Re: Top Madison restaurants

Food Fight generates too much hate for as popular as it is. Tory Miller is going to be seen as "too fancy" for most of Yelp's core demographic. And Novanta is pizza, though how it got all the way up to #3 is beyond me. (I can see Ian's sliding down the list as people give it poorer ratings...

Re: CBS

It's actually a KFC kind of thing; it's not called Canadian Breakfast Stout in the same way Kentucky Breakfast Stout isn't called that either. They're KBS and CBS. Founders has trademarks on both names as initialisms, not as spelled-out names.

Re: Limburger Cheese Sandwich?

Me, one day a year. My fixins depot of choice is Jenifer Street Market. Pumpernickel, white onion, garlic summer sausage, and a block of limburger. Stay off my turf on the second Saturday in August , but the other 364 days of the year are all yours. EDIT: Huh, they do use red onion. Had it in my hea...

Re: That BBQ Joint - Willy Street

Wednesday morning, the Facebook page was updated to list the address simply as Madison, WI, which makes it seem like yes, the brick-and-mortar location is indeed done. Web site is still up and makes it look like they're still open. Websites are almost always the last to be changed. But the BBQ busi...

Re: That BBQ Joint - Willy Street

Went by Double S Wednesday. A note on the door said they were closed and a For Lease sign was in the window. Hope the neighbors are happy, as I am not. From the restaurant's Facebook page, 6/27/17: Double S BBQ is hittin' the road this summer! We have made a business decision to close the restauran...

Re: Colin Kaepernick

The idea that Brett Hundley would be better than Colin Kaepernick is kind of laughable. Do you think a young player with as poor a sense of pocket awareness as Hundley has would be vertical for the rest of the season, with as beat up as GB's offensive line already is? Kaepernick's got legs, and he k...

Re: Low Sodium Recommendations

fennel, I really don't think your bread elitism is going to win any converts, so can we agree to stipulate that you have strong opinions about the bread you allow to pass your lips? I don't think it needs to be said another 20 times in 20 more dismissive and superior ways.

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

I LOVE beer. Okay, just seemed like you had an allowance for poetry as far as wine was concerned, but beer was all commodity transactions. I don't typically use "terroir" in discussing the house characteristics of various breweries anyway, but the concept it tries to express -- as much as...

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

"environmental conditions adding appreciable characteristics" The concept of terroir is so much deeper and lovelier than that dull thud. It's the soul of a place brought to life in a grape. Topgraphy, soil, sun, weather, water, history. Seems perfectly plausible that the New Glarus water ...

Re: Beer Advocate, WI, & New Glarus

Terroir isn't limited to wine. Right. Dilute the concept till it's Miller Lite pale, and you can apply it to beer. Co-opting is fun! Co-opting? I mean, it's French, so I guess I could translate it to something English to make it feel less like a wine word, but is beer not an agricultural product to...
