is offered is at the super-cuts level and can be found at $14 anywhere else in town. Sorry guys so wanted it to be the new place to go to.

Re: “The Hate Debate

Seven Days columnist Peter Kurth wasn't the only one targeted by "Mr. Happy" John Long with emails accusing him of being a pedophile. I, too, was targeted in that manner. From December 1998 to January 2002, I was a weekend overnight DJ at WNCS (The Point). Long sent emails to my bosses at The Point in 2000 accusing me of being a pedophile. Unlike Kurth, however, I struck back at Long with a lawsuit against him for defamation. I won the lawsuit -- which cost Long his Channel 15 show -- but I had no illusions about ever collecting damages from him. Eighteen years later, I still haven't.

Re: “Past Perfect

I was incredibly saddened to hear that Brooks passed away today. I will forever cherish the four years I got to know him, the many auctions we attended, his learned insight, wicked sense of humor, constant encouragement, and most of all, his passion; for Vermont, for collecting, for scholarship, high-standards, and for recognizing the importance of giving back. His largesse will continue to benefit those of us who were fortunate to know him, and generations to come.

Re: “At 80, Peace Activist Robin Lloyd Still Crosses the Line

I wonder if Ms Lloyd is this the same Bross-Lloyd family that owned the Chicago Tribune and who were instrumental in the Communist party in the mid-1900s? There is still a mansion north of Chicago called the Lloyd House that I was told the Chicago Tribune owners lived in for many years.

Re: “At 80, Peace Activist Robin Lloyd Still Crosses the Line

Robin is a force of nature. I am grateful that the Peace & Justice Center brought us together (along with a star-studded cast including Greg, Wendy, Ellen, et al). Among other things, that organization agreed to expand its "Justice" work into economic justice and support the Vermont Job Gap Study, which allowed me to do some of the most interesting, challenging, and satisfying work of my career.

The world is a much better place thanks to the tireless efforts of Robin and those she attracts to her loving orbit. Thank you Robin.

Re: “Faith in Goddard: A collective memorial for "Little Moscow on the Hill"

I liked the article but honestly I feel like Goddard deserves a better analysis of the forces that drove it and, so suddenly deserted it! I graduated from the RUP program in 1979 and went through the seasons of desperation and I came away with a real admiration for the gutsy survivor that was hidden under all the hype. You missed that story and it remains mostly untold to this day!

Re: “Riding the Rails With John McClaughry: Conservative Thought Leader, Politico, Hobo

Can't really stand his politics, but he's actually a pretty decent guy - interesting as hell. the old story of being stuck in a elevator with someone -- he's one on my list. for me his heyday was secession and shires in Vermont. All said - his thinking is damaging and "extreme" just my opinion. I'd pay money to be in a canoe on Lake Champlain with an incoming storm with Bernie & John.

Re: “Things to Do in Plattsburgh When You're Drunk

Sanctimonious, "better than you". This kind on look down my nose at how the poor people live attitude makes me want to puke.
Hey guys, I live in a very cool (you three can read that as "I'm better than you because my town is richer") town in the mountains of Colorado. Therefore, (the way you see things) I'm automatically better than you cause my town is better.
Assholes. Ever one. Go back to Burlington and stay there.
Oh, by the way, don't bother coming out to the mountains of Colorado, your city isn't cool enough.
Using your eval criteria, Burlington is "Rumors" compared to my area. Folks from harder backgrounds are lesser people (your logic, not mine [you may not see it - but it comes through loud and clear from your commentary]).
BTW, puzzled about how folks could peg you as Burlington types? You are condescending jerks. You are an easy read.
Grow up and stop looking down on folks who have been dealt a harder hand in life.
Assholes.
Try growing up in way, way upstate NY. It ain't easy. Jerks like these guys from Burlington strike me as types who never went to bed hungry. Trust me, you grow up in P'burgh you know what the word "struggle" means.

Re: “Loving Day Vermont Celebrates Interracial Relationships

As an American of mixed African-American and Native American (Choctaw) descent -- and who is openly bisexual -- I can say without fear of contradiction that were it not for the landmark 1967 Loving v. Virginia decision on interracial marriages, the Supreme Court's equally landmark 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges ruling on same-sex marriages would never had been possible. While the justices were split 5-4 on Obergefell -- as opposed to the unanimous 9-0 decision in Loving -- there was simply no way that the court could have gone the other way in the latter without repudiating the former. For me personally, the fact the Loving Day coincides with LGBT Pride Month is even sweeter.

Re: “How to Spend Three to Six Hours in St. Albans

something else to do while in the area (and it's free): it's a short drive east to the recreation of the President Chester Arthur birthplace/homestead. It's opened seasonally but don't let that discourage you. The drive is drop dead gorgeous - particularly on the return trip when the panoramic view of countryside leading down to Lake Champlain is enough to make you say "I want to build a house RIGHT HERE". Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it at picnic table at the small museum. If it's open, the guide will tell you more about Chester Arthur than you ever wanted to know! Ask if his Baptist father's church is also open - a short drive away - and another gorgeous location.

Re: “How to Spend Three to Six Hours in St. Albans

Can not believe this article left out Warner's Snack Bar.!!! Since 1966, 52 yrs at 495 Swanton Rd., St. Albans, they have been serving America's favorite food. Same owners. Milkshakes are awesome. thick, medium or thin made your way, same with the juicy burgers not frozen.
