Re: “Church & Main

Not what we'd hoped for
We'd heard good things so we decided to try it out. We were seated outside at 7:40pm. Fifteen minutes later the hostess (we hadn't seen the server yet), came and took our drink order. Ten minutes later (still no server), she came back and took our dinner order. The glasses of wine were a bit skimpy and the carpaccio was missing two ingredients that were listed on the menu. I alerted the server, who we finally met, and she was apologetic, saying she'd be back with the missing items. So we waited....ten minutes went by and she came back with one ingredient (instead of just returning our plate to the kitchen to be re-done), and explained that there was a typo on the menu. OK. on top of all that, the carpaccio was not good. At 8:30pm we received our dinner, by then we were famished. No bread is served in the interim, fyi. Our chateau steaks were great, cooked properly, and the portion was reasonable for the price. I was feeling better. At 9:00 we were done with our meal and decided to order dessert.This is the real debacle. 20 minutes passed and we never got it. We'd paid our bill in the meantime, trying to expedite our departure. the server visited us, then the manager, apologizing. They comped us our wine and dessert, but never said they'd actually cancelled the dessert order, and we never asked them to. Finally, at 9:30, we just got up and left-somewhat confused and frustrated. One of the oddest dining experiences I've had. funny thing is, they weren't packed with people, and there were other servers. Not sure what the issue was but with all the other options in town, I don't think we'll be back. Oh, and i found a hair on our silverware, and one in my meal. Too bad, I had high hopes for this place. Food: 3 Ambiance: 2 Service: 1

Re: “Last Rights: A Putney Woman Becomes the Third Vermonter to End Her Life Using New Law

thank you for publishing this article. I don't personally use conventional healthcare, but each should have a right to do what they feel is best for them.

Interesting to put this beside the demands to force people to be vaccinated who have used the exemption (I am one). I realize that communicable disease isn't the same as non-communicable disease, but forcing people to put things in their body (or disallowing it) doesn't seem right. there are alternatives that can bless everyone if people can take a step back and get a handle on the fear.

Maggie is bigger than her body and her form, and her spirit will live in infinitude and eternity, always held in Love, blessing her family, friends, and all with what she was while she was with us.
