"Business Plan: We're going to have Bud Light binge consumption on *FOUR* levels instead of the current 3 at Tootsie's."

Re: “Tootsie's Owner Proposes Steakhouse, Music Venue on Lower Broadway

Calling the people responsible for Tootsie's, Rippy's and Honky-Tonk Central ""restauranteurs" is a bad joke. I agree with the above - these guys are doing more than anyone to ruin Broadway. Enough already, and enough already with the Scene running glorified press releases as they have been increasingly lately.

Re: “Tootsie's Owner Proposes Steakhouse, Music Venue on Lower Broadway

For the love of god, please stop with sticking garage doors in every building downtown. This guy is a scourge to the ever declining last bits of charm left on Lower Broad.

On a related note, if anyone actually believes Smith's nonsense that his "diner" is going to be anything other than another bad honky tonk knockoff, then I have condos to sell you in one of Tony G's 105 story high rises......

Re: “Don't Be Bitter: It's Negroni Week!

Arrgh, Eastie. You're totally correct. Gin fell out of my text during an edit. My bad. You gotta have fun or it's not a Negroni. Or really, not anything...

Re: “Don't Be Bitter: It's Negroni Week!

Agreed, that's more an Americano than a Negroni...

Re: “Don't Be Bitter: It's Negroni Week!

Horrors! You cannot make a Campari without the gin!

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

The second floor patio at the new Family Wash location isn't for restaurant patrons. There are offices on the second floor of the building and, as I understand it, the patio is only accessible from the upstairs, not the restaurant.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

I think Shepherd's Pie would make an excellent birthday cake substitute.

Re: “First Bite: Embers Ski Lodge

The decor in here is like a tricked out Applebee's. Brown liquor selection is deep though.

Re: “Two Appealing Spanish Wines Offer Alternatives to Rosé

Spanish white wines are wonderful. Just make sure that the year on the label is no older than 2013. Anything older is unlikely to be good as these wines are meant to be drunk young.

Re: “A Farewell to Sub Stop: The Little Pink Building Closes for Good on Friday

I most likely possess the last Sub Stop sub in existence.

Showed up late yesterday, and they had less than 20 hoagie rolls left (not from their usual bakery; they'd already run out of those). While I was deciding they ran out of the substitute bread too. (They *did* have some bunny bread left as some solace for the line of 20 people they had at about 5pm.)

*BUT*, I had a Belmont Bi-Rite french loaf in the car! Hadn't thought about that while purchasing it, but had the presence of mind to grab it just in case while leaving the house. They split that in half and made one Super and one Roast Beef & Smoked Cheddar. Super got eaten; do regret that I forgot to ask for jalapenos & banana peppers; still awesome. RoastBeef is in the fridge. (Also have 3 saved soups, and most of a pound of chicken salad from that last day.)

Dunno how long I can save that final sammy. It's "all the way", lettuce - tomato - onion - pickle - oil - vinegar - oregano, so I'm thinking 2 days' delay is the max . . . ?

SO SORRY they've gone!

...

p.s. ghostatnumber1, looks like Onsite Bites have the same hoagie bags and **looks like** the same breads!!! May be worth a nostalgia trip in the future, though it's ~5-6 miles away on the mappie thingie....

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

For me, there's no substitute for birthday cake, though it's rare that I have one just for me now that I'm in my thirties. My sister surprised me with a carrot cake from Homestyle Bakery for my birthday last week. The best. I sliced what remained into manageable portions and froze it, like the adult I am.

I went all out for my birthday dinner/our first date night since the baby. I finally made it to Sinema, and we had an incredible meal. The deconstructed key lime pie finished things off beautifully. I loved how the descriptions on the menu didn't go into too much detail so as to spoil the surprise. The mushroom crepe, in particular, was dazzling beyond expectation.

Re: “Nashville Farmers' Market faces momentous change as community markets grow and thrive

"Kennard explains, “We recognize what “local” means to a town like Nashville. Most of the farmland that can supply our needs is not in the county. We consider our local food shed to cover a 250 mile radius around us.” -

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

The Alley on Main in Murfreesboro has something called Birthday Cake on their menu. It's a simple dense chocolate sheet cake with white icing. Fantastic stuff. Very simple and delicious.

She also makes a mean carrot cake and has warm chocolate chip cookies if you ask.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

There have been many (adult) birthdays where I had some other dessert, but I think of those occasions as being birthday cake deficient, rather than having a birthday cake substitute. There is no such thing as a birthday cake substitute.

Re: “A Farewell to Sub Stop: The Little Pink Building Closes for Good on Friday

You should all try On Site Bites. It is owned by 2 guys that worked at Sub Stop since the 90's. Small place in an office building in Century City business park. Great subs, wraps, and soup! They cater too!

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Birthday Cake Alternative?

@TeeLee, @CAA — yes, if it's the new Family Wash you're citing, it's pretty promising. Chef is John Stephenson, formerly of Fido.
