spooplangiesfilangies asked: Hey man don't feel bad about the Hammerheads piece... my partner and I went once and had a really bad experience there and we get judged all the time for not liking it/wanting to go back.
Aw thank you friend! It always sucks to criticize someplace that everyone else seems to love.
Anonymous asked: Sorry you're catching so much flack for that "waitress" bit. Personally I think "waiter/waitress" is much less offensive than "server."
Well, that’s a different take. I didn’t even think that server might be offensive! The more you know.
Anonymous asked: No one says waitress anymore, it's offensive. Does anyone call you lady blogger? Nope.
No but occasionally they do call me Madame Editor…and I sorta love that sooo…
Anonymous asked: hey, 1993 called. they want the word waitress back.
Right you are! I have corrected it. When I was waitressing (waitering?) I always referred to myself as a waitress so it guess I wasn’t aware there was something negative attached to gendered words in this case.
Frankly I do not personally ascribe to the notion that gendered words automatically degrade a person. But hey, I’ve been wrong before.And I don’t like to step on toes when there’s no reason to do so!
Anonymous asked: Best collection of spots for "out-of-towner" bachelor party? Need a mix of local beer, bourbon tasting, large group dinner, afternoon drinking, late night dive bar, brunch/hangover spot(s). Thanks!
Wooo boy congrats!
Local Beer: can’t beat BBC, but I’ve heard good things about Against the Grain’s local beers.
Bourbon Tasting: depending on how serious the group is, you could try Down One Bourbon Bar (so many good bourbons!!!) or tour the Evan Williams Experience
Large Group Dinner: I’m obsessed with Monkey Wrench right now, which would probably also be a good place to start getting your drank on. Mussel & Burger Bar would probably also be a hit with the bachelors. As would Feast BBQ.
Afternoon Drinking: Early evening drinking is probably best at Nach Bar or Holy Grale. GREAT beer selection, and in the case of Holy Grale, bar snacks. If you want to go swankier, 21C and St. Charles Exchange both have GREAT bars.
Late Night Dive: Nach, The Back Door, Cahoots or Mag Bar if you’re really brave and adventurous. Meta if you’re feeling classy.
Hangover Cure: Coffee from Quills or Sunergos, donuts from Nord’s Baker (bacon maple) and Ramsi’s brunch buffet.
Hopefully this helps! Thanks for the question, let me know if you need further recommendations.
