Re: “Burlington's Growler Garage Switches Gears

Good for then. This is a famously expensive piece of real estate. There have been multiple, earnest attempts to turn it into business. Good luck.

Re: “Gesine Prado's Show 'Baked in Vermont' to Debut Saturday

I love this show!! Gesine is a wonderful teacher & funny too. The flaky pastry dough she made was so easy & it was delicious!! I've always wanted to make puff pastry but always thought it was way too hard.
Thanks Gesine for such wonderful recipes !! I hope you come back with many more shows!

Re: “USDA Again Suspends Slaughter Operation at Vermont Packinghouse

All this horrid treatment of animals is going to come back to us. It just has to; there's no way that the torturing and slaughtering of animals is in any way justified. How can you use your body as a tombstone for tortured animals? How could you love your pets but ravish a calf or a pig? Something is very wrong with the way you think and act.

Re: “City Market Seeks Investments From Members

The minimum loan a Vermont member can make to the co-op is $2,500.
Sounds like only the rich can invest in this. Where is the livable city people when you need them.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Pizzeria Verità

Two Margherita pizzas topped with velvety housemade mozzarella along with two Margarita cocktails set me and a friend back $23

That actually sounds like a good deal. I've dropped $100 on the same basic order except I had salads as well.

Re: “Poké Bowls Coming to Williston

To UVALEX, they are actually sourcing some of their ingredients from another local company, Honeywilya, who offer sustainable, line caught, Alaskan Salmon. Its not perfect and its coming a long way to get here but at least they are trying for responsible choices.

Re: “Babes Bar to Bring Cocktails and Music to Bethel

The Bethel Depot was my "home" for about 30years of my life. My step mom ran the bar for 17 years and after her I did. The closing of the depot brought my ten years of helping run the bar and bartending to an end but the memories will never fade. In all those years I had birthday parties, a baby shower and a wedding reception there. The customers were much more then customers they became my family. It will be different and strange to see the building be something new but new could be good.

As an old north ender I appreciate the growth of eateries and locations with affordable food for people who live in old north end. This guy is AMAZING and a great sense of humor to talk to!

Re: “Shinjuku Station Brings Japanese Eats to Old North End

Horray!!! These are the same folks that made sushi for City Markup before they inexplicably ousted them from the store. Their sushi is fresh, tasty, very affordable and they are wonderful folks.

Re: “The Friendly Toast to Open on Burlington's St. Paul Street

I never realized we had so many negative attitudes in Burlington especially concerning a fun restaurant. I have been a fan of the Portsmouth Friendly Toast for years and I have never found it over priced nor is it even similar to Penny Cluse!
What is wrong with you people?
Its a good atmosphere restaurant that serves good food and has always had a great staff...come on people! Put your negative energy elsewhere like standing up to and speaking out against this ridiculous President!

Re: “The Friendly Toast to Open on Burlington's St. Paul Street

I certainly dont think think Penny Cluse is poor quality or over hyped at all. One of the best eateries in the whole state of Vermont easily. Every time I go there is have amazing fresh tasting food that is beautifully plated for such a great value! You just need to know how to order. Sometimes I go there and order a half order of the garlicky sausage that come with a heap of their signature potato salad and picked beets and Ill get a half order of sleepy Nates Biscuits and herb gravy and boh of those plates of food come out to around $10 bucks!! The warm orzo salad is also to die for. Magnolias , Mirabelles, Lunigs and the Spot are all good too. How lucky we are live in such a great city! I certainly welcome another choice though in the friendly toast. So glad that space is getting filled. I look forward to it. Have a great day janefonda

Re: “Burlington's Growler Garage Switches Gears

This place is a joke. I went in once and they were serving 12 oz beers at rediculus prices. I asked for a pint and they said nobody sells pints in Burlington. Really? I left and went elsewhere for a pint. Never again.

Re: “The Friendly Toast to Open on Burlington's St. Paul Street

Nic Lawrence, sorry, but that Penny Cluse is good is not a "fact," it's your opinion. Another example of an opinion is that I think Penny Cluse is poor quality and overhyped and is the least interesting of Burlington's breakfast joints. An example of a fact: Burlington has several breakfast/brunch eateries, including Magnolia's, Mirabelle's, Lunigs, and the Spot.

Re: “The Friendly Toast to Open on Burlington's St. Paul Street

@ASLATER Another over priced / uninspired breakfast place in Burlington?? We only have 1 top tier places in the whole city in Penny Cluse (and Sneakers in Winooski of course) and both of them have great value for their quality! Do they call you internet trolls because as a person you are small ??
Bring on The Friendly Toast! Us Burlingtonians welcome you!

Re: “The Friendly Toast to Open on Burlington's St. Paul Street

All the naysayers obviously have never been lucky enough to experience the amazing food or ambiance The Friendly Toast provides. Good food, not too expensive. Delicious drinks. And lots of variety with the menu. Im so excited!!

Re: “Snowcap Brewing Company Brings on the Cold Coffees

"..The business already sells a high-test cold-brew with beans from Timor-Leste in Indonesia..." Timor-Leste is not in Indonesia. It is a completely separate country.
