New California law allows dogs to dine out

most of the dogs I have seen in Hollywood/Hallandale Beach(Broward County,Florida) are not sitting under table they are sitting on chairs, etc.

I would not mind if they were under table-

If I want my cafecito- I really don't want to share my table outside with a dog sitting on the chair or table.

Most owners of cafes are afraid to say something bcz they have been threatened by patrons who have non-service/or phony service dogs

New California law allows dogs to dine out

I don't mind if my friends have pets.
They have enough common sense to have their pets in other room until we finish eating.
.
My friends would not bring pets to a restaurant.

One of my friends has a dog,cat and a cockateil-
I have eaten at her home many times.

The issue is not liking animals-it is having them eat at restaurants.

New California law allows dogs to dine out

it has not been years and years-2012 to be exact

http://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes...

it is a local exemption-

you need to read the bill

5. Dogs shall not be allowed on chairs, tables, or other furnishings

there are several requirements that restaurants must do in order to comply including diagrams and cleaning of tables,etc. I have not seen any of these in Broward County

You need to familiarize yourself with Florida and U.S.A. laws

stifling my opinion/censorship. I think they are tying to keep the board in their eyes as "professional"
the post was on not about food board-

I am not a food professional-I am a retired Jewish Health Care Professional who enjoys to cook. I also have an undergraduate degree in Home Economics and Nutrition as well as my graduate degree in Masters in Public Health(Community Health Education).

In addition, to my interest in food preparation/going to restaurants/etc, I also have a hobby, crocheting.
I found an e-mail sent to me concerning crocheting and food.
It showed a book on crocheting food objects.
I was told it was not appropriate for the board and deleted.
I tried to respond to the msg sent to box but it was labeled as delivery failure.

this must be also a new strategy from moderators who have decided to control debate or to explain post on not about food and other posts.

New California law allows dogs to dine out

Unfortunately, it is disgusting and ppl maynot die but will get ill from unsanitary practices.
I am a healthcare professional(Masters in Public Health). I like dogs but they donot belong in restaurants or outside unless they serve doggie food,etc. In that case I would avoid eating there.

yes- I saw those laws but they were for only service dogs.

New California law allows dogs to dine out

I did a search but most of the results were for service dogs and not non service dogs in restaurants.
I also went to Florida Legislature site and couldn't find any bill's for either service/non service dogs in restaurants years 2014/2013-I will go back further.

New California law allows dogs to dine out

I live in Hallandale Beach and I have seen an increase also in dogs sitting on decks/patios/sidewalk cafes AND dogs in carts at local Farmers Market.
The owners of the dogs do not care(or think that it is not ok) if their pets sit on chairs/tables/etc. and create unsanitary conditions.

Crocheting and food

besides enjoying cooking, I also crochet.
I saw this in the morning and thought some of the items might be good for house warming or dinner guest gifts.

What's for Dinner #321 - Seasons Change Edition [through August 26, 2014]

I am making Classic American Tuna Salad from Fish Without a Doubt.
It is easy to prepare and delicious on Martin's Potato roll.
I minced green pepper to the mixture and also added minced homemade pickle spears to it.
I didn't want to have anything heavy for dinner.
It was Primary Day here in Florida-I went to vote and went to the "Y" to exercise

It is an ad imho
Chow needs to keep the ads professional and not an amateurish attempt to sell a book.

It is a good example of what not to accept

Voting Thread: Cookbook of the Month September 2014

ok- I understand-
my error

I am just now learning how boards operate-
since trying to voice my opinion on advertising-

I enjoy the COTM and try to paarticipate as much as possible.

I am a Senior Citizen and can't always buy a book-
I do try to buy on Amazon/Abebooks,etc. when I enjoy the cookbook.

AS an aside my son is a Lawyer and Head Reference Librarian. One of his responsibilities is too order non reference books. He frequently asks me about the cookbooks discussed on the board.

thank you for responding and appreciate your comment
that is basically all I wanted was to state my comments and if anyone disagreed so be it. It was also a way to see how Chowhound operates.

I have no problem with the Banh Mi book or with its author-I think she is a great author.

I don't think imho the tomatoes cookbook/or its author is in the same league and he is self-promoting and advertising
