...learn words and spelling in order to be understood.
That was very difficult to read. Proof read or don't comment.

The equity here relies on the same thoughtful concern that is extended to the server's financial situation is also extended to the person bringing in their own bottle! Finances are tight!

There must be an entire tribe of chicken throwers out there.
Once at dinner with a friend(!) of many years, she started tossing her finished chicken bones at my plate while I was still eating! It was inexplicable and I believe, unconscious on her part, if you can believe that. Others told me it was hostility b/c I'm a veggie, a way of saying 'F' that!
But I never ever made any kind of deal about not eating meat!
It is the kind of treatment many veggies get from carnivores.

Is there anywhere to have a nice dinner in downtown LA?

Gratuitous, ipsedixit. One of CH's goals s/b to find good food AND ambiance at an affordable price point.
The "let them eat cake' so rampant here is tiresome.

Gourmet Soup Kitchen West Hills

I'm on my way Simi! Can't believe no one has responded to this
kitchen of 'profound soups' their offerings are like a dream come true for this food seeker. Many locations also.

Maybe it is just too pure!
Or maybe, looking at the scarcity of responses to ALL the things put up...maybe CH is finally suffering from the unpleasantness of overmoderation.

Why does Ralph's send me coupons for items that don't have?

like getting a coupon from Vons--but only after you have bought a years supply of some product, then they give you a coupon FOR THE SAME PRODUCT that must be used within 10 days!

Good way to doctor up jar spaghetti sauce?

The quickest way is to saute up in good pure olive oil (not EVOO),
some chopped onion, chopped green pepper, chopped fennel and after saute, add garlic and parmesan,
OR even better TJ's SHAVED grana padano parmesan, which is exceptional. I start with TJ's marinara, it is very good.

Swanky b'day dinner spot needed: a vegetarian, a pescetarian, and a gaggle of meat-eaters....

You can always use google when you do not know something;
it will give you a complete answer. I even use google for correct spelling.

Food that will satisfy Indian vegetarians and American meat-eaters?

"vegetarians of whatever stripe should realize they're guests and cannot always be reasonably accommodated."

And please, although you neglected to do so,
do take that idea of guests not always being accommodated and apply it to your fellow beef eaters. As one chowhound suggested, maybe the carnivores could go without that dratted beef
for one meal.

Food that will satisfy Indian vegetarians and American meat-eaters?

HA! See my experience with this. it is right below.

Its thanksgiving again a year later; time to add a thought:
HA!
When I used to bring MY OWN Thanksgiving food (hot dishes like Mushroom pie, wild rice, etc), those ridicule slinging carnivores managed to hog my food and it disappeared way before their own turkey/etc and worse, before I even got any!

Bagels... lox... cream cheese...

Bagels... lox... cream cheese...

Barney's for belly lox; Trader Joe's cream cheese trumps them
all, even Philly, and beware the rest, they are all too sweet. I prefer the whipped, but reg is probably just as good. we get water bagels from my local Topanga Creek Market. No branding,
just good bagels in a bag, and its hard to find water bagels.
I'm beginning to like wild smoked salmon on my bagel.
