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.

We've discussed this already and apparently this is fine with them, sorry.

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.

Well my perfect record of knowing nobody that has ever been there is still intact. So.....you just happened to have a 49 year old review of a restaurant you have never been too just laying around? Interesting.............

Sandwiches in Monmouth County

Not just stays in business but thrives! I just read an article recently that they have double the locations of Mc Donalds. Staggering in my opinion, especially under the ruse of "Eat Fresh". I have witnessed one fairly local to me (Rt. 35 Eatontown) that closed. You don't see that very often. Although a Wendy's roughly a 1/4 mile up the road also closed. Probably victims of the Ft. Monmouth closure.

Queso Pop Up Ad

There is a new pop up ad for Queso Day Sept 18th? It's a little more than a pop-up it takes over the entire screen, you have to click the "continue" button for it to allow you to return to the site. It's happening pretty often on most boards. I'm currently using my I-phone not a PC.

You would think it would be us, the shirtless, with our piercingly hard nipples in this cold autumn air that would be complaining.

Any chance for some chow pasties at least?

New glitch

+1 What Lina said.

Just a FYI, a lot of time's when I'm posting I'm at work, so it can take me a long time to complete a fairly simple post because I get interrupted. ( Nerve of these work people )

Often times I've noticed when I leave a window open too long and then I go to post the page just get's "hung up", the circle turns but nothing happens. Sometimes I would loose the text, sometimes I would copy/paste it in a new window etc. When I'm writing a long post I write it in word, then I can leave it for hours if need me with no ill effects of time. Even if my computer crashes word automatically backs up a copy of any un-saved documents. Then once I'm finished I just copy/paste/post!!

With Jacq gone, who are the mods 'reporting to'?

Seems to be a recurring theme.

I wasn't asked for my size or address, this thread is the first I'm learning of any of this. :-(
