Reminder: riders also have rules to follow....... I drive for my job and see countless bicycle riders, who should know better, not following the rules of the road.

I love this place! The staff is always friendly and helpful with suggestions. So many flavors to choose from, it's hard to make up your mind.

Wasn't impressed. The beans tasted like they were from a can, ribs were dry(almost jerky), and the staff were not friendly at all. It felt like they were all pissed off at something. The brisket was good, liked the sauces, but I make better ribs than this place.

My experiance here has been hit or miss. It is usually really good, food and service wise. There have been nights though, when it younger crew is working, that the food is terrible and the service is non existant. One of the "bad nights" night my wife and I waited almost a 20min before I finally flagged down someone to get us our drinks! Never got a check either....

A Bar Cry

But Trevor, how many local bar owners do you really think read V1? That why it is the place of the patron to talk to the bar staff about ideas, not complain about it in a magazine the owners probably don't read.....

Ok, Do all of you with these "oh so great" ideas ever pass them on to the owners of the places you enjoy "having a few" at? Remember, they aren't mind readers as to what you want/need to be entertained. Alot of the places in the are ALREADY HAVE the things you mention, or do you really need all of that junk to have a good time? Ifthat is the case,I'm sorry to say Trevor, but you sound a little high maintainance with your wants/needs in a bar. You might have better luck opening your own place, and see how many other people want the same stuff.

My wife and I loved this place! Everything I have had here has been fresh, well spiced, and quick to the table. Best tamales I have had in a long time! I hate to say it, but they are giving El Patio a run for their money in my book. Cancun might as well just shut their doors...

Pizza is good, nothing to exciting about it, but still good with a nice selection on the buffet. The fried/bbq chicken was really good, almost better than the pizza. I am a fan of the peach dessert pizza, it was something different. The only thing I can't stand is the "god-rock" music that is piped in.........I understand they are trying to be a christian business, but really....do all christians listen to this crap constantly?

What’s your favorite holiday-ish movie?

Ronin

I'll second the animated Grinch. Especially when you're playing the "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" drinking game. Rules are simple, every time someone say's "who" you drink! That first song is a killer!!!!

Eau Claire police considering surveillance…

Ronin

Sorry, I think you are all paraniod. Oh, Pookums, I wasn't putting words in "your fingers", I was looking for where you draw the line on public and private, or acceptable and unacceptable. They were questions, henseforth the question marks at the end of them.....

Eau Claire police considering surveillance…

Ronin

So Pookums, how is it any more of a "violation" of our rights, if the same cops that would be(and already are) patroling the street are watching the monitors? Are you saying that store security cameras are a violation of rights? How about traffic cameras to catch people running red lights? You are in public, and anyone can see you, how can you call it an invasion of privacy???
To me, I think it will help with the vandalism and property damage, since they will have a face to put with the crime. It might even keep the court fees down, since the person will know they are on camera, and have no chance to fight it.

Dude, where’s your car?

Ronin

Well, since the city is already cash strapped, YES, it's a good thing to save the overtime.
I'm not understanding your thoughts on this Ken, are you saying that it's the city's fault that these people ignored the signs that said NO PARKING? Absurd is the manner in how things get shoved away from those who are at fault, and put on the city, which you seem to have many problems with.
While we're at it, could someone also teach the UW students what that red/orange hand means on the traffic lights at the crosswalks? They don't seem to understand those either....

Reviewed: Asia Palace

After reading such conflicting reports from this site, I had to try it for myself. I'd say the food was on par with all the local "Asian buffet" type places in the area. I didn't try the sushi(not because of the reviews, but I don't trust buffet sushi)so I can't say anything on that. Server checked in pretty regular for drink refills, and was pleasant. Overall, pretty average place, I'd go back.

Ghost Story From Chippewa: October 15th,…

Wow Gus, guess those of us who believe must all be a bunch of backwards simpletons, who don't think before we say "it's a ghost"?
So tell me, what is the rational answer for a light being on when the power cord is cut........

Guess Whose Cable Company Is Bankrupt!

Ronin

I'm trying to figure out how they are bankrupt, even thought we keep paying more for the same channels. Do we really need 5+ shopping stations? You'd think we could get rid of some of those and give us the NFL network or something that is actual programing......

Also Matt, if one of you had fallen in the river, the temp of that water would have caused some pretty tragic results, even if you had ben able to get them out. Put a soaked person on a big chunk of ice, that's smart right there!
Now also take into thought, if one of you had drowned or even been injured, and it was pointed out that a campus cop saw you idiots, your folks would be raising holy hell with the city, the university, and the survivors.
Be thankfull you just got fines and lived, pay up and be done with it!
