The Etiquette of Bringing Your Own Meal on a Plane

I never eat on flights, just my own water or a diet coke. Couldn't care any less about the peanuts, crackers, snax things or the meals. Would much rather eat when we land at even the worst fast food place which is better than any airline food. Of course I only fly domestic or up to Canada, so no 20 hour flights for me. if the airlines want to ban any and all potential allergens, in the cabin and on all flights, fine by me. And perhaps that is what they should do, so we don't have this discussion. It is just if families are freaking out about a plane flight, just maybe we don't fly. Food allergies tend to be much more common in children than adults, so we are not talking business flights.

San Diego restaurants OPENINGS (2015 edition)

Does "house made" imply that the house itself made the item, not the people who are working in the house. I was not an English major and I do not listen to that PBS radio show on grammar, so I am only guessing.

The Etiquette of Bringing Your Own Meal on a Plane

If it is that severe of an allergy, they also should probably never attend a sporting event. Lots of peanuts are consumed at them. Also they probably should not go to a supermarket because lot of markets sell peanuts sometimes in open bins, other times in bags that have been known to break. And if they live in the State of Georgia or the Carolinas, move. Really somebody brushing past you that has a nut residue on them can happen anywhere in public. If I had that severe of an allergy, I would be more worried about everyday life.

The Etiquette of Bringing Your Own Meal on a Plane

I sure hope that if somebody has that significant of an allergy, they are carrying a good anti-histamine and an Epi-pen with them at all times. I would not be so worried about somebody eating a bag of peanuts 10 rows away from me, but sitting in a seat where somebody consumed peanuts in my seat the flight before me. You have seen how well the airlines clean the cabin between flights, haven't you?

Dickey's BBQ?

Ranchwood BBQ and Wood Ranch? Boy there is going to be some confusion between those two places. I wonder if that was intentional or not. Kinda like the burger place in the old Eddie Murphy movie "Coming to America"

Mexicali Style Chinese in Pomona

Don't know if they still have the items on the menu, but Don Cuco's out in Toluca Lake used to have a few Chinese items on their menu. I had tried them, and they were really pretty good. I did ask, and they told me it was Mexicali style. Of course this was many years ago and don't know if they still have them on the menu. I never saw anyone else order the dishes.

Hey, we already have enough crummy sports bars in Encinitas, don't give us one that does not belong to us. Mike's is in Escondido, over by Auto Park.

The Fish Market

You know I was wondering that as well. I suppose it is the kind of policy that they have, if it covers lost income. But the way Bell wrote it, she implied, at least to me, that the workers were being covered out of the Fish Market's pocket.

The Fish Market

I know that The Fish Market does not get a whole lotta love on this board but I have to give a big shout out to Bob Wilson, one of the owners of the chain. In Diane Bell's column on Saturday, Bob said that the Fish Market would continue to pay their employees while the restaurant is under repair. I don't think many other restaurants would do the same. I know of Mr. Wilson's philanthropic generosity in other areas, and my hat is off to him.

are there any good dive bars left in greater downtown LA?

Yep sorry, that was it. Richard the bartender, was the best. I would hesitate to even call that restaurant mediocre.

Old School Italian in the Valley

I forgot about the waiters. Some of them were really pretty good. Loved the clam and garlic pizza

Yeah and they nuked the bowling alley. I rolled many a game there. Now that bowling is making a comeback (sorta), don't the powers that be with ASUCLA wish they still had them.

Plus at Vitello's you get the whole Robert Blake thing.

Too bad Yee Ming Lao is long gone, that was definitely a dive.

Favorite food items at Disneyland (ex. Club 33)?

There is an ice cream shop in HB right off of Edinger. It is kinda behind Golden West College in the mall with the Fuji Burger. They have it.

America’s Most Obese States Tend to Have One Thing in Common

Huh? Aren't humans biologically omnivores?

Dickey's BBQ?

There was one up in La Costa. I think Bill Walton's son was an investor. Not great, not surprised that they left town. Didn't know about the one in Torrey Hills, I thought the La Costa one was the only one down here. Again, no big loss.

Dickey's BBQ?

I agree, I really like Brett's. The problem is that I don't have much to compare to, at least up in No. County. I think Brett's is better than Mike's or Phil's. However with them, the bar is not set too high.

Is organic still called Chem 21? I remember it very well and my class was at 8 am in Young Hall and dare I say in 1974.

Helping picking a GREEK Restaurant on West side?

Where have you gone Papadakis Tavrena?

Diners. Not the fancy ones, not the "dives" either. Grits and eggs.

Umm BC there were some issues the Leucadian and the ABC a couple of years back. Let's just say I am not surprised he could afford that boat.

Not a ton of bike posers up at Don's. They tend to hang right on 101. Don's is couple blocks off of Coast Highway. Same with my favorite breakfast place at Especial Norte, for some reason those guys don't go in there. Even though it is right on the 101.

Ye Olde King's Head

That's right. I remember when King's Head expanded into those rooms. I always thought there was a little left over Austrian in that one room. But I didn't realize that it was a fight over the space. I just thought Knoll's Black Forest wanted to go upscale and move up to Wilshire.

Does this mean that Phil's is no longer the most derided BBQ place in San Diego?

Yes it was that crispy flakey crust on the fish that was so good. I may have to still go back, the shepherd's was really tasty as well. It is a nostalgia thing, we had been going there when it was the early location for Knoll's Black Forest

Dang, I have not been for about 15+ years, but I was thinking about it recently. My dear departed dad loved that place and I was thinking about dragging my mom down there for one of our roadie lunch trips. I guess not now, maybe next trip will be down to Langer's instead.
