2nd of all I know the conversation I had with Chris "to quote Bruce from a prior thread "I was dere"

It's your interpretation of Chris' interpretation of a conversation he had with Michael.  Hardly first-hand evidence.

 
What??????????!!!!!!
 
ok, come on now, that's getting ridiculous, and you know it. I'll say the same thing about you and your "conversation" you had with Michael about "Juice Caboose"  - it's your interpretation of a
conversation that you had.
 
Bruce, you're funny!

    Totally different.  Be logical, man.  It's the difference between first hand and second hand.
     
    Also, there's no need to put the word conversation in quotes.  Michael, Stephen, and I had a telephone meeting to discuss many things.  One of those things was Juice Caboose.  So when I tell you what the decision was, and why it was made, on Juice Caboose, it's because I was part of that decision-making process.
     
    You were not present at any Roadfood policy discussions.  For that matter, neither was Chris - he wasn't yet part of the Roadfood team.  All you have is a second hand telling of a conversation between Chris and Michael.

      I put the word "conversation" in quotes because I wasn't sure if it was a meeting, a discussion or whatever, however I think I know "first hand" the conversation I had with Chris, in fact others were there too. It was at the "glee club meet up" last February at Doe's in Greenville.  I doubt Chris would misinterpret a conversation he had with Michael.

        If Chris told us his interpretation, that would be one thing.  But you are telling us about a conversation that you were not present for.  Little credibility there.

          It's nitpicking, anyway.  Back to your original point: if you believe that Roadfood was once strictly regional, and now it's about diners, drive-ins, and dives, then you are wrong.  And that's a fact.

              I think we are all moving away from the initial intent of this thread which was about a  trip I had out west. I think the best thing to do is to just let things be and move on.

              I never thought I would make it to as many Basque Restaurants as I did.  We don't have any  here in New England at all, so since I had no idea when I would ever be back out in "Basque Country" I would hit as many as I possibly can.

                  I don't have any quirks.



                I've delegated that role to Hoffman - he makes all the final decisions regarding who has quirks and who doesn't!

                    No the only thing we consult Mr  Hoffman on is "quirks"

                      I think it's great that you were able to hit as many Basque places as you did. That's what I would do if I found myself in those areas. It would be hard for me to not ask if I could go back in the kitchen and watch them cook.

                        Hey, wanderingjew, I hope you'll be submitting some restaurant reviews from this trip.  The reviews you did for California were excellent.

                          I had never heard of a Basque restaurant until  I read my copy of Roadfood.  As a      result,  we ate at a Basque restaurant on our first trip  across the country.  it was the Basque Restaurant  in the Santa Fe Hotel in Reno, Nevada.................................fun to remember.

                            Yes, definitely.

                            I think the Basque presence has been missing so I'll probably hit those reviews first. I might start as early as this weekend.

                            And thanks!

                              You are misinformed -- not a terribly unusual occurrence. Hoffman makes all the final decisions as to who lives or dies. He subcontracts quirks decisions.

                                          Such an awesome, fun, jealousy-inspiring report, WJ.  

                                          As I'm unsure how much of the bs to follow is "teasing" and "not" I'll just poke my nose out of that part of it all. 

                                          But, you've done something noone has ever done - convinced me that a trip through Utah might be a good idea.

                                            In 4,800 miles and 23 days out west on our camping trip I think I finally touched part of WJ's trip. We passed through Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay but we made our own meals in the CG in South Lake Tahoe.

                                            We are in Zion NP tonight. We were in Las Vegas last night. Spent the evening on the Strip but ate dinner at the Hash House A Go Go on West Sahara Drive and had maybe my biggest BPT ever.

                                            Never noticed any Basque restaurants yet. We'll be in southern Utah for a week and then on to Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

                                              What an incredible report -- thanks!

                                              This cracks me up.


                                              The buffalo nuts are on the right and the bull nuts are on the left. Crunchy, earthy and nutty.


                                              Well yeah....

                                              You're a buffalo chili eating machine. Question: do you finish meals that you find to be substandard?

                                              Thanks again.

                                                Good question.

                                                It depends on the following:
                                                How Much I spent
                                                How Hungry I am

                                                Usually a disappointing meal is just that- disappointing- I compare it to going to McDonald's or Chili's and having a mediocre or bland meal- so the answer to your questions almost always yes.

                                                The only time I won't finish a meal is if I'm truly stuffed or if the meal is just downright nasty. The last disgusting meal I had was at Harold's BBQ in Atlanta- not only did I not finish the meal, but I left almost all the pork bbq on the plate. (The Cornbread and Brunswick Stew were really good though)
