The new Lotus is very nice. And the food is still solid. As is the wine list.

Well, this may seem like an odd place to put this, but....


My phone rang before 6 am this morning. Always a bad sign. One of my best friends called to tell me he is going into rehab today for OxyContin dependency. He fell from a tree stand when the ladder collapsed underneath him while hunting last fall and was seriously injured. Thus the Oxy. Come to find out he's been buying it on the street since March. He realized that he really needed help. So he is voluntarily committing himself for treatment today. I am so glad he will be on the road to recovery.

Yes,   I was just planning a kitty gift certificate for dinner friends for whom taking wine is coal to Newcastle.    Sometimes the way to a man's heart is through his cat.
P, do realize your impact.

I'm glad to be of service :)  I'm sure it doesn't hurt that I must spend over $1,200.00 a year at chewy on the dogs and cat, but I would rather spend my money where it is appreciated. They have a very reasonable flat rate shipping of $5.00 per order, and its free if your order is over $50. They also have live people cheerfully answer the phone, and they usually reply to your email within a reasonable amount of time.I think that they only hire pet lovers.



I'm with you on Chewy. I have both a Petco and a Petsmart that are on my routes when I go grocery shopping. I have sworn them off after bad/nonexistent service. Chewy is great.

I am in NOLA right now. So far, 3 for 3 on great meals. But I spend a lot of time here, and have culled a lot of spots from consideration, either through personal experience or comments of trusted friends who have similar tastes to mine. Turkey & Wolf falls into the later category since I have no real interest in their sandwiches.

Coquette-light supper- an heirloom tomato, crabmeat, soft boiled egg, banana pepper salad served in a lovely Dashi Grilled Gulf shrimp, romesco, pickled horseradish gremolato

Public Service- light lunch- Grilled shrimp and peaches-spring mix, Covey Rise peaches, walnuts, cane syrup vinaigrette. Fried Oysters St. Pierre- on the half shell over bacon marmalade and pepper jelly.

Bywater American Bistro- Tuna toast garlic / tomato / avocado (tuna cured and served slice like prosciutto)Fried Gulf oysters/ oyster gravy/ jasmine rice. Peaches and Cream / cornmeal crumble / coriander (also meringue bits and softly whipped, lightly sweetened whipped cream.

Excellent cocktails at all three spots.
More to come...
Photos will be on my Instagram hopefully later today.

Absolutely thrilled to see LBJ and the Cavs go down. Wonder where LBJ will end up next year...

If you can escape your colleagues, I would highly suggest leaving the Strip and trying some of our other options. Not only are the prices less egregious, but the experience and the food are better than most Strip restaurants.

I really like Sparrow and Wolf. But, if your customers are older (or less adventurous), I'd say Cleo....and, with the SLS being bought, the word is that the new owners will be jettisoning all the current highend spots. So, if you want to go to Cleo, go now. Same re Bazaar Meat.

#1423111 LA Times sold!

Posted by Evelyn on 10 February 2018 - 12:27 AM

Admin note: I have hidden a number of posts in this thread. Feel free to discuss the sale of the newspaper, lack of content or diminishing ad revenues. Stop with the thinly veiled political commentary.


It would really help the Admins if everyone would report posts you consider political, rather than responding to them on the thread. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.
