    Adapting a story & adapting a play are not analogous.

    For the record, it’s not about producing a “clone,” it’s about honoring a licensing agreement, which is standard for contemporary theater productions. I can’t believe Shadowbox actually did that. The small-town community theater I was involved in as a kid would agonize over whether to change a single word, despite knowing that the publisher would almost cetainly not find out.

    1. A year later and still no taco trucks in Delaware. It’s National Taco Day, for pete’s sake!
    2. FYI: Dan’s Deli is not a deli. He sells hamburgers and hot dogs and something he calls a gyro but it has chicken and ranch dressing and mozzarella cheese on it so I’m not really sure what it is. Tastes OK, huge, but in no way a gyro.

    I second (or third?) this recommendation. Wide selection of really cool fabrics, very nice people working there with great suggestions. It’s a little pricey, but if you want interesting fabric, it’s definitely the place to go.

    Ok, I swear it’s not me, it’s my phone being an asshole & double-posting. Lesson learned. Sorry again.

    I don’t know what dark recess of my brain his name popped out of – had to google it to make sure I wasn’t crazy.
    Never canoed with the Hoot-ers, but I imagine it was pretty terrific.

    Whatever happened to ‘The Long North?’ Was that just an Irv Oslin thing? And am I showing my age by remembering these things?

    Cafe Bourbon Street Cafe has 1$ tacos on Monday nights and they are DELICIOUS. And smell nothing like the rest of Bourbon St. :)

    Interesting, bc I was just at that Kroger today (I don’t usually shop there) to pick up a few things and I was *appalled* at the produce section. There were things there that, if I found them in my refrigerator, I would throw away. Poblano peppers with brown mushy spots and wrinkled skins. Grape tomatoes that were *moldy* in the package – not just a few, but virtually every package I looked at. Plums that should’ve been removed from sale last week.
    I left without buying anything and went to Giant Eagle instead. (I’m not endorsing GE, necessarily, just saying the produce at the GE on High & Olentangy is better than the produce at that particular Kroger.)
    I didn’t look specifically at the organic stuff, but I can’t imagine it’s treated any better than the non-organic stuff.
    On the subject of different options, Weiland’s produce section is small but well-tended, and they have a lot of organic and/or local stuff.

    I have never once in my life ever been too tired to open a bottle of wine.

    Fuck ’em. I know Columbus is great; I eat like a queen; I don’t give a shit what a tv guy and some dude from CLEVELAND (srsly, *Ruhlman* is condescending about *us*?) say about us.
    Keep acting like we suck, it keeps the rabble out.

    Definitely not a bug; they do the 80% off deal several times a year.

    Also, it states on each restaurant’s listing, BEFORE you buy, what the minimum purchase is and any restrictions. It’s right underneath the button you use to add each certificate/coupon to the check-out cart.

    I took my 4-year-old nephew to Lavash today and he was perfectly happy. But then he’s a pretty adventurous eater.
    Maybe Wildflower? My sister’s kids are always happy there.
    I think eating healthy is an option almost anywhere (Bob Evans included – they have some surprisingly good salads that don’t have to be high-fat), unless you’re at bw3 or McDonald’s or the like.
