Re: “Federal Shutdown Puts Colchester Meadery Expansion on Hold

Shouldn't this bring into question why the feds are responsible for this? Last time they shut down, breweries couldn't get new lables approved. A label and logo has to go to the feds for approval.

So much for freedom.

Re: “Federal Shutdown Puts Colchester Meadery Expansion on Hold

That sense of community and care for ones neighbors is one of the reasons I love Vermont," Leahy said.

It's interesting to note that's exactly the reasons why the people of Vermont do NOT want the F35 bomber jet based in our residential neighborhoods. We don't want our communities trashed by anyone, no matter who they are. And even if our own homes are not directly affected by the projected negative impact of this inappropriate and dangerous basing decision, we deeply care about our neighbors whose homes, health, safety and property values will be bombed by the F35s.

Funny how Sen. "Paddy Warbucks" Leahy just can't seem to understand or appreciate his own words when it comes to the F35 basing in Vermont. He sure doesnt seem to love those same qualities when it comes from everyday Vermonters who oppose the toxic future that he is forcing upon thousands of Vermonters.

Re: “Hen of the Wood Restaurateurs Buy Prohibition Pig

Great news. Hen of the Wood is my favorite Vermont restaurant. I hope the new owner can do something about the echo and excessive noise level at Prohibition Pig.

I believe the photo that accompanies this article is from Bluebird Barbecue, not Prohibition Pig.

Re: “Farmhouse Group to Add Three Restaurants Next Year

I've been saying they should open a more casual burger place for a while now. It's really not surprising that they're one of the only local businesses that's actually expanding despite the high cost of operating here. They have generally great service, very good food, and when you charge $16 for a burger that's smaller than a hockey puck, you're going to make a profit.

Didnt the business owner learn anything from the Magnolia closing? Lotsa Luck. Now I have one more reason not to be a patron.

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

Maybe a better use of the owner's time would have been to contact the customer and find out what happened with her service. I wouldn't be surprised if not acknowledging her birthday wasn't the central problem. If it was, and as petty as that would be, a quick apology and the offer to make it up to her with a drink or dessert upon her next visit would have been a good way to handle this. I suppose posting the receipt is another.

Wow. Way to treat your customers...I think I know someone that's not going to be in business very long, even if the person he was shaming is an a hole.

How about we just get rid of tipping and pay people a fair wage because tipping is classist and demeaning?

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

Seriously. There needs to be a pause feature on any post, anywhere, all the time. If the post is relevant after say, six hours, then its go time. It seems like these ill timed posts (that have literally closed businesses) needed a pause before you post. IMHO.

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

Wait staff earn their living through tips. As a patron, you MUST build this into the cost of the meal/experience. If you are going to short a server, there should be a major reason. And to be clear: not saying happy b-day is not a major reason.
This system may be wrong, that may be true, but taking a stance on the tips-as-wages system on one particular server isn't advancing the cause. It's just screwing over an individual who doesn't deserve it.

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

The article doesnt mention Monarch deleting comments that didnt fit their narrative, or the fact that the hashtags have been edited here, I have a screenshot of #birthdaybitch, find it on yelp. On that same yelp you can find comments from the owner essentially attacking reviewers for their negative reviews.
This guy is just a nobody bully.
