Please, please check out the armeniac's comments on that thread with all the comments below. I am still LOLing inside (I know that doesn't make any sense)
It is kinda harsh to come in with a hangover and read this. However, it's nice to get people talking and it really all comes down to my subjective opinion, which is obviously all reviews are. Yes, you can bring more or less knowledge to the table (I bring as much as I can and I care and I pay attention and I read) and a more or less sensitive palate, that's about it. I'm no supertaster, which is probably why I'm drawn to cuisines with strong and spicy flavors. I stand by my review. The seafood soup that Liv had was like 18 dollars and she said it tasted freezer burned and I agreed. I HATE writing negative reviews. Who would enjoy it? Maybe somebody, but I know BAR doesn't, either.
My hangover resulted from an evening that started at Bows. I had a glass of the gamay with a shared roast beef sandwich and the squash "meatball" sandwich. Then I had a glass of the sparkling vouvray. They were both delicious, as were the sandwiches and the side salad. Then, we went to Luna's because AR was hosting the comedy night. Some of it was rough. It was my first time (well, since Francois Fly) seeing Keith Lowell Jensen perform and he was funny. Then, a nightcap at Simon's was really the culprit. If you ever hear me saying "Maker's on the rocks" yell "NOOOOOOOOO!!!" and slap it out of my hand. That's a sure sign that things have gone too far. No, j.k., it was fun and it's not much of a hangover.
