Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

Did these Moslems tell the author of the article that Moslem charity is for Moslems only? They are forbidden from giving charity to kafir, that's infidel for the uninformed. Read the Koran for all the other rules and ways in which Moslems are taught to mistreat non-Moslems. They will deny it to your face, as Islam allows them to lie (taqiyya) to kafir, but it's all in Islam's foundational documents. Islam is wholly incompatible with Western civilization, and we ought to halt all Moslem immigration to this country.

Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

My family are Orthodox Christians from Syria. I posted a comment expressing my concern about Muslim immigration because of Muslim bigotry toward other religions, a fact that my family knows from experience. Why did Seven Days take it down? Why is this site afraid to publish the truth?

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

What is not mentioned in your article is the number of posts that were deleted from the comments on the Instagram and Facebook accounts because monarch and milkeeeds owner didnt agree with what was being said. I find the public shaming and sharing of a persons name In poor taste and said so and in both cases, I was blocked from the conversation. If you want the right to post controversial content on social media then man up and let everyone comment.

Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

Dear VermonHeart. Seven days might have taken down your posts because Vermont is full of liberals to whom Islam good, Christian bad. Of course, the facts are, Islam is the most violent religion in the world, in parts. So that does not fit with liberal thinking...so they do what they always do when they find a contradiction. They ban it.

Re: “Poké Bowls Coming to Williston

As a Hawaiian I am really excited to see an authentic poke restaurant open up in this area! It's well past due!

I'd also tell the gentleman who commented before to be a bit more open-minded.

Id encourage all my fellow vermonters to give this place a try it looks legit!

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

This is awesome. People are so intently focused on themselves and what they want. A grown person got upset because the waiter didn't "wish them happy birthday"? When did we become a nation of spoiled children? Grow up. Stop whining. I'm glad this was posted to expose the ridiculousness and entitlement of this person. Shame away. Might actually do some good. Anyone who's ever waited tables for a living would probably agree.

Re: “Big Things Are Happening for Gretel-Ann Fischer

I'm glad that Gretal Ann did not win. I can not support someone that deliberately sabotages her competition. I said to myself, Gretal Ann must be extremely insecure if she feels the only way she can win it to play dirty. I would not support her or her bakery.

Re: “Poké Bowls Coming to Williston

Very refreshing to see a local, family-owned restaurant opening in Williston! So excited to have the opportunity to try something new!

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

Re: “Big Things Are Happening for Gretel-Ann Fischer

I am so glad you did not win, Gretel-Ann. To deliberately cheat and sabotage others and then say it was justified because of competition? You, my dear are what is wrong with people these days. Win at all costs... To hell with anyone else. "I deserve everything because I played most strategically" What a load of CRAP!. What did you teach your children? Your staff? Your crocodile tears were annoying throughout the whole competition, because out of one side of your mouth you are crying poverty and how you needed the $ to keep your shop open. Then out of the other, you slag everyone around you and throw them all under the bus. You are not to be trusted. Jenn was an outstanding competitor who showed strength of character and never compromised basic morals just to win. She tried her best with what she had and I think she should have won the whole thing. I somehow think it didn't even occur to her to cheat, whereas that was what you chose to do throughout the whole competition. I am no fan of Ashley,but I think Buddy was wise not to choose you as the winner. If you were capable of being that deceptive and justify it, how could he trust that you would not sabotage his business with cheating, lying and stealing? Then you sealed the deal in my eyes by saying that Buddy was running a daycare when he chose Ashley. You are a sore loser. You sank yourself into quite a pit of distrust by your own choices and actions.. and I would not step foot into your bakery even if I was starving.......pathetic!

This is the saddest news I have ever heard. Franny's was the best bar in Burlington!

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

Mark Lade - the waiter is entitled to a tip, unless the service was particularly poor, because that is how waiters get paid. Do you think the waiter should work basically for free or at a loss? If you want to change the law to ensure waiters get paid regardless of tip, feel free. Meantime, this is the world we live in.

In any case it wasn't the waiter posting the receipt on social media, it was the restaurant.

Re: “Juice Couture: In Burlington, It's Cool to Drink Your Vegetables

Seems odd to have folks who clearly do not like juice, review all the local juice places. Since they dislike pretty much everything, this just comes off as unnecessary mean bashing of perfectly innocent local businesses. would expect better of Seven Days.

Re: “Big Things Are Happening for Gretel-Ann Fischer

WHAT A LOW-LIFE!!! Wow, is this where we've come where a cheater like this person could be praised by anybody??? If this lady would blatantly cheat while on national TV I can't imagine what she does behind closed doors in her bakery. I'm sure she lies cheats and steals from customers. She's an embarrassment to Vermonters, we are honorable, good people. You, my dear, ARE NOT!!!!!

Re: “Burlington's Bluebird Tavern Has Closed for Good

When they dropped all the entrees from the menu, eliminated the awesome focaccia, and introduced those way too pricey, too small small plates it was only matter of time before they lost all their regulars and turned away all new customers. It really sucks for the staff that the complaints fell on deaf ears. This is a real good lesson for restaurant owners. You need to maintain communications and listen to your customers, instead of letting onsite management double down on bad decisions or allow them to ignore or dismiss complaints.

Re: “Big Things Are Happening for Gretel-Ann Fischer

I was really disappointed to see her move on to the top three. She should have gone several competitions back. But the worst was seeing her continue forward after deliberately and blatantly cheating. It's impossible to respect a person who does that. Just look at the lessons she's teaching her kids, and her employees. It's OK to sabotage your competition in the name of "competition." Is it really? That's a cop-out and a line of BS, Gretel Ann. You didn't deserve to be in the top three - you're more of a bottom feeder, in my honest opinion. I have no respect for you or your presumably failing business (though I doubt any of the stories you told, along with your big crocodile tears along the way).

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.

Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

For suspicious reasons previous posts here have disappeared without reason. Yet very intemperate posts calling specific people "nasty" are permitted. Hmm.
