Re: “It's 2018 Time: Who Might Challenge Gov. Scott?

Loose the tie and the suit. Focus on safe water, clean air and healthy kids. How is that for a refreshing start? James will bring a strong no-nonsense approach to the 2018 race. Will he win? Does it matter? James is on neither side of the aisle, he's right up there in the bleachers with the rest of us. Establishment politicians will just continue to rearrange the chairs of Capitalism. Pathetic.

As for Dave, ad hominem attacks and name calling are not the VT way. The VT right wing might be emboldened by the rise of their agenda nationwide yet any endeavor based on bile, prejudice and ignorance will fail, hopefully all this hate will not break our resolve to move the State forward.

Re: “Why Are Top Vermont Restaurants Closing?

Burlington has a lot of good raw products to offer year round. Head out to City Market, Healthy Living or even Hannafords and Price Shopper and you will have a wide array of good ingredients. Even pre-cooked organic meals at $9.99 a pound or less if conventional. Join a CSA and you are in an even better position.

Give me $100 and I'll make the best dinner for 4 adults and 4 children in under one hour. I'm talking surf and turf with bernaise, salad, dessert and with a couple good bottles of wine and fancy soda for the children. That meal, first doesn't exist in Burlington, and second it did would have to be around $400 and I am willing to bet the steak will not be as good as the one you get at the Shelburne Meat Market.

The only reason we go out is well to go out! get a sitter, breathe some fresh air and meet with friends, the location is not that important, I'm perfectly happy sitting on a blanket at Summervale or eating at one of the many cheap eateries - and there are many - instead of feeling ripped off - yes I've gone to Hen of the Woods many times, but look at the size of the hanger steak and tell me you are not being ripped off. Yes I understand that rent in Burlington is ridiculous from $40 to $70 a square foot and fine dining will suffer - that's to bad. But you know what's not bad? all the food trucks, the potlucks, the pop up dinners, the outdoor festivals, the farmer's market. The specialty food items that you can bring home. Food is alive and well in Vermont the scene is what's changing.
