dirty deeds... and the dunderchief

 

the cracks beneath the door

i finally got to try vincenzo's on saturday - the place was absolutely top notch. great atmosphere - it's not too big, maybe a few dozen tables, but still felt really small and comfortable. the service was decent, a little slow, and they gave my reservation to some other "Hall, party of four", although we still got seated right away.

the food was fantastic - markedly so by the fact that they got renee to eat an alfredo dish, something she's always avoided. i had a a mix of scallops, shrimp, salmon, peppers, mushrooms, tomatos and capers and angel-hair pasta that was perfect - incredibly simple, with a little olive oil and parmigiano. i absolutely cannot wait to go back - there were a dozen or so other things on the menu that i wanted to try.

or, if you're up for some free food, get down to the BW3's at UC tonight - the first 100 people in the door tomorrow at the grand opening get a year's worth of free wings. there were a few dozen people camped out this afternoon. if you want your wings to be cooked, though...

I ran by there last night and there were definitely people setting up tents outside the door. I think I'd have a hard time feeling safe enough to sleep in a tent on Calhoun Ave.

And that's opposed to the shootings happening in West Chester?

Oh good, that old chestnut.

We get it, Steve. You love the city, and the suburbs suck.

We're not going to change your mind and you're not going to change years of conditioning.

Look, I'm not trying to start that crap again. But you know how I feel about blanket statements made from ignorance...

And the Suburbs don't suck. Why they are nice open places with houses, cars, children, and a myriad of other things families can do together. Like trick or treating coming up soon. Why, you don't find that in the city. Except on my street. I mean sure, you have 26 year old neighborhood kids asking for a sucker, and you'd wish they might have shaved the dirtstach and put on a clean shirt, but hey at least they aren't knockin around they bitches. So a small victory for the city one night a year. Yay!

I'm not speaking from ignorance...I live right down the street on Riddle Rd. I really like living in the city as opposed to the suburbs. It's because I live in Clifton that I can say that there's a certain amount of risk involved with pitching a tent on Calhoun Ave.
