yea it would definitely be hard for me to hold my tongue while witnessing these things. i fear for the generations to come when no one seems to be disciplining their children anymore. a whole generation of kids just running buck wild. and the couple eating the whole wheel of brie? i just dont even know what to say about that one.

POLL: Can you walk to an actual grocery store?

im sure living in a place like london it can become a tourist trap, but at least u have all that within walking distance. of course living and working in the rocky mountains of colorado, "my" rivers become complete tourist traps all summer, but of course its a necessary evil for the economy. thats awesome that u have all that so close.

u know, i guess its the fact that its trying to be something else. im ok with tofu just being tofu, but when u try to make tofu into cheese, turkey, hamburger, ice cream, etc...thats when im saying "no thanks". there are probably different brands of tofurkey and the one i had was ick.

POLL: Can you walk to an actual grocery store?

oooh yea, me too. i live near what u might call a "marginal" neighborhood, but ive never really felt unsafe walking around among the great hispanic and asian markets there. ive lived in bad parts of southern and northern california, so the "hoods" out here seem pretty tame by comparison. i feel for u because ive definitely been there.

yea me too if i could afford it. u basically walk to whatever u want there. not real practical to have a car unless u are super-rich, since it costs almost as much to rent garage space as it does to pay for ur house or apartment. sort of like manhattan. most people walk, ride bikes, take cabs or take public transpo of some sort.

i grew up in northern california, not far from san francisco. so i have to admit that when i was moving to denver, i though, oh great, there goes all my great dining. nothing but rocky mountain oysters and chain restos. boy was i wrong!

POLL: Can you walk to an actual grocery store?

colorado is such a trip that way. if u live somewhere like leadville u have to make an actual "trek" to the supermarket. but in southwest denver, where i live, there is the best, most "urban" china/viet-town along with amazing hispanic stores and hole in the wall restos. are u familiar with south federal in denver? at least u were close to great fly fishing! (im a guide) and then in aurora (east denver) u get the african/middle eastern and korean joints. u would think u were in queens ny or something!

i think that a lot of times, even in the "best" restaurants, salad doesnt get the attention that it deserves. i think a lot of chefs maybe just see salad as something to hold diners over until they get their entree. because, contrary to what fowler may think, i have been to some excellent restaurants, with amazing entrees, but the salad was more of an afterthought. i appreciate a good salad, cut properly :) with good, fresh, thoughtful ingredients. the freshly made, table side caesar seems to be disappearing.

englewood, southwest denver. the only actual grocery store besides the 7-11 convenience type store that would be a quick 10 minute or less walk is kings sooper. but if i drive/bike a couple miles away, it becomes a plethora of asian/hispanic stores and restaurants, along with a great farmers market in the veg/fruit season, tons of taco trucks and hole in the wall chinese/viet restaurants.

yea i like soy glazed fried eggs......probably not so much on pancakes. theres a place in sacramento, el chico, where u can get fried rice as a side at breakfast instead of potatoes.
