Re: “Yangser Dorjee’s Himalaya Restaurant

Himalaya is a great new lunch spot for the downtown crowd. It is spacious with views of the water (if you look beyond the old warehouse-type buildings), and there is plenty of seating to go around. I had a combination of 6 momo, two of each variety (beef, chicken, and vegetarian). They were just the right mix of savory and spicy, and the red sauce that accompanied them added a wonderful zing. The service was fast and attentive, and it was easy to get in and out within an hour and get back to the office (although I'm sure a more leisurely meal would have been possible). To sum up: 5 stars!

Re: “Long Trail Sues Burton Over 'Take a Hike' Trademark

Trademark infringement depends on a likelihood of confusion, which is pretty dubious here. Long Trail and Burton are both well known names, and when they use the phrase "Take a Hike" in conjunction with their names, logos, and other identifying marks, it's unlikely that consumers will confuse the two. Plus it's pretty difficult to mistake a hoodie for a beer.

Re: “Senator Challenges Appointments to Vermont Act 250 Panel

Chris Person is clearly a Prog, not a Dem, so I don't buy Degree's argument. That said, there's something to be said for appointing one Republican from each chamber of the legislature to this committee to make sure there is a true diversity of views represented.

Re: “Backpedaling: Burlington Residents Challenge Plans for More Bike Lanes

You know you've written a great story when advocates for both sides are complaining in the comments that the coverage is slanted against them. Excellent job, Katie.

Re: “Hop Jam Canceled Due to Slow Ticket Sales

Just a guess, but it might be because tickets to this event have always been crazy expensive.

Re: “Winooski Gay Bar Once Known as Mister Sister Has Closed

This is a sad saga. How hard was it to say "Oh my goodness, I had no idea that was a slur in the trans community. Can you help me think of a new name?" Even if you think the point the critics are making is dumb, it's a good business decision not to unnecessarily offend your customer base.

Re: “Champlain College Will Use UVM Frat House as a Dorm

"Aggressive living" is such a wonderful euphemism for the deplorable things Fiji no doubt did to that property.

Next up, the Rebel Alliance sues Congress for passing laws rather than holding nationwide referenda.
