Re: the menu
Look for yourselves:
Breakfast is great, and never a wait for a table (yet!).

All the bad-ass 1%s can stay at Johnny's. Who needs that attitude?
I used to be married to one, and I emphasize "used to be".
Most of the bikers I know have grown out of that phase.

Jesse and Maggie and their staff are great and caring folks. They'll even put up your scoot and make sure you get home safe if you decide you've had too much to do it yourself. Who else does that around here?

Saturday morning, and music

It *was* a splendid Saturday for walking downtown, and a great Sunday on the patio at Replay.

I think more people need to intro themselves to the street musicians and so can call them by their names, ie there's Guitar Dave, jazzman D, etc.
There are real people behind those instruments and voices, get to know their stories and you've got material for several more blogs.

Have a great one,

Life, liberty and a smoke

>>Let's just get rid of it, and smoke 'em if you've got 'em on your own time, and in your own environment. I'm sick of doing laundry.

You know, every time I wear my clothes I have to wash them because that's what I do, regardless of smoke smell. My own environmentto enjoy a smoke and a drink happens to be the narrow smoky Red Lyon. Your environment happens to be the beer garden at the Replay. You can enjoy plenty of smoke-free places and even have a couple of bars in town that cater to your choice. Don't take my right to choose my environment away from me.

and Jester, the poll is simple: go into any bar and count the packs of cigarettes/patrons. I'd have to offer that most of the employees smoke as well.

Why not make the ordinance apply to eating establishments only?
After all, having a non-smoking section in an open area is a bit like a non-peeing section in the swimming pool, isn't it?
I'm a social smoker (I don't smoke at home) and wouldn't mind if the dining establishments banned smoking, but I'll be upset if my local pub ends up having to enforce non-smoking.
