Furthermore, it is actually a violation of the merchant agreement with visa and mastercard to charge a fee or set a minimum for the transaction. Either take them or don't. I highly doubt a place as wildly popular as voodoo doughnuts would have a problem paying the processing fees, especially with the higher volume of customers they'd bring in with cards.
I just hope this location also stays open as late as the other one! What a great place to have a westside location.
Although I didn't initially vote for Amanda Fritz, I've been really happy to see her be the voice of dissent amongst a council that's full of, as you said, glad-handers or oily hobnobbers.
I'm sort of a swing voter on Mayor Adams, and I could care less about the scandal from a couple years ago. I like Steve Novick and if he runs against Adams, that's a tough decision for me, but would love a guy like him to replace guys like Leonard and Saltzman, both of whom I'm sick of.
You'll now be able to smell it.
The minute I saw Pooh talking about building around Brandon Roy, I stopped taking him seriously because it's clear he has no idea what the fuck he's talking about. Roy is done, barring the miracle "meniscus transplant" or whatever surgery he's contemplating. Even then, we'd be fooling ourselves as Blazer fans to keep putting our hopes on the guy. It's sad, it's awful, but it's something we've been dealing with for over a season and a half now. Even when he came back from injury last year he didn't look great; when he rushed back to try to make noise in the playoffs he was worse and this season he was a corpse.
I like the team building around Wesley Matthews, LaMarcus Aldridge and possible Nic Batum. They're more fun to watch, win games, and scrap it up with good teams. Until we get a legitimate star at guard to complement LMA's strong play, we'll be sort of spinning tires like the Hawks or Mavs of previous years.
It's simple: the creatives that are overflowing the city lack the entreprenuerial spirit or financial backing to undertake a venture that would fill up completely empty 87,000 sq. ft. I like this idea, personally for my own benefit since I live relatively close to where this would be and I don't own a car to go out to the burbs.
Although Target might want to look at a feasibility study focusing on how well the downtown Borders (another primarily suburban big box store for all intents and purposes) fared with shoplifting and transients, or how the Safeway on 11th and Jefferson is handling it.
I'm looking forward to seeing whatever Megan's enormous character flaws are going to be next season. She seems way too good to be true. I hated Don breaking up with Faye; she was smart and beautiful and, as you said, probably too much for him. He needs someone who will idolize him and take care of the kids. For now, Meg seems perfect for that. Also, the comment about her teeth, fucking lol. But it's weird because although everyone predicted a Meg and Don relationship, no one thought it would get THAT serious, THAT quick.
As for season 5 predictions, I don't think we'll see a Don vs. Peggy storyline. She respects him way too much, even with the end of episode. I'm fearing a letdown next year after a pretty good couple seasons. The Sopranos started going downhill around Season 5 too. If Steve Buscemi pops up on this show, it's done for.
