  1. I'm so disappointed that the ACC bailed out ND. Would have been great to watch them flap in the wind after so many years of insisting they are too special to be part of a conference. Not that any of it matters if the season isn't completed.

    Foie gras ban

    you don't say. Isn't animals getting chewed to death while still alive a fairly regular occurrence in the wild?
  3. 🤣 Tom Douglas pizza sucks, even by Seattle standards, so...
  4. Is everyone in NYC excited about going to spin-offs of Seattle restaurants at the new Nordstrom flagship store in Midtown?!
  5. The format would be even better if one could actually get in. When did you go? I got there around 6:30 on a Wednesday, put my name on the waiting list and ended up being seated around 8:15. Had a drink and a plate at Oxalis, a drink at a place next to Oxalis, and wandered around a bit to kill the time. Just had an app and a drink to tide me over until a late dinner that night. Chose the carrot rillettes, which was tasty enough, but eluded me in what sense is was "rillette," since it seemed like diced carrots. The cocktail just wasn't very interesting, especially given the ing
  6. Dinner with said friend never materialized for a variety of reasons, and my dining choices for the week ended up being mainly driven by what was close by, interesting and available at meal times (or family members choosing). So the run down was, including some partial meals: Margon Tomino Toloache Oxalis (Brooklyn) Maison Yaki (Brooklyn) - fantastic format for solo dining Aria The Modern Red Rooster Barney Greengrass A few regrets in there, but overall enjoyable eating.
  7. These are the kinds of people that necessitated the concept of a Veblen good…
  8. $23 for two lengua tacos at Empellon Taqueria? Yeah, I'd say my budget would be blown long before the typical number of tacos I eat. While acknowledging that I'm from a backwater city, that's stupid.
  9. I guess it depends on how much you plan to drink... that can be half the $$ sometimes, I've found. If you're light drinkers: Atoboy - the three dishes for $46(?) is a good deal for the quality. Good beer selection, too, if you're into that. Llamita could be fun. No idea if you've any Peruvian places in Seattle. Estela or Crown Shy might be doable. You could probably do one of the Raij/Montero places - Txikito, Quinto Pino - tapas can start adding up depending how much you order, but a light meal is certainly doable. Are you sharers? Empellon, maybe - start with the queso fundido o
  10. Coming to town later this month for a conference, and looking for recommendations for a place for dinner with a friend. Some loose parameters: Manhattan, mid-range price (<$100 pp all in), ideally something that is not readily available in Seattle, reasonably conversation-friendly noise level. Appreciate any guidance you have, thanks!
  11. Ale Kaho, a little payback by sleaze bag Tosh Lupoi against his former employer. https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-husky-football/former-5-star-ale-kaho-days-after-being-granted-his-release-from-uw-huskies-to-play-for-alabama/
  12. Does it include the coaching on how to feign a family crisis so you can get released from your LOI to go play for the Tide instead?

    Looks like this is going to get even uglier than I thought And I thought it would get pretty ugly. Hopefully one outcome is to create a path to professional sports that doesn't require spending time pretending to be a student.
  14. Hilarious. Does Sark's promotion to OC come with the stipulation that he can no longer pick his nose and eat it on national TV?
  15. Yes, we can definitely unite around that! Mainly, I need to focus on cooking NYE dinner and can't be composing responses every 10 minutes...
  16. I think Evelyn has been buying you cocktails when she visits NYC... We're going to have to agree to disagree.
  17. IF we're going to play the IF game, what IF UW wasn't starting mostly underclassmen on the OL, what IF they hadn't fumbled when already in FG range... Their D did the job they needed to do given the opponent. If Alabama'state offense was better, maybe it wouldn't have, but who knows?
  18. Lopsided? I know I'm a homer, and the UW offense obviously had no answers, but those 17 pointso were 3 plays: fumble, pick and the long TD run. UW D was hardly getting rolled. This could have easily been a 10-7 final
  19. A little tip from his time in Seattle, best not to invite Sark to parties where there's an open bar
  20. Is Saban running a rehab program for Southern Cal wash outs?
  21. Is being the Florida Atlantic head coach really a step up from being OC at Alabama?? Pay is probably worse.
  22. Well, I had to check in with you somehow after the matchup was announced. I hope the Huskies make a good showing. They can definitely match up at some positions, but the OL fending off Bama's front 7 could be a big problem.
  23. I watched in person . We have a lot to work on between now and the next trip to Atlanta. So how (over-)confident are you are you feeling about the semifinal game, Evelyn? WOOF!
