Re: “Do It Yourself

In the Spicy Carrot, Cucumber, and Avocado Salad, is it really just two baby carrots? Or maybe it was supposed to be two pounds?

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables!

What a load of silliness. Sure, eat your veggies, but that does not mean cutting out bacon (or pork belly). I combine veggies and bacon in 3 dishes I offer at my food cart, Bacon PDX. Have you not heard of Paleo Diets? Fats and oils are essential for healthy brain operation, and in other physiological ways, too. Everything moderation and balance, including moderation and balance. As for bacon, read this: http://authoritynutrition.com/is-bacon-bad-or-good/

@Susancarey: if you could read without your eyes clouded over by indignant rage, you'd see that McFadden is making that precise point.

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables!

Why would anyone buy products from Sysco?
We'll over 65% of our the produce we distribute is sourced locally.
Helping local farmers get there product to local restaurants that's why.....
Sorry I guess you didn't know that.....

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I know it was a typo, Leit, I think Jesse meant that Floater is a Greek band.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

@Todd apparently you haven't used a smart phone before. Have anything relevant to the argument at hand? I thought not.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I don't even know what a greet band is. They play inside the entrance to Walmart?

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I had the same experience at the Multnomah Whiskey Library. And I'm their target demographic! If anyone's considering it, just head to the Uptown Billiards Club - that place is awesome, and has none of the artificial ridiculousness.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

Floater is a greet band, Ned. And though you disagree, it's no reason to be so rude and completely discredit yourself at the same time.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

@Ned Clearly you know nothing of Floater or it's Floydian influences. I'm sorry you feel so stereotyped as a flannel wearing hipster that you must dish it out on someone else. This is why I don't bother with the low brow Mercury.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I have a soft spot for Shanghai Tunnel. That tiny smoking patio that opens into the weird upstairs part that doesn't even have taps is pretty nice in the summer, and the dark, gloomy basement can be a sanctuary from the overflowing Bro triangle. At least until about 8pm, when it starts to get receive that overflow. The staff is friendly, happy hour lasts til 7 and is dirt cheap for well drinks, and the food is decent.

Did no one go check out the renovated Tube? I'm curious what it's like now.

Thanks for all the write-ups. I'm always blank when trying to figure out somewhere to go downtown and there are a lot of spots I just forget exist.

A++ for refusing to play Multnomah Whiskey Library's game, Ned.

Re: “Spice World

Secret Aardvark is so good because they don't over-vinegar and over-salt it. You can actually taste the pepper.
