Call me an old fashion prude, but I don't think this is appropriate. "Mom Bakes Vagina Cookies For 2nd Graders"

Since this is my thread I think it's ok for me to ask that we keep things neat, sloppy doesn't bode well for this topic.

My mother always said; "If your going to have a labia on your cookie, better make it a fancy one". Looks like she was right.

The Perils of Coffee Snobbery

Ok so Chow has a new font going on I realize that, but is it just me that read this thread as;

"The Penis of Coffee Snobbery"????? Until I opened the thread I was sitting here staring at the title wondering WTF this could have been about.

I'm sorry but for the 3-4 feet I set from my monitor that's why I read.

(Silly) question about ingesting soap.

It was a valiant effort.

What cut of beef is brisket? - Alternate name??

drongo/paulj/jpr_54,

I'm not being critical of any of your response(s), you've all offered good information to those inquiring. I'm just curious none of you questioned these posts? Obviously it's an 8 year old thread, revived by a 1st time poster, followed up by another 1st time poster and then "thanks" by another first time poster responding as if they were the OP!?!?!?! Is it just me or does the thread have a Twilight Zone quality to it?

Western Monmouth Lunch Party Location

What about The Metro, they have the upstairs which I think would accommodate that many people in privacy. Food's not bad, nice atmosphere.

Also Osteria Cuccina in Marlboro has a back room that could probably accommodate that amount.

If price is more a concern I understand the Gold Coral has a private room!! (joke)

4th Annual Marlboro Blues & BBQ Festival this Saturday Sept. 20

Perhaps I reading you incorrectly, however you are making it sound as if the food vendors were invited by the event? Generally the event accommodates whoever signs up or registered. Given whatever their space will allow.

Narrowly averted checkout line scam?

"in the best case, Dude and cashier are clueless idiots."

My vote is for the best case.

Narrowly averted checkout line scam?

Well what if there is another shopper in on it, at the time he had a 2nd bag of corn, hiding on a grassy knoll.

You mean it hasn't? Ohhhh the horror! You mean I registered at eGullet for no reason??

Have we found out who is in charge yet?

Yeah, sorry! For what it's worth I can click the "x" and they do go away. Although they do sometimes come in rapid succession to each other maybe 3-4 at a time.

Have any frozen yogurt joints in your area closed?

1 or 2 in Red Bank closed, 5 miles south on 35 in Shrewsbury (Trader Joe's Plaza) one closed as well. That leaves the one in Monmouth Mall to be the only one in the Red Bank-Eatontown Area to my knowledge.

When I use to manage 2000 Park Ave. in South Plainfield that was our after hours hang out. The owners of 2000 were friends with Gus, the father, and that place did one hell of a business. Sad to learn its closed.

(Silly) question about ingesting soap.

All I can tell you is between the ages of 3-10 I probably ingested as much soap as humanly possible. My mother was of the soap in mouth discipline for my smart talk and or potty mouth as I grew older. However what my mother didn't know is I secretly washed my own mouth out and on a few occasions actually consumed soap as well. This was my training myself and my palate so when my mother did it I was use to the taste and affects of it and I could take my punishment without flinching. While she won the war(s) I won the battles of not letter her see me sweat.

I also made some extra side money in grammar school on various soap consuming cafeteria bets.

Noticeable side affects;

Occasional diarrhea (could be the worms I also ate on bets)

Rare fart bubble

I curse like a fucking sailor

Can't post a photo with iOS 8

Steve, since IOS 8 is still very new and with any new or upgraded system there are always kinks to be worked out. I don't know this for sure, but I do know that there is no problem with IOS 7, so the problem is probably on Apples side rather than Chows. Again, not 100% sure of this but I'm making an informed assumption there isn't much Chow can do about the problem.

Bistro Rylo ~ Ocean

Funny I recently passed there and the large glass windows facing 35 had been covered. I said the place looked like it was closed, but just figured it was a way to keep light /heat out of the dining room. Now I wonder if my initial gut instinct was correct.

Firebird's Wood Fired Grill at the Monmouth Mall Eatontown, NJ

Welcome to Chow!!! I'm glad your experience at Firebirds was so exceptional it motivated you to sign up to this site just to share your experience with all of us! I look forward to hearing of your future dining experiences.

As far as Firebirds goes, I have been back a few times since the first week and have continued to be less than impressed. I'm glad you and a few others have enjoyed, but it's not my cup of tea. I still encourage others to look elsewhere.

I bet the corn was 5 for $1.00 and he had 6 in the bag too!!!

Private message feature?

((psssst hey cronker)) is the method they have decided that works best for private messages. They spent a lot of money and research into that, please use it wisely.

Pasta with Bolognese sauce

I'm not a big fan of Bolognese sauce, but my son has ordered it at Il Giardinello's in Toms River and I've tried it and it was very good. HUGE portion, decent price and overall good food.
