    Here’s another take on that style of restaurant:


    It’s a cool concept.

    We are winterizing our vehicle so we can serve and not freeze or succumb to propane gas poisioning. Repairs and modifications are almost complete. Besides, the cold weather modifications we’re installing, starting next Tuesady Dec. 14th we’ll be back inside Dick’s Den during the weekly Bluegrass Jam series practicing new recipes and menu oferings. We may be temporarily down due to the weather elements but we are not out! Come get your Fusion-on and enjoy some great music from some of Ohio’s best musicians.

    I got an e-mail a couple weeks back from someone at Kraft Foods/Oscar Mayer asking did I think a corporate food truck would work. I told them it would probably work well..in another city. Let’s hope the game stays geared towards us small business entrepeneur’s and the corporate dynasties stay out.

    Or we could look at it as a form of flattery and that we must have really hit on something if the big boys want to play on our court.

    1. When television was much simpler..we only had 4 channels: 4,6,10 and 34.
    2. All the radio station’s were AM.
    3. Les Brown running for City Council and call his Mother for her endorsement and her urge for Columbus to “Vote for my son, he’s a good man!”–everyday.
    4. Jerry Hammond. KC Jones Baby. Buck Reinhart. Lushetka. Otto Beatty. Fritz The Nite Owl. Flippo the Clown.
    5. Neighborhood’s where everybody knew each other.
    6. Northland Mall was an outside Mall (by the way it was the 1st covered Mall in the US). The C&S Lounge. Mount Vernon Ave. When the Fair cost $2.00 and ALL the rides were free! The deli/restaurant in Downtown Lazarus. You had to walk outside and up temporary steps to get on your plane at Port Columbus.
    7. Northern Lights Shopping Center was a destination and the home of Big City Gameroom. Stelzer Rd. was 2 lanes.
    8. Bussing. All Black (damn near) Catholic grade schools and parishes.
    9. You couldn’t find a parking space for 2 blocks on the weekend near Linden Park.
    10. My 1st foray into the Hospitality Industry: Steak & Ale @ Morse and Maize..and Morse Rd. only had 2 lanes in each direction!

    Damn, I’m getting old!!!

    in reply to: “Immigrantification” (n.) – Gentrification by Immigrants #403381

    I believe that word about sums it up. That corridor has become one of the new “immigrant-ized” area’s of Columbus. It’s just unfortunate that the big box retailers and Northland had to shut down to give the new breed of entrepeneur’s a chance. Hell, not too long back Columbus was so segregated that there were only certain neighborhoods where certain races & nationalities could live–let alone operate a business. Moving forward and inch and still moving backward a foot..progress at it’s finest!

    I am tuning into this one. I haven’t been much into reality tv since the 1st season of Rocco Dispirito’s “The Restaurant” years ago. This is right up my alley!! In fact, we got nominated for Season 2 and you can vote for us at their website.

    Over the last month I’ve talked to lots of folks working in the Hospitality industry and everbody’s refrigeration and ac systems (including our’s on an aluminum platform) are getting worked overtime!
    Hell, last weekend we witnessed rolling blackout’s of the street lamps up and down High St. near Dick’s Den because everybody and their momma are working that ac overtime!!

    Wimps!! If you go in an establishment and they have food worth being there for and it’s hot= 1. Order it to go! 2. Order more cold beverages!!

    Ray-Ray’s is good BBQ!!! This is one of our favorite’s and like someone posted, they are good people and were very helpful and forthcomming with tips while I was refurbing Bessie Mae. You’re missing out on something good if you don’t patronize them.
