    Still a couple of days early, but wanted to catch people before the weekend. 3 years ago Saturday we started this site as an alternative to the other place. A place where we could hang out and be free of most of the drama and people with transparent skin who get offended at the drop of the hat. We have had our share of differences here, but sort of like in a family you butt heads, but it’s still family. We’ve lost some members along the way, gained some and some take sabbaticals. I’m sure the critics didn’t think it we would be here 3 years later and thought we would eventually go crawling back. They should know better than that. Thank you to everyone who participates here and for all the support the past 3 years. We may have a small group here, but it’s quality over quantity.

    We are going to have to have a get together very soon, maybe Todo Un Poco again, maybe a weeknight so more of you can make it? We will set a date soon and go from there.

    Thanks again for a fun 3 years and making this site what it is.

    Doc

    3 years breezed by. Love this site as it is very entertaining but most of all love the members. Everyone behaves respectably to each other and we have some pretty lively discussions from time to time. Happy Anniversary!

    The site isn’t bad. I’d like to see some improvements though

    1–why do you charge for ads? why don’t you reward businesses by giving them the break they deserve?

    2–why isn’t this more community oriented? it’s been about 6 months since I’ve checked in across the tracks, and saw yesterday those people know how to have a conversation. For example, there is a very exciting thread about dog park funding. I saw another about HOA rules, and of course businesses “we don’t want” and why McDonald’s is ruining the area.
    THESE are the topics that matter. Not stuff like city politics, civic matters, and non-bashing restaurant comments.

    3–when are we going to get Eagle cellphones?

    When you’re ready to have a discussion, let us know. “Us” is all of us because “we” want these changes.

    I want it at Boulevard Bistro. That should keep out the riff-raff. The two or three non-riff-raff could have a ball at BB. The rest of us could meet down at Bob’s or something…

    That’s a great idea! Either that or the Brickhouse. Since it’s within walking distance I wouldn’t have to worry about finding a designated driver.

    Apparently I have my own table and everything! Although my husband does wonder how I manage to sneak out of the house without him knowing. He doesn’t eat food (like ribs) that get your hands all dirty. I won’t tell him my secret though!

    I don’t care where we go, lets just DO IT, Doc, you’ve been saying we’re getting together for ages now and NOTHING happens, do you want help? Just set a date, not everyone will be able to make it on the date you pick but maybe you could throw out 3 date and have us vote and the date that gets the most votes is the one we go with.
    PS, was LC really banned from this site??? Hope not, I just adore him :):)

    Wow!!! You have your own table?!?!?!?! How impressive!!!! I’m curious though, is there any place in our humble city that is worthy of your presence?

    Hard to believe it is 3 years already. Newmom and I were just at Dickey’s for lunch the other day and we were talking about how it seems like just yesterday that Doc started this place. 🙂

    Well, apparently I do, since you told me you saw me there and all. And as I’ve mentioned many times on this site, with a 5 year old and a 10 year old, if and when we go out to eat, it tends to be family oriented places like Chevy’s, Red Robin, Smashburger, etc. Now, these are NOT what I consider to be “good” restaurants, and not a place I would go without my young kids or with girlfriends. They are family oriented places with quick, consistent food that appeals to kids. Perfect for a 5 and 10 year old. We were just at Red Robin on Thursday night, which was my daughter’s choice to celebrate the end of another excellent trimester of school. Which is why your entire Dickey’s thing was a mystery to me because it sounds like it would be along those lines, and I would have no problem admitting I went there IF I have ever gone. But I have never been there before, so I’m still not sure who you saw, but it wasn’t me.
    As to a place in town that is “worthy” of me-I love Boulevard Bistro. Service, ambiance, and food is all great. I haven’t been to Silva’s in years but I did enjoy their food. I thought the inside of the place could have been nicer, but it’s also been at least 8 years since I’ve been there so maybe they have redecorated. I’m not on the Palermo’s bandwagon like many people. The food was okay, but I did not care for the location or decorations. Only been there two times though, and the second time was not by choice. That, too was years ago, so maybe they have redecorated. When hubby and I go out alone, we tend to eat downtown where there is more of a selection of truly good restaurants that don’t have kiddie food and kiddie menus.
    Any other questions??
