    The problem with Cville’s dining “scene” is still the limits on alcohol, not the food trucks.

    How do you figure? There are three sites which were granted liquor permits quite a while back that are sitting empty. Northstar opened up recently on what was a long vacant lot that sat for years with a beer (and I think wine) license.
    Honestly, I think that most of Clintonville people just aren’t go-out-to-eat people.
    And +1 on Walker’s take.

    Exactly my point, you’re naming 3 specific sites in Clintonville. I think that would quailify as a limit on alcohol. My thing is that Cville would benefit from having a few blocks that each had 2-3 restaurants. To achieve that I think they would all need to serve liquor. I get your point on Northstar, but honestly NS is a pretty specialized restaurant and it’s not like there’s a bar in there. I doubt much of their business relys on alcohol sales.

    As a resident of CV, I don’t mind the food trucks b/c it’s mostly good food. I hit Ray-Ray’s probably once a month. Plus, for as many people as there are in Cville there is a shortage of resaurants.
    However, I can understand what he’s saying. The existing restaurants have made an investment in the community they serve. Resautrants are a part of a community while the food trucks come in a few days a week then go somewhere else. Also, any of them could pull out of Cville tomorrow and never come back. The CAC doesn’t have that concern about B&M restaurants.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against the trucks, if you have a better mousetrap…But I can understand the CAC concern.

    I think I’ve actually narrowed it down to a cake baking/decorating class. DVR is full of that crap.

    I did one at the whole foods on sawmill. It was fun and cheap.

    Good idea except it looks mostly vegan…

    I am considering getting my girlfriend some cooking classes for Christmas.
    I think they have classes at North Market and I believe there are some over at Easton.
    Anyone have any experience with a cooking class, preferably around the Grandview area? Thanks!

    Did she ask for them? Or is this a hint that she can’t cook?

    No, she didn’t ask. She’s a good cook, loves following recipes and such. I just think she would like it.

    Are you sure it’s a speed limiter and not a rev limiter?
    Some cars will not let the engine rev over a certain RPM after enough things are detected “wrong” and will go into “Limp” mode to allow the car to limp to a service center.

    I doubt this. While most cars do have rev limiters, I wouldn’t think that’s the problem here. Even if you lowered the rev limit via ECU or some other method you would want it at least around 4000 simply for going gear to gear and safe acceleration. At 55 most cars are doing less than 3000 RPM, probably closer to 2500, you would never want a rev limiter that low. You wouldn’t want the car to be shifting each gear at 2500-3000 RPM.

    The hard part of removing a speed limiter will be finding the info on removing it. I would guess the rental company was supposed to have removed it before the sale, but didn’t. They now don’t want to tell anyone how to remove the limiter, because it would expose the secret to anyone who wants to do it to a current rental.

    Forgetting to remove it is probably correct. However, cars aren’t all that complex, especially more affordable cars. If there’s a speed governor I would guess it can be removed by a mechanic. I doubt there’s much of a secret to it. It could even have a “seal” on it so that if it can’t be removed without detection.
    I don’t know any of this, just speculating, but I wouldn’t think it could be that hard for a good mechanic to remove it. Most of those guys have seen it all.

    Also, how much “below book value” is it? Just because it’s below book value doesn’t make it a good deal. How much less is it than the same vehicle without the governor?

    What is the year, make, model? Have YOU talked to a mechanic? Maybe the owners called one place and that’s it.
    I would call Budget or Avis, surely they don’t leave the 55mph speed limiter on all their cars when they sell them, so they have to know how to remove them or at lease point you in the right direction. I’ve never even heard of using a speed governor on anything besides large commercial vehicles like semis and busses.

    another -1 for Baer.
    They take extremely long to finish work, are rude in general, and are not upfront with estimated times of completion. I will say that although I love the stock at Paradise Garage, I usually do not receive great service. When people are in customer service industries, I find it irrating to have to approach them in-store for help or guidance when they are chatting on the phone or with friends.
    I say Third Hand, B1, or Bike Source on Bethal are your best bets.

    Same experience here with Baer. The bike shop across from Chipotle (roughly) in Clintonville didn’t seem to do me much good either. Took my bike in for a tuneup and basically noticed 0 difference.
    I basically chose this post to quote and reply to to give a shout out on the WU/Hello Kitty colab avatar. Classic.

    That’s what I was thinking. I never went to Onyx, but the rest of that place always had some shady people running around, especially on the clubbin nights.
