Palate Memory.....................

Funny I thought the same thing at the time, the only thing missing was the quart or pint of milk they use to serve us.

Palate Memory.....................

Awwww sorry to hear that geneo. It's funny but as a kid we ate a lot of roasts, pork, beef etc. My mother did make good gravy and meatballs, but it wasn't till an adult I realized she wasn't a very good cook. While we ate well I came to realize she had a very limited spectrum which she always stayed within.

10 of the Shore's top spots for pork roll

Tru dat! I was roll-less this morning so I chose the frying pan grilled cheese method, can't make a true breakfast sandwich on toast.

Well you have to give some back story, where do these beverages bring you back to? I'm imagining some smoke filled pool hall where you hung under age, hustling pool for beer and smokes money.

Will Chowhound ever be a major player in food reviews and discussion

I would have no problem using my real name, but I've had some problems in the past with exposing myself, so I tend to shy away from that now.

Palate Memory.....................

There is a thread somewhere on here about "Palatable frozen foods", which brings me to a recent experience I had. A couple of weeks ago I opened my freezer to find a box of Ellio's pizza. I really had no interest in Ellio's pizza, but for whatever reason I took out one rectangle sheet of the frozen pizza and placed it in the oven @ 350 for the 10-12 minutes.

I took it out of the oven, took one bite and was immediately brought back to grammar school days. At my grammar school we only had "Hot Lunch" once a week, and once a month that "Hot Lunch" was Ellios Pizza. Immediately my taste buds brought me back to the Church Cafeteria....the smell, the sounds of kids screaming around me, the simple taste of that forzen Ellios Pizza brought back such a rush of memories.

How about the rest of my fellow hounds? Is there something you can eat that takes you immediately back to a special time or place?

Yes, excellent advice once again from the all knowing MGZ!! I also agree an 1/8th is what I could consider the ideal cut for some very yummy pork roll. Also remember as the picture(s) demonstrate, a proper PREC sandwich is never made with just one slice of pork roll, you stack those babies high!!!

Oh, that shucks!! (see what I did right there??)

I missed it last year and was looking forward to going, but lines tend to piss me off. Even the lobster fest, while I enjoyed it, there were only one or two vendors actually selling whole lobster, it was mostly lobster salads/sandwiches. It was also a bit of a challenge to eat, clean, pick out the lobster meat with plastic utensils.

HEY!! You know what, when I just opened this thread to read the latest response the picture from the article was full screen for a second or two. The picture for this article show's a sandwich with sausage patties on it!?!?! NO.....NO....NO self respecting PREC sandwich is going to share itself with sausage patties.....that is just wrong, wrong, wrong!!

You can put homefries or a hash-brown on it, that is an acceptable addition, but under NO CIRCUMSTANCE can you have a proper PREC with sausage or bacon or any other meat than pork roll. Shame, shame, shame on the APP for this.

Wow....how did I miss that thread? The only thing is it's in Trenton.......I don't like pork roll that much. Also according to MGZ The Gov is already the pork roll king, so I don't even have a title to go for.

Ugggghh good catch on the Sriracha.

I will make this comment, I don't like any runny yolk on my PREC, give me a well done fried egg. I'm not a fan of things "squirting in my mouth" when I bite them. (yes I did just loft a slow pitch over the plate for you and other to hit out of the park!)

Clueless moderation?

When I have faced similar situations, I just "un-follow" the thread. Actually today the thread on this board about "pagenation" or whatever the title was, it has close to 500+- responses, hey guess what? There is nothing I need to read on here after 100+ responses let alone 500+-.

No I did not, although I'm hoping they have the lobster and oyster festivals again this year.

How to word invitation- not paying for drinks

Hey! Thanks for the follow up, I truly appreciate when people report back the results of their inquiry. So........how did you phrase or address it with your guests?

How to word invitation- not paying for drinks

Just to clarify a couple of things....."I would like to pay for the drinks" would insinuate that you want to run a "tab" and you want to pay the tab at the end of the night.

"If I offer an open bar"....an "Open Bar" would be where you pay the bar a flat fee, per person, per hour and it's an open bar. People can drink as much or little as they like, and it's all included in the per-person price you are paying.

Running a tab can cost you a fortune if you have some true drinkers (like me) in the crowd. A true "Open Bar" would solve that but you are generally paying more for those who don't drink, to off set for those who do. (like me)

'Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown' to feature Jersey Shore spots — NewsWorks

I for one don't really care for Bourdain, but I'm happy to see he's going to be giving some attention to the Knife and Fork in AC, one of the most under-recognized restaurants in AC if you ask me.

Clueless moderation?

There are more than one mod(s) that work reviewing posts and flag's. Again, with everything being subjective in the past maybe the person who reviewed your flag, viewed it similar to yourself. There is a reason they offer you the text box to provide your comments or reason, if you chose not to use them I hardly think that's the mod's fault.

The Cabin - Freehold

It's a Family Friendly Biker Bar!! Just avoid Hell's Angel Tuesdays! (joke) It's certainly not a biker bar, although they have ample tables/dining, I still classify it as a bar first and restaurant second.

Clueless moderation?

I'm not looking to start a fight here, but I find several of your points rather objectionable.

"that I've flagged with no response from the mods until I explain why I've flagged them."
I'm not really sure what you are complaining about? It seems that you find things "obscene" so the mod's are looking for what you find objectionable? Your not complaining that once you explain why you flagged them that they aren't responding. You do realize that obscenity is very subjective, what you find obscene I might not blink an eye at, I can completely understand why the mods would look for some follow up discussion from you. The last thing I want them doing is just removing every post that is flagged simply because it was flagged.

"I've left many unflagged, and they remain. What gives?" Well if you're not flagging them, and we don't know if anyone else is, what do you expect to happen? You do realize that ever single post is not reviewed, right? So again, I'm unsure what your complaint here is......sorry.

"There also seems to be a cultural disconnect, with political "gotchas" being allowed to remain." I'm not sure what "cultural disconnect" there can be, perhaps if you copy pasted an example, but I'm clueless on this one.

While I haven't been as active lately as I have in the past, I can say that from what I see the moderation, in my opinion, is about the best I've experienced since I've joined the site. There were certainly many bumps in the road to get here, but I for one have no problems with it.

dates gone from collapsed posts

Here's what I'm thinkin' (and I'm not that bright so don't hold to much faith in what I'm about to tell you).....I checked on my phone (I-phone) and the dates are there. I'm wondering.....are you using an form of an ad-blocker on your phone? I know when I used them, depending on the settings, I often "lost" some functionality of the site. That's all I got for you, good luck.
