    “masquerading in men’s clothing”…huh???

    It’s that thing… where one midget stands on top of another midget… and they wear a trench coat… and trick the door man into letting them inside New York’s hottest nightclub.

    Even if that isn’t the case, I’m going to choose to believe it :D

    The nearest Rax is in Lancaster.

    Yeah, there used to be a Rax about 5 years ago around the Cleveland Ave/161 area (it’s now a Chipotle) and it was pretty depressing. They used styrofoam plates and cups with generic trays. The roast beef was a big let down. It was a shell of what Rax used to be :(

    I imagine the Lancaster one is along the same lines. I’ll have to check it out if I’m in the area.

    There is also a Rax just south of Circleville that is using the same type of products you mention OneBag. Even the cheese sauce was more pathetic that normal, if you can believe that.

    We reviewed it (kinda) in 2009. I wonder if it’s changed. ;)

    that building wasn’t all that old.

    I thought it was a nice looking place, but I was never inside it.

    That area was a burial ground, according to the history books and some academic papers. There was a gravel terrace, and the highway department mined the gravel for road building. They found graves with native american bones tied in bundles, and they chucked them.

    Isn’t pretty much all of Dublin Native American burial grounds? There was a building (maybe two) in that location before that one. The golf place was called Bash golf when I was growing up.
